During the ending scenes of Season 5, the workers at Studio Bones, the animation studio that has been tasked with bringing Bungo Stray Dogs to life, left a little hint about Season Six. While they did not outright announce a new season, they did imply that the story of our heroes has not yet been concluded.

Since its release back in 2016, the show has been one of the most successful anime of recent years. It seems unlikely that the show will be canceled after Season Five. For now, it is more than likely that Bungo Stray Dogs will continue in the future. Still, an official announcement has not been made, and no release date has been given for a future season.
