I’m sure the Gen-Zs probably have not heard of this old gem “Taxi” and most likely would not have a clue on what the show is even about despite it being one of the most successful shows from the late 1970s to early 1980s.
Well putting it simply, Taxi is an American sitcom created by James L. Brooks, Stan Daniels, David Davis, and Ed. Weinberger. The show first aired on the ABC network on the 12th of September 1978. The sitcom received 18 Emmy Awards, comprising three for Outstanding Comedy Series. It concentrates on the daily lives of a few New York City taxi drivers and their vicious dispatchers. It stars Judd Hirsch, Jeff Conaway, Danny DeVito, Marilu Henner, Tony Danza, Randall Carver, Andy Kaufman, Christopher Lloyd, and Carol Kane.
The sitcom was produced by the John Charles Walters Company, in partnership with Paramount Network Television.
Taxi has so far launched a total of five seasons. It’s been nearly four decades since viewers last saw the comedy series on their screens and we can only wonder if the mega-hit series would ever be back for a sixth season. Let’s find out all the details below, shall we?
Will Season 6 of Taxi Ever Happen?
Sadly, there never was any announcement concerning a sixth season of Taxi. The last episode was aired on June 15, 1983, and although it’s been a very long time there seems to still be a lot of viewers who are waiting for the series to make a comeback. Here arises a question of whether or not season 6 of Taxi will happen sometime in the future. So is it happening anytime soon? The answer to that is not known since there is no information as of now. However, it is less likely that a sixth season will happen but we can expect a separate reunion show or a movie of some sort.
Taxi Season 6 Release Date: When Can We Expect to See it?
The first season of Taxi consists of 22 episodes and was released on September 12, 1978, and ended on May 15, 1979. The second season consisting of 24 episodes was launched on September 11, 1979, and ended on May 13, 1980. The third season, consisting of 20 episodes, premiered on November 19, 1980, and ended on May 21, 1981. The fourth season, consisting of 24 episodes, was released on October 18, 1981, and ended on May 6, 1982. The fifth season consists of 24 episodes and was launched on September 30, 1982, and ended on June 15, 1983.
As of now, there is no news about the comedy series coming back. So it’s very much unlikely that fans would get to see a sixth season. However, if a new season is ever announced, we can expect to see it sometime in 2024.
