The show is awesome. I always show the first minute of this episode to people to give me them the flavor of the show.

It's a genuinely fun watch.

I was stunned on the cancelation. I thought it could end with the Marvel gig eating up time or if Paul scores a lead in the new SW show, but the reason is odd. Wonder what happened to make the creators just go "we are done" without even really doing a series finale

Usually, low ratings.

I really like this show. I do think five. Seasons is a decent enough lifespan for a sitcom before it gets stale. Go out on a high note.

For a similar fix, try the show Gentefied (spelled like that) also on Netflix. It's about a Mexican-American family transitioning from a brick and mortar restaurant to a food truck despite the intransigence of the patriarch. It has the same sort of comedy and heart as Kim's Convenience.

I never seem to find out about shows like this until they're over. There needs to be a better way of getting the word out about them.

Today, I learned that there is an actual Kim's Convenience in the Moss Park area of Toronto. I vaguely recall watching a bit of this show, but don't remember much about it. Might have to revisit.

I'm ok with it ending with one more season. It has fallen fully into relationship drama, which isn't as entertaining as the chemistry other characters have. Janet and Appa are great when they have scenes together, but it's becoming less frequent.

It's also become more cringey over time.

Still a good show though

Sad, but at least we'll always have the Appa/cookie episode.

If I want to watch a Canadian show based around a convenience store I'll stick to the classics.

Aww and i just discovered it too..

Something went wrong in the writer's room. Meddling came from somewhere to change the direction of the show. It went from a charming depiction of an Korean family to "there's a spider loose in the store, zany huh??" a few weeks ago. The creators decided enough was enough. It is too bad.
