- Followed by Season Six
- Season Five was the show's first season on the WB network (having been on ABC previously), this is one reason for the many cast and staff changes.
- Originally, starting with this season, the show was to be redubbed as just Sabrina, since technically Sabrina was no longer a teenager. However, Archie Comics, which owns the rights to the Sabrina character, prohibited the show from changing the title. However, for marketing purposes, the WB called the show Sabrina or Sabrina Goes to College in most advertisements.
- Sabrina's look changes gradually but drastically over the course of the season. Most notably her hair: starting off strawberry blonde and finishing auburn. This is the only season where Sabrina's hair isn't her usual golden blonde.
- This and the following seasons received the lowest ratings of the series, with the ranking going from 57th on the fourth seasons to 146th in the seventh and last season. While also the (estimated) numbers of viewers dropping from 10.2 millions to 3 millions on the said seasons, respectively.
