It is a very exciting time for the Haikyuu anime series fans because as it turns out that the countdown for Haikyuu Season 5 release date has already started. The Haikyuu Season 5 anime is already in production, and the Haikyuu Season 5 announcement will officially be done in August 2022. The Haikyuu voice actor Kaito Ishikawa, who played one of the Haikyuu characters, Tobio Kageyama, revealed in a tweet on 13th August 2022, that he is equally stoked and emotionally disturbed because he might have to say goodbye to the character he portrays. So, from this, we can say that Season 5 of Haikyuu will be its terminal season.
We have come across this information on Twitter, where @WSJ_manga noticed a new article published on a Japanese website named Collabo Cafe. This article was hinting at the Season 5 of Haikyuu release date. It also had some information about the collaboration between Haikyuu and the Cookpad Live cooking app. This article also revealed that they are curating a ‘Karasuno vs Nekoma’ – themed menu.
The trailer of the Haikyuu anime series features some of the extremely important pictures from the original Haikyuu manga. It shows the last arc that takes place right after the time skip in the series.
When is Haikyuu Season 5 Coming Out?
Well, if your question is ‘when is season five of Haikyuu coming out?’, then it can be said that the official release announcement of Haikyuu Season 5 anime is expected on Haikyuu Day itself. Haikyuu Day takes place on the 9th of August, every year. However, if the makers don’t officially announce the Haikyuu Season 5 release date on Haikyuu day, then the announcement may get postponed until Jump Festa which takes place in the month of December every year. It is important to note that the release of Haikyuu Season 4 was also announced in Jump Festa.
According to an update that took place on 8 August 2022, the official website of Haikyuu has started a mysterious countdown which is supposed to end on 12th august. Fans are anticipating that the Haikyuu Season five release date will be officially announced when this countdown ends.
However, there was another update that took place on 13 August 2022, revealing that 2 movies are also being made on Haikyuu. But this update did not reveal any information about season 5 of Haikyuu. This one revealed that the remaining Haikyuu manga chapters will be covered in the upcoming films. So it can be said that there will be no season 5 of Haikyuu, and sadly, there will be no Haikyuu season 5 trailer.
