Release Date of #MakoMermaids S5: To be announced

Mako Mermaids is an Australian children’s live action series, and the spin-off sequel to the international hit H2O: Just Add Water. The series premiered its first season on July 26, 2013. Originally titled Mako: Island of Secrets the series is produced by Johnathan M Shiff (Scooter: Secret Agent and H2O: Just Add Water) in association with Network Ten and Nickelodeon, exclusively for the premiere streaming service Netflix. In a bid to ramp up its programming for children, Netflix took on MM hoping to draw a larger adolescent audience to their service. The series stars Chai Romruen (We Were Tomorrow and Thicker Than Water) as Zac Blakely, Lucy Fry (Vampire Academy and Alien Surf Girl) as Lyla, Ivy Latimer (Me and My Monsters and Accidents Happen) as Nixie, and Amy Ruffle (Border Protection Squad) as Sirena.

#MM follows the adventures of Zac Blakely, who when visiting the island of Mako comes in contact with the magical waters of the moon pool. It is then that he learns of his underwater origins and is transformed into a merman. Lyla, Nixie and Sirena are the mermaid protectors of the island, and when Zac is transformed, and learns of his ability to manipulate and control water, they are certain that there will be trouble. But when Zac later falls into the water, it is revealed he also can turn into a merman. After the three girls are banished from their home, because they let Zac become a merman, they venture onto land to see what living among humans might be like. As they occasional return to Mako Island, the mermaids learn more and more about the powers that the island holds. Nixie and Lyla, deciding that they are going to find a new home, leave Sirena at Mako. It is there that she joins up with two other mermaids as they continue to relieve Zac of his powers. Also introduced is Weilan, a Chinese mermaid who came to Mako seeking refuge and safety from a magic water dragon. Now the group has to come up with a plan to defeat the water dragon in order to protect their beloved home.

#MakoMermaids shows with a respectable rating of 7.3 out of 10 on the IMDB site and an average audience score of 83% on Rotten Tomatoes. The viewers have mixed feelings on the series, and their comments range from one end of the spectrum to the other. For the most part, even though they expect it to be like its predecessor H20: Just Add Water, they are pleased with it anyways. They admit it is pretty good in its own right, and that they enjoy the series. Others feel that, unlike H20, it is more childish and aimed at a younger audience. Yet others thought the first season was tremendous, but those that followed did not hold up. The critics are pretty much in line with the viewers, and feel that had the series not had the H2O lead in that it did, that it most assuredly would not have held on as long as it has. They attribute its longevity to the fans from the previous series migrating over to this one.

#MakoMermaids aired its final episode of its sixteen episode fourth season. As of this writing the series is showing as returning in the 2016/2017 season, but not much of anything else. Further checking shows that the date and time for its return is listed as to be announced, and the series is not showing as even slated on the Netflix schedule. It is of note that a movie was rumored to be in the works, to be released after season three, but nothing else could be found on the project.

Is a season five a possibility for this series? Will they have to bring in a new cast, seeing as the one that they currently have is getting

older, thus too “adult” in appearance? Is there possibility, in your opinion, that they may introduce more mermen? Does the prospect of a movie, based on the series, seem like a viable idea and money maker?

I think that there should definitely be a season 5 because now that narissa is there the dragon is gone so narissa should be able to give evie her tail back because she was the dragon and she took it away and they said she was an extraordinary mermaid with amazing powers so I think there should be a season 5 and narissa should be able to give back evies tail

We so want Mako Mermaids to do Season 5, it’s literally my daughter’s favourite programme and I love watching it too which I can’t say about any other children’s TV programme. We’ve bonded over this programme. We are now watching all the series for a second time so need more episodes.
