Lifetime Confirms Finale Air Date.
Following many cast comments and hints about the series completion, Lifetime has confirmed the series finale air date to International Business Times.
The final episode of "Dance Moms" will air on Tuesday, Oct. 31 as part of Season 7B. The network has not yet released a synopsis for the last episode, but luckily for fans, they have (http://deadline.com/2017/09/dance-moms-abby-lee-miller-michelle-specials-fall-premiere-dates-lifetime-1202167379/) two specials and several installments to look forward to before the series comes to its natural end.
Ahead of the series finale, multiple stars of the dance competition show have teased the program is coming to a close. On Tuesday, original cast member Nia Sioux told Teen Vogue she was parting ways with the show.
"I was just like, I'm 16 now, I'm growing up, the show has been a great platform, but it's time to move on. During the show, I couldn't take all the opportunities that I wanted to, and now since I'm off the show I'm getting to do what I want to do," she (https://www.teenvogue.com/story/nia-sioux-leaving-dance-moms) told the site.
Chloe Lukasiak, who officially retuned to the series this season, (http://www.ibtimes.com/exclusive-chloe-lukasiak-talks-unfinished-business-dance-moms-justfab-line-2588845) told IBT earlier this month that due to filming wrapping up, she was unable to wear her new JustFab clothing line on "Dance Moms."
Camryn Bridges, the show's newest star, also wrote "that's a wrap" on Instagram following the final national competition in Lawndale, California, on April 15.
The moms have also dropped hints. Ahead of the last competition, Kira Girard took to Twitter to share her feelings about the then-speculated conclusion. "The memories we have created will never be forgotten. I'm so not ready for tomorrow," she wrote. After the competition, Holly Frazier and Camille Bridges also hinted at the show's ending. Holly posted (https://www.instagram.com/p/BS6bEaQgQ4X/?hl=en&taken-by=dancemomholly) a photo of Nia, Chloe and Kendall Vertes to Instagram with the caption "The survivors," while Camille shared a telling photo to her account.
"Dance Moms" will take a break next week, meaning there will be no new episode airing on Sept. 26. The series will pick up again on Tuesday, Oct. 3. When "Dance Moms" returns from its short hiatus, fans can expect to see the official formation of a new team, The Irreplaceables.
Last on the series, the mothers announced to coach Abby Lee Miller that Kalani Hilliker, Kendall, Camryn and Nia would not be return to her ALDC studio. Instead, they decided to form a new group with their former teammate, Chloe.
In Season 7, episode 23, titled "There's a New Team in Town," Chloe and the girls will head to a new studio and receive weekly instruction from Aisha Francis. Their competition dance, however, won't be what fans, or the girls, are used to. The elite choreographer will teach them an adult, burlesque number, something Abby won't have her remaining, much younger ALDC students, compete.
"The Irreplaceables and the ALDC go head-to-head at competition for the first time. Abby's team competes a fan-favorite group number while the older girls shock the audience with a mature routine," Lifetime's synopsis reveals. The summary also states that the adult number will result in "an uproar from Abby and her minions."
"There's a New Team in Town - Part 1 " airs Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime. Mark your calendars to tune in for the "Dance Moms" series finale on Oct. 31 on Lifetime.
