A&E announced today that its critically-acclaimed docu-series Born This Way is coming to an end. A digital-only fifth and final season has been ordered, plus an hourlong television finale that will conclude its run.

It all starts later this year with a six-part short-form digital series that will pick up after Cristina and Angel's wedding, following their story as well as those of John, Elena, Megan, Steven, Sean, and Rachel. Then in December, a holiday finale on A&E will wrap it all up as the cast reflects on their experiences during their time on the show.

Born This Way premiered in 2015 and follows the lives of men and women who were born with Down syndrome. Cameras follow them and their parents in their daily lives as they work to overcome challenges while pursuing friendships, relationships, and lifelong goals.
