Season 5 officially wrapped filming back in December 2021 and Netflix has now revealed the release date for the new season, and there's not long left to wait at all!

Selling Sunset season 5 release date 

When Mary Fitsgerald appeared on Lorraine with her husband Romain Bonnet last year, she teased that the new season would be explosive and that Selling Sunset season 5 could drop on Netflix as early as March 2022. 

Her best guess wasn't far off! Netflix has since revealed that the new season of the hit reality show would premiere on Netflix on Friday, April 22.

What will happen in Selling Sunset season 5?

Looking at the teaser trailer, it seems as though season 5 will focus on Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim’s relationship, and how the rest of the cast react to the shocking news. However, it's been rumored that they have reportedly split (opens in new tab) already.

Season 4 was jam-packed with the usual drama, mostly involving "Queen Bee" Christine Quinn who had given birth during the series. We also welcomed two new real estate agents, Emma Hernan and Vanessa Villela, with Christine already having hostility towards Emma over an ex-boyfriend. 

As the arguments between Christine and her co-workers ensued, we also got to see the highs and lows of the glamorous real estate agents, such as Amanza Smith’s custody problems and Chrishell recovering after her brutal divorce.

The trailer has also giving us a glimpse into a new friendship formed between Christine and new realtor Chelsea Lazkani, who have vowed to "take over."

Will Christine manage to make amends with the Oppenheim Group girls? We’ll have to find out in season 5!

Who's joining the Oppenheim Group?

Jason and Chrishell's relationship is bound to cause a huge stir, but there's also a new face joining the team in Selling Sunset season 5. 

British-Nigerian luxury realtor Chelsea Lazkani has signed on for the new season, and she recently spoke to People (opens in new tab)about her part in the show. She said she "was always very familiar with Oppenheim Group" ahead of joining, but mentioned she hadn't met any of the other realtors before she joined, but said they have all "really inspired" her.

Although she didn't give much away about what's going to happen, Chelsea teased that the upcoming season is "so juicy" and suggested "its [like] nothing you've ever seen before on TV".

Is there a trailer? 

Yes! You can watch the trailer below, where we see the cast talking about the “news” going around the office. At the end of the clip, we can guess that this “news” is probably about Chrishell and Jason’s new relationship as we see them kiss. 

And a further trailer has landed. It sees Queen Bee Christine finding a new ally in newcomer Chelsea Lazkani.

The pair seem to hit it off straight away when they’re both standing on the balcony of a huge mansion, with Chelsea saying, “I just love this view.”

“And I love looking down on people,” Christine adds.

“The little people,” Chelsea chimes in.

“Hi peasants!” they both jokingly shout in unison as they wave and laugh.

Both trailers are below...
