Selling Sunset tv season 5 cast, plot news and more

Selling Sunset season 5 arrives on Netflix today, enabling viewers to dive straight back into the real estate drama of The Oppenheim Group.

The season 4 finale left us with lots of questions from whether Christine Quinn would be returning in the next season to what exactly is going on with Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause and judging by the trailer, it looks as though these new episodes are going to be giving us the answers we’ve been waiting for.

Not only is Christine back on the show but she seems to have made an alliance with Chelsea Lazkani – a brand new addition to the Selling Sunset cast – and she isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers.

Here’s everything you need to know about Selling Sunset season 5 as the show returns to Netflix, including who’s in the cast, and where the show left off last season. Meanwhile, if you’re wondering just how authentic the show is, why not check out our guide on whether Selling Sunset is scripted or real.

Selling Sunset season 5 release date

CONFIRMED: Selling Sunset season 5 will premiere on Netflix on Friday 22nd April. Episodes will be available to stream from 8am (BST).

Netflix announced the news on its official Twitter page in March.

“Drama! Drama! Drama! Selling Sunset finally returns with the premiere of season 5 on April 22,” read a caption alongside the promo image and grabs from the season.

We knew Selling Sunset season 5 would happen after the series was renewed for seasons 4 and 5 back in March.

Season 5 started production in November 2021, Chrishell Stause shared a shot of her outfit for one of the shoots.

There hasn’t really been much consistency to Selling Sunset release dates over the past four seasons, but seasons 2 and 3 did film in quick succession, and dropped within three months of each other.

Selling Sunset season 5 cast

You can expect to see all the cast back for season 5, including Vanessa Villela and Emma Hernan, who joined in season 4.

There is also a new agent joining The OG! Luxury real estate agent and mum-of-two Chelsea Lazkani will appear in season 5.

She shared the news on her Instagram, saying: “I’m beyond thrilled to announce that I have joined the cast of @netflix Selling Sunset! So grateful for everyone involved, the list is long and you know who you are. The laughs, the lux, the drama, it’s all there in season 5 and I can’t wait for you all to see it!”

We may not see as much of Jason in the series (though, more on him below) as he announced at the end of season 4 that he was heading up a new branch in the Orange County.

He introduced viewers to new members of the wider Oppenheim Group who he’ll be working with, so chances are we could see them sometime soon on the Netflix series (aside from the confirmed Selling Sunset spin-off).

Selling Sunset season 5 plot

At the end of Selling Sunset season 4, Netflix dropped a tantalising teaser which revealed what’s surely the biggest story of season 5 – and it concerned two individuals.

Chrishell and Jason went Instagram official on 28th July 2021, and luckily for us, the cameras were on hand to capture their blossoming romance.

A short clip was shown of the cast finding out about Jashell and it seems it’s come as a complete surprise to everyone…

Sadly, the pair broke up in December 2021, and it’s unclear whether that will feature in season five just yet, but could become the focus of season six, certainly.

Chrishell took to Instagram on 22nd December to confirm the sad news. She wrote: “I have tried to embrace the world I have found myself in and that includes being open and honest about my relationships.

“It felt scary and terrifying knowing that it may not end in what society deems a success and what I am ultimately looking for. But after many long heartfelt talks, I am choosing to see it as a success no matter what label is attached to it publicly.

“Jason was an is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward.

“Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes. All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.”

Chrishell concluded: “And thank you Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me, even when it hurts.”

Aside from that, a dramatic season four ending left Christine pretty alone and separated from the rest of the group.

While she’s still in the company, at least according to The Oppenheim Group’s website, it seems tensions are still running high between Christine and the other girls.

In a clip shared on Twitter, Christine claimed she was being ‘left out’ of group photos by the other members of the Oppenheim Group team.

It seems there’s still a lot of tension in the office and no doubt season five will explore the drama further…
