The big day is finally here! Season five of the hit reality series Bringing Up Bates premieres on UP tonight. The hour-long episode starts at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

Come back to the blog right after the show for our recap. Are you looking forward to seeing what the supersized Bates family has been up to?

  1. So I went to iTunes to purchase the new season pass, like I have the past few seasons, and there is no Season 5 available.... It also isn't available on Amazon ... and season 5 isn't available on the Up Channel subscription on Amazon Fire Stick television either... any word on how it will be available to watch for those who do not have UPTV?

    1. Hi Shannon,

      The episode should be available for purchase soon. It likely won't be uploaded to Amazon Fire Stick until the end of the season, but we will keep you posted.

  2. I really wish there was a way to watch seasons 4 and 5 from outside the states. BUB isn't available on amazon or iTunes in the uk. i loved watching season 1-3 and enjoyed reading the recaps for 4 an 5.
