Meanwhile, fans were recently thrilled to learn recently that a sixth series (season five part two) will be returning to the streaming service. Two showrunners on the series, Joe and Ildy Modrovich, told Entertainment Weekly that after being offered a sixth and final season by Netflix, it was the perfect opportunity to conclude the story properly.

Joe said: "[We were] like, 'No, this is perfect. If we do this [extend to season six], it'll ruin everything! Then three days later, you're like, 'Wait, how could we not have done this?' "It's the story we were always going to tell, but just written much larger and to me so much more interestingly. It breaks my heart to think we weren't going to do it this way." Ildy added: "[We want to] really explore how our characters end up where they ended up."
