NEWS RELEASE May 12, 2018 The Good Show on HBO is celebrating the 100th episode with an all-star cast.
The episode titled “The Big Goodbye” features a reunion of the show’s cast, including David Andrew as Frank Costello, Alanna Masterson as Candice, Nick Offerman as Richard, Elizabeth Banks as Candace, Jodie Sweetin as Maggie, and John Stamos as Donald.
It’s been a year since the show last aired.
“I was a big fan of it, so it was a pleasure to be back,” said David Andrew, who also plays Donald Glover.
“It’s nice to have everyone back.
It was so wonderful to have a great cast again.”
Andrew will reprise his role as Richard.
He said the reunion was great for everyone.
“We’re all very excited to be together again,” he said.
“The chemistry between us and the cast was so amazing.
It’s such a great group of people and it was such a pleasure.”
The series is also getting back to the roots of the old days.
“There’s something about a house where they still hang out and hang out,” said Offerman, who plays Richard.
“People come from all over the world and they don’t want to be on the same boat as them anymore.
So they’re kind of like the hippies, right?”
Andrew said the idea for the reunion came to him after the finale.
“At the end of the season, I was talking to a friend and he said, ‘Well, why don’t we do this show?’
And I said, I don’t know, I just want to do this and then we’ll see what happens.
So we did that and it’s just been a wonderful time.”
He said he is very excited about the show going back to his hometown.
“My kids are both grown now and I love Oakland,” he joked.
“But there’s so much going on in Oakland right now.
They’re getting new schools, new parks and new developments.
So it’s a perfect time to come back and play this old Oakland.”
The show’s producers, along with a host of celebrities and industry professionals, were at the premiere for the episode and were very touched by the reaction from the fans.
“Fans were so happy and they loved the show,” said series executive producer/creator Alex Gansa.
“This is the best way to celebrate and remember what a great show it was.
The cast is a wonderful team.
They’ve been together so long, and it means a lot to them.
We all want to thank them for their passion and their energy.”
The episode airs on May 13 at 8 p.m.
