Neighbours has confirmed that the final ever episode will air in both Australia and the UK on Friday, July 29.
The Australian channel 10 Peach will also air double episodes of Neighbours from Monday, June. 13 so that they can catch up with the UK broadcast.
A Network 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight (opens in new tab): “From Monday, June 13, friends of Ramsay St can tune into double the fun, double the action with double episodes to celebrate the final season of Neighbours.”
Earlier this year, Neighbours fans were heartbroken after it was announced that the much-loved Australian soap would be axed after nearly four decades on-screen.

Channel 5 told What To Watch: "Neighbours will no longer air on Channel 5 beyond this summer. It’s been a much-loved part of our schedule for more than a decade, and we’d like to thank the cast, Fremantle, and all of the production team for their fantastic work on this iconic series.
"We’d also of course like to thank the fans for their loyal support of Neighbours across the years. We recognise that there will be disappointment about this decision, however, our current focus is on increasing our investment in original UK drama, which has strong appeal for our viewers."
After the sad news was confirmed, former Neighbours stars rallied together in support of saving the famed show, including Natalie Imbruglia, who won The Masked Singer UK season 3 and appeared in Neighbours between 1992-1994 as Beth Brennan.
Speaking on Heart FM with hosts Kelly Brook and JK, she said: "Who wants a life without Neighbours let's face it? I think at this point we just thought it was going to go on forever. People are petitioning, let's hope they pull it off!"
She went on to say: "Well, there's a character on the show who's my son! I mean, I think it’d be devastating. What's going to happen to my son?"
Neighbours has also teased Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan's return to the soap as Charlene and Scott Robinson. The famous duo will feature in the soap's last ever episode, which will air on Channel 5 on Friday, July 29 at 9pm.
Neighbours airs on weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5. You can watch the big finale double episode on Friday, July 29 at 9pm on Channel 5.
