The Circle (also referred to as The Circle US to distinguish it from other international versions) is a Netflix reality competition series created by Studio Lambert and Motion Content Group that premiered in January 2020. It is based on the same-named British television series. As part of a partnership between Netflix and All3Media, different versions of The Circle were released in France and Brazil in addition to the American version.
The series touts itself as a social media game, with the premise that “in The Circle, anyone maybe anyone.” In terms of format, it’s been compared to Big Brother and Catfish, as well as the Black Mirror episode “Nosedive” with the rating concept.

In August 2021, The Circle was renewed for a fourth and five seasons. The fourth season will premiere in May 2022, while the fifth season will follow suit later in 2022.
Like the first four seasons, the new season could have 12 or 13 episodes. The rest of the details should be revealed after Season 4 of Netflix is released.
The Cast and The Circle Format
The players in The Circle are assigned to separate apartments in the same building. They are kept segregated from the outside world and from each other, and they connect with one another via text on a social networking program that allows them to depict themselves in whatever way they like.
Players can choose to market themselves to other players as a different personality, a strategy known as catfishing. Each competitor must rate every other contestant from first to last, and their average ratings are given to the entire group in order of highest to lowest. The ones with the greatest ratings become influencers, while those with lower ratings are at risk of being deleted.
The blocking method has a few wrinkles, such as blocking the lowest-rated players right away, keeping the identity of the influencers a secret, or blocking multiple players at once. Blocked players must immediately pack their belongings and leave the residences, although they are given the opportunity to meet and chat with one active player of their choice in person. A video message is given to the other players the day following blocking to reveal whether the blocked player was real or a catfish.
Michelle Buteau is likely to return as the host in the fifth season, but the producers have yet to divulge any other information regarding the new season.
Story from Season 5 of The Circle
A group of people from various parts of the country have been confined to an apartment. They won’t be able to see each other until the finish of the game. The players are not allowed to reveal they’re true identities on the reality game program. At the same time, they can speak with one another using an app created specifically for the show.
They can only communicate and send photos, and they must deceive their opponents by altering their looks. The participants must rate them based on their appearance, and the individual who receives the lowest number of points must vacate the flat. Similarly, the last person standing will be declared the winner and will receive a cash prize of $150,000.
Where Can I Watch Season 5 of The Circle?
