Since 2017/18? There you do. Thanks for that.

How good is the current Krista and Chelsea plot? Just watching last weeks eps. These two are playing this storyline perfectly. Good to see the show back to what it does best.

And full credit to both actresses who are playing those roles. They have been a great find.

At the moment Neighbours is much more interesting than Home and Away. Both have characters who aren’t really working but currently H&A has more than Neighbours.

According to Sunday Herald Sun’s Fiona Byrne, Rosemary Daniels will be written out of the show as an off-screen death on next week’s (May 13-16) episodes, after the sad passing of portraying actress Joy Chambers last September at 76.

It was reported earlier this week. The storyline is buing used an explanation for Stefan Dennis taking a break from the show.

Does every major actor have to take a months break or something?

It seems like the “big four” actors have contracts which allows them to take extended holidays throughout the year. I think we are seeing episodes filmed from the end of last year/start of this year so some of the actors had an extended Christmas/New Year’s break.

Plus, we know Jackie Woodburne had a big international holiday planned before the show returned so she negotiated to have an extra long break from the show. Stefan Dennis had an accident on a skiing trip early this year throwing his planned storylines into chaos, so he’s going to be gone for quite a while too.

They really need to get a Friday edition.

What for? It was always their lowest rating episode of the week.

The deal with Amazon is for a certain number of episodes per year. Four episodes per week is all they’re willing to fund.

Keep the afternoon weekday line up similar 5 days a week.

It’s not up to 10 unfortunately. It’s commissioned primarily as a streaming show that drops at 7am Monday to Thursday in the UK. It doesn’t have that problem of needing to fit into a nice and neat schedule.

Because now I’m addicted to the reboot, Fridays make me sad :disappointed:

Go out and party like many people do on Fridays :laughing: (which is why ratings slip).
