After another exciting season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, subscribers are chomping at the bit to find out what’s in store for the campers in season 5. However, we’re waiting for Netflix to make an announcement on the future of Camp Cretaceous, which we expect will arrive very soon. Below is everything we know so far about Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous season 5.
Set in the cinematic universe of Universal’s Jurassic World, Camp Cretaceous is the first spin-off series we’ve seen since Jurassic World debuted in cinemas in 2015. Incredibly successful in its own right, the series has amassed a great fan following on Netflix and was even the recipient of the 48th Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement for Animated Effects.
With the release of season 4, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous now has a total of 37 episodes. The first four seasons arrived between September 2020 and December 2021:
- Season 1 arrived on September 18th, 2020
- Season 2 arrived on January 22nd, 2021
- Season 3 arrived on May 21st, 2021
- Season 4 arrived on December 3rd, 2021
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 5 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 06/12/2021)
At the time of writing Netflix hasn’t made a decision on the future of Camp Cretaceous, however, we’re certain a renewal is guaranteed. Not only has the animated series been extremely popular with Netflix subscribers, but the series has also played a key role in the wider narrative of the Jurassic World story by filling in the gaps between the movies.
Jurassic World: Dominion, the next movie of the franchise, is due to be released in June 2022. This means we can expect to see at least one more season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous before the summer.
Does Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous need a fifth season?
Just like the previous three seasons, season 4 also ended on a cliffhanger.
Despite mentioning him numerous times throughout the series, we’d never seen Kenji’s father. That is until the big reveal of season 4 that Kash’s boss is Kenji’s father, with the latter shocked to come face to face with his son.
What to expect from Camp Cretaceous season 5
Will Kenji side with his father?
Throughout the series, it’s been made clear that Kenji’s father is an extremely busy man and has been absent throughout most of Kenji’s upbringing. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be extremely hard for Kenji to choose a side in the conflict of season 5.
As Kash’s boss, and the mastermind behind the experiments being conducted on the dinosaurs, this revelation will be devasting for Kenji, who likely had no idea what his father was doing.
Kenji has proven himself to be a good person, brave, and an extremely loyal friend to the other campers. But Kenji’s resolve will be pushed to the absolute limit if he has to fight against his own father. We’ll likely see Kenji’s father try to manipulate his son to switch sides, but Kenji will come through in the end and try to stop any nefarious and dastardly plans his father has.
Will Brandon find Darius?
Darius was able to get hold of Kash’s phone and used it to phone his older brother Brandon. However, Darius was only able to say hello before Kash hung up the phone. We later saw Brandon pack a bag, stating his intent to find his little brother. It’s unclear if GPS was active and Brandon can find the island, but it’s clear he is determined to find Darius and bring him home.
What will happen to the dinosaurs on the island?
Ingen and Masarani were once the exclusive owners of Dinosaur DNA, but thanks to the events of season 4 we now know this is no longer the case. Mantha Corp now has access to Dinosaur DNA from some of the Dinos of Isla Sorna, and they are funding Kash’s research into aggressive dinosaurs that can be controlled and manipulated into fighting each other for the purpose of high roller gambling.
Assuming that Mantah Corp can be stopped, will the campers somehow free the Dinosaurs from the mysterious island?
When will Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous season 5 be released on Netflix?
Thanks to the release of the previous seasons of Camp Cretaceous, we can speculate on the season 5 Netflix release date.
From September 2020 to May 2021, three seasons of Camp Cretaceous were released. The fourth season then arrived in December 2021. This means the shortest time between seasons was four months, and the longest was seven.
At the earliest, we can expect to see season 5 released on Netflix in April 2022. We’d be surprised to see season 5 arrive in July 2022 as this would mean the next season would land after the release of Jurassic World: Dominion.
