The four seasons made everyone laugh. The wait for the fifth season has now gripped the mind of its audience. In this article, we tell you about the plot, characters, and tentative release date of the fifth season.
A Peek Into The Storyline
A series that revolves around a family is often looked at with suspicion. The chances for such a series to pull off the comedy with perfect timing are rare but not if that has been created by Justin Adler.
The four seasons of the comedy series ran from 2015 to 2019. It revolved around the Short family and its three generations: Grandparents, Parents, and Grandchildren. Every member of the family remained busy with their lives and there was no scope to get them in one house together.
Hence, John Doe Short one day decides to invite all of them by asking his wife to announce his funeral. With an understanding that their father has died, all the children visit the venue only to find out that he is still alive. The series then progresses and takes the audiences into the lives of the Short family which is filled with hilarious incidents.
The four seasons of the series were filled with a huge list of the star cast. The list includes main characters as well as side characters. The main characters who kick-start the series by faking a funeral event are John Doe Short and Dr. Joan Pirle Short played by James Brolin and Dianne West respectively.
John is a retired airline pilot. During his old age, which he believes to be the last days of his life, he intends to be with his other two generations. He ‘invites’ everyone in a non-funny way but everyone decides to go along as they realize that they have not been in touch lately.
Dr. Joan, his wife, supports him in all his endeavors and is the first one to team up with him in his prank.
It is difficult to get the comic timing when you are playing an old character. Both of them, however, got it right and carried the series along with other actors on their shoulders.
When Can We Expect The Release
The series ran for four seasons from 2015 to 2019 and gave us a lot of memories. To everyone’s shock, CBS announced that it had canceled the series due to its low ratings. Fans found it hard to believe but the pill had to be swallowed when Justin Adler, creator of the series, did not comment on his side to deny the statement.
The fifth season, therefore, carries a mystery related to its release date. The series currently stands canceled and CBS has cited its poor ratings as the reason to not bring it back to television.
