Here's Zdarsky's statement in full:

"It was a short ride, but damn it was fun.
"Tomorrow is Star-Lord #6, the last issue of the 'Grounded' arc and, sadly, the final issue for the series. I’m immensely proud of what Kris, Matt and I were able to do in those issues: exploring an estranged Peter, finding his footing without the Guardians, on a planet he’s now out of step with.
"And speaking of Kris Anka and Matt Wilson: They elevated this project beyond my wildest dreams. Kris is a master of form and composition and hot, hot abs and Matt’s beautiful colours set the tone for every scene. Each amazing detail in this book is something you can dwell on with wonder, even if you didn’t care for the words. The sadness I feel with the book being over is 100% tied to the fact that we’re not working together still.
"And, of course, for those who haven’t been getting the individual issues, the 'Grounded' trade will be out soon after, so please check it out. Trade sales won’t save the series, but it may show the higher-ups that a series should breathe a bit before laid out to pasture."
Star-Lord will be the second Guardians of the Galaxy spin-off to end with the "Grounded" storyline, after Rocket Raccoon. Gamora has also been absent from recent solicits, though that title has not been confirmed as cancelled.

Star-Lord #6 is due out on shelves April 19, while Star-Lord Annual #1 is scheduled for a May 24 release.
