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.

Will there be a sixth season of ‘Food Wars!’?

  • Last update on 17.04.2021: 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 do not contain the anime’s new season.

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 as well.

The manga series written by Yūto Tsukuda and illustrated by Shun Saeki was published in Shōnen Jump + magazine in 2015. The latest volume of the manga ranked 13th on the best-selling manga list of 2019. The manga series, which aired 36 volumes in total, progressed in parallel with the anime series and shared its last episode in 2019. The manga series is now complete and isn’t ongoing anymore.

When is the sixth season of the anime, is it possible?

‘Food Wars!’ is a really popular anime series. We can see this from the broadcast life that lasts for five seasons. Few anime can have so many seasons in the anime world. For this continuity, success and sufficient popularity are expected in disc sales. Food Wars has a popularity score of 97.9% on our list and the 52nd most popular anime so far, according to Myanimelist. If the source material were enough, we were sure we would see a new season of the anime.

However, as for the anime series, we actually watched an extra Season 5. Season 4 of the series was thought to be final. On October 4, 2019, the anime’s manga was completed, and it is no longer ongoing. It seems like a difficult omission that we see an extra new season. According to our evaluation, there 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.

    • I COMPLETELY AGREE!! You literally put my thoughts into words. At first, I thought it was lame and childish, but when I was dared to watch the first season, I completely fell in love with it. I’m very picky about anime. I like it if I were to say out of the hundred anime I’ve seen, I’ve only liked three, and FOOD WARS is the new addition. I literally finished the anime right before posting this comment, and I had binged watched all five seasons in less than two weeks, and that’s crazy even for me. I really hope that if the creator of Food Wars see all these comments and supports, they will act on them because this is a super amazing anime, and to leave it on suck a note would make me sad to see it at an end

    • Can’t agree more.. please last season. Or even a movie to finish the anime.

  5. I agree so much with ruby, the person who posted the last post.

    • Thank you so much Eva for agreeing with me it means a lot to me I new that many fans of food wars are all cheering the crew to do more seasons.

  6. I super agree with the previous comments! This is honestly my favorite anime, and I’ve rewatched it like ten times now, and I can’t seem to get over how well scripted it is and how perfectly developed the characters are, and how all the dots come together. I also love how there are so many characters, and everyone pushes their own style and fights for the top spot. I really do believe that this could be a successful anime if you guys were to continue the animation. This could become really popular, especially if you guys were to show the students going to different countries and facing off with other students there or maybe Yukihira and Erina create their own school for people of any age to learn how to cook and explore what it means to be a true chef. this other idea I had isn’t mandatory, but I’m personally strictly vegan, and TBH I admire all forms of cooking, and I appreciate a persons skill and dedication, but there were some dishes in food wars that were 100% plant-based, like when Jouichiro beat Souma at the dormitory, I honestly think vegan food is the next step. Cause a lot of vegan food is good for you but doesn’t necessarily taste good. As an aspiring chef myself, I feel like perfecting this way of cooking and making it better than traditional cooking would blow people away, especially in the anime; if Souma were to learn how to create deeper levels of umami without using any animal products, then I can for sure say that’s a win. OVERALL, I just love this any, and I honestly don’t mind if you guys don’t include that. I honestly just fell in love with the story design and how the main character doesn’t give up even tho he faces failure time and time again. it’s honestly inspiring, and just like naruto or dragon ball z or one-piece, this anime can for sure prosper if they were to expand the storyline and keep it dedicated to its roots. 10/10 this anime just pulls at my emotions, so many heartfelt experiences I can’t help but cry and feel inspired !!!

    • I totally agree with you. I love this anime, I love the story and I love the characters’ designs. I am a die-hard fan of this anime I feel the same way as you do.

  7. I think they should have a sixth season to be the real final season since it could be where Soma and Erina get married, and Soma finally wins a food war against his dad. Another thing in the sixths season could be where they all graduate and go on to do their own things, and Soma takes over the Yukihira diner. These would be just some ideas for a sixth season if they were to make one since it kind of feels like an incomplete ending to me.

    • Replying to myself to change that instead of another season just to make a movie called the final plate or something to finish up the anime.

  8. Honestly, I feel like the anime was left on a cliffhanger, and it would definitely be better to have a 6th season to find closure about what happens between Yukihiro and Erina; also, if they were to have a child, I feel like they should also have a series for him kinda like Naruto and Boruto happened that would definitely be super awesome for the fans (us) to see I really hope that the creator looks at all the love and appreciation we try sending him and that he can find some new inspiration or something I don’t know how he feels, but I can tell everyone has worked really hard on this anime and continue to make great things come

  9. Thank you for agreeing with me. I honestly want food wars to go on as much as possible so that the episodes could be about the same length as Naruto’s or fairytales episodes. I mean, Food Wars have such a great theme and great character designs. I fell in love with this anime, and I have watched all of the food wars seasons like about 30 times.

  10. Food Wars is an amazing anime series with different types of characters, etc… I think that many fans around the world really want to watch one or more new seasons again. So please, Mr. Yuto Tsukuda, I ask you to complete your Food Wars anime series because, after all, I think that your anime series is incomplete and also the number of fans comments has been an increase, behalf of us we believe that still, you are going to find enough materials to make new seasons. We are looking forward to your upcoming next seasons.🇦🇺👍

  11. Okay, now here is a question. What would you guys do if food wars were the same length as one piece? Or what would happen if Soma has not gone to that culinary school? Would there be some other kind of interesting plots like the original plots? What do you guys think? This is kind of like a survey.

  12. Well, I hope there will be the next season for Food Wars. Since season 5, it was said that Yukihira Soma had traveled the world to gain new skills, and there we also witnessed that Nakiri Erina has fallen in love with Soma. And I really want to see how Yukihira Soma is able to make the Nakiri Erina (God’s tongue) say it’s delicious. And of course, I can’t wait to see those who have been defeated by Yukihira Soma (especially the other Elite Ten members of Yukihira Soma’s generation) how they will improve and how they will apply their learnings to the Food Wars they lost. Another thing the Result of the BLUE, since Nakiri Erina won over Yukihira Soma, and Erina’s family has become happier with additional family Member Asahi Saiba, I think there is more to look forward to. But I hope Nakiri Erina and Yukihira Soma will end up together. Yieeehaa ♥

  13. April 17 is over still sixth plate isn’t released when will it releases .The next release date ?

  14. Legendary! Food wars is really a masterpiece, just like a roughout food you can learn. I’m going to write my thoughts here. First of all, I really want another season, maybe if there’s another season I could say that I’m satisfied. I agree with the others too, that’s all, thank you.
