Season 5 is the fifth season of Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). It premiered with "Fathers and Sons" on January 9, 1994, and ended with "The Minister's Wife" on March 27, 1994.


Sara has blossomed into an independent and self-assured young lady, but one that still has a penchant for trouble. Now a fully-integrated member of Avonlea society, she begins to think about the day she must leave the security of her new home.

Felix lashes out against his father and rejects the notion of becoming a farmer. Hetty turns 50, but the celebration is soured when her writing contract is cancelled and she must endure a risky operation.

A visiting politician offers Alec an opportunity to run for office, but Alec questions the politician's shady dealings. Jasper and Olivia purchase the cannery and apply modern ideas to improve efficiency. Cecily falls ill with tuberculosis and Janet must make a difficult decision whether to send her to a sanitarium.

Once again, the stories in this volume range from uproariously funny to poignantly emotional.
