The Murphys, a dysfunctional Irish-American family living in the fictional suburbs of Rustvale, Pennsylvania, are the focus of Netflix’s adult animation comedy ‘F is for Family,’ set in the 1970s. It is composed of Frank X. Murphy and Susan “Sue” Murphy, respectively a foul-mouthed Korean War veteran and a struggling entrepreneur, and their four children. The black comedy series unfolds through the family’s eccentricities and misadventures, as well as those around them.
Bill Burr and Michael Price created the show, which has gained critical acclaim for its coarse humour, social satire, and Bill Burr’s unique voice delivery as Frank. The show premiered on December 18, 2015, and ran for five successful seasons. Following the release of a hugely entertaining fifth instalment, fans of the programme must be wondering about the possibility of a sixth. Thus, here is everything you need to know about the sixth season of ‘F is for Family’!
Is F is for Family Season 6 Cancelled?
Since its 2015 launch, Bill Burr and Michael Price’s animated series F Is for Family has been a fan favourite, earning a 93 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
In November 2021, the popular sitcom returned with its fifth season, following the storey of Frank Murphy and his dysfunctional family. However, fans who binge-watched all of the new episodes are left wondering whether F Is for Family will return to Netflix for a sixth season.
F Is for Family made a surprising comeback to Netflix for season 5 on November 25th, 2021. The current season, which features eight new episodes rather than ten, begins up immediately after last season’s climax, in which Frank Murphy’s father died unexpectedly.
Frank’s erroneous path toward joining his father continues in Season 5, ending in a magnificent Christmas Eve concert that may just convince Frank of his error of judgement.
To answer the question, F Is for Family will just not return to Netflix for a sixth season. That is because the program will finish after season 5 as Frank Murphy’s quest draws to a close. When Netflix extended F Is for Family for a fifth season in October 2020, the streaming provider stated that it will also be the final installment.
Can't say for sure cuz we have no real plans for it. We definitely would love to do more with Rosie. I'd like to see what kind of Dad Kevin would turn into when he's in his 40s or so. https://t.co/khwGEJkGpw

Is a Reboot of the Show a Possibility?
A return appears unlikely, based on the authors’ and core cast’s emphatic denials. “Thank you to all the fans who watched this show,” Bill Burr, F Is for Family’s co-creator and star, was quoted as saying by Variety at the time of the show’s renewal.
We would like to express our gratitude to Vince Vaughn, Ted Sarandos, Peter Billingsley, Victoria Vaughn, and all the amazing writers, performers, animators, editors, and musicians who contributed to the show’s success. We would want to express our gratitude to the legendary Mike Price (Captain of the Ship).
I’m so proud of our final season of this show that means so much to me. I can’t wait for you all to see what we’ve got in store for you this Thanksgiving. https://t.co/8g0kC0hZaf
