As you probably already know, ABC has cancelled Last Resort. Though they plan to air the 13 episodes that they initially ordered, there won’t be any more after that.
Thankfully, Co-creators Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek and the other writers got the word in time to give closure in the final episode. As Ryan recently tweeted, “We are giving series definitive end.”
As we head into the holidays, Last Resort’s cast and crew are wrapping up filming the last episode. Here are some of their thoughts on saying goodbye:
Karl Gajdusek (co-creator): “Shooting the last episode. #lastresort” and included the photo above.
Two days later, he wrote, “I would tweet pics from the set today, but it would give the whole thing away. So sadly, ambiguous tweets only. #LastResort”
Jessy Schram (Christine Kendal): “My last day playing this lady. I’ll miss her. #lastresort_abc” She included the photo at right and Robert Patrick retweeted it.
Autumn Reeser (Kylie Sinclair): “Just wrapped two 15-hour days in a row shooting the intense finale for #LastResort and tomorrow is my last day on set… :(” And yesterday, she tweeted, “Goodbye, Hawaii!! xoxo”
Daisy Betts (Lieutenant Grace Shepard): “About to shoot the final minutes of #LastResort finale. What an epic journey it has been. Feeling every moment all over again :)”
Tyler Tuione (Chief): Responding to a fan, he wrote, “Thank u! You’ll see me again. However, as it is now, just not as #Chief 🙁 Enjoyed every second.”
Daniel Lissing (James King) : Confirmed that he was done and wrote, “Thanks @ABC_Publicity @LastResort_ABC @ShawnRyanTV @KarlGajdusek @LastResortOnABC I loved being James King!”
What do you think? What are you hoping will happen in the last episode?
I can ‘t believe this show was cancelled. It was one of the few shows I watched on ABC.
