Showtime’s “The Big C” goes to the great beyond with “Hereafter”

The Big C Hereafter Ryan Berenz

The Showtime comedy “The Big C” starring Laura Linney ends its four-season run with four one-hour “Hereafter” episodes that begin April 29.

Well, with a title like The Big C: Hereafter, we can be pretty sure that Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) is going to meet her end, right? Not so fast, say the stars and producers of the Showtime comedy, which is ending its four-season run with four one-hour episodes that begin April 29 at 10pm ET/PT. They’re all being cagey about Cathy’s fate as she deals with her cancer, but they have promised a satisfying ending to the story. Executive producer Jenny Bicks even gave some broad strokes about the series’ final scene. “[It] will be very nostalgic … because we reintroduce ideas [and] visual elements that we’ve played with throughout the course of the series. So I think it’s a visually stunning moment, and a very happy moment, too.”
