A sad news for comedy lovers…

On Monday, the show’s co-creators, Ins Choi and Kevin White, decided to conclude the show earlier than expected because of their prior commitments. With this announcement, the season five finale— which is set to air on 13 April on CBC—will now be serving as the show’s finale.
“Given their departure from the series, we have come to the difficult conclusion that we cannot deliver another season of the same heart and quality that has made the show so special,” the producers announced on twitter. “Kim’s convenience has meant so much to our cast, writers, crew and audience around the world. Despite the restrictions and complications of shooting during the pandemic, Season 5 is our finest season to date. It’s been a privilege and a very great pleasure to work with the Kim’s family of gifted writers and performers for the last five years. Thank you to our fans for the love and support you have given this show.”
Actor Liu, who is starring as a lead man in Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings,” expressed that he’s heartbroken after learning the news of sudden ending of the show. He said that he is proud of what he has achieved in the five seasons.
