In the show many leading cast dies and in the response to a question “why some important characters had to die in the show?” the creator of the show David Simon said-
We are not selling hope, or audience gratification, or cheap victories with this show. The Wire is making an argument about what institutions-bureaucracies, criminal enterprises, the cultures of addiction, raw capitalism even do to individuals. It is not designed purely as entertainment. It is, I’m afraid, a somewhat anger show.

I want to speak directly to co-creator Ed Burns and Mr. David Simon, do another season of The Wire. That’s actually at a minimum…if you don’t want to do a season do a movie. They’ve done an HBO movie, this is a series that deserves a movie. I want another season or I want a movie. I have a lot of power Mr. Burns and Mr. Simon.
