High School DxD won't return for Season 5

High School DxD won't return for Season 5

UPDATE: You can accept it or refuse, you can cry or get depressed, but eventually you should admit that High School DxD won't happen no matter whether you believe in it or not. The issue of the original manga series wrapped back in 2018 similar to the last episode of the fourth season that last aired on July 3, 2018. Now is 2023 guys, and Japanese sources are keeping silent on the subject of the possible renewal. We know that you've been waiting for a sequel for so long, but we won't see it. The series is dead!

No doubt you stumbled upon numerous of articles claiming that High School DxD would return for Season 5 someday in 2023 and some authors even promise you the exact release date. But the world was made such a way that if anyone claim anything, they should provide a link to any reliable source. Otherwise, it's noting but twiddle-twaddle. We're monitoring Japanese sources since 2018 and no news has been revealed since then. The best way for you is to admit that High School DxD is canceled and thereby we won't see its Season 5. A sad fact, but it's better than nothing.

Previous Data

For those of you who is looking forward to High School DxD Season 5, we have some news. There is no official confirmation of the next season of the anime. Unfortunately, this is true, and we thereby don't want you to wait for something someone groundlessly promised to you.

It would be useful for you to know that once a studio announces any official news about renewal or even release date, a spokesman certainly publish the official release on the official website and Twitter account.

If we take a look at the official sources, such as we pointed out above, those who stand behind High School DxD are now currently engaged in promoting the BD/DVD release, the studio is going to sell. As a result, those people who are responsible for the renewal are still working on High School DxD Hero merchandising.

Even if High School DxD Season 5 is ever confirmed, most likely, a gap between the current and upcoming season would be not less than 2-3 years. The reason is very simple. On the one hand, Passione Co., Ltd. is currently working on other projects such as Joshi Kosei no Mudazukai, which is set to premiere this July, as well as Z/X, which premiere is slated for October 2019. On the other, they don't have enough sales statistics right now to make a right decision.

Of course, both you and we know the fact that TNK has abandoned High School DxD, and, fortunately, Passione rescued the series. Yet you should realize that we will have to wait some time before getting any news about High School DxD Season 5.

High School DxD has been a new project for the Passione studio. As a result, the studio's leadership is about to evaluate the incomes the franchise is capable of providing. Therefore, as long as Passione are not sure in the commercial advisability of the High School DxD franchise, the creators won't get to work on Season 5, no doubt.

Whether There Will Be High School DxD Season 5

The right question we should ask is whether there will be High School DxD Season 5? According to ANN, about 2,836 BD copies were sold per week in October 22-28. The anime thereby took the 11th place in the list, close to SAO and Darling in the FRANXX. In addition, 726 DVD items have been sold same week.

Having such reliable data in our "pocket" of facts, we now might assume that High School DxD has a chance for Season 5. Moreover, the current season sales have surpassed those of the previous installment of the anime. Therefore, the odds look very high. Another question we should think about is when will High School DxD Season 5 in the case of renewal.

High School DxD Season 5 Release Date

As mentioned above, we evaluate the odds of High School DxD to be renewed for a next season as very high because of the very favorable sales statistics. Yet since the renewal is yet to be announced, we might only speculate on the subject of the possible release date.

In our opinion, High School DxD won't return for Season 5 neither this nor next year. The closest period, we might expect High School DxD Season 5 premiere, in the positive case scenario, is April-July 2021. Nonetheless, we don't rule out earlier premiere completely.

If the Passione studio considers the BD/DVD sales successful enough, as well as in the case that the expenses overcome incomes, we might see High School DxD much earlier. Yet still, in any case, we will have to wait for the official announcement. Don't believe the rumors. Until the studio announced the official pick up of High School DxD for Season 5, no-one knows the exact data.

Therefore, we are looking forward to the official news from the Passionate studio. As soon as the studio announces the renewal, as well as the exact premiere date for a Season 5, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed on the subject.
