The future of Neighbours seems to have been secured with news that a deal has reportedly reached between Channel 5 in the UK and FremantleMedia.
According to The Mirror, a deal has been reached covering the next 4 years.
It follows news that parent company Viacom failed to recognise the social history of the series with British viewers, triggering headlines and a petition topping 22,000 signatures.
In the end it may have been a strategy as part of contract negotiation.
Either way, it’s good news for the Aussie soap if it proves to be true.
Both Channel 5 and FremantleMedia both declined to comment.
