Executive producer Bruce Helford had previously hinted that Season 6 may be the series’ last. Ahead of the Season 5 finale, he told TVLine: “Sara Gilbert expressed to the network that we don’t want to go out without knowing that we are going out with a series finale so we can build to the right ending — and at this point in time, we feel that [next season] is possibly going to be the last season of The Conners.”

But, never say never. Helford pointed to Season 5’s strong ratings as a reason why the series might continue on. The cast has to renegotiate their contracts each year, so anything is possible.
