Neighbours production company Fremantle Media Australia has spoken out about the show's future amid claims that it is facing the axe.
Rumours have been rife recently about the popular Aussie soap's future, following reports that it could be in danger of being dropped by Channel 5.
The Mirror claimed over the weekend that talks between the channel and production company FremantleMedia have hit a wall, adding that American company Viacom – who bought Channel 5 back in 2014 – aren't keen on renegotiating for the soap either.
But Fremantle Media has attempted to reassure worried fans that Neighbours is in safe hands, insisting that they are currently in the process of planning stories for next year.
"Neighbours is a fantastic show, with a legion of loyal fans around the world." a spokesperson for the production company told TV WEEK.
"We enjoy a great working relationship with our broadcast partners, and already have some exciting story plans for next year."
And the good news just keeps coming as even the Neighbours cast have been keen to east viewers' concerns, with Travis Burns and Andrew Morley taking to Twitter to address the rumours.
During a post praising the soap's big London episodes – due to air this week – Andrew said: "Oh and just to confirm, Neighbours isn't going anywhere!"
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
