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.
Season 6 of the series covered the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc of the manga. As mentioned, this was released in 2014 and up until now, there is still no announcement when Season 7 will be released.
Fans thought that there is a chance for the season to be released 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.
Like the anime, there is also no progress in the manga. This could be one of the factors why the anime was not made since there is no material to follow. It has been 3 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. Whether the story is finished or not, fans will have to wait for a further announcement regarding this.
