Haikyu!!, an anime that single-handedly increased the number of volleyball players in Japanese schools, now awaits a new season!
Season 5 of Haikyuu is one of the most anticipated sports anime installments after its fourth season ended in December 2020. The show hasn’t been renewed yet, but we’re sure it will get an official announcement soon.
This sports anime caught many eyes with its excellent theme and long drawn out volleyball matches, deep characterizations of a whole core of interesting characters and its strive to reach the highest level of volleyball.
The finale of Season 4, showed how the Karasuno boys reacted to their surprise victory against the formidable Inarizaki. With their hopes help high they look forward for new challenges ahead.
1. Season 2 Release Date
Season 5 of Haikyuu is yet to receive an official confirmation. However, the anime could return in Fall 2021 or early 2022.
Season 4 was released in two cours, one from January to April 2020, and the other from October to December 2020. We can expect the same to happen for Season 5 as well.
Though there is no information regarding another season, it is safe to assume that Haikyuu!! will return with Season 5.
With all the excitement around the well-made anime, stage-plays and spin off manga, the manga is sure to get completely adapted.
Haikyuu!! has already made a name for itself as one of the most popular sports anime worldwide.
2. What To Expect From Season 2
Season 4 of Haikyu!! To The Top ends at volume 33, chapter 292 of the manga. Season 5 will continue to be adapted from chapter 293 onwards.
If Season 5 comes in two cours, we can expect the first cour to cover the Garbage Dump match between Nekoma vs. Karasuno in 13 episodes.
As it is a common plot element, we might get more backstories of the new cast through various flashbacks.
In the second cour we might get to see Hinata meet his idol, who started it all for him. Lets all hope Season 5 bring back the amazing animation that Season 4 Part 2 couldn’t achieved.
