Rumors have been all over the net this past week about the CW series Girlfriends being canceled. We were waiting for some legit news to hit the net and here it is, an official statement from MARA BROCK AKIL creator of the series.
Mara Brock Akil, Creator/ Executive Producer of Girlfriends releases statement.
“Although it’s always difficult to say goodbye, I choose to focus my energy on the history that Girlfriends has made, the human stories that we told, the beautifully complex images that we projected and the blessings 172 episodes bestowed on us, both personally and professionally. I am immensely thankful to the amazingly talented cast, writers, directors, staff and crew for their endless dedication and hard work for eight seasons, to the network that always wanted us and the studio that always supported us, but mostly to the audience, especially African-American women, who took the time to tune into us every Monday night at nine to have a dialogue with us and who have been our partner in this journey. I am currently in talks with the studio and network on putting together a retrospective show which will honor and celebrate this landmark series, so please stay tuned.”
Hopefully they do a final episode or that would be messed up.
