High School DxD has earned its place as one of the most popular ecchi fantasy anime. With its explosive mix of action, comedy, and tantalizing fanservice, it’s gathered a devoted fandom eager for more adventures of Issei Hyoudou and his harem.
While Season 4 left fans wanting more, anticipation has been building for a High School DxD Season 5. After delays due to COVID-19, new details have finally emerged. Here’s everything we know about this fan-favorite anime’s highly anticipated fifth season.
Season 5 was originally slated for release in 2020, but production delays related to the pandemic pushed it back. With the world returning to normal, insiders now speculate that Season 5 could premiere as early as 2024—about 4 years after the fourth season aired in 2018.

Unfortunately, there’s no official trailer for Season 5 yet. With no confirmation of the new season from the studio, it’s still too early. Once an announcement drops, fans can expect an exciting trailer shortly after.
Season 4 ended on a cliffhanger with Azazel confronting Indra about Cao Cao’s past. This plot point will likely carry over into Season 5. The new season will potentially adapt content from Volumes 11 and 12 of the light novels, the source material for the anime adaptation.
Fans can expect more promotions and exams as Issei and his friends advance in the demon ranks. There’s sure to be lots of risque humor, steamy romantic encounters, and epic supernatural battles. With new demons arising, Rias and her team must likely intensify their training to take on even bigger threats.

Season 4 was produced by animation studio Passione, a change from previous seasons done by TNK. Despite some negative fan reactions to Passione’s style changes, they will likely animate the fifth season.
