Neighbours has released a first look at the revival series as we meet a new family in Erinsborough.

The show is due to return next week on Amazon Freevee, with some fresher faces set to join the ensemble alongside more familiar ones.

Among them are the Varga-Murphy family, consisting of mums Remi and Cara and teenage sons JJ and Dex, who are set to rock up as Jane Harris rents her home out on an Airbnb-type site called Rent-A-Home.

Remi and Cara explain how someone just knocked on the door of their previous home and made them an offer to buy, and they are planning to stay with Remi's parents while they build their new home.

However, her parents aren't "quite ready" for them yet, hence they need a place to live for the time being.

Jane, who is preparing for the big mysterious wedding that is set to take place, tells them to make themselves at home as she heads off to finish getting dressed, before JJ gets spooked by the iconic Mrs Mangel portrait hanging on the wall.

A description of the family reads: "Despite their different outlooks on life, mothers Cara and Remi are a united front when parenting their teenage sons, JJ and Dex. The household is full of love and playful energy, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect fireworks.

"Someone in the family has an ulterior motive for being in Erinsborough... And it’ll have explosive ramifications for their neighbours."

Neighbours' executive producer Jason Herbison said of the Varga-Murphys: "It feels fitting that the new season will herald the arrival of a new household, with many new stories to tell. They have fitted into Erinsborough beautifully, they are warm, fun and also very unpredictable."

Neighbours returns on September 18, with new episodes streaming on Mondays to Thursdays for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US. Network 10 will retain first-run rights in Australia for the new series.
