Waiting for Netflix’s Haikyuu!! Season 3 release date has anime fans impatient. After all, other streaming platforms like Crunchyroll are already streaming Haikyuu!! Season 4 (Haikyuu!! To The Top) and its related OVA episodes, so what’s the big hold up?

The answer may come down to the Haikyuu!! Season 3 English dub by Sentai FilmWorks.

Even though the high-flying volleyball anime series started in 2014, the anime episodes didn’t get a Haikyuu!! dub started until November 2017. The second season followed in 2018 and the Haikyuu!! Season 3 dub initially began releasing in late 2019.

The issue is that episodes for the Haikyuu!! dub were initially released weekly on the HIDIVE streaming platform as an exclusive. Sentai Filmworks also released the English dub as a Haikyuu!! Blu-Ray and DVD box set in the same time frames.

Flash forward and the Haikyuu!! Season 3 dub followed the same pattern. HIDIVE began streaming the dubbed episodes in November 2019 and finished in January 2020.

Sentai FilmWorks released the premium Blu-Ray box set for the dub on December 31, 2019.

Here is the official plot summary for Haikyuu!! Season 3 as described by Sentai FilmWorks:

“The Miyagi Prefecture Representative for the Spring High School National Volleyball Championship continues as the Karasuno team advances to take on the undefeated prefecture champions, Shiratorizawa Academy High School.

This is the strongest opponent Karasuno has ever faced, and the deck is stacked against them with an extra ace in the form Wakatoshi Ushijima, a powerful wing spiker who’s already played with the National Team!

If they want to win, Hinata, Kageyama and the rest of the Crows will have to learn an entirely new playing style in order to counter Ushijima and his seemingly unstoppable spike… and that’s just the first lesson the Shiratorizawa veterans have in store for the Crows.

The game is on as the players hit the court in the third pulse-pounding season of HAIKYU!!”

Animation studio Production I.G. uses a title naming convention where seasons are named after the story arcs.

For example, Haikyuu Season 3 is titled Haikyuu!!: Karasuno Koukou vs. Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou, while Haikyuu Season 4 is called Haikyuu!! To The Top. It’s expected that the Haikyuu!! Season 5 anime will have a similar title.

This article provides everything that is known about Netflix’s Haikyuu!! Season 3 and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

Haikyuu!! Season 3 release date on Netflix U.S.

As of the last update, Netflix U.S. has not officially confirmed the Haikyuu!! Season 3 dub release date on Netflix USA.

Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.

The initial Netflix Haikyuu!! release date happened on October 1, 2019. Netflix U.S. is now streaming the first two seasons with the English dub.

The first two seasons were 25 episodes. The number of Haikyuu!! Season 3 episodes are significantly smaller at only 10 episodes.

Considering that the Haikyuu!! S3 dub has been out for quite a while, the long delay for Netflix users in the United States may be due to licensing issues. Netflix U.S. has not commented publicly on the issue.

Haikyuu!! Season 4 release date on Netflix U.S. likely to follow a similar pattern

The Haikyuu!! To The Top anime first began airing in January 2020. The fourth season will have 24 episodes in total.

Haikyuu!! Season 4 is what is called asplit-cour anime. What’s a “cour,” you might ask For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting. In this case, the second half of the fourth season is releasing in October 2020.

Sentai FilmWorks has not yet announced a Haikyuu!! Season 4 English dub, but if they follow historical precedent it’ll probably release in 2021.

With the 8-ton gorilla Netflix now on the scene, it’s uncertain whether HIDIVE will initially have exclusive streaming rights to the Haikyuu!! Season 4 dub.

In the best-case scenario, Netflix anime fans will probably be waiting quite a while for the Haikyuu!! Season 4 release date on Netflix U.S. Stay tuned!

    • S3 of Haikyuu!! will be out for NZ around the same time as when it gets released in Australia so in the middle of 2021. S4 of Haikyuu!! is not in dub for our countries yet and won’t be until after S3 is out. You’ll have to wait a while for S4 but S3 is on its way!

  1. We really need haikyuu season three on Netflix. It would be so much more accessible to watch it on Netflix, and we wouldn’t watch with annoying ads in the way. If you agree, comment!!!!

  2. Also agree with Shannon.

    I was honestly shocked when I realized the anime didn’t just, abruptly end after season 2 and that Netflix was just really behind. Maybe it’s time to scour the internet and watch season 3+ somewhere else

  3. I just think they’re taking a little too Long it’s all most been six years this Show has been out for but only for 2 seasons to be out and then saying we have to wait till 2021 For the fourth season To come out like Come on it’s 2020 and the Third season isn’t even out yet

  4. Like way can’t we watch whatever we’re ever we want like certain places can’t watch certain things and it’s kind of not fair like Netflix can lose people because they can’t watch the seasons they want to watch because they don’t live in a place where they can see them there are certain shows other people where they live unlike other people

  5. Season 3 going to netflix would probably boost its viewership because i mentioned watching the subbed season 4 to my siblings and they didn’t even know there was a new season, nonetheless a season 3… if they find out season 3 is getting added, they’ll probably jump at the chance to watch it on netflix…

  6. I heard that they may come out with Haikyuu!! season 5, but I don’t understand why season 3 and 4 haven’t arrived yet to Netflix US. I’m pretty sure the dub for season 3 has been out for a while now and season 4 was recently released. I NEED it to come out now, I’m tired of reading spoilers online. I NEED to watch it.

  7. Don’t worry guys I’m sure they won’t leave us hanging like that… They are taking so long because they probably have to TRANSLATE JAPANESE TO ENGLISH which to me… sounds pretty difficult. Plus it requires a lot of work!! The seasons 3 and 4 are coming out at the same time!! Don’t stress it.?

  8. I just started watching anime and the first one I watch was haikyuu!! And I’m on the last episode right now and I have been researching when season 3 will come on Netflix i really hope soon bc im inpatient and I have heard its on other platforms but I can’t get those all im aloud to get is Netflix so I hope it comes on netflix soon bc i really want to watch it

  9. man I just finished watching it now im bummed that season 3 and 4 are not out yet. Hopefully soon season 3 and 4 come in, thankfully i enjoyed my experiance.

  10. Omg I literally can’t wait for season three I finished season one and two tho. And watching this series has given me confidence to do better when I’m playing volleyball and I’m on a team. And honestly it kind of hyped me up when I went to practice!(I got all my overhand serves over during a scrimmage ???!!!)

  11. hulu at least had all the way up to season 3? how are we supposed to legally stream (especially the new episodes) when netflix obviously never cares about the animes they acquire unless THEY are making them… take evangelion for example.
    i don’t want to have to start paying for a third streaming service just to watch something because netflix is inept at handling things. this is so annoying.

  12. I have been waiting forever for it to come out i need thing to watch a am out I have watch a lot of it on youtube but still it needs to come out soon I am getting bored of watching over and over

  13. I am in Australia and I’m dying to see the 3rd Season of Haikyuu!! in english dub. Due to covid it was delayed in its release but is coming to Netflix in the middle of 2021. When it gets released in Australia it will come out in NZ, the USA and the US

    • Found this anime purely by accident, love it! Ready for the next dubbed season! In the meantime started the basketball ? one on Netflix! Need that fixx!

      • OOO! What’s the basketball one called? Sounds cool! I discovered Haikyuu purely because of my friends who kept yelling at me “WHERE’S NISHINOYA?!?!” when I didn’t dive for a volleyball lol.
