As for Brown, he’s trying to look at the brighter side of the show ending, like the TV family he’s built over the years.
“I think there’s gonna be a lot of emotions that we’re all having as we move towards this sixth and final season, as we come towards the end. It’s been such a wondrous journey,” he said. “I mean, truly, when you get a chance to work with people who you care about, as individuals, not just as artists, but you know that they’re going to be a part of your life forever, you’re gonna miss the story, but they’re still going to be a part of your life.”
Brown is just so proud of all the things the show has been able to do for people, and how it’s covered mental health, race, addiction, gender and sexual identity and so much more in a way that really resonated with people. (He also has been nominated for multiple Emmys for his performance, which doesn’t hurt.)
“There’s so many things that we’ve touched on, and have tried to, in a very conscious way, create a landscape where everyone can see themselves and recognize that they belong in the tapestry of storytelling,” he said. “I’m excited to bring it to an end, because I know we’ve been building towards something this whole time.”
