Neighbours has confirmed details of Pierce Greyson's upcoming return.

Tim Robards has reclaimed his role as Pierce for some emotional scenes which air as part of Hendrix's ongoing storyline.

Hendrix was recently told that he has a lung condition called pulmonary fibrosis. Due to the limited treatment options, he needs to undergo a lung transplant within the next three years.

In next week's episodes, Hendrix struggles after tensions with the Rodwell family lead to his condition being exposed to everyone on Ramsay Street.

As everyone reels from the news, Hendrix becomes angry over being surrounded by so much acrimony at the worst possible time.

Fortunately, a heart-to-heart with Levi Canning helps Hendrix to work through his emotions.

Hendrix also realises that, with everyone else knowing the truth, it's only a matter of time before he'll have to tell his family.

Later in the week, Hendrix and his girlfriend Mackenzie Hargreaves plan a trip to Sydney together.

Hendrix wants the holiday to be as stress-free as possible, so he decides that he won't tell his family about his condition while he's there.

When the young couple arrive in Sydney, Hendrix takes a trip down memory lane by showing Mackenzie some locations from his childhood.

Hendrix then visits his family and tries to keep his illness a secret from his dad Pierce, mum Lisa and sister Alana.

Unfortunately for Hendrix, a curious Alana notices his strange behaviour and he realises that he'll have to tell the truth after all.

With the support of his loved ones, Hendrix then decides to take another huge step forward.

Tim Robards last portrayed Pierce in 2020. Due to COVID-related travel restrictions in Australia, he bowed out from the role earlier than planned and was replaced by Don Hany, who played out the character's exit storyline.

When Pierce briefly returned in 2021, Don Hany played the part again.

Tim recently explained: "It was an absolute honour to be asked back to reprise my role as the OG Pierce Greyson! COVID state border restrictions resulted in my sudden departure and replacement back in 2020 for what should have been my last month of filming.

"I'm beyond excited and grateful to get back and see the whole team whom I never got to say goodbye to. Now knowing the show is coming to an end, it's such a privilege to be a part of it one last time."

Neighbours airs these scenes on Friday, May 20 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Thursday, June 16 on 10 Peach (Australia).
