The Haikyuu!! no Hi Zenjitsu-sai talk show announced on Sunday that the fourth anime season will begin airing on MBS and TBS' Super Animeism programming block in January 2020. The new anime season was announced at Jump Festa 2019 last December.

Voice actor Kazuyuki Okitsu (Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online, Orange) will join the cast as Suguru Daishou, the third year captain of Nohebi Academy volleyball team.

The talk show also announced an original video animation titled Haikyuu!!: Riku vs Kuu (Haikyuu!!: Land vs Sky). The two-episode anime, adapting chapters from volumes 22 and 23, will first debut at the Jump Festa 2020 event, which runs on December 21 and 22. TOHO animation will ship the original video anime on Blu-ray and DVD on January 22, 2020.

Haikyuu!! adapts Haruichi Furudate's volleyball manga of the same title, which launched as a one-shot in Shounen Jump NEXT seasonal magazine in January 2011. Weekly Shounen Jump published a second one-shot in April 2011, where it began regular serialization in February 2012. Shueisha published the 38th volume on June 4, with the 39th volume planned for a September 4 release. Haikyuu!! has a cumulative 34 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation.

The first three anime seasons premiered in Spring 2014, Fall 2015, and Fall 2016. The 15th, 21st, and 27th volumes shipped with three original video episodes in March 2015, May 2016, and August 2017, respectively. The manga also inspired four compilation films, the latest of which screened in September 2017.

A "kick-off" event for the new anime season will be held on September 22 at the Maihama Amphitheater in Chiba. Voice cast members Ayumu Murase, Kaito Ishikawa, Kouki Uchiyama, Souma Saitou, and Yuki Kaji will make an appearance at the event.

Oh yeah, looking forward to this! Still in Season 1 but I’ll surely catch up to proceedings long before Winter ‘20.
Congrats to all the Haikyu!! fans by the way!

Hopefully, Production I.G. will deliver the goods again!
Really pleased to have it in the Winter season (and most likely through Spring as well) too!

Anime-only people, DON'T SKIP THIS OVA because it will be a DIRECT ADAPTATION OF THE MANGA chapters that happen right after Season 3. So it should be 100% canon. The Tokyo Qualifiers arc is VERY important in developing all the Nekoma characters and introduces new rivals that will appear in the future. If you skip this you might not completely understand some stuff that happens in S4.

Production I.G killed it with Run With the Wind, I don't doubt they're gonna destroy it with this season. Jan 2020 can't come any sooner
