Will Season 6 of “All Hail King Julien” Ever Happen?

Finally, the fifth and last season of “All Hail King Julien” was launched on December 1, 2017..
In an interview with Collider, showrunner Mitch Watson said, “We always knew it was going to be 78 episodes, so we were able to plan for the very, very final episodes and sort of lead up into that. The hope being that the fans and the audience will find it satisfying, because it’s like, “Oh! I see how it all fits into the Madagascar world now, and why some characters are around and others aren’t.” There’s a super fun cameo in the very final episode. I think it’ll be a nice surprise for everybody.”
The show was considered one of the most popular original TV series on Netflix but, unfortunately, the streamer hasn’t greenlit the sixth season. “All Hail King Julien” ‘s last episode aired in December 2017 thus wrapping the series.
