“To our amazing and loyal fans, we know this is a huge disappointment, it’s a disappointment for our entire team as well,” the Neighbors wrote on Twitter. The series is coming to an end due to the decision of the British Channel 5, the largest financier of the program. In early February, the channel had already announced that it would not be broadcasting the series after August. This immediately jeopardized the future of the program.
The producer of “Neighbors” had to look for a new main sponsor, but to no avail. It appears that “after the loss of our principal partner in the UK, and despite extensive research not to find alternative funding, we have no choice but to terminate the offer”.
The Australian soap featured the everyday lives of the residents of Ramsay Street and was launched in 1985. Subsequently, the series grew into an international success. The show was a huge hit, especially in the UK, and “Buren” was also watched in large numbers in Belgium. For many young actors, the series Love and Sadness served as a springboard for the career of a movie star. For example, Kylie Minogue, Russel Crowe, Guy Pearce and Margot Robbie can be seen in it.
The final episode of “Neighbors” will likely air in August. It is not yet clear how the show will end. The production company assures fans that they will do everything they can to give the show a worthwhile conclusion: “We thank you for all your messages of support and promise to finish the series at the highest level.”
