“There’s so much expectation, and how do you live up to that?” he continued.
The showrunner went on to say that he worked on “a character-by-character basis” while putting the finale together and wanted to make sure the characters were in “a very good place in their lives.”
“Hopefully the fans will be happy with it,” Gemmill concluded. “I think the last scene is really fun and hopeful.”
