Well, based on the way it's being advertised, the TV broadcast should end at the end of a volume from the novels, and the four extra episodes will be another novel's worth in its entirety. However, the story itself obviously goes on into future novels. So it should end on "something conclusive", but I assume it'll be conclusive like Episode 5 was conclusive and not like "the whole story is over" in either case. (Which is annoying in its own way; an inevitable wait for the hopeful next season.)
