It’s official – Episodes will end after its upcoming fifth season.
After months of speculation, Showtime has confirmed that the series will not continue into Season 6.
The decision to cancel/end the series was apparently made by creators David Crane and Klarik, who had the following to say:
“We have had the best time making this show,. Showtime has been the opposite of every network we write about. If it were up to them we could go on making Episodes forever. But we’ve told the story we set out to tell and we’d never want to outstay our welcome.”
Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks, added:
“Episodes’ scathing portrait of network executives has kept me on my best behavior these last several years, for which I am grudgingly grateful to Jeffrey and David. I love this show and can’t wait to see what comic heights Matt and company will scale during the fifth and final season of our inspired series.”
Production on the fifth and final season of Episodes begins next week in London, with Jeffrey Klarik directing all seven episodes.
