Food Wars! Season 6 (Sixth Plate) Release date, Renewal

Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma (aka Sōma of the Shokugeki) is an anime adaptation of the manga created by Yūto Tsukuda. The anime series, which was first announced in 2014, was broadcast on many popular platforms such as Netflix and Hulu TV. Also, Food Wars has been licensed by Crunchyroll from season three. The anime was created by the famous Japanese animation studio J.C. Staff, which releases many successful anime every year. The successful studio has also prepared the final season of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K and One Punch Man, which are beloved series in recent years. The anime adaptation of “Food Wars!”, directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani, began airing on April 4, 2015, and a total of 85 episodes were broadcast so far. After the end of Food Wars: Season 5, known as The Fifth Plate, fans are wondering about the sixth season. So will there be a sixth plate of Food Wars?

What is Food Wars! plotline?

Yukihira Souma’s dream is to become a full-time chef at his father’s restaurant and surpass his father’s skills. But after Yukihira graduated from middle school, her father closed the restaurant to cook in Europe. Souma’s fighting spirit was revived by a challenge from Jouichiro, who graduated from an elite culinary school where only 10% of the students could graduate. Let’s see if Souma can achieve it.

Food Wars: Shokugeki seasons review

The series actually started with a great first season. Undoubtedly, everyone thought the show was enormous. However, Food Wars could not meet this expectation in the following seasons and started to decline. What made the anime beautiful was the pleasant relationship between the characters and the comedy. The beginning of season 2 focused entirely on shokugeki and moved away from his style. But the end of the season surprisingly ended well with the ‘restaurant rescue’ test. The first two seasons are the most popular seasons of the series.

Season 3 begins with a magnificent introduction of “elite 10”. But after a very short time, it is understood that the elite ten is human like everyone else. Season 3 focused on foodgasm and shokugekiden. The series, which reduced the dose of comedy in Season 3 and 4, was expected to be the final in Season 4. The story was completed, but the producers decided to continue it for another season.

Although there are generally fluctuations in itself, anime is an above-average quality. We are harsh in our criticism because it failed to maintain its potential in the last seasons. The anime changed many viewers’ viewpoints about cuisine and food and enabled them to gain knowledge in international cuisine.

When is the Sixth Plate Release date? Will there be a season 6?

  • Last update on 1.01.2020: At the time of writing, J.C.Staff or licensees have not renewed the series for a sixth season. The fifth season of the series was defined as the final season;  the manga is currently fully adapted, and no new season is expected. The studio’s 2021 works have been added to the post.

There are some criteria we can look at first to understand whether the series will have a 6th season. One of them is whether there is enough source material for anime. Anime’s sources are usually the manga series they were adapted to, and Food Wars is a manga adaptation.

The manga series written by Yūto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki was published in Shōnen Jump + magazine in 2015. The manga series, which aired eight volumes in total, progressed in parallel with the anime series and shared its last episode in June 2019. The manga series is now complete and is no longer live.

As for the anime series, we actually watched an extra Season 5. Season 4 of the series was thought to be final. It seems like a difficult omission that we see an extra new season. According to our evaluation, it will not be the sixth season of the series. However, surprises never end in the anime world.

Hello, this is Kadir. I am the lead author of the blog you are reading. My fondness for TV series and Anime made me a good researcher about the release dates. I like to share my researches and analyses on the blog.


  1. for sixth plate it would be nice if saiba joechiro has another ligetimate son who can surpass his skills about culinary and also i want to see if yukihira will have a child who can inherit his skills.
    i mean just like the anime naruto his son boruto has its own series too . so that is my suggestion so far hehehe

  2. It is a very different shounen that causes of going into the kitchen and cooking every time I watch it. You can get quite different information from food wars 10/10. I wish there was one more season.

  3. I watch with fear so that I will finish all the episodes. The scenes of flying to the skies naked while eating are a little extreme. They seem like they have pushed too much to be ecchi, but okay. The character design is so successful, and the illustrations are so funny.

  4. Contain spoiler

    I really want the sixth season when soma faces another enemy, but that enemy turns to be his cousin Joichiro’s long-lost brothers’ son that is the same age as soma, and in season six, I want to know about Joichiro’s family. I want even more seasons in the. Seasons after the sixth, I want the generation’s prodigies to go through an adventure. I mean, it does say that food is an endless horizon, and I don’t want somas generation to end unless it has at least 30 seasons, and then the anime makers can move onto the next generation when soma and Erina marry, and the child is the third generation that possesses the god though and the second generation prodigies that goes through many various challenges. If the producer (creator of food wars anime or manga )of food wars is reading this, then Please make it happen.

    I really really really want this anime to go on. I don’t care what the other people say. I thought that the entire season 1 through 5 was great. It was beyond what I could express with words, and I want this anime to go on; there is no limit to what you guys can accomplish; I am rooting for you guys, and don’t be discouraged, not that I know how you feel like, but please I don’t want to see food wars end until I see at least three generations stories I wish you the best I am food wars fan and I don’t want this to end there is no limit to a person’s imaginations so I know that you can do it and make food wars a great anime continuing forward. If you guys are stuck on a season, you could post a notice saying what food war fans think should be the next plot in crunchy roll anime-planet VRV or any other websites that you could watch food wars on. I really appreciate your work.

    I didn’t know where I could put my opinions on and get it out to you guys, so I found this website and put my opinions about food wars in the comments. I wish you guys the best this is kind of like a letter saying that there are people who like your work. They wish that food wars won’t end too soon, and I personally think that even if the whole world doesn’t like your work and only one person does, you should keep on going even if the odds are stacked against you, but I think (not that I know you or who likes you works) there are more then one person who likes your works so keep on going and release the sixth season and the other seasons that you will create ( not that I know if you read this letter and decide to do it or not)in the future.
