Neighbours have released 15 new photos showing what’s in store as we head into our third week back in Erinsborough.
The show returned to Amazon Freevee and Network 10 on Monday 18th September, and in the first three episodes we’ve seen the surprise wedding of Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou), mysterious new character Reece (Mischa Barton) unmasked as a member of the Sinclair family, and hints at romance for Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) and Haz Devkar (Shiv Palekar).
The Varga-Murphy family have also made a splash as they move into Number 24, with suggestions that son JJ (Riley Bryant) has a connection to someone or something on Ramsay Street.
Perhaps hinting as to what’s to come, JJ has been described as a kid who “battles bouts of insecurity and self-doubt.” The combination often lands JJ in trouble, “as he’s known to act before thinking through the consequences.”
Now, 15 new pictures reveal that Haz and Mackenzie’s relationship will blossom as they hang out at the Number 32 pool, where they’re living alongside Byron Stone (Xavier Molyneux).
Mac is set to throw caution to the wind in episodes airing from Monday 2nd October, while newly married Toadie, alongside daughter Nell (now played by Ayisha Salem-Towner after the character was re-cast), will visit Sonya’s memorial.
The rivalry between Reece Sinclair and Paul Robinson will continue, with new photos showing the pair looking tense as they talk in Paul’s office.
Finally, photos show Harold (Ian Smith) surrounded by his loved ones as his “fears for the future reach breaking point”.
Keep scrolling for all the pictures.

With Toadie’s wedding to Terese taking everyone by surprise, will a trip to the memorial help the father and daughter deal with their emotions?
Elsewhere, Paul’s hubris grows as he inches closer to unmasking the truth.
The new photos show Reece Sinclair in Paul’s Lassiters office. While Paul will do his best to impress Reece in upcoming episodes, things are set to go south pretty quickly, with a recent trailer showing Paul telling Reece: “I do not have to answer to you, and I never, ever will”.
Talking to Back to the Bay recently, Mischa Barton explains: “Paul always feels threatened, but he immediately feels extremely threatened by the fact he realises that I have more to do with the actual Lassiters money side of things and what that really means for him.
“We start arguing pretty quickly after that. So yeah, that’s where a lot of the drama ensues from.”
Meanwhile, JJ’s search for answers reaches the point of no return.
