Is The End based on a true story?
Writer Samantha Strauss revealed the inspiration for the series was based on real life experience.
She said: “It came from life, I had a sick parent growing up so I was conscious of the right to die.
“I had a grandmother whose husband died [by suicide]. He was worried about moving into a nursing home.
“My grandma was moved up into a retirement village and she was very depressed – my father was a doctor and he gave her six months to live.”
She said her grandma ended up having a great time in the retirement village and discovered she could live a happy life with new friends.
