The anime series shows how volleyball has affected the lives of these volleyball players.
For now, there have been no announcements made regarding the renewal of the Haikyuu anime series. Haikyuu season 4 finished on April 3, 2020, which means an entire year has passed without any updates on the 5th season. However, we all are aware of the global pandemic and how it has affected the entire world.
