If you ask anime fans what their favorite shounen anime is, one of the likely answers would be Hunter x Hunter. The beloved series is well-known around the world, but can fans expect an anime continuation in Hunter x Hunter Season 7 anytime soon? Here's what we think!

Hunter x Hunter: A Classic Shounen Series Standing the Test of Time
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 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, having more than 78 million copies in circulation in 2019.
Hunter x Hunter Season 6 was released in 2014, and since then, fans have been waiting for the next season to come out.
What Has the Hunter x Hunter Anime Covered So Far?
Hunter x Hunter Season 6, which came out in 2014, covered the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc of the manga.
Fans thought the next season would be released soon as Killua VA Mariya Ise (also Himeno in Chainsaw Man) and Gon VA Megumi Han (also Kana Arima in Oshi no Ko) teased fans about a new Hunter x Hunter project.
However, it turned out to be a game series based on Hunter x Hunter.
Now, it has been years since the hiatus started, and since Togashi has been suffering from health issues, he couldn’t continuously work on the story.
Will There Be a Hunter x Hunter Season 7?
So far, there has been no new update on Hunter x Hunter Season 7. This is likely due to the lack of manga source material to adapt for the anime's continuation.
The most recent Hunter x Hunter manga chapter is Chapter 400 titled Secrecy, which came out in December 2022.
This shows that the manga is still effectively on a hiatus, and until more chapters get released, fans can only wait and hope for the best.
Can We Expect More Content From Hunter x Hunter?
Some believe that the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc is a good end to the story since Gon finally meets his father, which is his main objective in the series.
The other characters also seem to have resolved their conflicts, so should there be another season, a new set of characters might be introduced.
