Release Expectations

Analyzing past release dates Season 3 of “The Family Business” premiered on October 14, 2021, while Season 4 came out on October 27, 2022, with a one-year gap between them. Season 5’s intended release was likely set for October 2023 but the Hollywood actors’ and writers’ strikes caused a delay.
