‘Being Erica’ Creator Tackles Burning Finale Qs

Posted: April 22, 2011 in articles, being erica, interviews

The third season finale of SoapNet’s time-tripping Canadian-born gem Being Erica on Wednesday took our title heroine back to her less-than-fantastic beginnings, but the resilient Erica came out the other side to pass Dr. Tom’s test and become a doctor in training. Below, series creator Jana Sinyor tackles the episode’s big questions and previews what’s ahead for the show’s fourth and final season, which she says aims “to tie up any loose ends and to give the audience closure.”

What’s Erica’s journey in Season 4 as a doctor in training? | “Season 4 is about coming full circle,” says Sinyor. “It’s about finding happiness and balance. … The regrets are done. [Erica’s] still learning about herself, but she’s learning about herself through how she’s helping as a doctor in training.” A more mature, healthy Erica will pave the way for the show to adopt a lighter tone. “We’re going to be putting a lot more comedy into the show in season 4,” explains Sinyor. “That’s not to say that some big stuff’s not going to happen.” And to reward loyal viewers, Erica will be “revisiting the most loved characters from the first three seasons,” promises Sinyor.

Who is Erica’s first patient? | The next season will pick up right where the finale left off  “with the reveal of who that is” with the gloved hand. “Erica’s first patient is somebody she knows,” teases Sinyor. “The discovery that this person is her patient is unbelievably shocking to Erica.” In addition to a patient, every doctor needs an office, and Erica’s will evolve into something that’s more reflective of who she is. “She ultimately settles on something that is quite different,” while keeping one element from the original design, explains Sinyor.

    An absoultely amazing show. It’s makes you laugh, cry, become introspective and learn more about yourself and your relatinships through Erica. The writers grasp the nature of relationships, the therapy techniques necessary to push individuals forward by dealing with their feelings, and go through painful sel examination. Through time travel and alternate realities we go back with Erica to try and change her past so she can reinvent her present and future.. it rarely turns out the way you expect. Wish it would last more than a 4th season… so much to learn and do!
