Fans tuned in to the Chesapeake Shores series finale on Sunday for one last evening with the O’Brien family. In the final episode of Season 6, “All Or Nothing,” Chessies met Kevin and Sara’s new baby, saw Evan propose to Abby, and watched Megan and Mick say “I do” all over again.
“Just watched the finale,” wrote one fan on Facebook. “Sad to see it sign off, but an awesome closing show to a wonderful, enjoyable series. Great writing, great acting, and great crew. Thank you for all the evenings of lovely entertainment you have given us!”
“Absolutely BEAUTIFUL ending to a stunning series!” wrote another fan. “I sobbed my heart out.”
Chesapeake Shores series finale
The series finale was jam-packed with both action and emotion. After struggling with fertility issues and a miscarriage, Kevin and Sara had a healthy baby boy and named him Mick.
Mick Sr. then turned over the family business to Abby with the parting advice not to let it take over her life. Evan asked Abby to marry him. Luke broke Bree’s heart, before showing up at Mick and Megan’s wedding, giving audiences hope that they might make it after all.
Mick and Megan’s wedding went off without a hitch. The couple seemed to have resolved their issues and were planning to travel the world after their big day.
A fond farewell
Cast members have been sharing emotional posts on Instagram.
“I’ve been going through my photo album from this final season and want to share some special moments and memories,” wrote Barbara Niven in an Instagram post. “You #Chessies have become so dear to us, thanks for making it possible. Thanks also to all the people behind the scenes who made this show possible, including @hallmarkchannel, @dpaulsonprods, the producers, writers, cast and crew. I will never forget you.”
Treat Williams weighed in with his own post.
“Thank you @hallmarkchannel and @dpaulsonprods for Six great years playing Mick Obrien. I will miss this cast,” he wrote.
Chesapeake Shores premiered on Hallmark Channel in 2016. Based on the best-selling books by author Sherryl Woods, the show followed a single mother (Meghan Ory), who returns to her small coastal hometown following a divorce. She is immediately thrown back into the drama of her large family.
In addition to Meghan Ory, Barbara Niven, and Treat Williams, the series also starred Diane Ladd, Brendan Penny, Emilie Ullerup, Laci Mailey, Jessica Sipos, and Andrew Francis. Actor Jesse Metcalfe appeared on the series for the first four seasons playing Trace Riley, the on-again, off-again love interest of Abby O’Brien. He dropped out of the series shortly before filming began on Season 5.
