Max Abbott takes center stage in the Butler, Vermont Series finale when the timeline jumps forward five years and finds Max staring down his 10-year high school reunion, with no desire whatsoever to attend. Under pressure from friends and family, he ends up glad he went when he connects with the one person from high school he didn’t keep in touch with—his ex-girlfriend, Lexi, who has been “missing” the last ten years. When he finds out where she’s been—and why—and realizes all the old familiar feelings are still there, he’ll have to decide if he can risk taking a chance on an uncertain situation with her or if he’d rather continue to go it alone with his son, Caden.
Find out where all the Abbotts and Colemans are and what Fred the Moose is up to five years later as this beloved series comes to an exciting conclusion.
