Friday Night Dinner released its fifth season after a two-year break. The show began airing in 2011, and it became quite popular, and it continued to soar in terms of popularity with its every passing season. After the release of the fifth season, the fans were happy that they got to see their favorite characters back together again. Now, the main concern for the fans is whether the show will take another two-year break before releasing the sixth season.
There has been no official announcement about the renewal so far. (New details at the end) Channel 4 hasn’t dropped any hints about the possible sixth season either. The fans are hoping that they don’t end up cancelling the show. I think the show will come back because if they wanted to cancel Friday Night Dinner, they would have done it by now.
Each season of the show has six episodes. So, we should expect the sixth season to have the same number of episodes. The last three seasons have been released halfway through the year. So, we should expect the same in the case of the sixth season. Unless the show doesn’t take another two-year break, the new season should come out in June/July 2020.
The main cast should come back for the sixth season. The main cast has been putting splendid performances in each other so, I doubt that Channel 4 would tinker around with the last. Here is the cast for the sixth season of Friday Night Dinner:
Adam Goodman as Simon Bird
Jonathan “Jonny” Goodman as Tom Rosenthal
Jackie Goodman as Tamsin Greig
Martin Goodman as Paul Ritter
Jim Bell as Mark Heap
The show follows two siblings who go to their parents’ home for Friday night dinners, and it always ends up in a total mess. The show has provided us with a lot of laughs, and that will be the case for years to come.

Finally, more details incoming, and it is going to make everyone happy. Yes, the show is supposed to return, and the announcement came back in May 2019. While the fans are already having a good time, there is news that all the cast members would also return. However, we do know that Wilson would not be, and all we can say is RIP to him, everyone is missing him.
But still, when we come to release, there are no official details available. But we do know that the show takes a massive gap of two years between seasons, so we expect the show in June of 2020. We had already predicted that the next season would have six episodes, and it turned out right (I know it was pretty obvious)!
