Story by Kaylee Rucker | Reporter
From big Marvel movies to small TV series, many viewers favorites are coming to an end in 2019.
According to tvseriesfinale.com, there are already 103 series not coming back for the 2019-2020 season. Many of these series have been cancelled or are ending for different reasons.
“Game of Thrones” finale aired on May 19, 2019. It was the eighth season and left fans sad that it’s finally over.
“I’m really upset ‘Game of Thrones’ ended because it was the best show in the world. I started watching it because other people were talking about how good it was and after the first episode I couldn’t stop watching. It’s going to be hard to find a show that compares to ‘Game of Thrones’,” sophomore Danny Cape said.
According to vox.com, “Game of Thrones” first aired on April 17, 2011. The series is about a medieval country's civil war and is based on fictional continents.
According to metro.co.uk, the series came to an end because the storyline was naturally coming to an end and George Martin thought it was the right time to end the show.
“The Big Bang Theory” series finale aired on May 16, 2019, after 12 seasons of the show. The first episode aired on September 24, 2007.
“I’m sad ‘The Big Bang Theory’ is ending because it was one of my favorite shows. It was my favorite because I could watch it with my family,” sophomore Nathan Woolverton said.
According to ew.com, the series came to an end because one of the main stars, Jim Parson, decided he was ready to leave the show. The actors earned $1 million per episode and he was offered more than a $50 million bonus if he stayed for two more years.
“Fuller House”, the sequel to “Full House”, which aired from 1987 to 1995, is next on the chopping block. The actors are the same from the original, now with their own children in the sequel. They even used the same house and set for the show.
“I enjoyed the show ‘Fuller House’ because I grew up watching ‘Full House’. It was really cool to get to see how the kids turned out later in life,” sophomore Abby O’Malley said.
According to eonline.com, the fifth and final season will air in the fall of 2019. The show had 14.4 million viewers during the first season. The stars have been posting online sharing their thoughts on the show ending. Candace Cameron-Bure shared with E News that she would play the actor DJ Tanner for the rest of her life.
