Summer House’s Paige DeSorbo Teases Best Season Yet: What We Know

    1

    New details of Summer House season 5 are starting to emerge.

    Us Weekly broke the news in June 2020 that Bravo renewed the show for a fifth season. While the show had its highest ratings during season 4, some fans worried that the coronavirus pandemic would prevent the cast from returning to the Hamptons.

    “The prospect of it is incredibly exciting,” Carl Radke told Us in May 2020 before the official pickup. “I think we’ve got a good crew to do another, but you know, who knows, I mean, this is the world that we’re living in right now. Maybe a quarantine house could be cool, but you know, I don’t know. I would love to do it. Because I love the Hamptons. I would love a new house. I don’t want to make too many demands, but fingers crossed.”

    Lindsay Hubbard agreed at the time. “I would be down for sure,” the publicist told Us. “I think it would be interesting to see how that would work. You know, I think it would be a little different.”

    A week after Us exclusively revealed the season 5 renewal, Paige DeSorbo confirmed the news during an Instagram Live with Sydney Sadick.

    “It’s hard to not get mad again at something, but you’re like, ‘Oh, I’ve already gotten over this. I’m past this part of my life,’” Paige said in June 2020 about watching season 4. “So it’s interesting to watch people’s reactions for the first time knowing I’ve already dealt with this. I’ve made up with whoever I’ve needed to make up with. But it’s fun to watch it again and see what people think about it and it kind of gets us excited to film again. We are filming again this summer. I don’t know when we’re starting, but we’ll see. And it will be like a full quarantine house, I guess.”

    The fashionista later joked: “I’m sure there will be days where I’m like, ‘I’m leaving and I’m not coming back!’”

    Us confirmed that production began during the last week of July 2020.

    Scroll through for everything we know about season 5:

    The Filming Schedule

    Summer House typically films three days a week (Friday through Sunday), but season 5 will follow a different format.

     

    “We’ll all be working from home, so I’m sure there will be some fights about that,” Paige speculated in June. “Living seven days a week with all of them … I’m sure will provide some extra drama.”

     

    Bravo executive Josh Brown later confirmed that the cast won’t travel between the Hamptons and NYC during season 5.

     

    “There are a lot of people in their 20s and 30s, in particular, who might have roommates, for example, and when you’re quarantining or when you’re in lockdown, or that sort of thing in this COVID era, your family is really your friends. So, that is the case with Summer House. They are coming to the house to all live together, and to quarantine together safely. They really are a family, especially at this point, you know? Some of them may be fighting like brothers and sisters, but they are a family,” he told the Daily Dish in September. “Instead of going back and forth to the city, they are living together all through the summer in the Hamptons in their summer rental. I think it really taps into a phenomenon right now of, you know, how do you quarantine with friends? And how do you get along with them as a family?”

    The Length of Filming

    Hannah and Paige may have dropped hints about how long they are set to film season 5 when signing off on their “Giggy Squad” Instagram Live show on July 27. While the costars typically go live several nights a week, they told fans they won’t be back for around “two months.”

    The Parties

    While every season of Summer House typically features several over-the-top parties, it’s unclear if the group will be able to have extravagant get-togethers amid the COVID-19 crisis.

     

    “I don’t know if we can even have parties this year,” Paige said on June 15 before revealing that she wanted to have a circus or ‘80s prom-themed bash during season 4.

    Going Out

    According to Paige, who has been spending time in the Hamptons in recent weeks, the cast will likely get to film some scenes outside of the house.

     

    “I feel like we definitely will be able to go out to dinners because everyone’s sitting outside and obviously wearing masks into the restaurants,” she said. “So I feel like it won’t be exactly the same as it was last summer, obviously, but we will definitely be able to do certain things.”

    Amanda and Kyle’s Wedding

    While Amanda and Kyle are set to wed on September 24, 2020, it’s unclear if their nuptials will go ahead as planned due to the pandemic.

    “Whether the wedding ceremony happens or not, we’ll probably just end up getting married no matter what, and celebrating it later on,” Amanda told Entertainment Tonight in April.

    Best Season Yet?

    “I think it’s actually gonna be our best season yet, ironically, even with these limitations,” Brown teased. “Let’s put it this way. I’m not more worried about Bravo than I’m worried about the world, you know? Just because, we don’t know where the world is going. But the one thing I do know is that everyone is really dedicated to making these series and to making them happen. Safety is our number one priority. If we can do things safely, we will do them.”

    Paige shared Bravo’s story about Summer House season 5 being the best yet and added, “Yeah it will be.”
