We will have twice as much coolaboola action in the next series of Love/Hate as it has been announced there will be 12 episodes!

The fifth series is set to feature even more of what has now become the show's newest character - the law.

"The consequences of gangland is what comes next in Love/Hate, the court cases and jail," said a show insider.

The final scripts should be done by February with shooting to begin in late spring. But we want it now!! At least there will be 12 weeks worth of Love/Hate water cooler chats now instead of 6. Here's hoping there's no cats this time round...
