Saying Goodbye to “Good Luck Charlie” on Disney Channel

Good Luck Charlie Season 4Good Luck Charlie has been a family favorite of ours since it first debuted four years ago on the Disney Channel. We instantly fell in love with each one of the Duncan family members. After its fourth season, this classic Disney sitcom will be coming to an end, and we will have to say goodbye to Bob, Amy, PJ, Teddy, Gabe, Charlie, and Toby.

Good Luck Charlie was created around the premise of older daughter Teddy, played by Bridgit Mendler, making a video diary to help her baby sister learn the ins and outs of their crazy family. Each episode ends with Teddy recapping the lesson of the day with a video installment, which always concludes with her saying “Good Luck Charlie.” Now on Sunday, February 16th she will make one last video. Gulp. It’s going to be a tear-jerker — we can already tell. We can barely even watch the commercials without feeling our mama hearts break a little each time.

We were lucky enough to interview the Duncans at a press junket for Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas a few years back, and we were happy to learn that this group of people is amazing. They were so nice, funny, and happy to talk with all of the press. When the talent is that gracious, you root for them even more, and we’ve been on #TeamDuncan ever since. We’ve also seen the mom, Amy Duncan, played by Leigh-Allyn Baker, a few times at a number of events, and she is just lovely; it’s always a joy to run into her. The last time we were able to chat with her was at the D23 Expo last year. She was talking about how sad she was that the show was coming to an end.

The main thing we’ve loved over the years about Good Luck Charlie is that this show is enjoyable for parents as well as the kids. It’s almost impossible to watch without relating to something that is happening with the Duncan family on any given day. Between the hilarious Dad, played by Eric Allan Kramer, and the shenanigans of the two sons, played by Jason Dolley and Bradley Steven Perry, you can’t help but laugh out loud at each episode. We certainly do! We think the reason saying goodbye is so emotional for us is because it reminds us of our own lives with our own children who are growing up way too quickly. As Teddy goes off to college in this final episode, some of our children are also entering their college years. It makes us ache with the realization that our kids are at the intersection of adulthood, and we have to let them go. Ouch. Sounds like Charlie isn’t the only one who needs good luck!

It’s by far one of our favorite shows on the Disney Channel, and we’re really going to miss every bit of it: Amy Duncan’s dreams of becoming a famous actress, Bob Duncan’s bug stories, Gabe’s ongoing war with neighbor Ms. Dabney, and Teddy’s relationship with Spencer or her best friend Ivy. Thanks for the memories. The good. The bad. The Charlie. We wish you ‘Good Luck Charlie!’

Don’t miss the Good Luck Charlie series finale, Goodbye Charlie this Sunday at 9/8c on Disney Channel!
