I’m not ready to say goodbye! Every year the series inevitably come to an end, but this does not mean that our favorite characters are easily dismissed.
After several difficult years, when we faced delays in filming and postponement of premieres amid the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, TV plans for 2022 turned out to be wavering.
Fan favorites such as “Grace and Frankie,” “This Is Us” and “The Walking Dead” prepared to say goodbye to the audience, although many TV fans were not ready for the finale.
“We are both delighted and heartbroken that Grace and Frankie will be returning for the seventh, albeit final, season. We are so grateful that our show was able to solve problems that are truly connected to our great generation,” stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who play Grace Hanson and Frankie Bergstein, respectively, said in a joint statement in September 2019. “And their children, and, surprisingly, their children too! We will miss these two old girls, Grace and Frankie, as well as many of their fans, but we will still be there. We’ve been through so many things—I just hope we don’t outlive the planet.”
Brooklyn Decker, who played Grace Mallory Hanson’s daughter in the Netflix hit, was thrilled to work with the two legends, saying goodbye to the show in April.
“It was the privilege of a lifetime. Thanks to our writers, our crew, our actors, our partners and families,” Decker wrote on Instagram on April 24 ahead of the final chapter of the Grace and Frankie series on Netflix later that month. “I can’t believe it’s been 8 years, I still can’t believe we were shut down during the pandemic and then were able to come back and finish everything perfectly.”
The Ohio native continued: “To everyone who laughed and cried with us — thank you for watching, thank you for being with us on this trip. To the women depicted [Tomlin, Fonda and June Diane Raphael], you all mean so much to me. I am the happiest woman in the world.”
The cast of “This is Us” announced the completion of the sixth and final season during 2022. The family drama, which ends May 24, stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley.
“And it’s really like the torch she’s carrying, and I think… it’s a really special thing to meet people I’ve never met before and be able to cry with them in the bathroom about what they’re going through.”
