Announcing the conclusion of the TV series, Nollywood actor Charles Inojie took to his Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes photographs and videos from the film set, taking fans on an emotional journey through memory lane and expressing his heartfelt gratitude to viewers over the 13-year journey.

“Thank You, Africa. After 13 years of absolute magic,13 years of awesomeness, 13 years of being Africa’s most-watched show on television, 13 years of being every family’s favourite, The Johnsons is finally taking a bow,” he wrote.

He also lauded the team members and viewers for their support.



    “I thank my co-travellers, the wonderful team of cast and crew, without whom these past 13 years could not have been spectacularly outstanding as The Johnsons made it. I am immensely grateful to our fans across the African continent for the love and support we got unconditionally.

    “Indeed, while it is the beginning of greater exploits from every individual member of the team, like every good thing that must have a terminal point, it is the end of the road for The Johnsons. Thank You”, he added.
