This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of February 8, 2021.
Hunter X Hunter is one of the most iconic anime series released in the '90s.
Just like most anime series, Hunter X Hunter is based on a manga series. Yoshihiro Togashi started it in early 1998.
The manga series was first adapted into an anime in 1999 and concluded after a short run. In 2011, Madhouse released another Hunter X Hunter anime series, which ended in 2014 after six long seasons.
An English dubbed version of the series released in Toonami in April 2016.
After season 6 of the English version ended in Toonami as well, the demand for season 7 became even higher.
Will Hunter X Hunter Return For Season 7? Let's find out.
Unfortunately for fans, the chances remain low for the anime series to return for season 7 as of the moment. Madhouse has not announced any plans of renewing Hunter X Hunter for new seasons yet.
They're currently busy with other projects instead and have released several anime series and films last year. It's also worth noting that the past seasons have already exhausted the source material for an anime adaptation. If there will be enough available source material in the future, perhaps Madhouse will be more than ready to pick up the anime series for season 7.
In rather sad news, it will most likely take a while before creator Yoshihiro Togashi could produce more manga for Hunter X Hunter. The mangaka has been reportedly suffering from severe mental health issues that have affected his work. The mangaka has been under extreme pressure due to the popularity of his work. He is reportedly still recuperating until now.
However, Togashi has expressed extreme dedication to finishing Hunter X Hunter. The legendary author does not want to disappoint his audience. He's reportedly asked his wife (creator of Sailormoon) to complete Hunter X Hunter if he dies.
Hunter X Hunter manga series currently has 36 volumes, with the last one released in 2018. Four of these volumes remain untapped by the past six installments and could serve as the source material for season 7.
However, these four volumes have not completed the Dark Continent arc. Thus fans have to wait for more until Togashi releases the remaining chapter.
With no confirmation regarding the renewal yet, it's impossible to tell. There is still so much work to do, and right now, the creator's mental wellness is much more important.
Fans shouldn't worry, though, because it's normal for anime series to take long gaps before releasing new seasons.
