Love And Hip Hop Miami Season 5: Details We Know So Far

VH1's "Love & Hip Hop" franchise continues to expand at a furious pace, and "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" is one of its most popular editions. Per IMDb, the show debuted in 2018, and featured big names Trina and Trick Daddy among the cast of both established and wannabe music stars trying to make it big in South Florida. Unlike other iterations of the hit show, the "Miami" strand features notable figures from the world of Latin music too, as well as Southern hip-hop. 

Although the second and third seasons of "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" followed in quick succession, there was a significant gap between the release of Season 3 and Season 4. This was due predominantly to the COVID-19 pandemic, which halted many reality TV productions in their tracks. However, now that the fourth season is done and dusted — and because it was one of the most compelling and dramatic installments of the show yet — fans are eager for another visit to Miami. Here's everything we know about "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" Season 5 thus far. 

Has "Love and Hip Hop: Miami" been renewed for Season 5?

Per IMDb, Season 3 of "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" finished airing in early April 2020, with a massive two-part reunion special, but it wasn't until late August 2021 that the hit show returned for Season 4. As The Futon Critic reported at the time, VH1 didn't actually make the announcement until a couple weeks before the show was due to debut, with "Miami" set to return immediately following an all-new episode of sister show "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta." 

Likewise, catch-up special "Love & Hip Hop: Miami: Inside the 305" reintroduced fans to their favorite stars including Trina, Trick Daddy, and Bobby Lytes, as they looked back on some of the biggest moments in the show thus far. They teased more drama and higher stakes as the cast of newcomers and series stalwarts alike continued to fight to make their mark on Miami. Although interest was clearly high, we haven't heard much about Season 5 in the months since. Perhaps that's because the show hasn't *actually* been renewed just yet, according to Premiere Date. However, considering VH1 didn't announce Season 4 was coming back until shortly before new episodes began airing, fans can rest assured that no news is good news. "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" typically debuts in January, but Season 4 arrived in August, so we might see new episodes in just a few months. Otherwise, fans could be waiting until January 2023 (but hopefully not).

Who can we expect to see on Season 5 of "Love and Hip Hop: Miami?"

"Love & Hip Hop: Miami" has several core cast-members who keep things trucking along each season, from Trick Daddy to Shay Johnson. However, Season 4 saw the injection of some much-needed new blood into the cast. As Vibe reported, notable rappers N.O.R.E. and Ace Hood first appeared in a trailer for the show, and were embraced by fans when they debuted on the set of "Miami." Rounding out the cast, Florence El Luche, known as the Haitian "Queen of Kompa Music," also joined the cast in Season 4, per Vibe. Show regulars Trick Dady, Johnson, Trina, Sukihana, and Amara La Negra all returned for more music industry-based mayhem. While we'll have to wait and see who returns for Season 5, it's safe to assume that the core cast will be back to shake things up, hopefully with a few talented newcomers, too.

On what keeps La Negra coming back for more, the reality star quipped to 1430 WCMY, "These checks," before quickly adding, "I feel like 'Love & Hip Hop' is home." In particular, La Negra relishes the opportunity to promote her music while simultaneously keeping fans updated on everything going on in her life. She also confirmed that the show has "opened up major doors" in her career.

What could "Love and Hip Hop: Miami" Season 5 be about?

Plenty has been going on with the cast-members of "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" since Season 4 wrapped. In August 2021, NBC Miami reported that long-time star Christopher Harty, aka the Prince of South Beach, was arrested following allegations of battery and kidnapping. Harty's attorney believed his client would be exonerated, thanks to surveillance footage from the day in question. 

Elsewhere, Amara La Negra confirmed she was pregnant with twins after suffering a miscarriage, as People en Español reported in November 2021. Per the outlet, the singer admitted that she learned she was expecting while filming the previous August. La Negra was concerned about her work commitments, admitting, "I'm not going to lie, it took me like two days to process everything that had just happened." Thankfully, "I started to cheer myself up because at the beginning [I felt] a lot of fear," she told People en Español. The Dominican star also revealed that she believed she was pregnant with triplets at the time she miscarried. "It's hard to say it now because I had a lot of bleeding, and I was in a lot of pain. I wasn't precisely looking [to become pregnant] at this time, but I always said: 'If God sends it to me, Amen, it's decided,'" she shared. It's likely that La Negra's pregnancy and Harty's law troubles will both be covered on Season 5, but either way, we're in for a drama-filled season.
