BUNK’D season 5 has officially started premiering from January 15th @ 7:30 pm ET/PT on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW
BUNK’D has returned for a fifth season on Disney Channel this Friday, and a major OG cast member will be returning in it’s premiere episode. And it’s none other than Peyton List.
The 22-year-old star will be returning to play Emma Ross who returns to camp Kikiwaka to meet her old pals such as the camp’s owner and director Lou (Miranda May), counselors Ava (Shelby Simmons), and Noah (Israel Johnson) as well as returning campers Destiny (Mallory James Mahoney), Matteo (Raphael Alejandro) and Finn (Will Buie Jr).
About returning for the role
During a zoom interview with Celeb Secrets, Peyton talks about how she returned, saying Disney reached out to her during quarantine and asked her if she can guest star. She spoke about her excitement about reuniting with the whole team, such as the writers, crew and the cast members. But she mainly wanted to see Miranda and said that she didn’t even step into her own dressing room, but instead was in Miranda’s room and was catching up on everything the whole time.
Season 5 of BUNK’D will be introducing a new character – Parker Preston, played by Zombies 2 actor Trevor Tordjman, who poses as an antagonist for Lou after he shows up claiming part-ownership of the camp and tries to implement his over-the-top ideas, thereby causing trouble for everyone.
As for the other members, Destiny’s newfound love for the environment makes her a more responsible person, Matteo wows the others with his scientific expertise and Finn keeps jumping from one adventure to the next. Ava and Noah are on their second year as counsellors, but gets caught off guard when Lou asks them to supervise the new “PeeWeeWaka” day campers, who are all 8-year-olds and hard to contain.
