“Dragon Ball Super” had its latest episode released more than a year ago and Toei Animation has since been quiet about its continuation. But the rumor mill is not without the claims that the anime series would return with new episodes in 2019. The good news is the franchise continues with a new installment this week, it is just not for the anime series.

‘Dragon Ball Super’ 2019 rumored return: Anime series supposedly coming back in July

Several months ago, a couple of popular anime and manga news sources claimed to have insider reports that “Dragon Ball Super” is returning in 2019, specifically in July. However, the month is halfway done as of this writing, and the continuing silence on the part of the producers might be an indication that the said rumors will not pan out.

A couple of online sources said last March that “Dragon Ball Super” will return in the summer of 2019, but companies officially affiliated to the making of the series was also quick to shut those reports down. Toei Animation told IGN that the rumor 2019 comeback is not true and reiterated that it has never announced anything about releasing new episodes for the series. Funimation echoed Toei’s statement telling ComicBook that such claims were inaccurate.

‘Dragon Ball Super’: Is it renewed or canceled?

Toei Animation has been clear about not having plans yet about the return of “Dragon Ball Super” as an anime series. But fans should not worry yet because, technically, the studio also has not canceled the show. In fact, to celebrate the franchise’s 20th-anniversary last year, the movie “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” was released in various countries and was confirmed to be a sequel of the anime series.

This means that the “Dragon Ball Super” franchise is ultimately not over yet, despite the uncertainty of its return on TV. Meanwhile, the “Dragon Ball Super” manga has also been having a regular monthly release narrating Goku and Vegeta’s very daunting task of defeating a new antagonist named Moro. The point is there are several options how the “Dragon Ball Super” anime series could continue in terms of the plot. Unfortunately, fans have to be even more patient about it.
