The hit Canadian comedy series Kim’s Convenience returned for its fifth and now set to be final season on CBC in Canada and wasn’t made available on Netflix immediately however the wait is finally coming to an end with all episodes of the show set to hit Netflix in the US in June 2021. Here’s when season 5 of Kim’s Convenience will be on Netflix around the world.
Time for a quick recap for any of you out of the loop or unaware of the brilliance of Kim’s Convenience. Netflix is slowly acquiring more Canadian shows from CBC, but this practice has been a long-standing one.
This comedy centers on a family-owned convenience store and its antics. Netflix released Season 4 in America (and other countries) on April 1, 2020.
Yes, sadly that’s the case. The show was originally renewed for season 5, but it will end with season 5.
The reason why season 6 won’t be going ahead is due to the co-creators of the show deciding to move on from the project. Don’t worry though, a spin-off called Strays is currently in production for release although whether it’ll be on Netflix is currently unknown.
The show has been airing new episodes on CBC Canada every January for the last two seasons. However, COVID-19 was not enough to allow the show back in production on time. It began its final season in January and ended on April 13.
Netflix has always gotten the new season roughly a day or two after its finale airs but that’s not been the case with season 5.
Now, in May 2021, we finally got word that Kim’s Convenience season 5 will drop on Netflix in the United States on June 2nd, 2021.
The release date for season 5 has not yet been announced by other countries, such as the United Kingdom. We’ll keep this post updated as and when we learn of dates.
Netflix Canada is always last to get Kim’s Convenience as the show remains on CBC Gem for around a year.
The season 3 finale was in October 2019, while the fourth in series came out in October 2020. Season 4 dropped in October 2020. This would mean that season 5 will be released on Netflix CA in the latter part of 2021. However, you can still expect it to come to Netflix Canada in October 2021.
