Food Wars Season 6 Updates
There seems to be no possibility for a sixth season and the fifth may very well be the last serving in this 5-course anime series. It was announced early this year that season 5 would air between April and September and would wrap up the series.
Optimistic newcomers may think that since the fifth season was announced only after the season 4 finale there should be some hope. On the contrary, long term fans were convinced since last season that the fifth would be the final and there is no use hoping for a season 6.
It doesn’t mean however that all hope must be lost. Though we may never get a season 6 , the creators could still come out with additional prequels or even maybe a cinematic release. So hold your horses it’s not a shut door… yet.
There is also a possibility that maybe the onset of the pandemic bought some budgetary restraints to the show which may change once the virus eases. There has been no confirmed report about this and we run on hope.
The anime has 5 seasons with a total of 86 episodes and with an 8.2 average rating on IMDB it surely is lovely binge for the lovers of the culinary and anime
