The thing about "Selling Sunset" is that we simply cannot get enough of it. We came for the real estate and stayed for the real drama. And because we devoured the show's fourth season, which premiered on Netflix on 24 Nov., so quickly, the streamer is dropping season five sooner than we thought.
On 22 March, People reported that "Selling Sunset" had finally set a premiere date: 22 April. This time around, the show welcomes another cast member to the ever-expanding group: British Nigerian luxury realtor Chelsea Lazkani. According to the outlet, Lazkani previously worked in the corporate world and at another Los Angeles real estate agency before joining the Oppenheim Group.
Netflix renewed "Selling Sunset" for seasons four and five in March 2021, and the latter season finished filming back in November. Cast member Chrishell Stause teased the news of season five when she left a comment on an Instagram post that same month. When a fan said that season five should come out ASAP, Stause replied, "Season 5 won't be too long of a wait! We just wrapped filming!"
Based on the teaser shared during season four, the upcoming season may show glimpses of Stause's relationship with Jason Oppenheim, her boss and the president of the Oppenheim Group brokerage at the center of the show, before the two broke up in December. Season five may also delve into the lingering drama with Christine Quinn; some speculated she was leaving the show or the brokerage until she set the record straight. In a tweet in October, Quinn clarified that she's in "every single episode of season 4 and 5" of the show.
Season five's trailer has yet to be released, but with the premiere date just around the corner, Netflix should be releasing it any day now!
