Every diehard anime fan knows about the worldwide popularity of Hunter X Hunter. Many critics and fans have placed it on the list of one of the greatest animes ever. First, it dispatched in 1999 by Nippon Animation with Yoshihiro Togashi’s manga editions serving as the anime’s source material. The mangaka has penned down a total of 36 volumes in the same universe. His last volume came out in 2018 and received immense critical reception.
However, Nippon’s anime adaptation aired for only two years and ended in 2001. It consisted of 62 episodes. Ten years later, Madhouse picked up the show and released a total of 148 episodes during the show’s successful four-year run.
It’s been a while since the last episode was telecasted on television (excluding the re-runs). We know that the anime series has not reached its full conclusion yet. Still, there are many stories left to adapt. What will happen? Is there any chance of renewal of Hunter X Hunter? Or should we prepare ourselves for its official cancellation? Check out all the important details right here.
What are Madhouse’s plans for Hunter X Hunter Season 7?
It seems like Madhouse has no plans regarding the seventh season of Hunter X Hunter. The studio has not revealed anything about the future of the anime series. Instead, they are busy with their other projects. After the show’s successful run, they dispatched other prominent shows like Overlord, One-Punch Man, Alderamin in the Sky, and many more.
Additionally, Madhouse did not have enough source material for producing the seventh instalment at that time. The makers utilized every inch of the manga volumes in their anime adaptations. That’s why the studio decided to shift its attention to other projects.
Do we have enough source material for Hunter X Hunter Season 7?
The manga universe erupted when mangaka Yoshihiro Togashi released his 2018 manga edition of Hunter X Hunter. Eventually, the rumours regarding the possible seventh season also surfaced on the internet. However, Madhouse or any other animation studio stayed silent throughout this event.
Do we have enough source material for Season 7? Technically yes! Will it conclude the overall storyline? Then the answer is a big fat no! Togashi has confirmed that the last manga edition doesn’t put an end to the entire saga.
What about Togashi’s mental health?
According to the latest reports, Togashi is suffering from severe mental health issues. It is the prime reason he is facing many problems with his work on the Hunter X Hunter manga series. He is unable to concentrate properly on his work. He has also requested his wife to conclude the storyline in case he meets death in future.

Hunter X Hunter Season 7: Release Date
We do not have any official confirmation hinting towards the possibility of a brand new season of Hunter X Hunter. It is not uncommon for an anime studio to take a long time to release a new season for the fans. Countless animes are still waiting for their turn to get renewed by their studios.
Plus, Madhouse is quite busy with other anime projects. So, we don’t know when the seventh season will arrive on television.
