Love/Hate will NOT be back in 2015

RTÉ's head of drama has confirmed that Love/Hate will not return to our screens in 2015.

However, Jane Gogan said: "A sixth series is currently in development with the writer and creator Stuart Carolan and Octagon Films.

"It's just a week since the series finale aired and RTÉ, the producers and Stuart feel it's important to take time and reflect before going to production with a sixth season.

"As a public service broadcaster RTÉ's principal concern is always the audience and the creative dynamic of a drama and we all want to ensure the writing, preparation and production of a subsequent series mirrors the high standards Love/Hate viewers have come to expect over the past five seasons."

Last week the finale of the fifth series gripped the nation with national viewership reaching more than one million.
