RTE confirmed last night that last week’s Love/Hate Season 5 finale is the last episode. There will be no Season 6.
However – supposedly a new spinoff episode has already been started to be written. It will include characters Fran and Paddy from the show.
RTE Commissioning Editor Jane Gogan said: “RTE can confirm that Love/Hate will not return to screens in 2015. However, a spin-off would be based on the remaining characters still alive in the gritty crime drama.”
She said: “A sixth series is currently in development with the writer”.Show creator Stuart Carolan said Love/Hate was over in “it’s current incarnation.”
“I look at all those actors and I’d love to keep writing for them in different ways, but the current incarnation of Love/Hate, I think, is over.”, he said.
He went on to say: “If we looked at Love/Hate again, how to do it, we’d have to do it in a very different way.”
