Fox has announced that The Great North is coming back for a fifth season. The pickup comes ahead of this Sunday's Season 4 finale, which will bring the animated comedy to the 70-episode mark.

The half-hour series follows a single father living in Alaska with his quirky bunch of kids. He does his best to keep them close, but the artistic dreams of his only daughter, Judy, lead her away from the family's fishing boat and into the big lights of the local mall. With the kids' mom not being in the picture, Judy looks for guidance from her new boss as well as her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette, who appears to her in the Northern Lights.

Look for Season 5 of The Great North as a midseason entry during the 2024-2025 television season.
