The story follows the adventures of the Armed Detective Agency, a group of super-powered individuals who solve mysteries and fight crime in Yokohama. The anime has aired five seasons so far, with the latest one ending in June 2021. Fans are eagerly waiting for the next season, but will there be Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6?
Will there be Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6?
As of now, there is no official confirmation or announcement about Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6. However, that does not mean that the anime is over. The manga is still ongoing, with the latest volume (volume 23) released in February 2022. The anime has adapted up to volume 18 in Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 and in Season 5, we are expecting 4 more volumes will be covered, so there is enough source material for another season. Moreover, the anime is quite popular and well-received by fans and critics alike, so there is a high demand for more episodes. Therefore, it is likely that Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6 will happen eventually, but we may have to wait for some time before it gets greenlit.
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6 Release Date
Since there is no official announcement about Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6 yet, we cannot predict an exact release date for it. However, based on the previous seasons’ release patterns, we can make an educated guess. The first season aired from Apr 7, 2016 to Jun 23, 2016, followed by the second season from Oct 6, 2016 to Dec 16, 2016. The third season Apr 12, 2019 to Jun 28, 2019, after a two-year gap. The fourth season aired from Jan 4, 2023 to Mar 29, 2023, followed by the fifth season, which started airing on Jul 12, 2023, and it’s still ongoing (Expected to end in October) (as of August 2023).
If we assume that the sixth season will follow a similar schedule, we can expect it to air sometime in January 2024 or mid-2024. Of course, this is just speculation and may change depending on various factors such as production delays, COVID-19 pandemic, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6 Plot
The plot of Bungou Stray Dogs Season 6 will depend on where the fifth season left off and how closely it follows the manga. The fifth season covered the Decay of Angels arc, which introduced a new enemy organization that aims to destroy the world using a mysterious book that can alter reality. The Armed Detective Agency and their allies have to stop them while also dealing with their own personal issues and conflicts. The sixth season may continue this arc or start a new one, depending on how much material is left from the manga. We can expect to see more action, drama, comedy, and mystery as the characters face new challenges and enemies.
