On 8 December 2015 it was confirmed via Kemp's official Twitter account that Extreme World would return for a fifth series, with filming beginning in the summer of 2015. Filming continued through to December, before taking a three-week break over the Christmas period. Filming restarted in January 2016. Filming once again broke in April 2016, due to Kemp filming scenes for his brief return to EastEnders. Filming on the series finished in May 2016. A sixth series has since been confirmed for broadcast in 2017, beginning with a special feature-length episode, “Libya's Migrant Hell”, on 21 February 2017. However, the sixth series of Extreme World will be the last, with Sky1 having axed the series on 9 February 2017 to “make way for drama and comedy”, as part of the channel's shift away from “commissioning factual entertainment.”
