Smash fans were extremely upset to learn that their favorite NBC Broadway show was ending this season after only two seasons. The show's star Megan Hilty was one of those upset NBC canceled the program despite its critical acclaim. Although, Hilty admitted she's frustrated about the end of Smash, the actress did reveal to iDesignTimes exclusively that fans will find the ending of the series "very satisfying."
Smash was originally about a fictional New York City theater company and how the company was creating a new Broadway show about Marilyn Monroe. It starred Hilty, Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing, among others.
"We have the greatest fans of the show and they're very, very loyal, but I hope that the season finale is satisfying for people," Hilty told iDesign. "I feel like it will be because they kind wrote it just in case it didn't get renewed, that it would wrap everything up. I think people will be pleased with it. It won't be like 'what would have happened?'"
Hilty dished to iDesign at the launch of the Dr. Scholl's Active Series in NYC, sharing the Smash series finale spoiler, which Hilty admitted may get her in trouble. "There is this great duet that ends the whole thing called Big Finish and Kat [McPhee] and I sing that. It's me and Kat and a bunch of male dancers looking fantastic and it's great. The lyrics are very poignant. It's very satisfying."
Hilty, as all fans know, plays Ivy on Smash. Ivy went through a lot of different situations and emotions on the show. Since Ivy went through so much, we were worried about her end, but Hilty said not to be.
"I was happy," Hilty said about her Smash character. "Don't get me wrong, I love playing the mean girl! I love getting to do and say things that I would never dream of in real life, so it was really fun the first season and second season, it was great to round her out a little bit and show her compassion and her humility a little bit more. "
Although Hilty did say that working on Smash "was the greatest job ever," the actress did admit that she's excited to see what's next for her.
"I just want to keep working," Hilty said about a post-Smash life. "I'll be lucky to get to do anything. Now I'm able to look into what's next. I'm excited. Hopefully it's Broadway or maybe more TV. I don't know! Whoever will let me work!"
We bet there are lots of people who want Hilty to work for them! You can catch the Smash series finale May 26 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
