“Our crew has grown to be a true family, and their hard work and dedication has been fundamental to our success year after year,” Gemmill said. “My deepest gratitude to the cast members, who have brought our characters to life with their impassioned performances — thank you for your talent, professionalism, and continuous enthusiasm. And to our loyal viewers who loved our characters and followed their journeys, thank you.
