Friday Night Dinner is just days away from returning to our screens for its sixth series, although fans' excitement recently turned bittersweet when star Simon Bird said that the upcoming run will "probably the end of the show".
Okay, he did follow that up by saying that every series felt to them like it was time to say goodbye to the characters and move on, but STILL! Don't mess with our emotions in this current climate, Simon!
Luckily, Robert Popper, writer and – more importantly – creator of the show, has now said otherwise.
"That's news to me!" he told Radio Times. "Simon said it feels like it could be the last one. Well, I've no plans to end it now.
"You know, whenever you make a TV series, you always think, 'Well, that's probably our lot' – you never really know. But obviously, the show has now become successful, which is lovely.
"So you'd like to think they'd do it again. I think they would. But it's also down to me, if I want to do it again. So I always have to think: 'Do I want to do it again or not?' I love writing it. So who knows? I haven't got a thought like 'I want to end it'."
At the time of writing, Channel 4 hasn't ordered a seventh series, but let's get the current one out of the way first!
Friday Night Dinner returns for its sixth (and probably not last) series this Friday, March 27 at 10pm on Channel 4.
