To all fans of the small screen, many of our favourite television series, that we have come to love are all airing their series finales this week.

From beloved comedies to intense dramas, here’s a breakdown of the upcoming series finales and why you should check them out.

This Wednesday (May 24) was the series finale of The Flash on CW and also serves as the conclusion for the extended Arrowverse. This last season wraps up the events following Eobard Thawne’s defeat and all the storylines on Team Flash.

On Friday, (May 26), fans of period comedy-drama The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will have to say goodbye to their favorite Emmy-winning juggernaut as the show airs its series finale on Prime Video. After five seasons of stylish outfits and raucous comedy, viewers will bid farewell to the world without Midge.

The series tells the story of Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a young, affluent Jewish-American housewife in the 1950s, who chooses to embark on a stand-up comedy career after getting divorced by her husband Joel.

The final season takes place from the 1960s – 1990s. In the early 60s, Midge, still struggling professionally, is hired as a writer for ‘The Gordon Ford Show’ and competes against male co-workers. Unlike previous seasons, this season shows glimpses of the characters’ futures.

On Sunday (May 28), critically acclaimed HBO series Succession will bid farewell to its dedicated audience at 9pm.

Succession follows the Roy family, owners of media conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. The four children of the family patriarch, begin to prepare for a future without their father and vie for prominence within the company.

The drama series, known for its enthralling power struggles within a wealthy family, has garnered an immense following and sky-high expectations for its conclusion. As the stakes reach their peak, fans are eager to see if the finale lives up to the show’s brilliant reputation.

At 10:30 pm, also on HBO viewers will say goodbye to Barry, the dark comedy series featuring Bill Hader as a hitman-turned-actor.

Known for its seamless blend of humour and emotional depth, the show has kept audiences on the edge of their seats throughout its run. Fans will surely be rooting for beloved characters like NoHo Hank as they witness the final chapter of their complex journeys.
