Megan Park & Daren Kagasoff look back on 109 episodes & give HollywoodLife.com the scoop on what’s still to come!
The final 12 episodes of ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager begin March 18, and if you think you’re surprised that the long-running drama is actually coming to an end, just imagine how the cast feels! “It’s going to be really sad to watch the last episode, because that’s it,” Megan Park tells HollywoodLife.com of the series finale, which airs June 3.
“I remember first meeting [Shailene Woodley] at the wardrobe fitting before we filmed the pilot,” she recalls. “She was 15 then, and she was with her mom, and I was with my mom. It’s so crazy!”
“I can’t wait to see the last episode,” adds Daren Kagasoff. “It’s the last time we were all together as a cast, so it’s close to my heart.”
Will Ricky & Amy Get Married?
One of the biggest events of the final 12 episodes — assuming it actually happens — is the highly anticipated wedding of Amy and Ricky. But you’ll have to wait until the big day comes, because Daren isn’t giving up anything.
“There are definitely some obstacles, and I can’t even say if we do get married or if we don’t,” he says. Let’s just say she gets a wedding dress, and it wasn’t one that I necessarily would have picked out.”
How Will It All End? Who Will End Up With Who?
Not only did Megan not “envision” Grace’s story ending the way it does, but she actually sounds a little disappointed.
“I didn’t want this ending,” Megan admits. “But it makes sense. I can see why they decided to do this with my character. It’s definitely, definitely not the ending I was expecting.”
Sadly, she can’t say whether or not Grace’s ending involves a happily-ever-after with Jack (Greg Finley), but she promises fans are in for more than one shocker.
“I was really surprised to see who everyone ends up with, and where they end up, and what they’re doing,” she hints. “It’s real, but it’s not what everybody’s going to want.”
While Daren agrees the series doesn’t end the way he predicted, he think the characters are exactly where they belong.
“The ending is unbelievable,” he says. “I think it all ended correctly. When we were informed we weren’t coming back, [creator Brenda Hampton] had to scramble to come up with an ending, and I think the way she did it was phenomenal.”
