“Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing,” he wrote. “While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”
As Fogelman noted in his message, yesterday’s announcement wasn’t exactly news, as he has long discussed his plan to end the show after its sixth season. Still, he clearly knew that NBC’s formal announcement regarding the show’s end would elicit strong emotional reactions—and not just from fans.
“I’m already Very emotional about my favorite job coming to an end,” actress Mandy Moore wrote in her Instagram story on Friday.
