Telophase

Once the chromosomes have reached the opposite poles of the spindle, telophase begins. It is essentially the reverse of prophase. The spindle disappears, the chromosomes extend by uncoiling, the nucleoli slowly appear again, and the nuclear envelope is once again formed. Then, the entire cell divides into two daughter cells by the process of cytokinesis where the cell actively constricts its cytoplasm.
