April Rose Pengilly Reveals How Sad She Is To Say Goodbye To Neighbors As Show Ends After 37 Years On Air

Channel 10’s beloved Australian soap Neighbors has finally come to an end for good and last Wednesday the cast and crew gathered on set for a special finale event.

And star April Rose Pengilly shared the moment on her social media, as a way of saying how sad she was to say goodbye.

Posting on Instagram, the 34-year-old beauty paid a touching tribute to the entire team behind the long-running series.

Describing her feelings as ‘raw’, April, who plays fan favorite Chloe, said: ‘I have so much love for my Neighbors family and all of you who have supported us.

‘Thank you.’

Neighbors was canceled after the UK’s Channel 5 decided in March not to renew its contract with production company Fremantle to finance and broadcast the series.

April, who is the daughter of INXS star Kirk Pengilly, revealed on her Instagram story that she was heartbroken to learn that “our sets, my home for the last four and a half years, were already being destroyed.”

Promising she would have more to say ‘later’, April thanked the producers of Neighbours, Fremantle and Channel 10, for the special farewell dinner.

Earlier this month, the TV Week Logie Awards drew widespread criticism for failing to properly acknowledge Neighbors’ cancellation during the ceremony.

But it looks like Australia’s longest-running soap opera will get the sendoff it deserves at the upcoming AACTA Awards ceremony.

The AACTA Awards, sponsored by Foxtel, are set to invite the cast of Neighbors onstage and ‘say goodbye,’ Foxtel Executive Director of Drama Brian Walsh told MediaWeek.

“It was a huge disappointment for me, especially as we had the cast of Neighbors in the room. What would it have taken to let them go on stage and have their moment?’ said Walsh, who worked as a publicist for Neighbors in the 1980s.

Walsh described the Logies’ farewell as “sneering” and added: “If we’re going to celebrate success on a night like the Logies’, then for God’s sake let a show that has entertained audiences for 37 years have your moment and take a bow.’

The final episode of Neighbors will air in Australia and the UK on August 1.
