John went on to say that the writing team “had about 20” potential story lines in mind for the eldest child of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy). As fans know, the embattled patriarch died alone in the series finale after suffering from COVID-19 and the effects of alcoholic dementia.
Nothing was sent in stone regarding an update on her character, but John revealed that the writing staff imagined Fiona might be currently residing in Florida.
“We joked in the room that she ended up getting a job at Disney World, probably in Epcot Center because she would never get a job on the better side,” he shared. “We had a lot of jokes for her, but we never actually nailed it down. But she would have a life and be pursuing her own things. That’s how people move on with their lives.”
For her part, Emmy appeared grateful for the love from fans. In response to a viewer who tweeted after the finale that Fiona “deserved a send off party,” the actress replied, “So much love.”
