Was the Season Finale in fact the Series Finale?

From a press release issued Tuesday afternoon... maybe THIS is what Jon and Kate were alluding to in their ambiguous comments of the Season Four finale? Here is an excerpt (link follows):

Due to the outpouring of concern for the welfare of the children, we believe it is in the best interest of the family to immediately cease production.

We are also sorry to announce that the reruns will be removed from syndication due to the potential negative effects on the children in later years. Please join us in wishing the Gosselin family luck as they settle into a normal life back in their prior house in Wyomissing, which they have always considered home. Jon has procured a job with Sprint at their local retail outlet in Lancaster County, and Kate will be going back to nursing on a part-time basis.

Please do not send any more money, food, clothing, or toys, as it is their wish to restore their family's privacy and self-sufficiency. They have also vowed to mend bridges with family members so that their children can have the joy of becoming re-acquainted with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
