Back by popular demand? Possibly! Investigation Discovery has ordered a fifth episode of Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV. The docuseries details the reality of what goes on behind the scenes at some of the most popular shows for kids. Specifically, Quiet on Set focuses on Nickelodeon and the allegations of abuse, sexism, and racism.

The biggest and most shocking reveal from the ID docuseries, is Drake Bell's story. The actor, who starred in All That and Drake & Josh, shares his story for the first time. Bell reveals that he is the "John Doe" who reported the horrifying abuse he suffered at the hands of his former dialogue coach, Brian Peck.

We'd like to warn you, Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV can be triggering. If you have yet to watch it, read a few reviews about it before diving in.

Now, Quiet on Set only features four episodes. After episode 4 dropped, fans took to Google to search for episode 5 details, such as when it would drop. Unfortunately, fans were left disappointed by the fact that Quiet on Set is only a 4-part docuseries. That is, until now.

It makes sense why a fifth episode has been ordered. The docuseries is beyond shocking, especially for millennials who grew up watching Nickelodeon. Simply put, we have so many questions! Did anyone know about what Drake Bell was going through? Those who knew nothing about it, how did they react? Quiet on Set episode 5 is hoping to give us closure by providing answers and updates.

On Sunday, April 7, Investigation Discovery will air Breaking the Silence at 8 p.m. ET. This episode will feature former Nickelodeon stars (including Drake Bell, once again) share their stories and reactions after watching the first four episodes.

As reported by Deadline, Breaking the Silence will dig deeper into the allegations and reveals from the first four episodes. Here's the statement from Jason Sarlanis, President at ID:
