Discussing this farewell squad, executive producer Jason Herbison shared in a statement: “Whether the eighties, nineties, naughties or teens is your favorite decade, we will be delivering something for everyone as Neighbors draws to a close.

“Alongside the current cast we will be celebrating the most memorable characters from across many eras, with a few surprises up our sleeve.”

Harold Bishop himself Ian Smith, last seen on screen seven years ago, went on to say: “It’s an absolute pleasure to be back. I’m the biggest sook under the sun. I’m going to be shocking on the last night that Neighbors tunes.

“It really will be an end of an era and I am so proud to have been a part of it.”

Daniel MacPherson, who’s returning as Joel Samuels, added: “Joining Neighbors at age 17, little did I know, was going to kick start a career that continues to be the adventure of a lifetime. To go back and play Joel one more time, was a small way to show my enormous gratitude to cast, crew and fans of the show.”
