VENICE THE SERIES Season 5 Bows With First Episode & Reminds Us Why It Set The Bar For Web Series!

Crystal Chappell and her Open Book Productions released this weekend the first episode of the highly-anticipated fifth and final season of the web series that started it all, Venice the Series! 

And Chappell brings with her, for this final set of episodes, a stellar cast that fans of daytime know very well.  It has been a few years since Venice picked up the story in the massive cliffhanger of season 4; which saw Ani (Jessica Leccia) and Lara (Nadia Bjorlin) set to wed, while Gina (Chappell) wanted to stop it.  But in a series of miscues, Gina had sent a letter to Ani professing her feelings, but Ani never received it.  Lara interecepted it, so Gina thought Ani knew of her feelings and chose to move on entirely with Lara.  Cue Season 5 episode 1 …  fans of the series will find out what happens when the truth comes out!

The fifth season of Venice was crowdfunded by many in the series amazing fan base, who have stood with Chappell and her on-screen love interest, Jessica Leccia, since the compelling Otalia storyline on Guiding Light made them household names in the LGBT community.

In season 5 of Venice, Chappell, Leccia, and Bjorlin are joined by: Hillary B. Smith (Guya), Tina Sloan (Katherine) Michael Sabatino (Alan), Shawn Christian (Brandon, Harrison White (Jamie), Wes Ramsey (Van), Jordan Clarke (The Colonel) and now in the role of Logan (originally played by Judi Evans) is Cady McClain (who also shares directing duties with Chappell in season 5), in the role of Richard (originally played by Peter Reckell) is GL favorite Robert Newman, and in the role of Jake (originally played by Christian LeBlanc), Michael Corbett has taken on the role.  Daytime fans remember Corbett as the dastardly David Kimbell on Y&R.

To subscribe to Venice the Series season 5 click here which will take you to the Venice the Series website store, and you will be set for the season.   Crystal Chappell has also now made available the first episode of season five free.  You can watch it below!

One thing is for certain, even with the time away till season five was launched, once you see the first episode of the new season, for production values, musical scores and songs that work so well within the themes of the show, and more, Venice is still at the top of their game.  It reminds us all why Crystal Chappell was groundbreaking and in the front of lines of digital dramas, before they sprouted up everywhere.

Venice: the Series has continued to be an incredible web series, and I’m so happy it’s back for its fifth season. It also proves to me that Crystal is meant to be back on daytime television, where she rightfully belongs!

I have watched and supported Venice since day 1 and after only two episodes in, I can say that season 5 is the best one yet. It’s looks gorgeous, the acting is not overdone, the dialogue is crisp and I can’t get enough. Ms. Chappell has outdone herself.

I haven’t watched Venice. I did watch her other series, The Grove. I am glad Crystal and Venice continue to do well. Web series come and go, but Venice appears to be a keeper!
