Neighbours viewers concerned ending will be a 'let down' as last ever episode looms
Neighbours fans are concerned the finale will be a "let down".The special hour-long finale episode of the Australian soap opera will air on Friday (July 29) after 37 years.Channel 5 said at the time that they decided to drop the continuing drama from their schedules in favourite of "original UK drama".READ MORE: Neighbours finale trailer drops with Kylie and Jason's return and Toadie's departureThe final few episodes leading to the grand finale have been described as an on-air celebration of the show’s legacy and must-see television.A trailer for the final scenes has been released and shows what viewers can expect.However, fans have taken to social media to voice their concerns as the last ever episode air date looms.Taking to Reddit, one user penned: "Is anyone else worried the ending will be a let down?"Since it was announced it will end I was certain they’d make the finale amazing."But it’s really getting close now and there’s no sign of things turning into the heartwarming, community-filled episode I’m hoping for."I’m genuinely worried it’ll be a bit of a dud."Episodes right now should be filled with the light stuff Neighbours has always excelled at - characters all hanging out together, having barbecues, pool fun, dinners together, reminiscing about good times, reaffirming good relationships etc.Karl and Susan should be getting the blue box out, Paul and Terese may as well be back together already, David (even though I’m not a fan) should be out of prison etc."Others agreed with the message, with another fan writing: "Yes! I’m finding it very odd that storylines aren’t wrapping up yet. I was expecting either what you’ve said, or some massive interesting storyline by now.
