So for a long time, the idea has been, should we be so lucky to have the opportunity, we would do four seasons of this. So certainly going into breaking story for season 4, we knew it was the end,”.

I think it’s very special and it’s also supersized finale, so even if people aren’t super happy with the ending, at least they can’t say we were stingy”
