What is Girlfriends about?

Girlfriends premiered on UPN on September 11, 2000.

The show followed the lives of four friends, Joan, Maya, Lynn, and Toni as they navigate their way through their twenties.

Girlfriends aired on UPN for six seasons, before moving to The CW for seasons seven and eight.

Sadly, Girlfriends was cancelled in 2008 after an eight-season run, and being the longest-running live-action sitcom on network television at the time.

The CW decided not to produce any more episodes due to the show being too expensive to film.

A spokesperson for The CW told the US outlet: “This was a very difficult decision for us, and was based solely on the considerable cost to license each episode in an extremely unusual business environment.”

Girlfriends creator, Mara Brock Akil told TV series finale despite the show not having a planned final episode, the series still told the stories she wanted to share.

She said: “Although it’s always difficult to say goodbye, I choose to focus my energy on the history that Girlfriends has made, the human stories that we told, the beautifully complex images that we projected and the blessings 172 episodes bestowed on us, both personally and professionally.

“I am immensely thankful to the amazingly talented cast, writers, directors, staff and crew for their endless dedication and hard work for eight seasons, to the network that always wanted us and the studio that always supported us, but mostly to the audience, especially African-American women, who took the time to tune into us every Monday night at nine to have a dialogue with us and who have been our partner in this journey.”
