Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese manga series written and drawn by Sui Ishida. The manga was also published in Shueisha’s seinen manga magazine Weekly Young Jump from September 2011 to September 2014, and it was also collected in fourteen tankobon volumes.
Pierrot Studios made a 12-episode TV anime series based on the book. They released a total of four seasons of the anime series from 2014 to 2018.
Talking about the story, the anime series follows the life of Ken Kaneki, a college student who has a deadly encounter with Rize Kamishiro, his date, who turns out to be a ghoul.
After being taken to the hospital in critical condition, Ken finds out that he had surgery that turned him into a half-ghoul.
This happened because Rize’s organs were transplanted into his body, so he is now like a normal ghoul who needs to eat human flesh to stay alive.
He is also being taught by the other ghoul how to deal with his new half-ghoul life. And this is how the series goes on to show Ken’s whole adventure as he learns to live as a half-ghoul.
The Expected Storyline of the Upcoming Season
Since there isn’t much chance of Tokyo Ghoul Season 5 happening, and we’ve already said that the creators didn’t have enough new material for a fifth season, we don’t know what will happen in Season 5 of the anime series. This is because it would need a new story written by Ishida, but there isn’t one yet.
Since there are no more manga stories to adapt for Tokyo Ghoul Season 5, it is likely that the creators will have to come up with a whole new story if Season 5 does happen.
But Tokyo Ghoul was one of the most-watched and most-loved anime shows of all time. Since the official team behind the show hasn’t said anything else, fans can guess that there won’t be any more seasons.
Who Will Be in Season 5 of Tokyo Ghoul? (Cast)

Where Can I Watch the Tokyo Ghoul Anime?
All four seasons are available to stream in the US on Funimation with English dubs. You can also stream the first three seasons on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
In North America, the streaming rights belonged to Funimation, in South East Asia to Medialink, and in Australasia to Madman Entertainment.
Is There Really Going to Be a Season 5 of Tokyo Ghoul?
As soon as Season 4 came out, it started getting bad reviews, and the show became controversial. Everyone thought that season 4 of Tokyo Ghoul would be the show’s downfall and that viewers wouldn’t like it, but they were wrong.
The fans liked the show, and it still gets as many viewers as it did before. But somewhere, the producers know that season 4 will be the last, so they crammed all 179 chapters into only 24 episodes.
Season 4 wasn’t as good as the other seasons, so fans didn’t like it and asked for season 5. But a lot of people think that season 4 was the best and that the producers shouldn’t make any more seasons.
From the point of view of the story, the show ended in a way that made us all die of happiness. Even Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima have a happy ending, which is something we all want.
Not only that but the Ghouls and humans have gone to their own worlds and are living in peace. With everything going on, I don’t think we’ll be getting Tokyo Ghoul season 5 any time soon.
Tokyo Ghoul’s future doesn’t look good enough for us to watch, and we haven’t heard anything official about season 5. All of this leads us to believe that Season 5 won’t happen. From this YouTube video, it doesn’t look like the release date will be announced.
Trailer for Season 5 of Tokyo Ghoul
There isn’t a trailer for the fifth season of Tokyo Ghoul, and since there probably won’t be a fifth season, we probably won’t see one either. Since there’s nothing to announce, there’s no need for a trailer.
When Will Tokyo Ghoul Season 5 Come Out?
Reports say that the chances of Tokyo Ghoul Season 5 are very low, so it’s possible that there won’t be a fifth season. There is no new material for the fifth season of the show, and there is also no official release date for the fifth season.
Since there are also no signs that Tokyo Ghoul Season 5 will continue or not, fans will have to either wait for official news or accept the bad news that Season 5 will not happen.
Season 1 of the anime series came out on July 4, 2014, and ended on September 19, 2014. The second and third seasons, called “Tokyo Ghoul A” and “Tokyo Ghoul: re (I),” came out on January 9, 2015, and April 3, 2018, respectively. On October 9, 2018, the fourth season, called “Tokyo Ghoul: re (II),” also came out.
