ABC Family, or Freeform as they are now calling themselves, announced a few days back that this season of Switched at Birth, Season 5, will be the last. The blunt / tough / biz way to put this is, of course, is, SHOW CANCELLED. But really, it’s sort of a beautiful end of an era. The show is coming to an end, yes, but not before it reached 103 episodes, which is a rare accomplishment for a show, especially one featuring deaf and hard of hearing characters. I MEAN. I moved on from Switched months ago, but the more time that passes, the more I realize how unbelievably special the whole experience was. I don’t think I will ever work with better people, or in a more loving environment. I just might spend the rest of my career chasing or trying to recreate it. Maybe I will even try and recreate myself with my own show. Lizzy says it feels like college graduation, ¬†and I couldn’t agree more. The whole thing did feel like college. There was learning. There were snacks. There are now lifelong friends. There was a regular walk up and down a moderately sloped hill. There was pride. There was comradery. And I very much already can’t wait for the reunion.
