Did they cast know that Episode 96 was to be the last episode or was that at the end of the season? Just curious if David left the show or if it was at the end of a season that he quit?

I'm sure the cast knew that the 4th season was going to be David's last one but I do not think they knew for sure if the series was going to end then when they filmed episode 96.

The last scene was open-ended leaving open the possibility that Shirley may see "Cuddles" again.

I would imagine if they knew for sure the series was ending with season 4 they would have had a more definitive ending such as Shirley getting married.

They knew at the wrap party that the series was over. The writing was on the wall for quite some time.

It was typical for TV series to leave endings open. It makes the cycle in syndication rotate much more smoothly.

I figured they would have had Shirley get married if they knew that would be the final season.

On The Odd Couple they had Felix get back together with his wife and he moved back in with her at the end of the series.

It is an interesting thought that having an open ending makes the cycle in syndication run more smoothly. I had not thought of that.
