Prior to announcing a renewal, production studios typically take into account a variety of financial and commercial metrics.

Financially, Yama no Susume Next Summit Vol.1 sold 1,368 copies in its first week, which is impressive considering it’s priced at 13k yen and the first four episodes are a recap of seasons 1-3 with minor cuts.

In general, Yama no Susume is one of the longest running slice of life animes, and despite premiering a decade ago, the series hasn’t lost its charm.

While the reviews, ratings and finances are mostly in favour, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.

Currently, Studio Eight Bit has two projects ( Shy and Laid Back Camp) scheduled for 3rd October 2023 and 2024 respectively.

Post the sequel, seasons three and four took four years to premier which appears to be the estimated time to create a new season.

Additionally, the studio has gained far more notoriety after the massive success of Blue Lock, which is a much more profitable venture when compared to Yama no Susume.

Nevertheless, Yama no Susume is a priced asset of the studio as it’s the only series to receive multiple seasons.

Source Material should not be an issue as there is still a massive chunk left to adapt for the creators, which can be a potential storyline for Yama no Susume Season 5. 

Hence, looking at the series’ popularity and the studio’s production capacity, Yama no Susume Season 5 should be on the cards.

All in All, if the series is renewed, we can expect Yama no Susume Season 5 trailer and Yama no Susume Season 5 release date by Fall 2025.
