Approval Seems To Hang

I am trying out the approval process but  everytime I add an Appoval into the flow it always hangs at that point when the flow is run. I have even tried a template and that is the same. I have attached a screenshot of the flow for reference.

In case someone else is looking for an explanation.  That behavior is by design.  The Flow will pause on an Approval Action until the Approver(s) respond.  Then it continues so it can process the response(s).

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.
