Popular TVB sitcom Come Home Love <愛·回家> is finally coming to an end. Producer Tsui Yu On‘s (徐遇安) series aired its 700th episode on February 6, becoming TVB’s third longest-running sitcom in history.

Premiering in May 2012 to an average of 1.6 million viewers on its first week of broadcast, Come Home Love was initially planned for 180 episodes. The series was extended four more times in the last two years due to its popularity and ratings success.

Come Home Love stars Lau Dan (劉丹), Tsui Wing (徐榮), Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿), Yvonne Lam (林漪娸), Florence Kwok (郭少芸), Angel Chiang (蔣家旻), and Joey Law (羅天宇) as the members of the Ma family, a middle class family living in Hong Kong. Filming together every day for the past three years, the Come Home Love stars have grown close, expressing that they have truly become like a real family.

The screenwriters of Come Home Love announced today that they are currently writing for the last few episodes for Come Home Love. They posted a picture of the scripts for episodes 733 to 735 on Weibo, and said, “We have been with each other for 700 nights, and Come Home Love will soon enter its third year of broadcast. There were times of happiness and sadness. The scriptwriting team is already preparing for the final episode, and we have entered our countdown. The more we write, the more we miss it. We are thankful and cherish this. We will put our heart out there to give the audience one of the most perfect endings, so everyone we love can come home.”

    Based on their apartment size and their lifestyle they are definitely not just ‘middle’ class lol. But I do enjoy this show though. It’s very light hearted and fun to watch during free time. Will miss this when it ends :/

    Please end it! It started out good, especially the funny situations arising from misunderstandings by the Ma family. And Lai Lok Yi was really into character. But 100 episodes later, he just got irritating. Same for the Cha Lee See bunch. Having a law firm didn’t make it any better.

    I really like Lai lok yi. One of the things I wish they did for this long series was develops the characters life a bit more like voh. Have them get married have kids and all that jazz. I hates the draggy love stories. On and off- on and off.

        Yes, I wish they had done that for Richard & Ha-Jie, let them grow, encounter difficulties the way real life people. That would be more awesome.

        The other old pairs were good too: Alex & jOhn, Amanda with either damon or ah biao

    This drama series is one of the best, though it may be 700 episodes now, I am still not tired with this sitcom. The ratings speak for itself, for this type of sitcom where the ratings average about 25, it is considered good already. Anyway all good things must come to an end.I hope the best for all the actors and actresses in their future dramas with TVB.

    Overall, really love this drama. Refreshing and gives you something quick to watch without having to follow every single episode.

    It has gone downhill since the addition of the new characters and the new firms though, the storylines are mehhh too

    – John Ma seems to be really irritating and ‘小氣’ lately
    – Angel Ma needs to mature and stop being such a drama queen for her age
    -Miss the old firm and the old characters 🙁

    I’ve watched all 700+ episodes of this sitcom and I’ll have to agree with majority of the commenters, since the new character additions to the show it’s not been that fun to watch like the older episodes. They sometimes drag a storyline on for longer than needs to be e.g. the mystery boss.
    All in all though, I do like the drama and will be sad to see it end. But with these sitcoms a lot of the actors/actress’ will probably be in the new one too, so I’m looking forward to seeing what TVB has to offer next! 😀

    Since the series has been descending into the crapper for about 100 episodes now they should just cop out at the end:
    1. John Ma marries Ching Ching
    2. Leung marries Lai Goo
    3. Richard and Ha jeh hook it up officially
    4. Tam Bing Man hooks up with Manager Wan

    One of my favourite character in the show is Maggie Jie – Damon’s ex-secretary. She is smart, helpful and a humble wife though her husband is rich. Just wonder if anyone else likes her/this character too..?

        Maggie is ok, not terrifically, but also not irritating, like some eg the new characters, zini, lai gu (after liang fen).
        She is like staple food, good to have, should have.

    Popular sitcom? Really? I found it so lame and the storyline cringing. Acting in general wasn’t great either. I found it bizarre how they kept prolonging it. In my opinion it fails so greatly in comparison with virtues of harmony and best selling secrets.

    I stopped watching after 200 episodes or so. At first it was something to kill time with, not the best show but not too shabby either. Until one day Angel Ma irritates the heck out of me with her princess attitude and all the men cater to all her needs and whines … at that point i would rather bang my head on the wall than to be irritated to Angel Ma 🙂 … although i have to say my favorite character is Damian … he’s a hoot

    • kangaroo replied:

      Yes, she irritates me too with her whining. She has a high pitch voice & my ears are not suitable to hearing such high pitch. However, on the internet, there seem to be a number of people asking for her return. I wondered what I have missed out on!!!

    I’ve been watching this drama from the beginning to end. I’m at the 700th ep and I’m like like, this is the end? There are still so many things that are unsolved. I’m so glad to see it’s going to end at the 800th episode (Looked up in wiki) or as long as there more eps than what they planned (700) haha 😀

      What do they talk about for so many eps? My mom and I were going to see this but got scared away by the number of eps.

        Try watch the first 200…its short and the begining was really funny…everyday life experiences, that when seen as a 3rd party are very very funny.

        My mom thought it was stupid because of the number of episodes…but when she started to watch Ma Fu….she says its the funniest thing ever….especially the one episode when he thought he was losing his mind because his wallet suddenly missed money, and then the following day, it had triple the amount! It was a case that the Ma family was just trying to help out when the grandson borrowed money without asking and then put the money back without telling each other.

    The 1st 500 (the original) were mostly good though like everything, they had hits & misses. Apart from a number of memorable ones, what I like are the Richard & Ha-Jie bits. Wished they anchor Richard & Ha-Jie officially before 500. Now, with the new shows, everything went haywire and it seems that they are even breaking up Richard & Ha-Jie, the last of the original couples. Sad.
