There are a number of TV shows ending in 2021 (including some we don’t even know about yet). Here are five confirmed conclusions on my radar:
The workplace sitcom formerly starring America Ferrera will end with a one-hour series finale on Thursday March 25th from 8-9pm. Ferrera has said that she may return for the finale (which is just a handful of episodes after she left the show).
“YOUNGER” (TV LAND)
Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff’s romantic drama series set in NYC from creator Darren Star will wrap up with a seventh season that’s currently in production. “Younger” is one of the most successful original shows ever for TV Land, right up there with Betty White’s multicam comedy “Hot in Cleveland”. (***TV Land has not yet confirmed that “Younger”‘s final episodes will air within this 2021 calendar year, but I’ll be surprised if the premiere date isn’t until 2022.***)
“LAST MAN STANDING” (FOX)
Tim Allen’s second successful sitcom (after long-running “Home Improvement”) concludes with Season No. 9 later this spring. FOX revived it for a total of three years following ABC’s cancellation after six. Allen and his old “HI” pal Richard Karn are co-hosting the new History Channel competition series “Assembly Required”, which debuts Tuesday February 23rd at 10pm.
This June, legendary talk show host Conan O’Brien will sign off from his third late night talk show (following NBC’s “Late Night” and his brief stint on “The Tonight Show”). O’Brien has been a late night fixture for decades, and he’ll now transition over into a weekly variety series for HBO Max and more digital content for the WarnerMedia family.
“JUDGE JUDY” (SYNDICATED)
The courtroom queen and television icon is saying goodbye to her daytime dominating program after 25 years. She’s expected to move on to new, similar “Judy Justice” for IMDb TV.
