RTÉ have confirmed that there will be a sixth series of Love/Hate, but that it will not appear in 2015.

Over one million people tuned in to last week's dramatic climax.

RTÉ Television’s Head of Drama said: "RTÉ can confirm that Love/Hate will not return to screens in 2015. A sixth series is currently in development with the writer and creator Stuart Carolan and Octagon Films."

Jane Gogan added: "It's just a week since the series finale aired and RTÉ, the producers and Stuart feel it's important to take time and reflect before going to production with  a sixth season."

The national broadcaster now wants "to ensure the writing, preparation and production of a subsequent series mirrors the high standards Love/Hate viewers have come to expect over the past five seasons."
