Read no further if you haven't seen the series finale The Big C! Spoilers ahead! The video features The Big C executive producer Jenny Bicks as she discusses Cathy's last words in The Big C's finale, which aired last night. The series finale focused on a number of topics, among which was the "last words" subject, which Cathy broached as she pondered what her own final words should be.
Ok, if the preview for the next episode is making me tear up, I'm not sure how I'm going to make it through the actual episode. Not that this is a major complaint, nor am I willing to really complain that the trailer for Part 3 of The Big C's four-part final season gives away too much, though it kind of does. From the looks of it, "Quality of Life" will have Cathy modeling Andrea's Pharoah-inspired gown on the runway.
A week from tonight, Showtime will premiere the limited series event, which will see the conclusion of Cathy Jamison's story with The Big C: Hereafter. The 4-episode final season will close out the story for better or worse, in what is likely to be a tearful wrap-up to this series, which has managed to be both funny and heartbreaking all at once in all the right ways.
Looking ahead at the fourth and final 4-episode season of The Big C, star John Benjamin Hickey describes it as "beautiful, heartbreaking and hilarious." All three words seem like fair adjectives to describe the Showtime drama series, which inspires a mixture of laughter and tears in its focus on a woman fighting terminal cancer. A new video promoting the upcoming final season breaks down the series by stages of grief, and leads into a few glimpses of what's ahead for Cathy.
With Showtime's The Big C wrapping up, that leaves John Benjamin Hickey available for his next big role. The actor, who plays Laura Linney's character's brother Sean in the dramedy, has signed on for a key role in The CW's pilot Blink, a drama that centers on a man in a coma. Hickey will play the comatose man.
We learned last summer that The Big C had been renewed for another season - kind of. The Showtime drama series was picked up for four more episodes, which will close out the series, concluding the story of Cathy, a wife and mother living with a cancer. Since it's a special season, it's getting a special title, and two guest stars!
The good news is, Showtime is bringing The Big C back for a fourth season. The not-so-good news is that Season 4 will be the last season for the Laura Linney-starring series, and from what's being reported, it will be a limited season at that. And by limited, I mean really limited.

I’d be lying if I tried to claim that I was exceptionally good at predicting the Emmys. In truth, none of the awards shows are all that predictable, which is part of what makes them worth tuning in for in the first place. There’s a lot of talent in this year’s rundown of nominees. I’ve made a solid attempt to predict who will win, and I’ve thrown my own choice for who should win from each of the major categories.
