This Love/Hate news is the worst thing we’ve heard all week

Get ready to be disappointed as it has been confirmed that Love/Hate will NOT be returning next year!

That’s right we won’t be finding out the fate of some of our favourite characters any time soon – but that doens’t mean never!

RTÉ's Head of Drama, Jane Gogan, confirmed the news that Ireland’s favourite crime drama (or TV show ever for that matter) won’t be on the schedule for next year, but did add: “A sixth series is currently in development with the writer and creator Stuart Carolan and Octagon Films." 

"It’s just a week since the series finale aired and RTÉ, the producers and Stuart feel it’s important to take time and reflect before going to production with a sixth season"

"As a public service broadcaster RTÉ’s principal concern is always the audience and the creative dynamic of a drama and we all want to ensure the writing, preparation and production of a subsequent series mirrors the high standards Love/Hate viewers have come to expect overt the past five seasons."

While we may be bitterly disappointed we’ll have to wait until 2016 (we hope!) to see what happens next after THAT last episode, it sounds like Stuart and the producers have decided against making a series for the sake of popularity – which we love!

Roll on 2016!
