Neighbors fans are in tears this morning as they try to come to terms with the fact that filming on the Australian soap is over for good.

The show was canceled after 37 years after channel 5 chose not to renew it for financial reasons and now, the final scene has officially been filmed.

Earlier today, show boss Jason Herbison released a final photo of the cast alongside an emotional tribute.

“We all knew this day was coming, but until we were here at this point when the last scene was filmed, it was hard to express how we would all feel,” the producer said.

“Of course, it is sad and tears have been shed, but we are also very proud. 37 years is an incredible achievement and it should be celebrated.

“We were also incredibly touched by the response from our viewers around the world. Neighbors is more than a TV show for many people.

‘They see us as part of the family and we feel privileged to have been invited into their homes, and I know the Neighbors legacy will live on for many years to come.’

Whether you’ve watched Neighbors for 37 years or become a fan recently, it’s a sad day for everyone.

Taking to Twitter to message the cast and crew and express their thoughts on the ‘this is closure’ finale, one user said: ‘To the entire cast and crew of Neighbors, thank you so much for the joy you’ve brought us for 37 years. . . We will continue to support you and fight for you. Sending love to everyone…’

Sharing the final cast photo, another Neighbors lover typed: ‘End of an era! I can’t believe it’s over! They’ve always been there, how will it be without our favorite neighbors! So incredibly sad!’

With the last episode of all time airing on August 1, several cast returns have already been announced.

Last week, we exclusively announced that Guy Pearce will reprise his role as Mike Young.

Pearce will join a prestigious list of the show’s most revered actors playing much-loved characters, including Kylie Minogue (Charlene Robinson), Jason Donovan (Scott Robinson), Ian Smith (Harold Bishop), Paul Keane (Des Clarke) and Peter O’Brien (Shane Ramsay).

Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Izzy Hoyland), Daniel MacPherson (Joel Samuel), Melissa Bell (Lucy Robinson), Mark Little (Joe Mangel), Olympia Valance (Paige Smith) and many more will also join.

It will be exciting for sure!
