With the fourth season of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma coming to a close this month, it was only a matter of time before the next season for the popular TV anime would be confirmed.
At this year’s Jump Festa, anime studio J.C.Staff confirmed a fifth season for Food Wars during a stage event for the series. What’s more, the new season is set to premiere sooner than later – in April of 2020. The cast and staff from the fourth season are all returning for its fifth season, too.
The above visual was shared alongside the reveal, showcasing the main characters under cherry blossom trees, an appropriate setting for next spring when the new season will air. As expected, the title for the fifth season is Food Wars! The Fifth Plate.
