Esther Anderson headed back to the Bay

Never let a soapie death get in the way of reviving a character….

Esther Anderson will reprise her role as policewoman Charlie Buckton in Home and Away despite being killed off a year ago.

News Limited reports Anderson, 33, will shoot “a handful” of episodes to air next year, despite dying of gunshot wounds in January.

The Gold Logie nominee left the series to try her luck in the US.

It isn’t yet clear how Charlie will return… Dallas-style dream sequence? Flashback scenes?

Neighbours recently announced the return of Detective Mark Brennan (Scott McGregor) who was also killed off, but at least his death took place off-screen, allowing writers a little more leeway to rewrite history.


  1. maybe she will appear as a ghost in the fridge like Bobby’s ghost did to Ailsa back in the day lol

  2. Thrilled to see her again, but no doubt she will be part of the long-winded river boys melodrama. So over them!

    H&A please move back to your core roots. Your current storylines leave a lot to be desired.

  3. Yep @Ruddeger, just like Stephanie March (ADA Alex Cabot) in Law And Order SVU and Paget Brewster (Emily Prentiss) in Criminal Minds both of whom we saw gunned down and buried with a funeral.

  4. Yes! I’m glad her character is coming back. Oh and Steph Scully (Carla Bonner) is also returning to Neighbours next year.

    I love that these old favourites are returning!
