Did it ever! The final shot of Golden Wind was a payoff for fans waiting to see Giorno and his remaining, surviving, friends take their rightful place after so much hard Stand fighting and general adversity throughout the fifth season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. With Diavolo receiving a fate worse than death, the band of Stand Users within Passione finally manage to lead the mob into an altruistic direction, with a scene from the Godfather playing out in the remaining final seconds. Giorno Giovanna has now become "the boss" and other members of the gang are now kissing the ring to appease him.
After a long fought battle against Diavolo, and with Golden Wind Requiem trapping him in a never ending loop of death, the remaining survivors of Giorno's posse, including Mista, Trish, and Polnareff, who is currently trapped inside a turtle, return to the Coliseum to collect their dead comrades' bodies. As the hour long finale jumps between the current story and a tale of Bucciarati and company from the past, we get the finale of the episode and are then shown the aforementioned scene with a newly outfitted Mista and Polnareff overseeing Giorno in his new role. Obviously, Trish has had just about enough of that mob life, so she wasn't a part of Giorno's new Passione organization.
We have yet to receive confirmation as to whether or not the tale of the Joestar family will return once again for a sixth season but we certainly hope so as the story of Jolyne Kujo and her Stand, Stone Free, in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure story arc, Stone Ocean, is quite the addition to the franchise. We'll keep you posted should we hear any new information about the bizarre franchise making its return in the future.
