After teasing a “Big Announcement” earlier this month, Shonen Jump magazine has now announced in its 30th issue that the Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma TV anime is getting a 4th season! They also revealed that the anime will premiere sometime in October 2019.

Unfortunately, the issue did not reveal any further details on this latest season just yet. Expect the staff or the magazine to reveal more details soon enough.

The manga made its debut in 2012 and received multiple anime seasons. Here is how Viz describes the manga in English:

Soma Yukihira’s old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father’s culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school!

Can Soma really cut it in a place that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress to the school that he belongs there at all?!
