Carpool Karaoke: The Series is driving full force into Apple TV+.

As reported by Deadline, Apple is reviving the Emmy Award-winning series for a fifth season that will now live on Apple TV+ instead of Apple Music. The existing seasons will be available across both services.

Apple Music landed the project in a bidding situation in 2016, ahead of the formation of Apple's Worldwide Video Programming division and the launch of Apple TV+ in November 2019. The existing four seasons of Carpool Karaoke: The Series remain available on the Apple TV app and Apple Music.

They will migrate to their new home on Apple TV+ along with the new, fifth season when it premieres. The Carpool Karaoke franchise, including the Apple series and the Late Late Show segment, have been on hiatus since the start of the pandemic, with efforts underway to safely return them to production.

Each episode of the series features a different group of stars across the entertainment spectrum including film, television, sports, music, and pop culture. Each group belts out popular music while also getting into a variety of other antics on their road trip.

The series has picked up Emmy Awards for both Outstanding Short Form Variety Series and Outstanding Short Form Comedy, Drama or Variety Series.

Season 4 features celebrity pairings including Maya Rudolph and Haim; Keegan-Michael Key and Rob Gronkowski; Patricia Arquette and David Arquette; and, the Sharks of Shark Tank. The series has also featured A-listr pairings such as LeBron James and James Corden; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson; the cast of Stranger Things; and more.

It's currently unclear when the fifth season of Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple TV+.
