Series Finale Alert: ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Supernatural’ & 6 More Shows Entering Their Final Season
Whether we like it or not, new TV series are everywhere we look. However, in order to make room for the debut titles, several networks are saying “ta-ta” to a bunch of our all-time faves.
From Fuller House to Modern Family, keep reading for eight TV shows that are entering their final season.
1. 'Empire' (Fox)
When does the final season premiere? September 24
Season five left off on a dark note, with viewers learning that Kingsley’s (A.Z. Kelsey) body is in the mysterious coffin that was introduced earlier in the season. Not much is known about the forthcoming episodes, though we expect answers on how it all ends for the Lyon family.
2. 'Modern Family' (ABC)
When does the final season premiere? September 25
It’s the end of an era for the cast of Modern Family, who are gearing up for their 11th (and final) season. The new installment will pick up right where we left off in the season ten finale—you know, with the family adjusting to life with Haley’s (Sarah Hyland) baby.
3. 'The Good Place' (NBC)
When does the final season premiere? September 26
Now that Eleanor (Kristen Bell) has created a “Good Place” neighborhood of her own, season four will oversee her new venture. As much as we’d love to see where it leads, series creator Michael Schur recently revealed that the show wasn’t designed to last forever.
“I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right life span,” he said.
4. 'Supernatural' (The CW)
When does the final season premiere? October 10
It’s been 14 years since Supernatural aired its first episode. And now, The CW series will come to an end after 15 seasons. While the network hasn’t released any details about what to expect, executive producer Robert Singer recently revealed the ending will be “bittersweet.”
5. 'Fuller House' (Netflix)
When does the final season premiere? Fall 2019
After getting rebooted by Netflix, the Tanner family is preparing to say goodbye…again. Since season four concluded with a birth and an engagement for Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), the new episodes will likely focus on her forthcoming wedding.
6. 'The Ranch' (Netflix)
When does the final season premiere? 2019/2020
Although the Netflix series is nearing its end, we still have 20 episodes to look forward to. The final season will be split into two parts, with the first ten episodes airing in 2019, followed by the rest in 2020.
Parts seven and eight will flesh out Colt’s (Ashton Kutcher) relationship with Abby (Elisha Cuthbert), who asked to separate in the most recent installment.
7. 'Homeland' (Showtime)
When does the final season premiere? February 9, 2020
With Carrie (Claire Danes) being captured by Russian national Yevgeny Gromov (Costa Ronin) in the season seven finale, the new episodes will feature her rescue. But is she capable of transitioning back to reality?
While season eight was supposed to premiere later this year, Showtime recently pushed the final installment to 2020. Womp, womp.
8. 'Will & Grace' (NBC)
When does the final season premiere? 2020
The original sitcom ran from 1998 to 2006 before getting renewed by NBC in 2017. However, executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan and James Burrows recently announced that the reboot’s upcoming third season will be its last.
“We think of the Will & Grace reboot episodes the way Karen Walker thinks of martinis—51 is not enough, 53 is too many,” the statement read.
So, will Jack (Sean Hayes) be able to handle newlywed life with Estefan (Brian Jordan Alvarez)? And will Karen (Megan Mullally) ever stop drinking? It’s highly unlikely, but we’ll tune in anyways.
