Gina Riley and Jane Turner will appear in the new footage, while other cast members, Magda Szubanski, Glenn Robbins and Peter Rowsthorn, will also appear, discussing their favourite scenes.

‘The Kath And Kim project filming in Melbourne is a clip show. There is no deep storyline, no new episode’ an alleged insider told The Herald Sun on Friday.

The Daily Telegraph earlier claimed that the beloved Australian sitcom is planning a special ‘celebrating the much loved characters’ and ‘memorable moments’. 

The special, which does not yet have an airdate, is a different project to the reboot of the series that was rumoured earlier this year. 

The show, which aired from 2002 to 2007 and starred Jane Turner and Gina Riley, will make a return next year, according to Woman’s Day.

The Melbourne home that was used as the central location for the series has been visited by crew members in recent weeks, neighbours say.

‘It was unimaginable neighbours could keep TV’s biggest secret under wraps much longer,’ a source told the magazine.

The Kath & Kim special is already in pre-production and is expected to air on a streaming platform, not a free-to-air TV channel.

Kath & Kim aired on the ABC from 2002 to 2005, and on Channel Seven in 2007.

It comes after actress Magda Szubanski, who played Sharon Strzelecki, said in May last year a reboot was off the table.   

‘I think it should be off the table… It holds such a special place in people’s memories,’ the comedian told The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

‘If we did a live show, which was a ‘best of’ or something like that, that’s different.

‘But to actually try and do a whole new series, I think you can never capture that magic again.’
