‘The Secret Life Of The American Teenager’ Creator Brenda Hampton Reveals What Happened Following Cliffhanger Finale

The Secret Life of the American Teenager came to an end two years ago, leaving fans with a cliffhanger finale. We witnessed Amy (Shailene Woodley), the protagonist of the show, leave her son John (Matthew and Joseph Levinson) and Ricky (Daren Kagasoff), John’s dad, to go to college in New York. Millions of fans cried as Ricky read John a bedtime story in the final scene that read “And she lived happily ever after. And so will we.”

Fans never got to know what happened to Amy, or if she and Ricky made it work despite the distance between them. What about Amy’s on-again off-again love interest, Ben? What happened to him? Did Jack and Grace ever get back together? Did Adrian and Omar live happily ever after? These are all questions fans have been stewing over for years. However, The Secret Life of the American Teenager creator Brenda Hampton recently revealed to MTV News exactly what happened to each of the popular characters.

First off, Brenda revealed that Amy never came back from New York. Rather, after a couple of years, Ricky and John moved to New York to be closer to Amy, along with Amy’s dad and John’s grandfather, George.

“That’s right, Grandpa George, Ricky and John all in an apartment in Brooklyn Heights, all so Amy could be with John more often while getting her degree,” Hampton told MTV.“But they were a safe distance away over the Brooklyn Bridge, and she remained in the dorm for a few years.”

With the help of Leo, Ben’s father, Ricky was able to transfer to a different college to finish his degree. With everyone else gone, Leo packs up and moves to Brooklyn Heights, too. Amy and Ricky fall in love with New York and each other all over again. After they both graduated from college, they got married.
