Co-created by Bill Burr and Michael Price, F Is for Family has been gracing our screens since it debuted in 2015 and the animated series has been a fan-favourite ever since, earning a 93% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
In November 2021, the much-loved series returned for its long-awaited fifth season as it continues the story of Frank Murphy and his dysfunctional family.
But for fans who have binged their way through all the new episodes, many have been left asking if F Is for Family will be returning to Netflix for season 6.
F Is for Family season 5 release date and plot
F Is for Family to Netflix returned for season 5 as a Thanksgiving treat on November 25th, 2021.
With eight new episodes, rather than 10, the new instalment continues on from last season’s cliffhanger which saw Frank Murphy’s father pass away unexpectedly.
In season 5, Frank continues on his wayward path towards joining his father with more misguided antics, culminating in a spectacular Christmas Eve show that might just get Frank to see the error of his ways.
Will F Is for Family return for season 6?
No, F Is for Family will not be heading back to Netflix for season 6.
That’s because the show is coming to an end after season 5 as Frank Murphy’s journey comes full circle.
In October 2020, when Netflix renewed F Is for Family for its fifth season, the streaming service announced that it would also be the final instalment.
No specific reason was given at the time for the show being brought to an end, but the final episode of season 5 ties Frank’s journey together in such a fashion that a sixth season arguably isn’t necessary, although we wouldn’t complain if there were more episodes to come.
At the time of its renewal, F Is for Family co-creator and star, Bill Burr, was quoted by Variety, saying: “Thank you to all the fans that watched this show.
“Thanks to Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley Victoria Vaughn, Ted Sarandos and all the INCREDIBLE writers, performers, animators, editors and musicians that made this show happen.
“Special thanks to the Captain of the Ship: The great Mike Price! I love all you guys!”
Fans react to F Is for Family’s fate
It’s safe to say that F Is for Family fans have grown attached to the show since it arrived and may are sad to see it end, while others appreciate the fact it got to conclude on its own terms.
One fan on Twitter said: “F is for family is ending after 5 seasons what a run! Solid show from Netflix. 6 years flew!”
While another added: “there’s barely a few good adult animation shows on netflix…so im devastated that f is forfamily is ending 😩
This fan commented: “Very sad F is for Family is ending. Hope this final season sticks the landing”
And finally, this fan who has seen the ending wrote: “I loved the ending to “F is for Family”. Why? Because it ended. The ending was exactly where the series was heading. There was no plot twist or pretentious message. It just ended.”
The fifth and final season of F is for Family is available to stream now on Netflix.
