A new trailer shared by Neighbours on social media has revealed the return of Paul Robinson's half-brother, Glen Donnelly, after 30 years.
The character, played by Richard Huggett, left Ramsay Street in 1992 after he fell from the roof of Lassiters and was diagnosed with paraplegia.
The clip also teases the return of their sister Lucy Robinson (Melissa Bell), who was last seen in 2020, ahead of what will be a heart-racing Robinson reunion.
In the trailer, Paul (Stefan Dennis) reacts to sighting Glen from a distance, which he reveals to Lucy in a private heated discussion on his apartment balcony.
Paul tells Lucy: "I saw him. I saw him. I swear."
Walking along an ocean pier moments later, Lucy tells Paul: "Glen has been gone 30 years."
Finally, the trailer unites the brothers to which Glen tells Paul: "It's been a long time."
In a recent interview with RadioTimes.com, Richard said that returning to the soap after a 30 years felt "just like being back home", adding that he ultimately comes back to "reconnect" with Lucy.
"As you know when I left, Paul and I were not on the best of terms so I come back to see Lucy and it goes on from there with all sorts of twists and turns and cliffhangers – but no hanging off of hotel roofs this time," he added.
Richard has also addressed the fact that Glen will no longer use a wheelchair when he returns, despite his previous diagnosis.
"When I was first approached that was my question, whether Glen was still a paraplegic and if he's not, how did he get out of that?" he revealed.
"But the way it's been dealt with I think is perfect. The writers have done a really good job at justifying why I'm not in a wheelchair anymore I think."
Glen and Lucy's returns will air this autumn.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
