“Haikyuu!!,” with its impeccably animated and drawn-out volleyball matches, shonen-style storylines, and deep characterizations of a slew of interesting characters, has been a popular sports anime since 2014. The series begins with Shy Hinata, a small but fiery middle schooler, becoming enamored with volleyball after watching Karasuno High play on TV, only to discover that no one else at his school is interested in the sport. By the end of his middle school career, he had convinced some of his friends to join him on a team so that they could compete in a tournament. Despite redheaded Hinata’s incredible vertical jump, they suffer a crushing defeat at the hands of Tobio Kageyama and his team, dubbed “The King of the Court.”
Haikyuu Season 5 Release Date
The good news is that there will be a fifth season, but the question is when? This may be disappointing for fans, but Studio Production I.G has not yet provided a release date. Our initial predictions were incorrect, but it appears that the show will premiere sometime during the Fall 2022 season, though we must wait for official confirmation.
An official release date (or, at the very least, a release window) will most likely be revealed in August 2022, during the special 10th-anniversary event. Because the anime cast members are expected to attend the event, we can expect an official announcement about the fifth season as well.

Season 5 Plot: What Can Fans Expect From Season 5?
Season 4 ended on a major cliffhanger, leaving many fans on social media practically begging for season 5. Season 5 will naturally follow the aftermath of the game and next week’s thrilling match against Nekoma High.
Karasuno and Nekoma will fight in Chapter 293, titled “Battle At The Garbage Dump.” This is the first time the two teams have faced off in a real game. It also talks about Coach Ukai and Coach Nekomata’s rivalry in flashback form, showing how they used to fight. Volleyball players are known as “Little Giants,” and if the manga is to be believed, Hinata may meet one of them in the fifth episode of season 5.
This means that season 5 will pick up where season 4 left off in the manga. The fourth season of Haikyuu!! concludes with chapter 292 out of 402 in the manga. This suggests that a fifth season is not out of the question. The story shifts to a different sport and location, but there is still plenty to see in the anime.

Where does Haikyuu Season 4 end?
With Karasuno’s old friends and competitors Nekoma and Fukurodani in attendance, we see Kuroo and Kenma, Bokuto and Akaashi watching Karasuno High take on Inarizaki, which had its own surprises. Hinata has mastered the art of receiving! And has gotten a lot of attention from Miya Atsumu and Hoshiumi Korai, with the latter fueling Hinata’s dreams of becoming the Little Giant even more.
The eliminations for the Nations quarter-finals have become even more intense as new, stronger teams and more mysterious players have appeared on the show. As Karasuno progresses, the members continue to hone their skills in the hopes of winning the Championship.
The content of Haikyuu Season 5 may already be clear to fans of the manga, which ended after an eight-year run in 2020. Yes, the Haikyuu manga has concluded. However, there is still a lot of content to come for the anime. It is safe to say that Haikyuu will not end with Season 5.
With Haikyu Season 4 only beginning with Chapter 207 and stretching up to Chapter 292, there is plenty of content left to adapt – probably for a Haikyu Season 6 as well.
