    The Rodwell family are officially part of Ramsay Street.

    Neighbours has updated its opening titles to include the newest residents of Ramsay Street.

    On Friday (May 13), the Australian soap's Twitter account shared a look at the new opening titles which now include the Rodwell family ? Andrew (Lloyd Will) , his wife Wendy (Candice Leask) and their daughter Sadie (Emerald Chan).

    In April, police sergeant Andrew and wife Wendy expressed interest in buying Number 26, after fans had theorised that the Rodwells would move to Ramsay Street permanently.

    The family made the big move to Number 26 this week. But it hasn't been easy as daughter Sadie was involved in starting the fire at Erinsborough High earlier this year.

    In an effort to try and smooth things over with their neighbours, the family decided to host a moving-in barbecue.

    Unfortunately, the gathering didn't go to plan and the Rodwells were left wondering if they should pack up and leave after receiving the upsetting news that Hendrix (Ben Turland) is seriously ill, having been diagnosed with a lung condition called pulmonary fibrosis.

    Hendrix now needs a lung transplant in order to survive, and, with the fire that Sadie and her friend Aubrey Laing (Etoile Little) started to blame for his condition, the Rodwells became very aware that their presence on the street could be hugely difficult for him.

    However, the family aren't sure that they can afford to move for a second time, and next week they'll need to do some soul-searching as they question their place on Ramsay Street.

    The arrival of the Rodwells comes just months before the soap is set to air its last-ever on Monday, August 1.

    The final episodes will see the return of 23 characters from the soap's history including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan as Charlene and Scott Robinson.

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.

    Very hard to care about these 'new' characters when the show is ending. That applies to the guest spots, the new arrivals or those moving from guests/recurring to series regulars.

    Maybe we're still seeing episodes filmed before the decision was made, which would make sense, but there are 2.5 months left and it should be heading towards the final angle soon.

    Interesting that they?re in the titles. I wondered if maybe they?d just slowly move out all the OGs so there would be less characters. Didn?t think there?s be any new ones other than guest appearances.

    I did think it was odd to add a new family, but I think Shelia selling the house happened before cancellation of the show, so maybe that?s why?!

    Shelia sold her house because of the shows cancellation that's the reason she left

    Neighbours lines up scary return scenes for Corey Smythe-Jones
    Corey is not done with Erinsborough yet...

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...-corey-return/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    He may have been out of sight for a while now, but Corey is about to make a dramatic reappearance in Neighbours.

    The last time we saw Corey, he had abducted Harlow, drugged her, and whisked her away so she can become the latest member of his cult, The Order.

    Viewers will know that The Order was an organisation that Harlow's mum was involved in during her later years, and they are certainly a persistent bunch.

    Corey fled after Harlow was saved by Freya, Levi, and David, but Harlow soon learned he had not given up on her when she discovered that he installed spyware on her phone.

    She has been determined to use that knowledge to draw him out of hiding, but in next week's episodes, the plan is met with some resistance from Sergeant Andrew Rodwell.

    Andrew makes it clear how much he disagrees with her plan, and insists that she shut it down for her own safety.

    Harlow manages to set up a meeting with Corey, and is adamant that she knows what she is doing though. She proceeds with the plan, only to be met with a twist when Corey changes the place and the time at the very last minute.

    Andrew takes this as another sign that they are right to be wary, but there is one Ramsay Street resident looking to atone for their past sins ? Sadie.

    Reeling from what she did to Hendrix, Sadie is keen to do some good and when she gets wind of the sting operation, she recruits Zara, and they plan to try and bring down Corey themselves.

    But this soon proves to be a risky plan as the girls head into the bush and come face to face with the man himself ? and it is clear that they severely underestimated what Corey is capable of?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Tuesday, July 5 at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    The decision to end the show came after these episodes were filmed, so yes, it's a bit jarring. I'm not a fan of the new family to be honest, but I'm sure if we'd had more time, they would have developed.

    I'm sure had they known the show was ending sooner, Hendrix would have lived and he and Mackenzie would have had a happy ending.
