The comedy, which stars Gardell and Melissa McCarthy, was cancelled by CBS in December.
In the interview, Gardell said fans will be satisfied with the series’ last episode:
The Mike & Molly fans, who’ve been incredibly loyal, will be very, very pleased with the finale. There’s beautiful closure. We were blessed in so many ways to have such a beautiful team through the whole thing — cast, crew and writing.”
He added that there were definitely “a lot of watery eyes” during the last week of shooting.
The series finale of Mike & Molly airs on May 16th.
