Neighbors original Pierce Greyson will return for a guest appearance

Neighbors has confirmed that Tim Robards is set to return as millionaire businessman Pierce Greyson for a new storyline next month – two years after he left Ramsey Street.

Robards has already starred in more than 300 episodes of the soap between his arrival in 2018 and his exit in 2020, his role having then been filled by another actor, Don Hany.

But now he’ll be back one last time before the the series is ending for good in June – and he described it as “an absolute honor” to return to the character.

“COVID state border restrictions resulted in my sudden departure and replacement in 2020 for what should have been my last month of filming,” he explained.

“I’m beyond excited and grateful to come back and see the whole team that I never got to say goodbye to. Now that the show is coming to an end, it’s such a privilege to be a part of it. one last time.”

Specific details regarding the character’s return have not been revealed at this stage, beyond the fact that he will reunite with Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) – who he was married to during his previous stint on the show.

Neighbors usually airs on Channel 5 weekdays at 1:45 p.m. A repeat of the episode also airs later that day at 5:30 p.m. Visit our dedicated site Neighbors and Soaps pages for all the latest news, interviews and spoilers. If you’re looking for more to watch, check out our tv guide.
