'MI-5'It's the end of the road for Harry Pearce and the gang. It's been announced that stylish spy drama 'MI-5' -- a.k.a. 'Spooks' -- will bow out at the end of the upcoming Season 10, which is due to air in the UK later this year.

In a press release, the BBC said that 'MI-5' "has been famous for killing off its much-loved characters in their prime, and now the series itself is going to be killed off at the top of its game."

Jane Featherstone, Chief Executive, Kudos Films & Television, the makers of 'MI-5,' said "It's hard to believe that as 'Spooks' enters its tenth series, the world prepares to face the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 atrocities. It feels like now is the time for 'Spooks' to bow out and make way for new spy dramas which reflect the changing world around us."
