Love/Hate Series 5 Episode 6

Love/Hate is to be streamed in five European countries via Netflix.

The drama may not be returning to our screens next year, but audiences in France and Germany will be able to watch all five seasons.

In both countries the show will be dubbed by voiceover actors who will be challenged by its distinctly Dublin slang expressions such as "coolaboola".

The award-winning series will also be available in Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands through the new multi-year deal.

Netflix first snapped up the show last year, and it is also available to stream on Amazon and Hulu.

"After the excellent engagement with the most recent series of Love/Hate, it's good to see international audiences looking for the show as well," said RTE head of television drama Jane Gogan.

Love/Hate has already made it to 30 countries including the UK, Singapore and South Korea, and is popular in the US.

Producer James Flynn of Octagon films previously hinted that the hit show could be set for a US remake.

After season five's explosive finale, creator Stuart Carolan said Love/Hate was unlikely to return next year.

Following on from the death of the show's leading character King Nidge, he is considering new directions.

The Navan writer also spoke about the difficulties of creating a show that would have a budget of €4m per episode in the US but got only €600,000 here, and said he "had nothing left in the tank" after five seasons.

It is hoped that Love/Hate will return to Irish screens in 2016.
