The Haikyuu Season 5 Probable Cast
The story starts with a middle school kid named “Shoyo Hinata ” getting besotted with volleyball after watching Karasuno High play the enthusiastic sport on tv. Unfortunately, nobody in his school was much interested in the sport, and thus he wasn’t happy about it; later on, by the end of middle school, he convinced some of his friends to build a team and compete in a Volleyball tournament.
With all his efforts and his teammates’ cooperation Hinata could not win the tournament and had a very bad defeat by the “king of the court”, Tobio Kageyama. This defeat put inside him a solid intention to defeat Tobio Kageyama and thus tries his best with his studies and gets admission to Karasuno High. The high school inspired him to play volleyball.
Shoyo Hinata joins the high school volleyball team only to learn that his rival Tobio Kageyama is on the same team, and now they have to play together as a team. The series is built well with emotions and exciting sports moments.
The fans have loved the four seasons of Haikyuu, and the story, along with the introduction of various characters throughout the time, has never failed their expectations from the series.
How did Season 4 End?
The last episode of Haikyuu season 4 was “The Promised Land”, where the second match of Spring Nationals takes place. The match is between Karasuno and Inarizaki High School teams. The episode clarifies that it is one of the most challenging matches Karasuno has ever played.
Inarizaki high school team were able to replicate the exact special quick attack, which was the strong game of Hinata and Kageyama.
Although the match was tiresome and difficult for Karasuno High, they managed to win the game. Season 4 presented the aftermath of the gameplay in the last episode, and the next upcoming match was against Nekoma High school, which is Karasuno’s long-time rival.
The last episode of season 4 aired in December 2020, and since then, there has been no official call for season five. The Haikyuu team has been convicted with delays several times, and season 4 itself aired 4 years after season three ended. Thus, we can always be hopeful for season 5.
When Will Haikyuu Season 5 Come Out?
The first season of Haikyuu was released in 2014, the second in 2015, and the third in 2016. Season 4 of Haikyuu was announced late in 2018, and the production team took more time to release it in 2020.
There has been no official announcement by Production I.G., the production house of Haikyuu. But fans became overwhelmed when the official Haikyuu English Twitter account tweeted a message thanking the anime team for their hard work and then further adding, “looking forward to the contribution”. This tweet indicates there’s going to be next season!
Experts anticipate that the show will take time but will be available by the fall or winter of 2022.4.1
Season 5 of the anime will cover a series of anticipated events. The Karasuno and Nekoma match is one of them. At the end of season 4, we can see Kenma and kuroo talking about their upcoming game. Kenma is also someone who is somewhat of a genius setter, so Hinata knows it is difficult to engage him and get him to be invested in a competition. Hinata promises to give kenma a match he could never forget in his life.
It is also anticipated that the season will focus on Fukurodani and Bokuto’s story. Season 5 will elaborate their playing style, and the story might take twists and turns.
It will be interesting to see Kageyama’s development while helping Hinata break out of the cage Kenma put him in and the result of Hinata just constantly jumping high and breaking down Nekoma’s tactics. Fans want to see the respectful montage of everyone shaking hands and hugging after the final rally when Kenma shows a lot of will to keep playing.
The season might also show some very expected scenes like Hinata breaking Kenma’s “Cage” and In his mind, Kenma constantly feels contradictory feelings when playing video games with “don’t die yet” in them and many more other thrilling scenes only the fans would understand.
