For the first time ever Neighbours will air all Summer long

But can you handle all the hot new drama?

It's the best Christmas present for any avid Neighbours fan, with Network 10 confirming the hit soap will air all Summer long.

For the first time in the shows 33 year history, Neighbours won't be taking any breaks during the holiday season.

Not only that, but the show will hit another major milestone during the December month as it airs its 8000th episode.

*Neighbours* will stay on the air all Summer long!

Neighbours' Executive Producer, Jason Herbison, says the team are excited for this new chapter.

"Neighbours is putting on a party this summer so slip into something comfortable and come and join us. We're serving up cocktails with twists and turns, blasts from the past, betrayal, love, lust and intrigue a plenty. It all happens on Ramsay Street and we'll be ending 2018 on a high and starting the new year with a bang."

So what's in store for viewers when the show airs over the holiday season? Well, a lot of sizzling drama.

A former Ramsay Street resident will be returning from the dead to haunt Erinsborough once more. Evil nanny Alice (Kerry Armstrong) will continue her ploy to poison a much-loved resident, and she'll stop at nothing.

We'll finally find out if Finn (Rob Mills) survived his cliff-fall at the hands of Susan (Jackie Woodburne). A shock scandal and consequent pregnancy will shake a hot new couple to its core. And, in possibly the biggest news yet, the devastating death of a fan favourite will change the lives of our neighbours forever.

Neighbours airs weeknights, 6:30pm, on 10 Peach.
