If Peter Sellers had not died, the next film in the franchise after Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978), the sixth in the series, would have likely been "Romance of the Pink Panther".
Peter Sellers' final official appearance as Inspector Clouseau. The next sequel, (Trail of the Pink Panther (1982)), consisted of outtakes and unused scenes from The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976).
This movie and Heaven Can Wait (1978) marked the return to Hollywood movie making for actress Dyan Cannon who had been in a four year hiatus, her last feature films having been in 1974. Cannon once said: "It's so much fun filming a Pink Panther. We just laugh our way through each day's shooting".
Reportedly, both Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards had said that the previous Pink Panther movie, The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976), would be their last. Then, within two months, Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978) was in development.
