Steven Universe Will Have A Batch Of New Episodes Starting This December

The new arc, which is titled Steven Universe: Diamond Days will have a total of five episodes. All of the episodes will be released weekly after December 17 at 7:30p ET. It is expected that the mini-arc will air its final episode on January 21 next year. Each episode will have a new original song.
“Legs From Here To Homeworld” ended up with a cliffhanger when Gems, Blue, Yellow, and the Crystal Gems travel to Homeworld to seek White Diamond’s help. It can be remembered that Blue and Yellow Diamond’s attack on Earth corrupted the other Gems instead of destroying them. It seems like the five-episode arc will be loaded with good stuff.
Meanwhile, fans are wondering if there would be a Steven Universe season 6 in the future. Voice actor Leisha Medina said in reply to a fan earlier that the production for the next season has been started. Cartoon Network Instagram confirmed the renewal of the show later on.
