This year couldn’t be worse. Recently news broke out that Haikyuu!! season 4 would be delayed, owing to the pandemic. The fans were naturally heartbroken to learn that and wondered if Season 5 would at all come to Netflix. For those of you who don’t know, Haikyuu!! is a popular anime series that is produced by the Japanese animation studio Production I.G. It is based on the adaptation from the shonen manga series. The story focuses on a high school volleyball player whose name is Shoyo Hinata.
Haikyuu!! first three seasons released in 2014, 2015, and 2016 respectively. The fourth season was a little bit complicated. Season 4 was split-cour production. With the first set of episodes being released in early-2020, the next set was to come out later in 2020. But since the pandemic has laid all plans to dust, there’s a lot of speculation happening.
Haikyuu!! season 5: Release Date
Recently, it was announced by the makers that the second part of Haikyuu!! season 4 would be delayed. That is due to the fact that logistics have to be taken care of before the season comes out at all. As of now, fans are concerned whether season 5 will release for over a year, or not. The production I.G. has officially announced that the popular volleyball anime will be returning in 2020. Haikyuu!! Episode 14 will be released as the second part of a split-cour anime.
While the renewal of Season 5 of Haikyuu!! was confirmed. Fans of the anime were relieved to hear that news. But viewers on UK/US Netflix will have to wait a little bit longer to see the fifth season. That is because seasons 3 and 4 yet to be released on the platform of Netflix in the UK/US. For now, there is no information when season 3 and 4 of Haikyuu!! will come to UK/US Netflix.
It was recently announced that the second part of season 4 was initially due for release in July 2020. It should be no guesswork to say that that was delayed due to the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus pandemic. Die-hard fans of the anime predict that the second part of season 4 will be released by October 2020. Hopefully, we can expect season 5 around the same time next year. Haikyuu!!
