Never intended to be a finale
25 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last episode of the 20th season was never meant to be the concluding episode. In fact, James Arness said "We didn't do a final, wrap-up show. We finished the 20th year, we all expected to go on for another season" the network "never told anybody they were thinking of canceling" According to the Wall Street Journal "Many of the cast and crew members of the show found out about the cancellation from trade publications." It is sad for television history that Festus was the only primary character featured when three original characters of the show had no significant screen time. Most episodes were written to be self-contained to allow for syndication. On the other hand, the lack of resolve in the ending allowed for the later successful TV movies based on the series and original cast.
