LOVE/HATE creator Stuart Carolan has refused to rule out that the gangland drama will finish after its fifth season.

The RTE gangland drama has been a massive success for the state broadcaster – smashing all previous records for home produced drama.

However there is much speculation that the show’s fifth series, which is three weeks into filming, will be its last.

Creator Carolan has said he hasn’t decided whether to return for a sixth run next year, according to The Mirror.

A U.S version of the Irish drama is believed to be in the pipeline – however it is believed to be a remake, rather than broadcasting the original episodes.

He also admitted that he hates having to kill off his characters – despite the shows high fatality rate.

Viewers have seen many of the show’s biggest characters meet a grisly end.

Aidan Gillen’s John Boy was shot twice in the head at the end of series two.

Meanwhile viewers were stunned when Robert Sheehan’s character Darren was killed off in the closing minutes of season three.

Carolan said the deaths are to show the reality of the world – a world which he hopes the show does not glamorise.
