"It was amazing playing the role 'NANA'. It’s a bitter sweet feeling taking a bow but I hope you learned something from our story…. It’s always a pleasure telling this story… it’s never goodbye it’s see you soon," Jackie stated.

Over the weekend, Lulu Hassan shared a trailer of the new show and fans are already in love with what has been displayed in the 44-second clip.

In March, 2021, Maria ended with a wedding between Luwi Hausa (played by actor Brian Ogana) and the main character Maria (played by actress Yasmin Said), as the 'Boss William' character got arrested for the 'crimes' he committed in the series.

“As we make our last curtain call, this journey has been one hell of a journey with you the fans to thank for and for always choosing Maria and staying glued to watch your favorite soap opera. We wanna say thank you and we are glad you enjoyed it, we are glad we made you happy. # season1down See you soon,” shared Lulu Hassan in March 2021 when Maria was coming to an end.

Just the other day she made it clear that the soap opera will not be coming back for season two, as earlier promised.
