Series Finale Saturday, July 21 at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS
In the series finale, “There She Goes,” mid-life Alex contemplates getting back together with his ex-wife, Sarah (Allison Tolman), when she visits for Abby’s birthday party. Also, Young Alex attempts to move on from his crush on Nori by inviting his lab partner, Julia (Cree Cicchino), to the dance, and Older Alex makes one last-ditch effort to keep Eleanor from leaving Los Angeles with her fiancé.
The series has stared Bobby Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods – as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in present day and at age 65 in 2042. As a 14-year-old boy living in Chicago in 1991, Alex was on top of the world, inventing cool things and celebrating the Bulls’ first championship, until his mom, Maggie, moved them to Los Angeles, the heart of Lakers country, and married a pilot, Ron.
In 2042 at 65, Alex is a highly successful businessman who, after suffering a minor heart attack, decides he’s ready to reinvent himself once again. Alex announces he’s retiring to his adult daughter, Abby, now the general manager of the Chicago Bulls, and he gets a surprise chance to reconnect with his childhood crush, Nori, who now goes by Eleanor. During these three pivotal periods, Alex always manages to find a way to move forward, handling key moments with determination, emotion and humor.
