Day 5 is a drama web-series produced by Rooster Teeth.

The series is written by Matt Hullum, Burnie Burns, and Joel Heyman with assistance from Miles Luna and Chris Demarais, and directed by Josh Flanagan.

Day 5 was in the pipeline for over 3 years. It was mentioned on podcasts in early 2012, then remained silent for about a year. On Rooster Teeth Podcast 205, Burnie mentioned that Rooster Teeth is filming Day 5, but other productions are taking its place for now (such as Immersion Season 2).

Rooster Teeth filmed a scene for Day 5 at RTX 2012, which was about a busy town centre with hundreds of pedestrians shopping and socializing. Joel Heyman was in-character walking amongst everyone, then all of a sudden everyone was lying down either sleeping or dead. This was all that was filmed and the extras (RTX Attendees) then went back to the convention.

On June 16, 2014, Burnie Burns confirmed on Twitter that principal photography for Day 5 had been completed. The first teaser for the show was revealed before the worldwide screenings of Lazer Team. As of March 14, 2016, Day 5 production had officially begun, with Josh Flanagan posting regular updates on his Twitter profile. In May 2016, a trailer was released, revealing that Day 5 premieres on June 19, 2016 exclusively for FIRST Members.

The first episode was released for FIRST Members, and the general public on both the Rooster Teeth Website and YouTube, with all subsequent episodes having FIRST Member exclusivity.
