Neighbours is officially coming back to TV.

Yep, it's the news we all hoped but never really believed we'd hear, but the lads are getting the gang back together for another go.

Earlier this year, fans of the long-running Aussie series were devastated when it was announced it was being axed once and for all.

Millions of viewers around the world were at a loss as to what they would do, how they would fill their days without their daily Erinsborough fix.

People even started petitions to keep the show alive, but to no avail.

Announcing that the show was being cancelled, the Neighbours Twitter account said: "We are so sorry to say that after nearly 37 years and almost 9,000 episodes broadcast we have to confirm that Neighbours will cease production in June.

"Following the loss of our key broadcast partner in the UK and despite an extensive search for alternative funding, we simply have no option but to rest the show.

"To our amazing, loyal fans, we know this is a huge disappointment, as it is to all of us on the team. We thank you for all your messages and support and promise to end the show on an incredible high. From here on, we are celebrating Neighbours."

However, it looks like there really is life in the old dog yet.

In a post to Twitter earlier today (17 November), the show said: "Neighbours will return for a brand-new series next year exclusively on @AmazonFreevee, alongside thousands of episodes from previous seasons to stream as you please.

"#Neighbours will be available on @AmazonFreevee in the UK and US and will return to @channel10au in Australia.

"We can’t thank you all enough for your love and support and are so excited for this new adventure."

And the news has gone down a storm with the show's army of loyal fans.

Commenting on the post, one viewer said: "Hooray! Anyone else a bit teary?"

Another chipped in: "I am actually crying tears of joy....thanks soooooo much for this. I cannot wait. Thanks to everyone for make this happen!"

"OH MY ACTUAL GOD. EVERY CHRISTMAS AND BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER," screeched a third.

While another added: The best news ever! I am so emotional right now!"
