Robbie’s return was announced along with a host of other former stars, including house actor Jesse Spencer and singer Delta Goodrem. Robbie, 32, played Donna Freedman on the series from 2008 to 2011.
Kylie Minogue’s Charlene Mitchell and Jason Donovan’s Scott Robinson will also return for the finale, alongside a host of other former stars. They are joined by Peter O’Brien, who appeared as Shane Ramsay in the first episode of the series, Ian Smith, who played Harold Bishop, Mark Little as Joe Mangel, and Paul Keane, who played Des Clarke.
Smith said: “It’s an absolute pleasure to be back. I’m the biggest sook under the sun. I’ll shock the last night Neighbors airs. It will truly be the end of an era and I’m so proud to have been a part of it.”
Following speculation in The Sun in June, Britain’s Channel 5 confirmed the show would no longer air on the station “beyond this summer”. A channel spokesman said: “After this summer, Neighbors will no longer air on Channel 5.
It’s been a hugely popular part of our schedule for well over a decade and we’d like to thank the cast, Fremantle and the entire production team for their fantastic work on this iconic series. Of course, we also want to thank the fans for their loyal support of Neighbors over the years.”
The statement also said: “We are aware that this decision will disappoint, but our current focus is to increase our investment in original British dramas, which are very appealing to our viewers.”
