Canadian sitcom “Kim’s Convenience”, the tale of a quirky Korean family that owned a neighborhood convenience store, will be closing shop on Netflix after the upcoming fifth season. Previously, the streamer had announced a two season renewal, taking it through six seasons. Co-creatorsIns Choi and Kevin White decided to move on to other projects at the conclusion of production on season five.
“To our amazing fans: Authenticity of storytelling is at the center of the success of ‘Kim’s Convenience’,” the producers said in a statement. “At the end of production on Season five, our two co-creators confirmed they were moving onto other projects. Given their departure from the series, we have come to the difficult conclusion that we cannot deliver another season of the same heart and quality that has made the show so special.”
A total of 65 episodes of “Kim’s Convenience” was produced. The now series finale airs on CBC in Canada on April 13.
