Fans Worry That Last Night's Episode Of Friday Night Dinner Was Last One Ever

Fans tuning in to last night's Friday Night Dinner are worried that it could prove to be the last ever episode.

The show started airing its sixth season earlier this year, much to the delight of viewers in lockdown, which came to an emotional conclusion last night.

The touching ending of the episode has prompted many to think it could be the show wrapping up.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Please don't tell me that was the last ever Friday Night Dinner. Felt sad at the start of the episode when I realised we won't get any new episodes for at least two years as they won't make any this year, but that episode seemed like the last ever episode."

Another said: "I've been a huge fan of Friday Night Dinner since series one, and if tonight's episode was the last one ever, which I hope it isn't, it was pretty much perfect. So funny, absolutely brilliant."

Someone else added: "That last five minutes really felt like this was the last ever episode and we're not going to have a season seven, are we?"

And it's not just the viewers who seen who think it could be the end of the line, either, as Friday Night Dinner star Simon Bird has previously hinted that season six might be where finishes.

Speaking ahead of the release of season six, he told NME: "We think this is probably the end of the show. Every series it feels more like, 'OK, we're ready to say goodbye to these characters' - we're really proud of it but we're ready and happy to move on. But who knows?"

However, don't get too teary eyed, because creator Robert Popper revealed that he has 'no plans' to stop writing it.

When asked about Bird's comments by the Radio Times, he responded: "That's news to me! 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."

He added: "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.'"

Panic over then, eh?
