Spring has arrived and that means it’s finale season. ABC just announced their season finale schedule for April, which includes the season three finale of Speechless and the season five finale of Fresh Off the Boat.
Next month will also see the season two finale of Splitting Up Together (April 9th at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT) and the season one finale of The Rookie (April 16th at 10 p.m. ET/PT).
It’s unclear if any of these season finales will also be series finales for the ABC TV shows. All four, especially Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat, have slipped in the ratings over the course of the 2018-19 season. ABC has yet to announce any renewals or cancellations, so time will tell.
