The final series of Father Ted aired on Channel 4 in the UK from 13 March 1998 to 1 May 1998. It consisted of eight episodes.

Production

Arthur Mathews and Graham Linehan always intended to wrap the show with the third series and Dermot Morgan also announced his intention to step down from the role for fear of being typecast.

Tragically, the day after wrapping filming on the final episode, Dermot Morgan suffered a massive heart attack while hosting a dinner party at his home in London and died aged 45. As a mark of respect, Channel 4 delayed premiering the final series by a week.
