Sidestepping the traditional PR release, Animal Planet execs Majorie Kaplan and Jason Carey took to Facebook today to announce the fifth season of Whale Wars via video.

OMG, how Gen-Y of them!

In the short announcement, interspersed with clips from previous seasons, Kaplan and Carey reveal what we already knew – that camera crews are back on board the SSCS vessels and Summer 2012 will kick off season five.

Back in November, Captain Paul Watson officially spilled the beans on season five – as well as a number of Sea Shepherd-themed specials yet to be announced by AP.

“There will be an animal planet film crew on operation divine wind on all three ships,” he wrote on Facebook. “We will be looking at between ten and 12 episodes. There will also be a five episode series on whale wars – the faeroe islands. In addition there will be two sea shepherd episodes on the med tuna campaign and two episodes on the namibian fur seal campaign.”

“In total we are looking at 19 or 21 weekly sea shepherd episodes for 2012. As the show enters its fifth season, whale wars remains the number one watched show on the animal planet network.”
