Freevee rescued the series following its cancellation in 2021. Neighbours announced it would no longer air on Australia’s Network 10 or Britain’s Channel 5 after a 37-year run, due to the UK network pulling funding from the show.

The new season of Neighbours has been scheduled to launch on Freevee in the fall.
