Poor ‘Brothers & Sisters’ is still waiting for the final word from ABC as to whether it’ll be back for a sixth season, but Rachel Griffiths (Sarah) seems to have implied it’s all over at the Logie Awards in Australia. Making comments suggesting she’ll be out of work next year, she has also revealed plans to direct a feature-length film in her native Australia.
In the US, the show’s ratings have been on the slide during the current fifth season, plummeting to an all-time low of 6.3 million viewers on April 17th. The first four seasons all averaged over 10 million.
Axe reports date right back to this time last year, when the show was picked up for a reduced season of 18 episodes this year. That was later extended to 22, and comments made about the departure of Emily Vancamp as Rebecca implied there were still long-term plans for the show.
The show was not one of ABC’s early renewals earlier this year, with experts saying it had a “50%” chance.
Despite loving the show to pieces, we thoroughly expect official confirmation of the show’s end in the next few weeks.
