The "Haikyu!! no Hi Zenjitsu-Sai" event announced on Sunday that the fourth season of the Haikyu!! television anime will premiere in January 2020 in the Super Animeism timeslot on MBS. The event also announced that Kazuyuki Okitsu will play Suguru Daishō.
The official website presented the character designs for the new characters from Nekoma and Fukurōdani High Schools:
Production I.G's first television anime adaptation of Furudate's volleyball manga premiered in April 2014. The second season of the anime premiered in October 2015, and the third season premiered in October 2016. Crunchyroll streamed all three seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed all three seasons. Sentai Filmworks released the anime's first season on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2015, then again in November 2017 with an English dub. The company released the second season on home video on January 16, 2018.
Crunchyroll also began streaming the Haikyu!! The Movie: Talent and Sense and Haikyu!! The Movie: Battle of Concepts compilation films in December. Both films opened in Japan in September 2017. An earlier pair of compilation films, Gekijō-ban Haikyu!! Owari to Hajimari and Gekijō-ban Haikyu!! Shōsha to Haisha, premiered in Japan in 2015.
Haruichi Furudate launched the original manga in 2011. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally and in print, and is now publishing the manga simultaneously with its Japanese release digitally. The manga has also inspired a series of stage plays. The seventh stage play ran in April-May 2019, with a new one slated for this fall.
