Craig of the Creek Season 5 Premiere Date Confirmed by Max

The end of an era has begun for Craig of the Creek as the premiere date for the upcoming Season 5 of the Cartoon Network animated series has been confirmed by the Max streaming service. Craig of the Creek will be coming to an end with the previously announced Season 5 of the animated series, but unfortunately will be releasing in a much smaller form than originally hoped. With its previous episode order cut in half before Craig of the Creek's Season 5 premiere, fans have been anxious to see this new season in action as Craig and his friends bring their stories to an end. 

While the broadcast premiere for Craig of the Creek Season 5 has been previously listed by Cartoon Network with a special new event planned for the first eight episodes of the new season, Max has now confirmed that they will be streaming Craig of the Creek Season 5A beginning on July 11th according to their listings for upcoming releases on the service for July 2023. It's yet to be announced how many episodes this will include, but it does line up with some of the reported broadcast plans for Craig of the Creek's return.
