What’s in store for the Imposters series finale? Recently, creators Paul Adelstein and Adam Brooks spoke with TVLine about the end of the Bravo TV show.
As reported earlier, Bravo has cancelled the dark comedy after only two seasons. The cast includes Inbar Lavi, Rob Heaps, Parker Young, Marianne Rendón, Stephen Bishop, and Brian Benben, and Uma Thurman.
The series finale of Imposters airs on Bravo tonight, June 7th, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Co-creator Paul Adelstein said they didn’t intend the season two finale as a series finale, but there are certain story lines that are resolved:
We had a theme for the season of consequences and what’s next. Because it’s a con show, just like Season 1, everything would build throughout the season [and] hopefully culminate in the finale. I think we did that well here. There’s a very clear through-line, emotionally, for all the characters, and then there are some big questions for them. … We didn’t intend it, obviously, as a series finale, but there are aspects of it that leave us in a place where certain aspects of the story have been resolved. There’s certainly enough out there for the audience’s imagination to wonder what’s going to happen next.”
But will there be closure for fans? Co-creator Adam Brooks says they hope they get the chance to do more episodes in the future to close up all the loose ends:
Like Paul said, it’s not [like] we were imagining this being the [series] finale. But when we looked at it that way, we [were] really happy that it doesn’t end on a certain kind of cliffhanger. That would be very frustrating for the audience. What happens in this finale with the Doctor, it does feel like the end of a certain part of our story. There is a certain kind of closure in all of that. And what’s left open, I think, can leave a lot to your imagination. I just saw the final [episode of The] Americans, where they don’t close every loophole, dot every I, cross the T’s. So I think it was an accident, but it worked out well that way. We hope that makes people want more. We hope that maybe one day, who knows, we’ll get to do more. It works better than we might have thought, given that we weren’t planning for it.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Imposters? Do you think it deserved a third season?
