The Good Fight is coming to an end.

Robert and Michelle King, co-showrunners on the series, confirmed that season 6 will be the show's last in a statement on Friday.

"We've loved fighting The Good Fight these last six seasons," the couple said, per The Hollywood Reporter. "To be able to tell stories about an upside-down world in real time has been a gift."

"And to have worked with these talented, brilliant, generous actors, writers and crew has been a blessing," they continued. "Our hope-slash-scheme is to find ways to work with all of them again in the future."

A representative for the Kings did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Robert opened up about how he and wife Michelle knew now was the right time to end the series.

"We realized not only that were we kind of exhausted, but that we had a good idea for the sixth season that would offer a great climax," he said. "The last thing you want is to have a seventh season that's an anticlimax. The creative guided us there."

The Good Fight's final season is currently in production ahead of its planned fall premiere, Deadline reported.

Numerous Good Wife alums are set to appear on The Good Fight's final season, such as Alan Cumming reprising his role as Eli Gold and Carrie Preston returning as Elsbeth Tascioni, per TVLine.

Robert warned EW, however, that not all fan-favorite characters will be making a guest appearance before the show concludes.

"Because we don't want people to be disappointed, you won't see Julianna Margulies — not for any other reason that this really needs to be the story of Christine and Audra," he revealed. "We've very much stayed friends with Jules, we want to work with her again, but it didn't feel right for this show."

The Good Fight returns to Paramount+ on Sept. 8.
