Following are spoilers for the Neighbours' finale.

Neighbours' hour-long run in the United Kingdom began tonight (July 29), and fans of the long-running program were left reeling.

After 37 years on the air, the soap is coming to an end, and the last-ever episode included a whole slate of guest appearances from actors who returned to the series for the big finale.

The return of big names like Guy Pearce, Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Holly Valance, Natalie Imbruglia, and many more gave fans a lot to be excited about.

The majority of actors tuned in via a Zoom call, expressing their love for the cast and the soap. But what stood out to them was Guy Pearce's return as Mike Young and the epic conclusion of his character Mike and Jane (Annie Jones).

Guy Pearce returning to Ramsey Street is incredible - it's good to know that even a Hollywood career hasn't made him forget where he started#NeighboursFinale

Amazing how Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, and Jason Donovan all arrived on the same day #NeighboursFinale

People were impressed that he returned to finish off his story and stayed the entire length of the episode.

Mike and Jane finally reconciled in the end, and the audience were ecstatic.

Can we talk about Guy Pearce's return to the soap that gave him his start? He didn't make a cameo or phone it in, he put in a performance and never felt like he was above everything?

Guy Pearce has reintegrated so easily. Mike and Jane are meant to be #NeighboursFinale #Neighbours #CelebratingNeighbours.

By a great distance, Guy Pearce (Mike) and Annie Jones (Jane) are the best things in this love story. A love story for the generations. #NeighboursFinale

After years of not seeing it, many reacted with a wave of nostalgia, including one person tweeting: "Must be 25 years since I saw it, not a clue what is going on, but I had to watch it."

It's been at least 25 years since I saw the show, have no clue what is going on, but had to see the #NeighboursFinale.

#NeighboursFinale had glitter, gays (with a baby), lesbian kisses, AND Kylie and Jason!! Not to mention Mike (Guy Pearce) with plain Jane!

Neighbours has been such a huge part of my life for so many years. I spent so many years watching it with people that were very special to me. It's a travesty that the program is coming to an end, but what a wonderful, beautiful way to say thank you for 37 years.

Fans shared their excitement over Holly Valance and Natalie Imbruglia's roles.

Holly Valance and Natalie Imbruglia!!!!!!!!! #Neighbours #NeighboursFinale


Susan Kennedy's (Jackie Woodburne) opening remarks at the end sparked great interest among some, who described her as "one of Australia's top actors."

Susan had the well-deserved honor of completing her book and leaving followers in awe.

Jackie Woodburne is one of the best actresses to come out of Australia, and there's been a lot of talk lately about her success stories from #Neighbours, but she's easily one of the best actresses to come out of Australia. #NeighboursFinale

Jackie Woodburne breaks my heart in minute one of the #NeighboursFInale.

Wow! Just wow! #NeighboursFinale was perfect. 25 minutes later and Im still crying. The show from Jackie Woodburne tipped me right over the edge. I'll miss this show enormously.

You were simply the best.Thank you to all of the cast and crew for being such wonderful friends to us for 37 years and for making many wonderful memories. #Neighbours#NeighboursFinale#CelebratingNeighbours @kylieminogue
