The fifth season began on September 30, 2002 with the first episode, "Jeremy loves Lisa," and ended on May 19, 2003 with "Keit the Veggies." David Mirkin was the show runner through most of the season's episodes. James Woods and Robert Stainton were show runners of two episodes, "Jeremy loves Lisa" and "Creaps of the Vortex," which had been produced for the previous season. Consequently, they have Season 4's production code, 3THNXX, rather than Season 5's, with 10PLSXX.

The season received eight awards nominations. It won an Annie Award for "Best Animated Television Production", an Environmental Media Award for "Best Television Episodic Comedy" for "Brick Up Your Ears," a Genesis Award for "Best Television Comedy Series". Gree G. earned a nomination for "Best Individual Achievement for Creative Supervision in the Field of Animation", Alf Clausen and Greg Daniels received a nomination in the "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics" category for the song "The Death Returns", a song from "Sad, Sad Lisa." Clausen had another nomination for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music Composition for a Series (Dramatic Underscore)" for the episode "Creaps of the Vortex" and the series was nominated for a Saturn Award for "Best Genre Television Series." The producers again tried to submit episodes for "Outstanding Comedy Series" category rather than the "Outstanding Animated Program" as they had previously done, but were still not nominated.

All 22 episodes of Season 5 including extras were released on DVD on December 21, 2006 in Region 1, March 21, 2007 in Region 2 and March 23, 2007 in Region 4.
