After a shock cancellation and then reboot announcement only a few months later, it’s hard to know what to expect from the brand new season of Neighbours when most storylines were wrapped up in what the writers of the show, and fans thought would be the last ever episode.

And whilst we are certainly not disappointed to hear that Ramsay Street will be returning to our screens, the shock return of the hit show has raised more questions, many without answers.

Production of the show is set to commence in early 2023 with a world premiere slated for the second half of the year. The show will also resume airing locally and internationally.

So far, only Stefan Dennis, Jackie Woodburne, Alan Fletcher, and Ryan Moloney have been confirmed to return to Ramsay Street.

Outside of the ”big four”, other cast members were left in the lurch about the show revival, many taking to social media to sprout their confusion as to why they were left in the dark.

However, Executive Producer Jason Herbison recently told Digital Spy that he hopes there will be ”many familiar faces,” whilst confirming that some of the young cast members have already moved on to other things.

So how did things wrap up on Neighbours?

We will be seeing these three again!

Scott (Jason Donovan) and Charlene (Kylie Minogue) returned to the screens, appearing 30 years on from Kylie’s character moving to Brisbane a year after her on-screen wedding. Given Kylie’s superstardom, it’s unlikely that we will see a repeat return of these two.

Former Ramsay Street local Joel Samuels (Daniel MacPherson) also came back for the finale, surprising his best mate Toadie (Ryan Moloney) days before Toadie gets married to Melanie Pearson (Lucinda Cowden).

Speaking of their big day, Toadie knows that Amy Greenwood (Jacinta Stapleton) has feelings for him, but goes ahead with his marriage to Melanie….will this come back as a new storyline?

Something tells us Scott and Charlene have left Ramsay Street for good.

Mike Young (Guy Pearce) also returned to Ramsay Street, reuniting with his childhood sweetheart, Jane Harris in what was 30 years in the making. After the news broke that the show was coming back, Guy shared his thoughts on Mike and Jane not ending up together ”forever” after all.

”I’ve just inadvertently committed myself to another four years,” Guy joked on The Project when he was reminded of where Mike’s story ended after he moved in with Jane and his daughter Sam.

”For 37 years I’ve been hanging out for some real closure.”

Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson), and Kyle Canning, (Chris Milligan), also said a final goodbye to Ramsay Street during the finale.

The much-loved couple decided to set up a new life together in Darwin, after finding out that they were expecting a baby, despite having a negative pregnancy test.

Kyle was determined to stay in Erinsborough but after the life-altering news, his mind was changed and he is now dead set on starting anew in a new area. Given how they said goodbye, we think there’s a fair chance this goodbye was for good.

It remains to be seen who of the 2022 cast will be returning to Ramsay Street in 2023.

Karl (Alan Fletcher) and Susan (Jackie Woodburne) had a tumultuous final season on the show as their marriage went through the ringer before they finally found their way back together, sharing a number of touching love lines to each other to reaffirm their relationship – a reminder that they are ”endgame” and would be together for decades to come after the show said its final goodbye. Given the show is coming back to life (much like their marriage), perhaps we will see more challenges arise for this golden couple?

We will update this page with new information as it becomes available.
