Will There Be A Hunter x Hunter Season 7?
There is no concrete information about Hunter x Hunter Season 7. In Hunter x Hunter 2011, 148 episodes were aired, concluding the 13th Chairman election arc following the Chimera Ant arc. As a result of the mangaka’s health and legal issues with the publishers, the manga has continued with many hiccups since 2008.
Almost a year after the manga began, Hunter x Hunter was released with 62 episodes, so it diverges quite a bit from the manga but is still amazing. As with the anime, the seventh season of Hunter x Hunter will begin with the Dark Continent arc that follows right where the anime ended.
Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Expected Plot
Hunter x Hunter’s last season ended with chapter 339 of the manga. This means that the show has 4 more volumes of the Hunter x Hunter manga series. In Season 7, we will see a much more perilous voyage than the one aboard the Chimera Ant, and it’s likely that not one person will survive to return to Earth.
Gin reveals to Gon that he and his fellow hunters have identified the vastness that lies beyond their realms of knowledge and it is in each person’s mind to uncover the mystery that lies beyond their days. Following this announcement, the Kakin empire launches an expedition into the Dark Continent, and Beyond, Chairman Netero’s son joins the expedition. Eventually, both Kurapika and Leorio are hired by the Zodiacs as well. Finally, the V5 sponsors both Kakin’s and Beyond’s expeditions to the Dark Continent by sponsoring both of their parties.
Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Release Date
At this time, no release date has been announced. It must first be formally announced before a release date can be determined. In the last season, the Election story arc was adapted and more adventures have been uncovered.

As for the two remaining arcs, the Dark Continent Expedition and the Succession Contest, Season 7 would cover either or both. Though Yoshihiro Togashi’s declining health prevented a conclusion to the Succession arc. However, we think Hunter x Hunter Season 7 won’t debut before 2023 if there’s a plan to bring it back.
Hunter x Hunter is an exceptional anime series but unfortunately, the release of a new season seems to be delayed for the unforeseeable future. It is indeed sad to hear about the sufferings of the Mangaka Togashi Yoshihiro and we wish he returns to his healthy self soon. Fans of the series are eagerly and patiently waiting for Hunter x Hunter season 7 but it seems as though the wait will be a bit longer.
