There will be two more seasons of Hunter X Hunter in July 2021.
The popular anime television show Hunter X Hunter is based on Yoshihiro Togashi’s manga of the same name. English dub of the series began airing on Adult Swim on April 16, 2016, after the series originally aired in Japan between 2011 and 2014. Since it had already been adapted into a series from 1999-2001, this is the show’s second adaptation after being made into a film in 1994. In comparison with the 1999 TV adaptation, the series became a mega-hit.
An international accolade has been given to the film for its excellent animation, intriguing plotline, and compelling characters. A couple of anime films and several OVAs have also been made based on the manga it is based on. It should be obvious that anime is loved by a large and loyal audience. March 2019 marked the release of the first three seasons of the show on Netflix. As a result, you must also be excited about the fifth and sixth seasons.
Nevertheless, since the anime last aired seven years ago, many new chapters have been released, which means there is a lot to adapt. With so much new material to adapt, fans shouldn’t give up, even though the show is currently said to only have six seasons. There is a possibility that it might eventually return.
