Soap operas come and go, but then there's Neighbours. Last year, after 37 years on the air in Australia, loyal viewers bid a tearful farewell to the residents of Ramsey Street, set in the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough, in what they believed was a fitting series finale. Many future international superstars who all received their break on the series, like Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, and Natalie Imbruglia, returned to pay homage and respects, either in person or through video messages cleverly worked into the storyline. However, a funny thing happened after the sets were dismantled, and the dust had settled -- Amazon Studios decided that Neighbours wasn't quite ready to be retired. Believe it or not, it's not the first time this has happened to the series.
