From a media release:
Prairie Dog Film + Television announces that the fifth and final season of the award-winning prime time drama Blackstone will feature the characters moving towards hope, healing and retribution – and will conclude with a dramatic finale on Dec. 22. Blackstone season five (8 x 60’) airs Tuesdays starting November 3 on Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) (check below for exact times per region).
In the new season of Blackstone, there is hope in the midst of adversity as the Blackstone First Nation strives toward a better life by building a stronger community. Panicked and grief-stricken, the Stoneys fight for the authorities to expand the search for Wendy. Meanwhile, Andy tries to work his usual channels to stay out of jail. Chief Victor’s lack of leadership has left the Blackstone community struggling. Leona gets close to a foster child, but is left seeking justice when tragedy strikes. A sober Gail searches for a new identity and a new path while coping with Wilma’s failing health. Smokey moves back to Blackstone to serve the community, and Daryl makes a business decision that pulls him and Gina deeper into a criminal world.
Blackstone airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on APTN HD and APTN East starting Nov. 3; Tuesdays at 10 p.m. MT on APTN West starting Nov. 3, and Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. CT on APTN North starting Nov. 7.
