Is it possible for Hunter x Hunter to finally continue in another season? Here is everything you need to know about Hunter x Hunter Season 7.
Illustrated and written by Yoshihiro Togashi, Hunter x Hunter is a Japanese manga series that was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump.
Although the serialization started in 1998, the manga was put on a hiatus until 2006. It was eventually adapted into an anime and has 148 episodes.
Aside from those, the series has separate OVAs, theatrical films, and musicals, among others.
The popularity of Hunter x Hunter is spread around the globe. It has sold more than 78 copies in circulation in 2019. Season 6 was released in 2014, and since then, fans have been waiting for the next season to be released.
Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Release Date Status
So far, there has been no new update on Hunter x Hunter Season 7. However, there is newfound hope that we might see another season thanks to developments in the manga.
After 4 years of hiatus, Hunter x Hunter creator Yoshihiro Togashi created a Twitter account to give fans an update regarding the series.
The tweet contains an image showing a manga panel with the number 6. The caption translates to "4 more episodes for the time being", although this is believed to relate to Hunter x Hunter manga chapters and not more anime content just yet.
Season 6 of the series covered the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc of the manga. The most recent season was released in 2014. Despite the sudden announcement, there is still no official update regarding season 7.
Fans thought that there is a chance for the season to be released as soon as Mariya Ise (who portrays Killua) and Megumi Han (who portrays Gon) teased fans about a new Hunter x Hunter project.
Unfortunately, fans did not get a season 7 or a third movie but a games series based on Hunter x Hunter.
It has been 4 years since the hiatus started and since Togashi has been suffering from back pain, he couldn’t work well and continue the story.
Some believe that the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc is a good end to the story since Gon finally met his father, which is basically the main objective of the series.
The other characters also seemed to have solved their issues which meant that if there will be another season, a new set of characters might be introduced.
