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

    OMG, I can’t believe it is all over. Passions has been the only soap that mixed silliness, morals, and drama in one amazing package. It has always found a way to keep me on the edge of my seat, put me in tears and bring alot of laughs. It will truely be missed. I do think it was a terrible ploy on direcTV to carry it as an exclusive just to get viewers then cancel. Thank heavens I was already a customer, I would be pissed. Good luck to the cast and crew. Missing Passions already.

    I am truly going to miss Passions. I have been watching it from the beginning and It is a show I watch everyday. It has made me cry, laugh, and even get angry. Passions was always good entertainment. I wish the best to all of the cast and crew and I hope to see many of the cast members in future shows.

    Thank you for eight great years.

    NBC i cant believe you going to cancle PASSIONS a show that has been around from before i was born for a stupid ass shw called the today show
    who give a donkey ass cheeks about the today show

    it stuff like this that getts me pissed **** cancel th freakin today show if thats why your canceling passins because thats not fair atleast give them some more time to prove them selves even though they dont got **** to prove to you but give them another chance

    sorry for my language but i feel very deep about this and i really want this show to stay PLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAASSSSSSSEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! JUST THINK ABOUT IT !

  8. jhoniel says

    this is , escuse my language but this is bullshit passions is one of the best soaps there is out ther and it is unfair for it to be cancelled. for years i have never missed a paaions episode untill the show got moved to direct tv and this morning i got online to see if i could watch my favorite soap since i havent seen it in a while and come to find out its being cancelled. my reason for loving passions so much is that it makes you never want to miss an episode the show makes you want to skip schhool just to se it i am praying that its not true that its being cancelled because there are some very talented people on this show who i would like to see alot more of . these comments wont stop until i hear that passions is back.

    this news just makes me want to curse out direct tv because i feel that their at fault for this, because if passions didnt “move to stupid ass direct tv then we wouldnt have this problem.

    PASSIONS will always be my favorite soap.

    i’m 16 and i started watching Passions 8 years ago i am so upset about the cancelation passions has became apart of my life i don’t wanna let it go


    OMG, I was sooooooooooooooo sad and upset that PASSIONS is leaving for good. I was crying like a big baby. I absolutely LOVE Luis and Sheridan and Little Endora, she was a beauty princess and sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo darn cute. Luis is was more than 100% hunky looking, he was a MILLION PERCENT HUNKY and Sheridan was just a beautiful women with a big heart and I didnt like it when she was mean but I know it was just acting. I hope and pray to find some of these actors and actresses on other soaps like AMC, OLTL, GH and Days Of Our Lives. Im very very sad about this. I LOVED PASSIONS because it was a mystery soap with lots of action. Good Luck and Best Wishes to all of you except for GWEN and ETHAN…I HATE YOU TWO very much and I wish you hell in life especially you GWEN, YOU and your UGLY MOTHER SUSAN LUCCI are the 2 WORSE UGLY ******* on EARTH and BTW how is your UGLY SATAN BABY DOING?????

    i think them cancelling passions was truely stupid idea!!!! I have always had cable, and even with cable i sat and watched passions.. I ‘ve been watching that show for ages… apeople who can’t afford cable, sat and watched that show.. and what do u know they fell in love with it.. so to take something away like that was really dumb of them to do… now i watch movies or try to catch it online if i can’t have the luxury of watching it on television:( that’s shamefull:) that show was excellent and i’m sure half of the U.S. felt upset because you all cancelled a great show… nbc should’ve been cancelled permantelty of you gone do something like that…
