“Thanks to all who watched and believed in #thebigleap,” Foley, who portrayed Nick Blackburn, captioned an Instagram video. “I love this cast and will miss seeing your faces on a regular basis. And @lizheldens and @jasonwiner, gimme a call, I’ll fly with you.”
His costar Blain, who starred as Reggie Sadler, was grateful for the experience while sharing Deadline’s cancelation announcement.
“BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE; THANK YOU🙏🏾,” Sadler wrote. “I had the time of my life with the best humans. Living a life I couldn’t even dream of with GIANTS daily. God is good. Thank you for watching. Want you to know we had a 100% @rottentomatoes score. Nobody’s ever done that. We made REAL shit and I’m good with it. I wasn’t supposed to be here… #Grateful”
