I have no idea how they are going to bring all these characters back since at least one of them is dead, but Neighbours is certainly looking to celebrate the milestone by bringing back some well-loved and long ago characters.

List so far:

TEN Neighbours 30 Years:

A special on Ten's main channel, airing in March, to celebrate the 30th birthday of the globally successful soap. Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce will all participate. It will feature many other former stars, favourite scenes, anecdotes and even tackle some myths — such as the belief it became an instant hit after moving from to Ten from Channel Seven in the mid-1980s. It took about a year to become a ratings smash, boosted by a house and land package viewer competition, Ten's drama chief Rick Maier said.

The special will even include an "affectionate nod to Bouncer", Ramsay Street's long-departed pet pooch.

Looking forward to all of them especially with the returns of Sky and Janelle who were a part of my favourite era of Neighbours personally.

I love how Neighbours pays tribute to its show in anniversary years so well. It did the same for its 20th anniversary in 2005 bringing back many old favourites in that year!

It should be fantastic and I can't wait for March next year! :)

Very interesting. I can't wait to see how they explain all these people parading through the streets from yesteryear.
I'm actually quite liking the news of Janelle coming back, and Sky. They were more my "vintage" of watching so I quite enjoyed their characters :)

Yes many Blokes I talked to recently are pleased with this news.

That being said I unlike other fans have a disappointment at how the show been run for the past few years. I accept many characters and actors have moved on to bigger things, unable to return or do not want to!

I heard former guests and regulars have appeared on other series.

So its nice to wish for things to happen yet reality says differently.

I'm really looking forward to this, but it's such a shame Channel 10 is doing so little to promote the show and the 30th anniversary. I haven't even seen a single ad for the special and it's meant to be in March. I just don't understand why they can't show ads on the main channel like 7 and 9 do for their digital channels and given it is the 30th anniversary, they should be going all out. What about little short snippets from throughout the history of the show appearing during the ad breaks? Anything really to promote it, because it's fading in the ratings quickly. Could be just because of the tennis, but something needs to be done.
