>Just when it had started to get really good again, The West Wing has decided to fly off to that big ol’ hangar in the sky. Forever.
According to AccessHollywood.com:
The multi-Emmy award winning political drama will air for the last time on Sunday, May 14 in a special two-hour broadcast.
An hour-long retrospective will be followed by a special series finale, accordiong to Kevin Reilly, NBC Entertainment President.
“We are proud to have had the opportunity to bring television viewers one of the most acclaimed series in television history,” Reilly said in a statement. “From the venerable, moving performances by the first-rate cast to the sterling creative team behind the camera, this series has left an indelible imprint on the landscape of television drama.”
I guess, like they say, all good things must come to an end. I could think of some shows other than The West Wing that could take a similar hint, but of course, those are the ones that linger forever, like indestructible cockroaches on the television landscape.
