October 29, 2010 (3:18 am) GMT
Creator Will Scheffer promised that this would be the best season yet while Chloe Sevigny revealed what people can expect to happen to the Henrickson family.

"" is going to leave the TV screen with dignity next year. The show about a polygamist but breakaway Mormon church members family is ending its run after five seasons not because it loses viewers but because it has come full circle in the storytelling.

Creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer said that the show has run its course, stating "When we created 'Big Love' in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell. While we were in the writers' room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story."

HBO announced on Thursday, October 28 that the January 16 premiere would be the beginning of the final season. The cable's president of programing Michael Lombardo said, "I'm happy (the creators) will be able to bring the story to its close the way they always envisioned."

Scheffer refused to dish out details of the final season but told E! Online that "you'll agree this is definitively our best season to date". Meanwhile, star is more generous. She said, "I think that finally you see the Henricksons having to deal with some consequences, for their actions and for their lifestyle. And they are finally getting a little bit of comeuppance."
