The series started airing in 2012 with its first installment comprising eight episodes. Since then four more seasons were available following the same legacy of containing eight episodes. The fifth season was released on Netflix on August 15, 2020. Initially, it was dropped in June-July 2020 in Denmark on Tv2.
Earlier, it was announced by the creators that the fifth installment would be the final one for the series. Also, Mille Dinesen during a press release stated that –“You always have to stop while the game is good and that’s it with Rita. So, Rita season six hereby stands canceled.
But don’t be hopeless, along with the cancelation of the sixth season, we have something interesting for you. In 2019, Showtime runners announced that they are already busy with the making of a one-hour movie based on the story of Rita. The film is already in its production phase and may give some good news in the form of the release date of the movie very soon.
Currently, due to pandemic coronavirus, all the shows have delayed their release dates because of the lockdown. Once the conditions come back to normal, the production will resume in the last of this year. Still, we should not expect any release date before the beginning of 2021.
Till then you can enjoy its spin-off show “Hjørdis”. Hjørdis, released in 2015, is based on a fellow staff of Rita in the same school. It was a total spin-off from its original series. It was limited to one installment only. (check: DeMarcus Family Rules Season 2.)
