When the cast reunited for Megan Park’s wedding during the fall of 2015; Brenda Hampton did an interview with MTV News where she answered a few questions on the fates on many of the characters of the series.
Amy never returned from New York, and hooks up with Ben, but quickly realized they were better off as friends. According to Hampton, “They loved the idea of being in love with the first person they loved in high school, but uh, just didn’t connect physically. If they had stayed together in high school, she probably would have realized this much sooner and he would have too. He just kind of lost himself in trying to obtain the unobtainable Amy.” Ben, was finally able to move on and wrote his first novel; based on Amy; while in college. It was a best seller and he continues to write while pursuing a doctorate in literature.
The cross-country travel to get back to John, while taking on college was just too stressful for Amy. After a couple of years, Ricky and John moved to New York, along with George and help from Leo. Leo used his connections at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights to help Ricky transfer and finish his degree, a job at a neighborhood butcher, and helped John get started at school.
Leo also moved to Brooklyn Heights; along with Nora, who moved across the hall with George. Kathleen and Tom also moved to New York, where Kathleen is a fund raiser for a church and Tom is the door man in their building and volunteers as a docent at the Natural History Museum. Anne got married and is off traveling the world.
Grace attends medical school at NYU. Adrian is finishing law school, married Omar and had two kids. Jack and Madison also get married and move to New York; Jack becomes a coach at St. Francis, and Madison became a success in Broadway.
And in the end Amy and Ricky fell in love with each other and got married after both of them graduated; with Amy working a career in documentary films and Ricky with Leo started working on a high end fast food chain.
