Australian soap opera “Neighbours” made a comeback on Monday in a highly publicised reboot, nearly 14 months after the show wrapped up last year in an emotional finale after running for nearly four decades. Following an outcry from fans, streaming giant Amazon announced in November it would revive the drama, airing it in Britain and the United States on its ad-supported service Amazon Freevee. In Australia, the show will air on Channel 10, and on subscription service Prime Video, where fans in New Zealand and Canada, can also watch it. “The show is still ‘Neighbours’ and it will continue to be ‘Neighbours’, it’s just ‘Neighbours’ with a nice polish,” original cast actor Stefan Dennis, who plays the villainous, six-times married businessman Paul Robinson, told Reuters. The show features plenty of new faces, too, including “The O.C.” actress Mischa Barton, who joins as mysterious American Reece.
