Why There Won't Be A Sixth Season Of ‘F Is for Family’

The adult animated comedy premiered in 2015 and will not be returning.

F Is for Family has been gracing our screens since it premiered in 2015 but the show has officially come to an end. In November 2021, the beloved series returned for its long-awaited fifth and final season. Co-created by Bill Burr and Michael Price the series followed the Murphys, an average middle-class dysfunctional family, trying to keep it together while exploring different aspects of life set in the 1970s. The Netflix animated series has been a fan favorite ever since its inception, earning a 93 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.



 

For fans asking if there are more seasons to the show, the answer is no. While Netflix confirmed that season 5 was the show's last season, the streaming giant didn't disclose the exact reason as to why the series concluded. Fans however have speculated that the show ended after season 5 because it's clear that Frank Murphy’s journey comes full circle and for many, it was the perfect ending.



 

“Thank you to all the fans that watched this show. Thanks to Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley Victoria Vaughn, Ted Sarandos and all the INCREDIBLE writers, performers, animators, editors and musicians that made this show happen,” said Burr of the show's ending, as per Variety. “Special thanks to the Captain of the Ship: The great Mike Price! I love all you guys!” The renowned comedian voices family patriarch Frank, while Laura Dern, Justin Long, Debi Derryberry, Haley Reinhart, and Sam Rockwell lend their voices to the rest of the cast. 



 

“Working on this show with the great Bill Burr, Vince Vaughn, and our amazing cast, writers, producers and crew has been the greatest joy of my life, and I’m thrilled that we get to do one more season with the Murphys. I’ll be forever grateful to everyone at Netflix, Gaumont and Wild West who let us share this stressed-out, foul-mouthed and loving family with the world,” said co-creator and executive producer Michael Price.



 

“It has been so great to see Mike and Bill – two guys I admire and respect – create something like this and build it from the ground-up. It has been a lot of fun getting to be a part of it, and I’m looking forward to continuing to support their vision, for the final season,” added Vaughn. “A big thanks to Ted Sarandos and the whole Netflix team for being so supportive during this great journey.”

The fifth and final season of F is for Family is available to stream now on Netflix.
