‘Somebody Feed Phil’ is a food cum travel documentary that had originally dropped on Netflix on January 12, 2018. With the titular Philip Rosenthal as the host, the show follows a format where each episode features a particular city and highlights its indigenous cuisines. It has been created as a “spiritual successor” to Phil’s PBS project, ‘I’ll Have What Phil’s Having.’
Over the years, the series has managed to grab a special place in the hearts of culinary and travel enthusiasts. Fans love to be virtually involved in the charismatic presenter’s multiple globe-trotting adventures. Four seasons in and counting, let’s now check out the details of a potential ‘Somebody Feed Phil’ season 5!
Somebody Feed Phil Season 5 Release Date:
‘Somebody Feed Phil’ season 4 premiered on October 30, 2020, on Netflix. It consists of five episodes of 46-63 minutes each. On May 29, 2020, in an interview with Variety host Philip Rosenthal expressed his plans for the show’s future. He said, “We’ve done 28 episodes of the show and the next five are coming in October and we still haven’t scratched the surface of the earth — such as India.”
A simple calculation and out of the 28-episode deal, seasons 1 to 4 have aired 22 episodes to date. Therefore, it’s evident that another six episodes are yet to land on Netflix. Since Phil had revealed that shooting is complete for all the episodes, we expect a short waiting time for the next batch – the fifth season. According to our best prediction, ‘Somebody Feed Phil’ season 5 should premiere sometime in early 2021.

Philip Rosenthal is both the host and the central star of the food-travel documentary series. Therefore, he will definitely feature in all future editions of the series. The television writer and producer is best known as the creator, writer, and executive producer of the hit sitcom ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’. He has also served as the host of ‘I’ll Have What Phil’s Having,’ ‘Somebody Feed Phil’s “spiritual” predecessor.
