This article is a preview for Avenue 5 season 2, episode 5 and contains details about the release date, time, and where to watch online.

Created and written by Veep‘s Armando IannucciAvenue 5 is a sharply satirical sci-fi comedy on HBO and HBO Max. After a successful first season about a luxury space cruise that went catastrophically wrong, the second season picks up where we left off, with the journey having been extended by eight long years after a series of avoidable calamities.

Here’s the official Avenue 5 Season 2 synopsis:

Picking up five months after failing to reroute the vessel, Season 2 follows the crew – including fiery engineer Billie, unpredictable head of customer relations Matt, and faithful right-hand Iris – as they struggle to lead, calm, control, and, if need be, hide from increasingly unruly passengers. On earth, they’re lauded as heroes, and in space, everyone can hear them scream.

Avenue 5 season 2, episode 4 recap:

  • Billie put the ship into lockdown to try and search for the missing cannibal, but thanks to Rav’s ineptitude, the whole ship found out about the search.
  • Using the security monitors Ryan — with Frank’s help — was finally able to track the cannibal, Nathan, down. He was partaking in an impromptu therapy session with Mia, Matt, Elena, and Elena’s daughter Paloma.
  • Once again thanks to Rav not shutting the bridge communicator off, the entire ship found out about the dwindling food supply and the real journey time, sending everyone spiraling into chaos.
  • Judd tried to blackmail Lucas into helping the ship, but accidentally revealed Earth’s imminent lithium shortage, throwing away his leverage and plunging Earth into chaos too.

Avenue 5 season 2, episode 5 release date/time

The next episode is slated for release on Monday, November 7, 2022 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on HBO and HBO Max.

Where to watch Avenue 5 season 2 online

As mentioned above, the show is exclusive to HBO and HBO Max. The latter is available with a subscription: The ad-free package runs $14.99/month or $149.99/year while the ad-supported model will set you back $9.99/month or $99.99/year.

How many episodes will Avenue 5 season have?

Avenue 5 Season 2 will consist of eight episodes, down from the nine of the first season, and they’ll run on a weekly cadence through to November 28, 2022.


There is no official synopsis for the episode available, but we can make some assumptions:

  • I’m still keen on the idea that Earth’s lithium shortage is going to position the Avenue 5 as the only hope for the salvation of the human race, so Lucas won’t be able to let everyone rot.
  • Now that the passengers are aware of the journey’s length and the food situations, I imagine we’ll get several characters making desperate heel-turns. The first season wasn’t afraid to kill people off — I think this one might sacrifice a couple of lives to up the stakes sooner rather than later.
