Neighbours spoilers follow.
Neighbours fans will see a new character introduced to the Rodwell household next month.
James Beaufort has been cast in the role of Andrew's brother Felix, who'll make his first appearance on the show in early March.
Newly-released spoiler pictures show Felix receiving warm greetings from Andrew, Wendy and Sadie Rodwell.
It's not long before Felix appears to have made himself at home at Number 26, hinting at a close relationship between the family.
Further on down the line, he'll also be sharing scenes with the Rodwells' teenage neighbour JJ Varga-Murphy.
Neighbours' official synopsis for Felix's first episode on Wednesday, March 6 reads: "The Rodwell house expands as three become four."
The next episode on Thursday, March 7 adds: "Felix is confronted by a terrifying possibility."
Show bosses have also teased Felix's potential connection to JJ. The teaser billing for Wednesday, March 13 says: "Felix is drawn to JJ, despite his best efforts."
Thursday, March 14's billing adds: "JJ draws on Felix's advice. Felix makes a fateful decision."
Further details on Felix's character will be revealed nearer the time, as Neighbours generally releases fuller synopses for each episode a week before broadcast.
These early clues raise the possibility that the mystery of JJ's father could be revisited in upcoming scenes.
When JJ moved to Erinsborough with his family in September, he was determined to track down his biological father and investigated the possibility that it was Andrew.
A DNA test later confirmed that this wasn't the case, but Andrew still seemed to be holding something back from the rest of his family.
Neighbours releases new episodes from Mondays to Thursdays for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US. In Australia, the show airs from Mondays to Thursdays at 4pm on Channel 10, with a 6.30pm repeat screening on 10 Peach.
