hello everyone. welcome to our website, solsarin.com. today, I am going to talk about people who are still alive from mash.
what is mash?
mash was undoubtedly one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. The show ran from 1972-1983, which puts it in elite company – after all, only the most popular shows can run for ten seasons or more. The series finale, which aired in 1983, was watched by 105.97 million viewers according to the Nielson Company. Despite the popularity of the show, however, only four of the main cast members remained on the series for all eleven seasons. Nevertheless, mash made all of its actors into stars, and seven different actors from mash were nominated for Emmy Awards.

Where are they now?
Below you’ll find brief summaries of what the cast (and producers) of mash have been up to since they either left the series or it came to an end in 1983. Although mash may be their main claim to fame, most of the cast continued acting after the series ended. Sadly, several members of the mash family have passed away in the decades since the show went off the air.
There have been two televised mash retrospectives. The entire cast reunited in 1991 for “Memories of mash” on CBS. In 2002, the surviving cast members came together for the “mash 30th Anniversary Reunion Special” on FOX.
Alan Alda (Hawkeye)
Alan Alda has remained very active in the three decades since mash went off the air. In 1983, shortly after the series wrapped, he produced The Four Seasons for CBS. The short-lived sitcom continued the story of his 1981 feature film. He appeared in a handful of movies during the late 1980s and the 1990s. Alda made his return to TV in 1999 with a six-episode stint on NBC’s popular medical drama ER, which earned him an Emmy Award nomination in 2000.
