Showtime and the BBC cancelled Episodes after five seasons, but would Matt LeBlanc have remained with the comedy series if it was renewed for Season 6 or beyond?
Speaking to Variety, the actor suggested the axe fell at the right time:
We talked about it, but they felt they told their story. And there’s always the fear of jumping the shark. I definitely wouldn’t have entered into a situation where if they didn’t want to be a part of it anymore we’d do it with some other writers because then it wouldn’t be the same show. We always said we were in it together. The three of us — David, Jeffrey, and myself — always said anyone wanted out, that’s the way we’d handle it.
On how Episodes ends, he shared:
I thought it was a really nice twist at the end, what they’re writing and how my character ends up in it, too. He goes with his hat in his hand, so to speak, and he really has an ulterior motive, and they call him on it, and he doesn’t care. He’s shameless. What I like most about the end is that Sean, Beverly, and Matt are working together.
Will you miss Episodes? Was it the right time to cancel? Hoping for a TV movie revival?
