Jack Whitehall Travels With My Father: Will there be a Season 5?

The new season of Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father has just been released on Netflix, and many fans already want to know if there’s going to be a Season 5. 

Comedian Jack Whitehall has had huge success with his TV show Travels With My Father. Jack and his dad Michael have travelled the world together, completing some of the more bizarre activities you can think of, and every bit of it is utterly hilarious.

If you’re a fan of the show then you’ve probably already watched Series 4 because unfortunately there were only two episodes. So is a Season 5 in the works?

Will there be a Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father Season 5?

  • At the moment there are no plans for a Season 5 of the show to be released.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, travelling abroad has been prohibited for much of the year as the UK imposed many restrictions to try and limit the spread of the virus. Therefore, Jack and his father won’t have been able to go abroad and film this year.

However, due to the success of the first four seasons, it is likely that a Season 5 will exist when life resumes back to some form of normality. Every year since the show’s release in 2017, the new season has aired in September, so Season 5 is likely to air in September 2021 unless filming is delayed due to Covid-19.

What would Season 5 look like?

Every season of Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father has followed the same format. Jack and Michael go abroad to a different area of the world and Jack chooses a variety of weird and wacky activities for them to complete that Michael is less than impressed about.

A Season 5 would inevitably follow suit, seeing Jack and Michael travelling to another new location.

They have already been to South East Asia, Western America, Europe and Australia. So Season 5 could see them going somewhere they’ve never been before. Perhaps South America or Africa.

 

How many episodes would Season 5 have?

Season 1 to 4 of Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father have all varied in episode number. Series 1 and 2 consisted of 5 or 6 half-hour long episodes. Then for Season 4 and 5 they changed it to just two hour-long episodes.

Season 5 would most likely also be a two-parter unless the producers decide to change the format again.
