Passions: The Soap is Really Over This Time

PassionsSince DirecTV announced that it would not be renewing the Universal Media Studios-produced soap for another season, fans have been hoping that another solution could be found to keep the supernatural storylines going. Unfortunately, those chances were layed to rest last week.

At the wrap party on Friday, execs told the cast and crew that the soap’s run was indeed over. Though they’d been searching for a way to continue Passions via another channel or the Internet, their efforts have failed.

On her website, McKenzie Westmore (Passions’ Sheridan Crane) wrote an emotional message to her fans, “I guess I never posted before about a farewell to Passions because I didn’t really want to believe that it was over until we actually filmed a final scene. Well my friends, that day has come. It was a very sad day in Harmony, a town in which we all must say goodbye to. The last and final episode was shot today and emotions were very high as we were all so upset to say goodbye to one another and our second home of 4024 Radford Ave.”

She continued, “I will never forget my days in Paris; filming in Oxnard; the boat (and of course the tango) with Galen; and so many more memorable scenes. It’s still not completely sinking in (but the tears are) that this is all over. But, all good things must come to an end and I want to thank all of you for your amazing love and support through the years! You have been the best fans a soap could ever ask for and your loyalty to me as an actress and the show has always been appreciated!”


Though there’s been no confirmation from the studio as yet, Universal and Premiere Props have announced that they will be holding a two-day sale of Passions props and costumes next weekend.

The soap won’t immediately sign off as enough episodes have been shot so that Passions will continue to run on DirecTV through August 2008. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    Cant beleive you would cancel a soap that is so good. It different then the other soaps. Its funny at times, and sad other times, it keep you on watching just to see whats going to happen. I VOTE to keep it on. How about the rest of you people out there?

    Can you believe I am 59 years old and have not missed a day of passions. I am sick it has ended. Sounds funny but it has been a big part of my life. At least could we be told what some of the actors are moving onto?
