It was looking as though we’d have to wait until 2023 for a new season of The Circle to begin; however, Netflix surprised fans by confirming The Circle season 5 would be among the final series to release in 2022.

On Dec. 28, The Circle season 5 will begin as a wave of new contestants move into The Circle apartments in hopes of making their way to the end and take home the grand prize. Of course, to do so, they’ll need to use their social skills to make connections and win over their fellow players which is always easier said than done.

This season will mark a first for the show as season 5 is being promoted as a season of singles, hinting that everyone entering The Circle this season will be single or catfishing as a single. As a result, we’re sure sparks will be flying as the singles look to do more than just build alliances.

Fans are in for an unforgettable season ahead, one which will once again unfold across several weeks of time!
