We discuss whether there will be a Season 5 of the HiDive anime series Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and its renewed or canceled status.
As one of the most popular fantasy anime, Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? only seems to get better with each new installment. The anime, which mixes mythology and action in a world that often resembles an RPG, follows a young adventurer named Bell Cranel (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), who starts as the only member of the Hestia Familia. With her blessing, he dedicates himself to fighting and growing stronger in the Dungeon, an underground labyrinth filled with several monsters and other perils.
With four seasons under its belt, this series has solidified its spot as one to keep up with. From character design to fights to storytelling, this show stands out for its uniqueness and constant growth. That has been especially evident with season four’s 8.13 score on My Anime List, the highest rating for an anime installment yet. This series has only gotten better with time, and it is satisfying to see it getting the recognition it has earned.
Will there be a Season 5 of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? – renewed or canceled status
Despite the success of season four, a fifth season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? has not been announced by the studio or anyone else at this time. This is not to say the series will not get a fifth season, however, as animes have been known to announce new seasons at any time, from the premiere of the last episode to several months after.
Considering this particular season’s popularity, I find it hard to believe Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? will not get renewed for the fifth season. If it does, it likely will not premiere until 2024 at the earliest, assuming it’s already in production.
With anime, sometimes there can be an issue where the show catches up to the source material. While in the past, some shows have continued with story arcs not found in the manga or novels to varying degrees of success, most times, it is a smarter move to stick with the storylines fans are already familiar with. Luckily there are at least four volumes worth of material left to cover after this season, which is usually enough for one season.
However, there is no more available material after that, so there’s a chance that the production team could be waiting for more novels to release to ensure storylines for future seasons as well. If that is the case, here’s hoping that a season five is announced sooner rather than later.
Has Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon canceled?
There has been no indication or confirmation that Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is canceled. We fully expect an announcement for a fifth season in the near future.
