Haikyuu!! season 4 aired in two sets, from January to April 2020 and from October to December 2020. With the anime currently following the Karasuno team playing at the Nationals for the first time in years, and season 4 ending on an insanely high point with Karasuno鈥檚 win against Inarizaki High school, Haikyuu!! manga and anime fans are equally hyped for their next match, which is revealed at the end of season 4 to be against Tokyo鈥檚 Nekoma High school.

Recent speculation suggests that Haikyuu!! season 5 might just be announced at the upcoming Jump Festa 22.
