Talked to Empire Magazine, Ruck – who plays the series’ oldest son Connor Roy – said he was glad the series didn’t overstay its welcome, and that everyone involved with the series knew things were over. since last year. According to Ruck, it’s better to end the series on their terms rather than take things to an unnecessary level.
“The truth is, we’ve all known about the show since June,” Ruck said. “And I think it’s the right time to end it in terms of the struggle to see who will rule this empire. The fifth season could have been, and if it just goes away, that would be a shame.”
