Mark Wahlberg is saying goodbye to the “Wahlburgers” television series.
A&E released a goodbye video, published by People, amid the show’s 10th and final season. The reality series stars Mark and his brothers, Donnie and Paul. It premiered in Jan. 2014 and is based on the Wahlburger chain of burger and bar restaurants.
“There’s a great turnout, a lot of people came out to support us,” the video starts, throwing back to the first Wahlberg grand opening in 2011. “I think we’re off to a great start.”
“I am extremely grateful because all of our lives could’ve been a lot different,” Mark tearfully tells his family over Thanksgiving dinner. “I’m just extremely grateful for everything and everybody, I love you.”
The series ultimately served two purposes for the Wahlberg boys: taking their restaurant business to new heights and strengthing their sibling bond. “It’s been an amazing journey that has brought us closer together as a family and launched our little business to heights we never could’ve imagined,” said Donnie.
“This business has allowed us to get back to being brothers, to reconnecting,” Mark added. The series finale of “Wahlburgers” airs August 7.
