Series Co-Creator Dan Levy Wanted Fans to Have a Satisfying End to the Series
Series co-creator Dan Levy (who also plays David Rose on the show) told ABC News that he wanted to end the series while it was still at its peak in order for fans to have something they can “cherish” year after year and not look back at with disappointment.
“It was important for me that this show remains something that people cherish and that people go back to and revisit year after year or put on when they’re feeling blue,” Levy said. “And in order to do that, you really need to be aware of when is the right time to say goodbye.”
Levy also told The Hollywood Reporter, “Season six felt like a great time to end on a high note with our fans and to give them exactly what they wanted without overstaying our welcome.” He added in a statement on Twitter, “We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning.”
Actress Emily Hampshire Encourages Fans to Keep an Eye out for an Easter Egg During the Finale
Emily Hampshire, who plays motel owner Stevie Budd, is certain the series finale won’t disappoint fans, and she encourages viewers to keep an eye out for a fun, final Easter egg during the last episode of the series.
“I can say, with 100 percent certainty, that people will be satisfied with how the show ends,” Hampshire said, according to the New York Post. “It’s not one of those finales where you watch it and are disappointed by the ending. People might be sad the show is ending, but it ends so perfectly.”
The actress added, “There’s an Easter egg you can watch for: our very final scene was our last scene together with all of us — the very last scene we shot — so there’s a lot going on for us, not just on the show but in saying goodbye to each other.”
