Mayim Bialik is a woman of many hats. She’s responsible for co-hosting Jeopardy! alongside Ken Jennings. She did, however, serve for nine years as neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory prior to this position. She is also seen through Call Me Kat. Fans are devastated when Bialik says goodbye to the show as this latter effort is coming to an end.
Another sitcom, presented by Fox this time, called Call Me Kat is based on Miranda Hart’s British show Miranda. Leslie Jordan, who passed away in 2022, Swoosie Kurtz, Kyla Pratt, Christopher Rivas, and Cheyenne Jackson were also present with Bialik as the titular Kat. The third season of the program will be its last. Here’s how Bialik is kicking off this final chapter for the program, for herself, and for the audience.
Bialik posted a picture of herself and her Call Me Kat coworkers earlier this week on Instagram. She captioned the picture, “It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.”
“During COVID, we succeeded in making a lot of people laugh in ways that at first appeared improbable. However, thanks to this amazing cast, which includes Cheyenne, Swoosie, Julian, and Kyla, as well as the late Leslie Jordan, everything that previously seemed impossible has now become possible.”
She continued, “Decide the ending you want, but for me, here’s where I think we all end up: Kat and Max live happily ever after, Randi and Carter get married and do the same, and Sheila is forever in everyone’s life bringing joy and wisdom. Phil continues to exist forever. We appreciate you joining us on this adventure.”
Fans are not yet prepared to bid Kat or Bialik farewell.
After three years of chronicling Kat’s story as someone “who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that you cannot have everything you want – and still be happy,” the news of the show’s discontinuation was announced just this month.
The show has gotten a variety of reviews since its debut, with Metacritic giving season one a 41 out of 100. It was, nonetheless, nominated for Outstanding Cinematography For A Multi-Camera Series at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards. It received a nomination for Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series the next year.
Variety claims that the network was well aware of this response and that it had a substantial impact on their decision to cancel. In a statement, the network added, “We are incredibly proud of Call Me Kat. But regrettably, it did not receive the enthusiastic response we had thought it would. We appreciate our collaboration with BBC Studios, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, Warner Bros. Television, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons, and the whole cast and crew of Call Me Kat.”
Despite its controversial past, the program has devoted viewers who are not yet prepared to say goodbye. One user begged, “I am so heartbroken!! I adored this show! Could it be picked up by a different network? I’m not prepared.”
An other person commended the episode, saying, “This show is so amazing, thank you for all the laughs and a lead character I could relate to.”
