Earlier, Plageman and Nolan said fans can expect an “explosive” series finale.
Speaking to Variety, Nolan said the series’ end won’t be happy:
I don’t think I’ve ever written a happy ending. We’re not keen on happy endings here. Way back in the pilot, Finch promised that ‘this will end messily for all of them’ and I think we fulfilled the mandate.”
However, Plageman added that fans will be happy with the last season:
It’s been a long time our fans have been waiting for this season and I can’t wait for them to watch it. I think they’re going to feel really rewarded.”
Season five begins tonight, May 3rd, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
