ABC Television announced today that ‘The Doctor Blake Mysteries’ would end after five seasons and would conclude with a movie-length finale. The season and telemovie will air later in the year.
ABC Head of Scripted Production Sally Riley says, “Dr Blake has had a sensational run on the ABC and we feel that the time is right to go out while we are still on top. We have a fantastic final season still to come and we look forward to wrapping the series up with a satisfying movie-length finale, as we bid farewell to an Australian TV icon.”
Series Co-creator and show-runner George Adams says “Having been the ABC’s number one returning Australian drama year on year we felt that we wanted to go out on a high and to give our loyal audience around Australia and the World, through the telemovie, answers to many of the remaining mysteries between Blake and Jean.”
