In a surprise move, since production on the show's seventh and final season is still underway, the ladies took to its social media pages to announce that the first four episodes were not only completed, but they are streaming now!
Like many other television productions, work on Season 7 was halted in March of 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, the show had only managed to finish four episodes of the hefty 16-episode order for this final run.
Thanks to the bonus-sized episode count for the final season, even getting these four episodes early won't leave anyone feeling short changed whenever the show does return with its final dozen installments.
Fans definitely have a lot of exciting things to look forward to when those episodes finally do drop, even as it appears they may be a ways down the road. After all, according to Dolly Parton, she and her "9 to 5" co-stars have yet to figure out how she's going to finally fulfill fan wishes and appear on their show -- but she insists it will happen.
