The date announcement comes after Warner Bros. TV and Ellis closed the deal for the show’s return if Netflix has decided to renew them for a sixth season, which has been in negotiations since February.
Netflix announced the air date, along with the following statement: ‘In the stunning fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever. Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we’ll finally get an answer to the question: Will they or won’t they?
Season 5 will be divided into two parts with Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (24, Major League) signing on for the role of God.
