Sela Ward was pregnant in real-life during the fourth season. Producers chose to hide her pregnancy, rather than write it into the storyline. Ward never had to take time off from the show, as she subsequently gave birth shortly after the filming of season four was completed. See more »
Sisters is a wonderful show that has a lot of character. I remember watching the show when it was first aired, but didn't remember most of the things about the show until I watched it again on Soapnet. Patricia Kalember (Georgie) was wonderful and really played the part well, even when in the last season she was pregnant. They hid the pregnancy well, but if you are a critic like I am, you could tell that she was with child. Sela Ward (Teddy)was also wonderful and comical, especially when she shot up her sister's wedding. Swoozie Kurtz (Alex) is really comical, yet sophisticated in this series. Julianne Phillips (Frankie) is good, but not as heartfelt as the others. Sheila Kelley (Charlie #2) is very warm and compassionate for her character, and really makes the profession of a doctor stand out. I will always like this series because of the bond between sisters, and for it's warmth on television.
