Telophase is a stage of the cell cycle when the cell has nearly completed its division. Telophase follows interphase, prophase, metaphase and anaphase. In telophase the nuclear envelope begins to reform around the chromosomes. The chromosomes also begin to uncoil back into their less condensed version called chromatin and the cell membrane begins to pinch off. When the membrane has pinched off completely and two separate daughter cells are formed it is called cytokinesis and mitosis is complete.
