Haikyuu Season 5 is taking way longer than fans had hoped for. The volleyball sports anime is one of the most popular series of this genre. And fans are desperate for new announcements from the franchise. However, fresh details are likely to reveal with Jump Festa around the corner. Makers have been silent about any information since its last release in 2020. Season 4 was a huge hit and the next part is definitely under the way. Now, when can we expect a premiere? Here are all the details ahead of Jump Festa 2022.
Haruichi Furudate’s Haikyuu is a Japanese anime series based on a manga of the same name. The show first came in 2014 and has stretched over four seasons since then. The last release was split into two cours. The season aired 25 episodes in total. The anime focuses on Shoyo Hinata, a junior high school student with a passion for volleyball. He joins the school’s team in the hope of learning more. But soon enough, he finds himself as the only member of the club. This leads to Hinata forcing other students’ participation. The series picked up from that.
Haikyuu Season 5: Renewed Or Not?
It’s been two years since Haikyuu Season 4 came to a halt. Since then, fans are eager for the next installment. Jump Festa 2022 will mark the series’ 10th anniversary. So, the event will likely bring many new announcements on the same. However, there is no proper declaration about a renewal. Some fans are even expecting a movie in progress. Considering the amount of source material left to be adapted, two more seasons will likely occur before a final end.
Fans are not to worry since Haikyuu Season 5 will definitely take place in the near future. But the production is getting delayed due to unknown factors. It is to be noted that back in 2020, music producer Yoshiki Kobayashi confirmed the sound recording for Season 5. So it is safe to say that the news is pretty official. Some Redditors even claim if, somehow, the series doesn’t get renewed, a ‘studio battle’ for the rights is might take place.
What Will Be The Plot About?
In the last season, Hinata loses a chance to score a point for his team, for which he receives a warning from Tobio Kageyama. However, Karasuno manages to pull a surprise win against Inarizaki in the end. The match was easily one of the toughest ones the characters have come across. Earning the win, Karasuno qualifies for the third round of the Spring Nationals tournament. The players are to compete in the “Battle at the Garbage Dump” next.
Season 5 might bring Karasuno and Nekoma up against Mujinazaka right the last match. It can also arrive with a brand-new story for the fans. The series features a sense of bond and rivalries among the characters. The protagonist, Hinata, has resolved to restore Karasuno’s reputation and ultimately win the nationals. The new season will be sensational, considering the huge impact the anime has made with its story.
Haikyuu Season 5: Release Date
Till now, no announcements for season 5 have been out. Hence, it is hard to predict a release date at this time. The series will pick up from chapter 292 or 293 of the manga after season 4. So, the makers have a lot of source material to animate. In addition, Jump Festa can bring a Season 5 key visual to the fans. Sports anime enthusiasts might have to wait for the event to take place.
