As we quickly approach the start of the 2022 fall television season, The CW is having its annual season finale period, but unfortunately, it is also becoming the home of several series finales. One such series affected by this change is in the Dark season 5.
The unfairly overlooked crime drama completed its fourth season on The CW on Monday, September 5, in unison with the similarly underappreciated series Roswell, New Mexico. Murphy’s story ended in full closure with imprisonment and yet another broken heart in season 4.
When the fourth season of In the Dark premiered in May 2022, it was an unsettling period for the network, as speculation about a potential sale loomed. Consequently, The CW made the unfortunate decision to cancel an extensive list of shows.
Regretfully, it is no longer possible for viewers to expect another season of In the Dark Season 5. The series’ final episode featured a distinct, though possibly unpopular, ending to Murphy’s narrative. It is therefore futile to continue to anticipate a fifth season.
Is In the Dark Season 5 in the Works?
Upon The CW’s announcement to cancel Batwoman, Charmed, Dynasty, Legacies, Legends of Tomorrow, and additional programs, viewers quickly mobilized to advocate for the continuation of these shows by finding another home on either another network or a streaming platform like Netflix.
Unfortunately, the shows could not be marketed to another television channel or streaming platform. Despite the efforts of supporters, the producers behind the programs have given no hint that they will proceed with them, making it seem as if the door is closed.
If you found yourself discontent after watching the finale of In the Dark Season 5, you’re probably wondering if a fifth season will offer any closure. Unfortunately, no further seasons will be produced.
The writers created two potential conclusions for the series in the case of it being canceled following the shooting, and viewers were not met with a cliffhanger, but instead were granted an ending that addressed every unresolved plot point. Although the final resolution was slightly uncertain, there was no leftover plot.
Unfortunately, no further seasons of In the Dark will be released, however, the first three seasons can still be enjoyed on Netflix. Catch In the Dark season 4 premiered on Tuesday, September 13th.
