"Three’s Company," told the story of  Janet Wood, Chrissy Snow and Jack Tripper's platonic relationship while dealing with their landlords, The Ropers.


Airing for an impressive eight seasons, "Three's Company" was extremely popular. It aired from March 15, 1977, to September 18, 1984.

The show was based on the British sitcom "Man About the House" and starred a stellar cast. Fans can't help wondering where the cast ended up after the show ended.

Before the show, John made many stage appearances. Since the show ended, he has appeared in multilayer Harry Hooperman in the show "Hooperman" until the show ended in 1989.

He also had small roles in hit shows like "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," and "Ally McBeal" as well as a role in "Scrubs."

Suzanne portrayed the character Chrissy on "Three's Company." She did not play the role long due to a dispute she had over her contract.

Instead, she went on to land a role in the TV series "She’s the Sheriff" and "Step By Step." She eventually retired from an on-screen acting career in 1999  and later launched a web series called “Suzanne Somers: Breaking Through.”

Joyce played Janet who aimed to balance out Chrissy. Off-screen, however, Joyce and Suzanne were locked in a massive fall out. They did not speak for over thirty years after Suzanne left the show.

After the show ended, Joyce decided to travel before resuming her acting career with a role in “Noises Off” at Michigan’s Cherry County Playhouse in 1991. In 2009, she was arrested for drunk driving.
