After El Marginal premiered on Netflix all the way back in Oct. 2016, the Argentinian series became a worldwide hit, attracting millions of fans for its addictively interesting plot.

The show stars Argentine actor Juan Minujín as former police officer Miguel Palacios, who goes undercover in San Onofre prison to infiltrate a criminal gang for information on a kidnapping, but, in a twist of fate, ends up being trapped in the prison and forced to find redemption and clear his name.

The series created by Sebastian Ortega hasn’t had a new season release since 2019, but that’s finally changing, as the popular Argentinian series is returning in 2022! With many looking forward to the new season’s release on Jan.19, some are already looking into the future to try and find out if there’s any news on an El Marginal season 5.

Without further ado, here’s everything we know about the fifth chapter in the prison drama.

How many seasons of El Marginal are there?

At this time, there are three seasons of El Marginal available on Netflix, but soon this will change with the release of the highly anticipated El Marginal season 4 on Jan. 19!

Will there be an El Marginal season 5?

Currently, there hasn’t been an official announcement on El Marginal season 5however, several publications claim that “the fourth will not be the last season” and point out that IMDb already has six episodes of the Argentinian series listed under season 5 on its site, so it’s fair to assume that we will definitely have an El Marginal season 5 in our future. But as to when we’ll see it is still unknown.

El Marginal season 5 release date predictions

With not much information currently available on the season, we obviously cannot provide you with a definite release date, so a prediction will have to do for now.

Season 4 is being released in Jan. 2022, a tad later than its typical September-October release pattern, and we have a feeling there was a reason for that. We suspect that given that season 4 filming was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and left fans waiting for two years for the next chapter, creators of the show may be eager to release the fifth season a lot sooner, maybe even in 2022, too.

Of course, we could be wrong, but if a fifth season begins filming in March (as it did last year for season 4), it’s possible El Marginal season 5 could come out in late 2022 or early 2023. We’ll have to keep an eye out for any official updates.

El Marginal season 5 cast

Currently, the only cast member that has been added to the season 5 page on IMDb is Juan Minujín as Pastor. Of course, we know that there will be more cast members, but we’ll have to update this article once we get a confirmed cast.

El Marginal season 5 synopsis

There isn’t an official synopsis available for season 5 at the moment. We assume if and when production begins and we get closer to its release, the synopsis and trailer will be released.
