Series 6 was the proposed sixth season of The Tribe. At the conclusion of Series 5, Cloud 9 still had plans to produce a Series 6. With the Series 5 finale airing on September 6, 2003, presumably Series 6 would've began filming late 2003 into early 2004, with a premiere date in the mid to latter half of 2004. All the characters who survived Series 5 were set to return. Rumors speculated that The Guardian, Alice, and KC would've become regulars again, given they were in the last episodes of Series 5. Another rumor speculated that Bray and Ryan would have returned to the series as well. The scripts for the first two episodes were packaged with the PAL DVD release of Series 5.
Reason for Cancellation Edit
With it's popularity in European countries, particularly in the U.K., Spain, and Germany, many fans were shocked to hear the show had been effectively cancelled. Channel Five, who first aired The Tribe in the U.K. reasoned that the show had deviated from what it was supposed to be about, focusing more on romantic relationships with an aging cast rather than a survivalist show with teenagers. The age of the cast was supposedly another reason. By the time Series 5 had finished, a good portion of the cast were in their late teens to early twenties.
The New Tomorrow Edit
On September 17, 2005, The New Tomorrow began airing. This spinoff of The Tribe featured a significantly younger cast, around 8-14. It featured "descendants" from characters from The Tribe.The show did not do well and was cancelled after only one season. However, it did take elements from the Series 6 scripts, most notably characters that were to be introduced in Series 6, and adapted them for The New Tomorrow. It would be the last news to come from Cloud 9 or The Tribe for next several years.
In 2011, The Tribe: A New World was released. Many fans effectively consider this the equivalent of Series 6. In 2014, The Tribe: A New Dawn was released, effectively becoming the equivalent of Series 7. Both novels have been well-received by fans as a solid continuation of the series.
Future Projects Edit
Aside from the proposed Tribes film, no other projects related to The Tribe have been announced. With the cast now in their late twenties to early-to-mid thirties, as well as many cast members having retired from acting, it's very questionable as to whether or not there will be anymore projects related to The Tribe in the future.
