At least one of Love/Hate’s leading characters will be killed off in the next series of the gritty RTÉ drama, it has been revealed.

The cast of the TV series were left in shock this week as they received scripts for the much-anticipated fifth series of the show, and realised some of them would not make the end of the season, the Irish Sun reports.

The script reads that at least one ‘significant’ cast member will be killed off, the series will experiment with elaborate shoot-out scenes and there will be a number of new faces in the gangster mob.

The fifth series begins filming on the streets of Dublin in just two weeks but the cast have been sworn to secrecy over their characters’ fate.

It was also revealed that the new series will follow gangster leader Nidge as he is further pursued by the Gardai.

Another actor said it will be the ‘best season yet’.

“There are some big shoot-outs planned which will result in casualties, meaning some very well-known faces being killed off this season,” a source said.
