TVB’s long-running sitcom Come Home Love <愛·回家> is finally coming to an end. The Ma family will say their last goodbye on April 1, 2016.
The popular sitcom about Hong Kong’s favorite family premiered four years ago on May 14, 2012, with Lau Dan (劉丹), Tsui Wing (徐榮), Lai Lok-yi (黎諾懿), Yvonne Lam (林漪娸), Florence Kwok (郭少芸), and Carlo Ng (吳家樂) leading the cast. After airing its 804th episode on July 3, 2015, Come Home Love continued with a sequel series, featuring new main cast members. However, the sequel was met with mixed reviews followed by a ratings dip, prompting the producers to bring back the original cast to round up the final episodes of the series.
On Sunday, Tsui Wing shared a picture of the sitcom’s final script on his official Weibo. He wrote, “It’s hard to describe what I feel while holding this script.” Lai Lok-yi reblogged the post and said, “[We’ve] now entered the final stages. Work hard and happy new year of the monkey. Good start, good end. Let’s have the perfect ending.”
Come Home Love will air its last episode, the 995th episode “Tonight, Come Home, Loving Memories” <今夜·回家·愛在念掛> on April 1, 2016, just short of its fourth anniversary.
Succeeding Come Home Love’s time slot will be another new sitcom featuring Some Day <天天天晴> actors Teresa Mo (毛舜筠) and Wayne Lai (黎耀祥). The comedy series, which revolves around a television production company, stars Wayne as a television producer and Teresa as his multi-talented assistant. Chung King-fai (鍾景輝) will star as Wayne’s father and Power Chan (陳國邦) will star as Teresa’s young uncle. The new series is produced by Law Chun-ngok (羅鎮岳) with a script by Sandy Shaw (邵麗瓊).
About the new sitcom, which is still untitled, Wayne said the series is set in a trendy media atmosphere, and will include many pop culture references, especially from entertainment gossip.
