Neighbours Spin-Off for My5


Channel 5 has commissioned a spin-off of the classic Australian drama Neighbours for its My5 VOD service.

The 5×22-minute Neighbours: Erinsborough High will explore what goes on behind the school gates of Erinsborough High during exam period, with the disappearance of one of the Year 12 students sparking a number of revelations. The storyline will run in parallel to the linear show on Channel 5 and will feature well-known characters from the hit show along with some new faces.

Neighbours: Erinsborough High is set to debut on My5 across one week in November, complementing Neighbours, which airs daily on Channel 5 and is available via catch-up on My5.

Oli Thomas, VP of digital lead at Channel 5 said: “Neighbours continues to be a popular show which has brought enjoyment to audiences for many years, so it’s hugely exciting to bring its first-ever spin-off series to fans in the U.K. exclusively on My5.”
