UK comedy Plebs will wrap with a finale special, after earlier reports it had been given a sixth season.
A single feature-length finale will now conclude the show after 5 seasons, with characters played by Tom Rosenthal, Ryan Sampson and Jon Pointing enlisting in the army.
Ddirector Sam Leifer said: “After five series, we wanted to go out with a bang. So we’re sending the plebs off to join the army. Unsurprisingly, they won’t cover themselves in glory or return as conquering heroes.”
The series about 20-somethings living in the ancient metropolis of Imperial Rome was due to start production in May but has been pushed back.
Plebs airs in Australia on ABC Comedy,
