Well, it's not really ending, according to what Richie said: "Each month we will try to make at least one video in our Mario costumes!".
What they are meaning to say is that Season 5 is the final canon and that the videos with Mario and Luigi after that are spin-offs which have no continuation, midquel, or prequel to Stupid Mario Brothers. The San Francisco video, Christmas, New Years, and Halloween are examples because they don't follow the canon or story of Stupid Mario Brothers, it's just a whole side story outside of Stupid Mario Brothers with a small story of their own.
So technically the Stupid Mario Brothers from Seasons 1,2,3, to the Movie, to Operation Blind Storm, to the Interactive Adventure, and to Season 4 are the pre-events of Season 5 where Season 5 is the ending story. The spin-offs have no plot point in the actual story.
The reason why they are considering making spin-offs after the Finale is to not lose subscribers. If you read comments on his YouTube page, you will see a lot of selfish demanding fans compared to everyone else on the forums. They know that Season 5 is the finale and they are all disappointed but will stay subscribed to watch every episode until Episode 75. I doubt they will promise to upload a Mario video EVERY month (not being doubtful,) it's just said so that way they can keep their subscribers since most of the subscribers are for StMB. There's a lot of selfish fans that it's their best chance to have a huge growing fan base once they reach their desired careers in Hollywood. (EX: Richard for Directing, Chris for Producing, Matt and a few others for acting.)
If they let go of Mario completely after the Finale is over, selfish fans will unsubscribe since they believe there will be no more Mario videos.
MAKE SEASON 5 THE BEST SEASON EVER! DO SOMETHING YOU HAVE NEVER DONE BEFORE AND BLOW US AWAY!
I'm not like those fans who are disappointed about Season 5 being the Season Finale. For the fact you guys have come this far, there's no doubt it will be coming to an end. Besides, there's got to be more you can do. Something better. Something original. Something independent where I'll take the best seat in the house! I hope the first one too Matt!
Since Season 4 was created from fan wishes, I'd say it would be best to make Season 5 to the best of what you think is best. You've learned your tops and flops along the way, so there's no doubt every episode in the Season Finale will be their own best with something new. The only expectation I have is make it the best Season. I also hope all eight characters shown on the poster get a huge role throughout the entire Season. It shall be cool to see more of Mona and how big her part is.
Also one thing I noticed is that Snake and Ness are not in the poster. This could mean they are either minor characters or won't have a big role like everyone else.
All I can say is make Season 5 the best, have the perfect premiere, mid-Season, and finale. I think the finale should be a double or triple episode compared to whatever a normal length episode will be so that way the finale is more like a movie than a show. Keep the comedy. Keep the seriousness. Do something new. Make an unexpected blow away scene or fight. And maybe whether or not if the Mario Brothers decide to return to the Mushroom Kingdom or not. Or they might, you never know.
Good luck with the scripting, filming, sequences, editing, and having a new episode every week that will blow us off our chairs.[/spoiler]
It's my only wish for Season 5 which is to make the final episode longer like a double or triple episode and literally blow us away like we are watching a double episode to a well made TV show. Make it the best Richie!
