Neighbours is sadly inching closer to the end, with filming wrapping up last week and the last episode due to hit Australian screens in August.

To promote the hotly anticipated series finale, Channel Ten has released a trailer made up of the soap’s most memorable storylines.

The trailer starts with one of the most-watched TV moments, the 1987 Scott Robinson and Charlene Mitchell wedding. Played by Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue, the episode was watched by almost 22 million people in Australia and the UK.

“These were the moments that made TV history,” the trailer reads, before showing Toadie and Dee’s terrifying 2003 car accident.

Shots of actors Guy Pearce, Margot Robbie and Jesse Spencer were all pictured in the trailer, as was David and Aaron’s same-sex wedding.

The trailer then shows text on screen saying: “In the final months, how will it all end?” before showing a shot of a funeral casket being carried.

Devastated fans have rallied to stop the show from being cancelled, but after Fremantlemedia lost their key broadcast partner Channel 5, there was no way to save Ramsay Street.

When Neighbours posted a final cast and crew photo on social media, heartbroken fans flooded the post with comments.

“I’m going to miss Neighbours, it’s the end of a great Aussie era. Many wonderful actors and a start for many success stories. Thank you for the memories,” one wrote.

“I was one of those school kids bunking off school till they put the repeat on at 5.35 after Grange Hill back in 1988. I have watched since. I am going to miss it so much, it really breaks my heart,” another added.

“What an iconic show, it’s the end of an era and I feel like I’m losing a big bunch of friends,” a third chimed in.

“This is beyond sad, I’ve not missed an episode for 32 years. A real joy and stress reliever after school and now work. So many will be lost without you all” another heartbroken fan wrote.

Margot Robbie's thoughtful gift

This comes after Hollywood star Margot Robbie sent expensive champagne to the Neighbours cast and crew for their last day of filming, with many cast members appreciative of the thoughtful touch.

She specifically sent 37 bottles of champagne to celebrate the 37 years the show had been on screen, making it the longest-running Australian soap in history.

While she wasn’t able to return for any final episodes, Alan Fletcher (Karl Kennedy), Emerald Chan (Sadie Rodwell) and April Rose Pengilly (Chloe Brennan) shared their thanks on social media for the kind gesture.

The Harley Quinn actress had previously opened up about her time on Neighbours while eating spicy chicken wings on popular YouTube series Hot Ones.

“You just learn an incredible discipline and you can work really, really fast. You’re really conscious of everybody else’s jobs,” she reminisced.

The star also revealed that the producers refused to kill off her character Donna Freedman when she left the show for Hollywood, as they wanted to leave the door open for her to return.
