bro’Town finally comes to an end with the final episode of the final series. We say good bye to a Kiwi favourite. But is it really a final goodbye?
This week sees stars aplenty when television history is made when the last ever episode of the Award-winning local animated series bro’Town screens on Sunday, May 24th at 8pm on TV3.
bro’Town has already seen an impressive line-up of guest stars this year, with Hollywood actors Sam Neill, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), and legendary musicians Neil Finn and Tim Finn all lending their famous voices to the show.
And much like American personalities know they’ve made it when they get a guest appearance on the animated hit The Simpsons, New Zealanders know they’ve touched the heart of the nation when they appear on the local smash-hit comedy bro’Town.
And this week’s finale certainly stays true to this formula; guest staring Robert Rakete, Lucy Lawless, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Sir Howard Morrison and Scribe, this week’s episode will be ending the series on a definite high.
The episode titled “So You Think You Can Dance Near The Stars?” will see Dad slipped an ecstasy tablet and convincing Agnes to show the world her fancy footwork in a televised dance competition.
“I think we’re ending the series with a really strong episode,” says bro’Town creator/developer, director and producer Elizabeth Mitchell.
“Lots of storylines are tied up, the issues we explore are pretty full-on, we’ve got an awesome line up of celebrity guests and it’s really funny! We wanted to go out on a high and I think we definitely achieve that!”
And even though the series is coming to an end, fans need not wary as Mitchell promises the Morningside boys will be back in one way or another.
“We are leaving it open so that we can come back to it sometime in the future if that feels like the right thing to do,” Mitchell explains.
“We’re also working on the bro’Town movie and hoping to do some TV specials… so bro’Town won’t be going away – it will just be trying out some different vehicles.”
But until that time make sure not to miss the last ever episode of one of the most celebrated New Zealand television shows when bro’Town finals its series on Sunday, May 24th at 8pm on TV3.
