Tokyo Ghoul Season 5: Is It Renewed or Cancelled?

‘Tokyo Ghoul’ is one of the most popular dark fantasy anime shows to binge-watch. Based on the best-selling manga of all time, it is a Japanese epic fantasy anime series. Sui Ishida is the author and illustrator of this work. On the 8th of September, 2011, the first chapter of the manga series was released.

The manga was turned into an anime after a three-year wait. On July 4, 2014, Tokyo Ghoul’s first season premiered for the first time. In less than a year, the second season of Tokyo Ghoul A was released on January 9, 2015, followed by season three on April 3, 2018, and season four on October 9, 2018.

Season 5 of ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ is currently on everyone’s minds, and here’s what we know so far.

The Season 5 Plot of Tokyo Ghoul

Because the fifth season of Tokyo Ghoul would have to adopt a new story written by Ishida, there is no known plot for the upcoming series. There are no more manga stories to adjust after the four seasons that adapted the manga (except for Tokyo Ghoul A, which is a separate issue).

As for the possibility of a manga-authentic remake of season two, which is unlikely since Ishida himself wrote the story of Tokyo Ghoul A and the side-story being explored further, that would probably be released as an OVA, like [Jack] and PINTO.

For the most part, the plot follows the manga. In the first season, we follow college student Ken Kaneki as he narrowly escapes a fatal encounter with his date Rize Kamishiro, who turns out to be a ghoul after all.

His condition was deteriorating rapidly, and he was rushed to the hospital. When Kaneki awakens from his coma, he discovers that he has been transformed into a half-ghoul.

As for the second season, Ishida himself wrote the story, which has some similarities to the manga but is mainly a reinterpretation of the second part of the manga itself. After the events that brought Ken Kaneki to Aogiri Tree, this story follows him.

In Tokyo Ghoul, what happened to Ken Kaneki?

Two OVA episodes, one of which is a prequel to Kish Arima’s youth before he entered the CCG became its best enforcer, are called [Jack]. Like [Jack] in the Tokyo Ghoul series, Tokyo Ghoul: Pinto is a part of the same narrative canon.

Sh Tsukiyama and Chie Hori met in the novel Tokyo Ghoul: Days and the story of how they became so close is based on that story. Only three months had passed since the release of [Jack] when this 25-minute film was released on December 25, 2015.

Following on the first season of Tokyo Ghoul: re, which adapted the manga’s first portion, the second season focuses on Ken Kaneki’s journey to becoming the One-Eyed King and establishing a workable partnership between ghouls and humans, which was a continuation of the first season.

Characters from Tokyo Ghoul Season 5

We think that if there were a fifth season, Ken Kaneki would return. Tokyo Ghoul’s tumultuous finale has left a large number of characters alive, and these characters, along with a slew of new ones, will almost certainly return. However, because no new stories will be set in Ishida’s universe, there isn’t much to say.

Season 5 of ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ Release Date

Toshio Ghoul the fourth season, debuted on October 9, 2018, and ended on December 25, 2018. Fans may not be able to witness the fifth season because season 4 was the conclusion of Ken’s journey.

Because the fourth season ended on a high note, it’s most probable that the fifth season won’t materialize, despite how heartbreaking it sounds. So long as Sui Ishida doesn’t come up with a fresh storyline or relaunch the manga series?

Fans of “Tokyo Ghoul” may rest certain that the story’s arc has concluded and all of the story’s mysteries have been resolved.


Some fans of Tokyo Ghoul, one of the most popular dark fantasy anime, have expressed their desire for a continuation of the series, despite its conclusion. Season 5 of Tokyo Ghoul seems unlikely due to the fact that the manga’s original author is otherwise occupied. We’ll let you know if there’s any new information.
