i know its VERY unexpected but the 5th episode of Season 5 is set to be the last of this series. This is a direct message to the actual fans of the show all over the world.
For over 4 years now I've run this series trying my best to bring a reality/teen drama to the internet & local television. After 5 seasons despite the number of episodes, i think The Suburbs has run its course. Its bittersweet but i feel its the right time. I myself record, edit, etc. so its not possible for me to be around all of the cast members at all times. Now you could be saying "why cancel it? just keep it going" BUT once again..all good things come to an end and i think its time to move forward with my projects, and my time. On top of all of that alot of the cast isn't really 'connected' anymore..so the 'group of friends' is more like a 'group of people who are on a show together and have nothing to talk about'. Nobody's dead, nobody got fired (cause their not paid), but everybody has or is moving on in their own way. I think its time to move forward and say goodbye to 'The Suburbs'. In a whole the suburbs was the love story of Rana & Vincent and the subplots of a group of friends in high school living day to day, real arguments, real issues, and real teens, but those stories are over & done with.
Now to bring you up to date, the current cast is VERY busy or simply cant find the time to record and or no longer WANTS to record...so the series finale brings all of the current storylines to a proper close. What happens next?...A SPIN OFF ..maybe one or two? i dont know but in time i will reveal who the spin off(s) are about & what its about and its partially up to you guys & what you want to see! so quick question...Who would you rather see a spin off of? Let me know!
This is not the last of Charles Plummer Productions. I have more projects in the works and im sure you'll be seeing more of your favorites & make some more favorites in the spin off. This is most likely not the last time you'll see the cast of The Suburbs just see it as the end of the beginning.

Aaron & Phylicia meet to catch up. Phylicia wants to know if Aaron knows his ex girlfriend (Jenny) is pregnant? He said he knows and he has nothing to do with that, nor any other pregnancies or anything to do with his ex Karisma, whom he tells Phylicia about too. It seems Aarons ready for a relationship, a real one but Rana, Danae, and Phylicia beg to differ.
After months of off camera problems, Renan and Angiee ended their friendship. After about a week or so Renan goes over to Rana's to hang out. She asks him if its sunk in that theyre not friends anymore, he says hes getting used to it, even though its hard. He then goes on to say she chose to not be his friend and made things different and Rana adds in that maybe its better off that way.
Due to Renan and Angiee's immature issue and other events, Rana thinks that its time to be a little more adult and see Vincent after their breakup last year. She lets him know that alot of her friends are losing their friendships, and she doesn't want that for them since they've known each other for so long. Vincent respects her wishes and thanks her for coming to see him. The two agree to be cordial with each other, at least, so there's no animosity anymore. Rana then wonders how it would be if she ever got back with Vincent.
What do you think Rana should do? Take Vincent back or stay single?

Right after the blow out with Danae, Renan and Angiee walk back to their car. Angiee tells him that she wasnt going to make herself look stupid and fight her on camera. Renan is just glad that she walked away before things got worse.
At Danaes house, she updates her friend Kaila on the situation with Angiee & Renan. She simply feels like there's no respect coming from either of them. She goes on about how its weird that Kaila has known her for a shorter amount of time and respects her wishes to be called by Danae. Kaila says to let them live in the past and move forward.
Jenny isn't so happy with the way everybody reacted to her being pregnant and reminds them she can switch back to the old reckless Jenny, if they want. She goes on about how she runs stuff in the house. Blessing makes a guest appearance to give her opinion on Jenny, then jenny fills us in on how it would be being a mother, and how she will succeed.
Then it switches over to Aaron talking about his ex "fling" Karisma (one of Jennys old friends) and then flashes back to a month ago when her & Aaron were having one of their arguments over another girl texting him (despite them not being "together").
Renans busy on the computer when he realizes Danae is still running her mouth (on Facebook) and he tells Angiee. They go over again how idiotic it is to be arguing over this and holding grudges. Angiee and Renan then jokingly come to terms about calling her Danae now.
Another flashback to when Aaron broke things off for good with Karisma. She felt she overreacted but was sorry. Aaron was just ready to move on from her and the drama.

Last year was a turning point for the cast. Rana & Vincent ended their 3 year relationship, and she ended her friendship with Dontreis. Now Rana's beginning college and wont be around as much as she used to. Since Angiee is no longer moving shes been focusing on her music & make-up career. Renan has been working on his portfolio & modeling. Aaron is back in town and so is Jenny, but shes carrying a little extra baggage than before. Everything's been mellow but little does everybody know..their friendship with Danae is about to change.
Danae meets up with Aaron for the first time since hes been back in town and she updates him. Then she mentions how shes going to hang out with Renan and Angiee and catch up because last shes heard Angiee is no longer moving. She then insists that Aaron stick around this time around.
Over at Jenny's place, we see that shes now 7 months pregnant. She gives us an update on her life and how shes adapting to being pregnant and soon, a mother. She then wonders what everyone thinks about her being pregnant. And everyone gives their opinion.
When Danae meets up with Angiee & Renan to catch up she brings a friend Lacey. Angiee starts off by letitng Danae know that she was late, and Renan agrees that thats the nonchalant 'Britney' they know. Lacey asks whos Britney because Lacey knows of Danae as Danae. Danae then pulls Renan & Angiee aside to give them another lecture on calling her Danae. Angiee & Renan think its stupid that she just doesnt go by her birth name, which is in fact Britney. (For years Danae has been called Britney, its her legal name, in recent years she goes by Danae, and everybody isnt used to it still) Danae then goes back and forth with the two about her being called by what she chooses. Then as the argument escalates Danae tried jumping at Angiee but is pulled away in the heat of it all.
Who is right and who is wrong?
