However, the latest sources indicate that there will only be five episodes. It is probable that Netflix has divided the number of episodes into two seasons, indicating a sixth season may already be in the works.
The Storyline of Somebody Feed Phil
Initially, everyone felt Phil was a strange individual. He traveled extensively over the world but never visited local museums or spent all of his time on the beach. Instead, he gathered information about traditional cuisines from other nations.
He like his job since he was compensated for eating and smiling on television. Obviously, Phil is a highly fascinating individual, therefore he always laughed and told entertaining anecdotes during meals. Regardless of where he was, he always knew where to locate the best local cuisine. When viewing Phil’s exploits, onlookers are always drooling.
He is always trying something new and sharing his discoveries with others. Some dishes appear repulsive, but you must simply acquire a taste for them. Different philosophies favor different snacks and dinners.
The Release Date for Season 5 of Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix
On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET, all episodes of the fifth season will be simultaneously accessible for streaming on Netflix. If you live outside the United States, you can reference this guide to determine when the season changes in your area.
Somebody Feed Phil is a must-watch if you enjoy travel shows or shows about preparing and sharing meals with loved ones. It is pleasant and family-friendly, with each episode seeming like a conversation with an old friend.
Unfortunately, Phil’s parents have recently gone away, thus they will not be a part of the current season. This is terrible, as the interaction between Phil and his parents was always entertaining to watch. Nonetheless, we are eager to see what this season has in store and are confident that their presence will be felt!
Happy Season 5 people! These are some of the folks I’m so lucky and grateful to work with (even Richard). Thanks to everybody on the show, @netflix, @zpzproduction, and all you very very nice people for watching. As Warren Zevon said, “Enjoy every sandwich”. ♥️ #somebodyfeedphil pic.twitter.com/6ASu9bR9eI

What Destinations Will Phil Rosenthal Visit in the Fifth Season?
Rosenthal stated in a previous interview with The Wrap that he had not yet visited several locations on the series.
When asked about his travels, Rosenthal revealed that he hasn’t traveled to the following countries: India; Australia; New Zealand; China; Moscow; and several major American cities. Obviously, there are many more places he has yet to see that are not on this list, so the options are unlimited.
Looking at major cities throughout the world, Rosenthal may travel to South American cities like Sao Paulo, Brazil, or Peru’s Lima, Peru; to Asian cities like Tokyo, Japan; the Philippine capital of Manila, Philippines; or to European cities like Amsterdam, The Netherlands, or Berlin, Germany.
Rosenthal told Fine Dining Lovers in March 2021 that he “can’t wait to go to Kyoto,” so if there is a fifth season of Somebody Feed Phil, Kyoto could be on the itinerary.
With COVID-19 restrictions still in effect, another possibility for the series would be to confine travel to the United States, as it is currently the most convenient.
In the series, Rosenthal has already visited cities like New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. And as Rosenthal stated in a recent interview, “you can get a wonderful meal just about everywhere.”
We don’t have any official trailer for this season.
