The fifth season of Arby 'n' the Chief was first officially announced on January 3rd, 2011 on Jon Graham's blog, and premiered on January 22nd with the release of the episode "House of Cards".

The season marked a major shift in the series' style and mood; from a lighthearted comedy consisting of mostly self-contained episodes, it transformed into a more action-driven show with a season-long storyline, focusing on realism and character development. The show earned a new pixel art title card based on the one used in the previous season, and featured original electronic tracks by Jon Graham more prominently.


Arbiter and Master Chief continue doing their daily activities, and begin sharing it with their new friend Greg, to Arbiter's happiness and Chief's weird dismay. But things also begin change when Arbiter reunites with Claire, his long time love interest, and hears about her getting married to Trent Donnovich, who appears as the season's main antagonist. When both Arbiter and Chief start to discover something sinister about Trent, it is up to them to stop Claire from making a fatal mistake marrying him.
