Finally, after a year-long wait, Selling Sunset returned to our screens with all the promised glitz, and drama we’ve come to expect from the previous seasons. All the episodes of Selling Sunset season four dropped on November 24th—which, of course, means we’ve binged watched it all—and are already asking when is the next season of Selling Sunset?

This season alone saw the introduction of two new realtors, Vanessa Villela and Emma Hernan, plus the birth of Christine Quinn's son, tours of incredible mansions, and obviously, massive fallouts. So much so, that we’re already desperate for the next installment.

So If you,  like us, cannot get enough of the endless drama, here’s the lowdown on everything we know about Selling Sunset season 5...

Selling Sunset Season 5: When is the next season of Selling Sunset? 

There’s good and bad news. According to Digital Spy,  the release date for season five has not yet been confirmed, but we do know that it has already been filmed. This thankfully means we won’t be waiting too long.

It will likely drop in early 2022, but until then we have the new Selling Sunset spin-off, ‘Selling Tampa’ landing on Netflix on December 15th, to tide us over!

What will happen in Selling Sunset Season 5?

If you’ve already watched the entirety of Season 4, you'll have seen the sneak peek of what’s to come in the next series. We have also known for a while that a certain blossoming romance would feature—yes we’re talking about the news that Chrishell Stause is dating boss Jason Oppenheim.

The juicy news broke in July 2021, and in the first look, we got to see the reaction of the rest of the cast, with Heather Rae Young saying: “It's insane to me. It’s so weird though, but exciting.” 

We also saw Chrishell say: “We're not criminals, we didn't do anything wrong.” before kissing Jason, so it’s fair to assume there will be some drama around the news of their relationship. We will also see the cast take a trip to Greece, which is when the relationship news broke IRL.

We also know that Heather and fiancé Tarek tied the knot, but this is unlikely to be featured in the next season. We will also likely see more drama between Mary and Christine—if she returns.

Who will return for Selling Sunset season 5?

As far as we know, everyone will be returning but many fans feared Christine would not, after she left a party at the end of the last episode, following an explosive fight with Mary. As she left, there were mutterings from the cast that she should quit.

Christine however, set the record straight after the rest of the cast posted pictures without her while filming for Season 5—which caused more speculation that she had left.

She posted to Twitter saying: "Got cut off and I'm SOOOOO tired of addressing this. I am in every single episode of seasons 4 and 5 of selling sunset. The girls intentionally leave me out of photos. I have real work to do besides sit on my phone and prove 24/7 that I'm filming a TV show. Yall going to see me."
