Shokugeki no Soma: The Fifth Plate” came back to entertain its fans on 11 April 2020. With the season drawing closer to the finish line one can only wonder if there will be a Food Wars Season 6 ?

Let’s have a look!

Food Wars Season 6 Announcement

Season 5 of Food Wars was announced right after the finale of the fourth season. The fans have had a range of responses for the series. While some can’t wait for the succeeding episodes, the others have found some of the episodes to be slow-paced. This leads us straight to the question, whether there will be a Food Wars Season 6 or not. As of now, the fifth season stands to be the final season of the series.

Food Wars Season 6 Release Date

Food Wars: The Fifth Plate began its journey on 11 April 2020. Right after two episodes’ release, it went on a hiatus due to Coronavirus for a few months and resumed its course on 17 July 2020. 25 September will finally bring a close to the fifth season consisting of 13 episodes (the supposed final season of the series). Although there has been no announcement of a Season 6, we can hope to look out for a possible epilogue story or OVA specials in the future, as is often done in the Anime world.

Food Wars Season 6 Storyline

The slowing down of pace in the anime was handled by cutting off certain portions from the manga while adapting it on to the screen.

The focus of the final arc of the anime has shifted to Erina Nakiri, the other protagonist after Soma Yukihira. It revolves around her and her family. However, as seen previously family reunions can’t always be counted on as happy and serene moments. Even though Erina became the director of Totsuki Culinary Academy, we all know anime series don’t let characters live happily for a long time. All is further explored in the remaining episodes of the series. This season also introduces us to more new characters called “Les Cuisiniers Noirs” or “The Midnight Chefs”. They are presented as a new challenge to be faced by Soma.  Stream the fifth and final season of Food Wars to find out more about this new threat to Soma and Erina in the world culinary competitions.
