Posted on October 26, 2016
After close to three decades on Neighbours, their longest serving star Tom Oliver will leave the show.
TV tonight is reporting Lou will make his final appearance on the show for a storyline which begins on Friday, November 4.
It’s not all bad news, as Lou could make future guest appearances down the line. Tom Oliver is one of our all-time favourites,' Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison told the online outlet.
'In Lou Carpenter has created one of Australian TV’s most iconic characters. And, as with all things Ramsay Street, we try to keep our storylines unpredictable and surprising. Watch this space.'
The 78-year-old star has been a popular character since he first debuted on the long-running soap in 1988.
He originally was only meant to be on the show for 6 months back then.. but here we are 28 years later, saying goodbye to Lou.
