This may be hard to believe, but it’s been five years since Lab Rats: Elite Force premiered on March 2, 2016. The Disney XD series merged both Lab Rats and Mighty Med for a truly epic crossover that starred William Brent, Bradley Steven Perry, Jake Short, Paris Berelc and Kelli Berglund. It followed a group of bionic superheroes who teamed up to fight a common threat in their hometown. After just one season, Lab Rats: Elite Force came to an end on October 22, 2016, months after airing its first episode.

Lab Rats has forever changed my life,” Spencer Boldman, who starred in the original Lab Rats series, wrote on Twitter when the franchise finally came to an end. ” [I] will never be able to thank the fans enough for my four years on the show, and want to congratulate the new cast on this past season. Over 100 episodes later, it’s because of all of you I’ve been afforded the opportunities in my life … That show, and our entire cast and crew, will always have a piece of my heart. Unbelievably excited to see what the future has in store for everyone who has been a part of the show, new and old. I’m so proud of what we did.”

It was seriously the end of an era when this franchise officially came to an end — between the epic adventures, laughs and star-studded guests, it was one we’ll never forget! Wondering why Lab Rat: Elite Force really said goodbye to DisneyXD? Scroll through our gallery for all the details.
