Neighbours cast awaiting production start date and storyline details trends now
The Neighbours cast are still waiting to receive details about the show's return date and storyline.
Alan Fletcher, who plays the character of Karl Kennedy on the soap, told TV Tonight on Thursday the cast 'know nothing' so far.
'All I know is what has been announced in the media. Everyone's very tight-lipped about the future for the show,' he said.
'The task is so large, that they just have to step by step work their way through that. So we haven't got specific deadlines on anything at the moment that we're aware of.'
He confirmed the show will begin filming 'reasonably soon' and Neighbours should be back on screens by the end of this year.

The series will air for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US and will include streaming rights to thousands of episodes from previous seasons. The series will stream on Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.
The continuation of the long-running soap series follows the finale in 2022, which was watched by millions of adoring fans.
Annie Jones (as Jane Harris), Rebekah Elmaloglou (as Terese Willis), Georgie Stone (as Mackenzie Hargreaves), and Tim Kano (as Leo Tanaka) will reprise their roles as series regulars, after the show was axed by Australia's Network 10 last July.
Returning in guest roles are Ian Smith (as Harold Bishop), April Rose Pengilly (as Chloe Brennan), and Melissa Bell (as Lucy Robinson).
They will be joined by Neighbours icons Stefan Dennis, Ryan Moloney, and Jackie Woodburne.

Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD original content and programming, Amazon Studios, recently said: 'Neighbours has captivated its audience for nearly 40 years, building a dedicated and loyal following for the lives and stories of the characters on Ramsay Street.
'With the power of streaming, we're able to offer a catalogue of thousands of Neighbours episodes for new audiences to discover this legendary series and current fans to relive their favourite moments.
'We look forward to immersing the audience in new Ramsay Street experiences when we relaunch the show next year for Amazon Freevee and Prime Video customers.'

A source previously told The Sun: 'Fans loved the fact that Neighbours was a soap which was served up on a constant, regular basis — they couldn't get enough of it.
'And the fact that it was always aired each weekday during its 37-year run was one of the reasons it was special in the minds of devotees.
'So while they'll rejoice at the news of the revival, they might yet be disappointed by what form it takes.'
After the announcement, fans went wild for the happy news, taking to Twitter to express their joy.
They wrote: 'OMG OMG OMG everyone, this is the best thing that's happened this year!!'
'Crikey. Amazon has picked up Neighbours? Astonishing.'
'Obsessed by the idea that Amazon are putting 37 years of Neighbours episodes on Prime. Some absolute legend out there will sit and binge them all.'
'I literally can't believe it am ecstatic so happy for the cast and crew and most of all us the fans #neighbours #neighboursforever I've missed it so much.'
Others were not as happy and wrote: 'Just let it die.'
'Neighbours is starting again. oh no.'
