There has been quite a buzz about Camp Cretaceous Season 5 since the day the fourth season ended on a cliffhanger. But right when fans were waiting for any news of the last season of the Netflix animated series, the platform dropped some hints through a trailer released on 23rd June. In this article, we shall discuss the final season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
Camp Cretaceous Season 5 Release Date and Premiere
The Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous which had its debut on 18th September 2020 on Netflix, has got four seasons until now. In 2021 only, the next three seasons saw their premiere in January, May, and December respectively. The last season remained most awaited as the series has received quite a positive response for the amazing voiceover cast, animation, characters, and most importantly the interesting plot. Finally, as Netflix announced in May, Camp Cretaceous Season 5 is going to release on July 21, 2022.
The Cast of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous
The action-adventure series has been the talk of the town of the voiceover cast it has got. Raini Rodriguez, Paul-Mikél Williams, Kausar Mohammed, Jenna Ortega, Ryan Potter, and Sean Giambrone has given voices to the six main characters- Sammy Gutierrez, Darius Bowman, Yasmina “Yaz” Fadoula, Brooklynn, Kenji Kon, Ben Pincus respectively. As fans know for sure the main characters, fighting for their life and the existence of dinosaurs are going to renew their term in Season 5 as it is.
As for the other cast, we will see guest star Jameela Jamil returning as Roxie. While to portray Dr. Mae, Kirby Howell-Baptiste will make comeback. Along with him Haley Joel Osment and Glen Powell who has played Kash Langford and Dave will also be seen in Camp Cretaceous Season 5. The characters of Dr. Mae Turner and Kash Langford are continuing the role after their debut in the fourth installment only but the interesting comeback is that of Dave who has not been plotted in the series since season 2.
The Expected Plot of the Series Finale
Camp Cretaceous’ storyline has always remained a lookout topic for it being the Jurassic Park Franchise. The makers have wonderfully put the context of Jurassic World in season 1 of this Steven Spielberg’s anime series while the second season has depicted the animal trafficking side of Fallen Kingdom. As the makers have already confirmed- the final season is going to be a connective thread to Jurassic World: Dominion, viewers are excited to see where Camp Cretaceous Season 5 is taking the Jurassic Park franchise.
For the oblivions, the Zack Stentz developed anime series is about six kids who get the chance to explore Camp Cretaceous located in Isla Nublar Island after winning a video game. The exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime Dinosaurs adventure turns out to be an escape game for the teens when the same Dinosaurs break free from captivity. The fourth season released on 3rd December 2022 has left the story hanging with the teens still being stranded on the island.
The one-and-a-half-minute clip released as a trailer for Camp Cretaceous Season 5 gave a hint that the characters may find a way to their home at the end as the clip starts with Darius (Paul-Mikél Williams) exclaiming “We’re going home. It’s over.” But the hope to end the terrifying adventure seems to die when Kenji (Ryan Potter) sides with his father Daniel Kon (Andrew Kishino) promising “My dad’s trying to save the Dinosaurs just like we are.”
Showrunner Scott Kreamer has explained the plot for Season 5 correctly by saying:
“At this final chapter in the story, our campers are at a crossroads. On the one hand, they have never been closer to getting home, but on the other, they have never been in more danger of never seeing their families again. There is no clear path forward. They must simultaneously battle to survive the dinosaurs, as well as those that threaten these same creatures’ existence.”
As the fanatics are worried about the relationships of the main characters being ruined as depicted in the trailer, Scott has mentioned to EW earlier that-
“They will face new threats, dinosaurs and otherwise. Relationships will be tested, bonds will be broken, and in some cases, changed forever. It’s all been leading up to this. Even after everything our heroes have struggled to overcome over the course of the series, the odds against survival have never been greater, the danger has never been more real, and the stakes have never been higher.”
Now, it’s a thing to see whether Camp Cretaceous Season 5 can keep up with the expectations of the viewers or not. We all are keen to know what turn will it take- will the kids be able to end their homeward-bound mission positively or will it be an end for them. And what about the Dinosaurs?
