The next episode of Faking It will be its last, showrunner Carter Covington revealed Friday.
Ahead of the MTV comedy’s season 3 finale on Tuesday, Covington tweeted the news that the episode would also serve as the show’s series finale.
“Sad news this morning. For all the #FakingIt fans out there, we’re so grateful you loved this show as much as we did,” Covington said in his post. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
Faking It follows a pair of high school girls who decide to pretend to be a lesbian couple to gain popularity. The series had gained footing for its diverse LGBT portrayals, including having the first intersex main character on television. Covington posted that he plans to let the fans know what he had planned for the future of the show after the finale airs.
“I just want to express our deep, deep gratitude from everyone that makes Faking It,” Covington tells EW. “We all have just had the best time creating this story and putting it out there and hoping it would affect people, and seeing how invested fans have been is what has kept us going. And we’re sad that it’s over, but we’re incredibly grateful that we got to make it and grateful that fans supported it. And we hope that they’ll share it with their friends and that it will live on.”
Following the announcement, the cast of the show shared their feelings via Twitter. You can read their reactions below.
