'Kim's Convenience' Just Announced That The Show Is Ending After This Season

The store is turning the lights off and locking the door.

It's a sad day for Canadian TV fans because Kim's Convenience is coming to an end.

The show's producers announced the news on Monday afternoon, letting fans know that the show is ending after its fifth season finishes in one month's time.

The show premiered on October 11, 2016, and became one of Canada's most beloved TV shows over its five seasons of airing.

But with the show's two co-creators leaving after the fifth season was ending, they announced they were closing the convenience store and ending the show rather than trying to continue without them.

In a statement, Kim's Convenience's producers thanked their fans for the "love and support" they'd shown the series.

"Kim's Convenience has meant so much to our cast, writers, crew, and audiences around the world," the statement said.

"Despite the restrictions and complications of shooting during the pandemic, Season 5 is our finest season to date. It's been a privilege and a great pleasure to work with the Kim's family of gifted writers and performers for the last five years."

The show's series finale is scheduled to air on April 13, when fans of the show will have to say goodbye to the beloved Umma and Appa and the rest of the cast.

The Kim's Convenience store will still be in Toronto for people to visit, but there's no question that the show's ending leaves a big hole in the hearts of many Canadians.
