Former “Neighbours” cast members April Rose Pengilly and Jodi Gordon will reprise their roles of Chloe Brennan and Elly Conway when the show is rebooted.
Production has commenced on the long-running rebooted show, after it was cancelled due to funding issues, but then revived via a partnership with Amazon.
Network 10 said the duo will return to Melbourne next month for their roles. They first joined the show in 2019, with their character getting together on the eve of Elly’s wedding to Chloe’s brother, Mark.
Gordon said she is thrilled to return to Ramsay Street and see where the “Chelly” storyline goes.
“In the lead up to the final episode, I think it became clear how much this show meant to so many people, so to see it return to our screens and now be part of it again is truly a joy and a celebration. The ensemble cast and production make this show what it is today, and I’m happy to see it has a place on our Australian and UK screens again,” she said.
Pengilly added: “I am so happy that Chloe and Elly get to continue their love story, and we can’t wait to see how Chloe’s been handling step-mum life with little Aster. We continue to be blown away and grateful for the support from the #chelly fandom, and hope they enjoy this next chapter.”
Gordon also noted the emotional rollercoaster the cast and crew of the show had been on since the show was in limbo, cancelled and then revived,
Last month, it was revealed Mischa Batron would also be joining the cast of the show.
