If you’re hoping for a more traditional ending to this particular anime, it seems you may be out of luck. While there have been rumors that have mentioned that a possible Season 5 could be released, there has not been any official word from the creators. However, for those who are hoping to catch the final arc of this anime, there is a way to do so.

Rather than releasing a traditional Season 5, the final arcs are being condensed into a two-part movie. The first, titled Haikyu!! The Dumpster Battle will be released worldwide on May 31, 2024. The second, and currently untitled film, will be released at a later date.

Fans seem split on the decision to break the final chapters up into two feature-length films, as they are worried about the possibility of important plot points being cut to fit run time. We’ll just need to see how well the films adapt the final moments of Haikyu!!, with the possibility of a half-season to fill in the blanks down the line.
