Apple Music’s award-winning ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series” is renewed for season 5 but will air from its new home, Apple TV+. The Deadline reports that the musical car ride show with celebrities will join Apple’s other original series on its video streaming service.
The series is produced by Apple and CBS Studio in association with Fulwell 73. As an offshoot of the CBS’ “The Late Late Show With James Corden” segment, the series is created and produced by James Corden and Ben Winston. Eric Pankowski is also an executive producer of the show.
Apple TV+ subscribers will enjoy new episodes of Carpool Karaoke: The Series season 5
The project was launched in 2016 when Apple Music won the bid for the series. At that time Apple TV+ did not exist and the four seasons of the “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” premiered on Apple Music. As per the report, the production of season 5 was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic social distancing health measures. Now, with a nationwide vaccination drive, the social activities are likely to resume as pre-COVID times.
Currently, all four seasons of the show are available on Apple Music and the Apple TV app. As per the report, the previous seasons will move to Apple TV+ with the launch of season 5.
They will migrate to their new home on Apple TV+ along with the new, fifth season when it premieres. The Carpool Karaoke franchise, including the Apple series and the Late Late Show segment, have been on hiatus since the start of the pandemic, with efforts underway to safely return them to production.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series features new celebrities in each episode from television, movies, sports, music, and other groups who have a conversation, and sing songs while driving. We also had a glimpse of much relaxed Tim Cook singing to One Republic in the opening video of Apple Keynote 2016, introducing the series on Apple Music.
