The show had auditions for their sixth season in January 2010, but on
June 14, 2010, WGBH Boston announced that Season 5 will be the final
season due to lack of funding. On June 27, 2010, Jim Conroy (the voice
of Ruff) made the official announcement at the Daytime Emmy Awards
ceremony. On his Facebook page, he said, “It's such an impossible task
going up against Sesame Street, Cyberchase, and The Electric Company. So
you have to consider the nomination as a win. Can't complain. PBS gave
us 100 episodes and 5 seasons. Many good shows never saw that kind of
time.” Fetch! aired its fifth and final season in October 2010.
