Well, 8 seasons is a long time. Laverne & Shirley ended up getting cancelled because of declining ratings. The show couldn't survive after Cindy Williams left.

The episode in which Carmine goes to New York to perform in a Broadway musical, 'Hair,' is the final episode.

I think the reason why Laverne & Shirley was finally canceled
could be put the following ways:
1)Cindy Williams left to raise her family and they didn't want
to replace Shirley and tried to go on with just Laverne in the
final season.A lot of the show was based on the chemistry
between Cindy and Penny and when Cindy left an important
part of the show went with her.

2)Toward the end of the show Penny wanted to direct more
and more,so in the final episodes she was seen less and less
which made the final episodes based more around the supporting
characters.

3)Finally probably the biggest reason for the cancellation of
Laverne & Shirley was that in the final season(s)it was up
against the juggernaut known as The A-Team.

The show WAS cancelled by ABC. Just because it had a final episode don't mean a thing. All shows have final episodes when they go off the air, even shows with only two or three episodes. "Laverne & Shirley" never had a series finale where things get rapped up, which most shows that leave on there own do, such as "M*A*S*H" and "Seinfeld"
