The Family Business Season 5 Release Date – Everything You Need to Know

The Family Business Season 5

If you are a fan of original crime drama television series, The Family Business is a humor-filled, light-hearted yet engaging series that you have to add to your must-watch. The series has been created by Carl Weber and has four successful seasons out already.

Now, the audience is awaiting further news about the fifth season. Will it be released? Has BET canceled the series? There are several questions that the audience is currently thinking of.

We will highlight everything that one needs to know about The Family Business Season 5, its release date, and the expected plot.

When is The Family Business Season 5 Releasing?

The Family Business has yet to be renewed for a fifth season by BET. But, don’t let that deter your conviction regarding the show’s return in the future. It is most definitely happening.

Carl Weber, the show’s creator, took to his Facebook page to share updates about the fifth season and the expected release date. He wrote in the post that they are 40% done with the fifth season’s plot. The delay is primarily due to the writer’s guild strike that was happening a few months back.

Not just that, Carl also shared the good news that with BET giving the streaming rights to Netflix, the first four seasons of The Family Business will now be available on Netflix as well. So, if you have been meaning to catch up with the first four seasons before the release of the fifth one, now is the time.

What can we expect from The Family Business Season 5?

The fourth season of The Family Business ended with a cliffhanger, so the fifth season will likely pick up right where it left off. 

In the fourth season finale, we saw the Young family dealing with the aftermath of the death of patriarch LC Young. The family is also facing new threats from rival crime families and from within their ranks. 

The fifth season will likely see the Young family continue to fight to protect their business and their legacy. We can also expect to see more drama, intrigue, and betrayal.

Keep in mind that these are only speculations and not the actual plot of what’s going to happen in the fifth season. We’d have to wait to see how things unfold.

Who is returning to The Family Business Season 5?

All of the main cast members from the fourth season will likely return for the fifth season. This includes: 

  • Ernie Hudson as LC Young 
  • Vanessa Bell Calloway as Bird Young 
  • Valarie Pettiford as Thelma Young 
  • Javicia Leslie as Gigi Young 
  • Emilio Rivera as Tio 
  • Tami Roman as Donna 
  • Arlen Escarpeta as Benny 
  • Michael Jai White as Cassius


If you have been awaiting confirmed news about the release of The Family Business Season 5, we don’t have any yet. However, what we do know for sure is that the first four seasons are now available on Netflix for you to stream.
