Season 5 is the fifth season of Steven Universe. There are currently 26 planned episodes in the season. The season began airing on May 29, 2017, with "Stuck Together" as a part of the "Wanted" event.
Friendships are tested as the saga continues in this Emmy-nominated series, created by Rebecca Sugar. The show returns with new adventurous story arcs and specials, in which fans will meet more Gems, spend time with the Diamonds and gain insight into the ever-mysterious Gem Homeworld while the series' titular hero Steven Universe will grow as a leader.
"Off Colors": While Steven and Lars escape, they meet a group of defective Gems hiding from Homeworld.
"Lars' Head": Lars is brought back to life and Steven discovers a new power with amazing results.
It was originally formatted as a single 52-episode season and was going to be called "Season 3B", but was changed for unknown reasons by Cartoon Network, who split the original third season into Season 4 and Season 5.
Rebecca Sugar has confirmed that she has big plans for Season 5 and will be "shooting for the moon" for it.
According to Rebecca Sugar, Season 5's story arc will be a "murder mystery" around uncovering the one responsible for Pink Diamond's death.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2017, Rebecca Sugar has stated that the following plot threads will deal with the fallout of the "Wanted" event.
