Created by Mark Ford and Warren Skeels, ‘Siesta Key’ is a reality show inspired by the 2004 series called ‘Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.’ It follows a group of friends who spend a summer together and hash over matters related to love, friendship, and career. The series first premiered on July 31, 2017, on MTV.
Although the show has been harshly criticized for its lack of interesting content, it has spawned four seasons. Some people noted that not all cast members seemed comfortable having conversations on camera. Nevertheless, the series has been billed as a guilty pleasure and enjoys a loyal fanbase. If you are wondering whether or not the show will be back for a fifth round, we are happy to share with you all that we know!
Siesta Key Season 5 Release Date
‘Siesta Key’ season 4 released on May 12, 2021, on MTV, with the season coming to a close on August 4, 2021. The fourth season has 13 episodes that are approximately 42 minutes long.
Here is what we know about the potential season 5. Despite its small viewership, the series is a consistent performer on MTV. Moreover, it is easier to film reality series like this even during the pandemic since the content is driven by the interpersonal relationships of the cast members. Unlike shows such as ‘The Amazing Race,’ which requires the cast and crew to travel extensively, this series does not rely on the filming locations. Due to the pandemic, networks prefer stability over unpredictability. Taking these factors into account, it is quite likely that the show will be renewed for another cycle.
The filming for season 4 reportedly began in late 2020, which is roughly six months before the season premiere. Therefore, if the show is greenlit for another round by late 2021 and begins filming soon after that, the fans can expect ‘Siesta Key’ season 5 to release sometime in Q2 2022.
Siesta Key Season 5 Cast
The key cast members in season 4 are Juliette Porter, Madisson Hausburg, Brandon Gomes, Kelsey Owens, Garrett Miller, Amanda Miller, and Sam Logan. So, we can expect most of them to return in season 5 if that happens.
Since Chloe Trautman decided to move on from the show after four cycles, it is unlikely she will be a part of the new season if the show is recommissioned. Chloe stated that she was unable to stand the toxic environment and suggested that she stepped out of the show for the sake of her mental health. If the series returns with its fifth installment, we might see Ismael Soto AKA Ish again, along with some new cast members.
What Can Siesta Key Season 5 be About?
The fourth season highlighted Madison’s relationship with Ish as they got engaged. We saw that Sam wanted to take things forward with Juliette, whereas Juliette and Kelsey’s rivalry reached new heights. In season 4, Chloe dedicated more time and energy to work on herself but did not always receive the response she hoped for from her castmates. We saw Brandon navigating fatherhood while trying to get a hold of his romantic life.
If there is a season 5, we will see how the dynamics shift since Chloe has stepped out. We will also see what the future holds for Juliette and Sam and Madison and Ish. But all in all, if the show is renewed, another vacation will reunite the cast members and bring out the drama as they deal with their personal and professional lives.
