Summer House Is Officially Moving Forward With Season 5 Despite Coronavirus

Good news, Good Vibe Tribe! In the immortal words of Kyle Cooke, “Summer should be fun,” and this one is finally looking up.

After the global coronavirus pandemic threw the future of Summer House into question, a new report confirms production has been given the green light for Season 5.

Us Weekly confirmed the gang will be headed back to the Hamptons for a fifth go-around. And while Bravo has yet to confirm Summer House‘s renewal, an unnamed source also dished that the series “is hoping to film additional episodes” after the dynamite fourth season.

Summer House OGs Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard joined Kyle in their Watermill share house for Season 4, alongside his girlfriend-turned-fiancé Amanda Batula, Paige DeSorbo and Hannah Berner. Newbies Luke Gulbranson and Jules Daoud rounded out the crew. Meanwhile, former Housemates Danielle Olivera and Jordan Verroi were demoted to recurring status. (That means they slept on couches most weekends. That is, until Jordan got evicted from the house for causing drama with Jules.)

However, what exactly a summer in the Hamptons will look like in 2020 is still up in the air. New York has just started gradually opening up after being an epicenter for crisis. Could it make more sense to have the Housemates stay in the Hamptons all summer rather than commute from the city every weekend?

Carl and Lindsay previously opened up to Us Weekly about their enthusiasm for a fifth season, even if it might look “a little different” because of the pandemic. “The prospect of it is incredibly exciting,” Carl said. “I think we’ve got a good crew to do another, but you know, who knows, I mean, this the world that we’re living in right now. Maybe a quarantine house could be cool, but you know, I don’t know. I would love to do it. Because I love the Hamptons.”

“I would be down for sure,” Lindsay added. “I think it would be interesting to see how that would work. You know, I think it would be a little different,” she told Us. “[But] we had a really great season with a lot of authentic and organic drama throughout the entire summer.”
