Mermaid shows with classic mermaid themes of conflicting feelings about being in their element vs land have always been an eminent, hot topic of discussion. Viewers LOVE watching ’em mermaids in their crazy bougie costumes and their intriguing lives. Likewise, Mako Mermaids is a popular mermaid (and merman) web series with a dynamic plot and immaculate star cast.
Here’s everything you need to know about Mako Mermaids season 5.
When is the release date of Mako Mermaids season 5?
As of this writing, there’s no news as to whether or not Mako Season 5 will even be renewed. Season 5 is a bit of a misnomer – the show was basically split into two parts by Netflix. So, the numbers read differently on Netflix as compared to other platforms. However, none of it matters if the series isn’t renewed for another season.
Since the last episode aired in 2016, news about the renewal of the fifth season has been pretty quiet. The makers or the production team have made zero revelations regarding the fifth edition. If Mako Mermaids gains enough attention on Netflix, maybe then we can expect another season. As of now, there are no concrete announcements. We will update you guys if we receive any information. Stay tuned!
Who is going to be featured in the star cast of Mako Mermaids season 5?
The first season revolved mainly around the new merman Zac and the three mermaids, Sirena (Amy Ruffle), Nixie (Ivy Latimer), and Lyla (Lucy Fry). However, the cast expanded (and changed) as new seasons followed. If season 5 happens, there might likely be certain modifications (owing to the history of the show). New characters have come and gone – so, there isn’t anything indefinite.
Nixie and Lyla left, while mermaids Mimmi (Allie Bertram) and Ondina (Isabel Durant) became potential fixtures of the series. Furthermore, fans can also expect Hansen’s girlfriend Evie (Gemma Forsyth) and Cam (Dominic Deutscher) to return. His mermaid sister Mimmi and her new boyfriend Chris (Taylor Glockner) might also return for the fifth edition. The show developers can also bring in a guest star from H2O: Just Add Water series as they did in the fourth season.
What to expect from the plot of Mako Mermaids season 5?
Adhering to the fact there have been no concrete announcements from the makers of the show, we do not know what to expect from season 5. Season 4 ended in a cliffhanger with the shocking revelation that the water dragon was Zac and Mimmi’s mother, Nerissa (Tasneem Roc). She was magically cursed into that form.
If she’s featured in the fifth season, the show will have a lot of material to furnish and viewers can enjoy her character. Additionally, we might also get to reckon her relationship with her children. Season 5 might also encompass other facets, such as bringing their father back from the past, the conflict between Nerissa and the pod, and so on.
Now that Zac and Mimmi have learnt more about Nerissa, the storyline should revolve around the mermen. Also, because the characters are from Australia, we might as well get to see an environmentally focused storyline. This would make the series more interesting and relevant.
