"Steven Universe" Season 4 took a long break in September that left fans concerned about the fate of the series. There had been rumors that the Cartoon Network animated series has been canceled, but the release date of the remaining episodes will be this month.
As reported by Geekiary, "Steven Universe" Season 4's double-episode titled, "Gem Harvest," will air on Nov. 17, starting at 7 p.m. A preview of the episode has been published and according to its synopsis, Steven is visiting the barn in autumn and there, he will meet a new stranger. According to theories, Steven will free a new Harvested Gem that will surprise the existing ones. It was said that Pearl Amethyst, and Peridot will be shocked upon seeing this new gem, while Garnet and Lapis Lazuli will be pleased.
This fan theory from Reddit also suggests that the new harvested gem will at first react violently toward Steven, but eventually, the gem will be nice to the person who freed her. It remains to be seen if this theory checks out, but fans can find out this week when the new episode of "Steven Universe" Season 4 airs.
Meanwhile, there are now reports suggesting that Steven's adventures with the gems will end after season 5. According to latest rumors, there will still be one more season left after "Steven Universe" Season 4 and it would be the end of the animated series. Is "Steven Universe" heading for a cancellation? Series creator Rebecca Sugar may have just given a hint.
In an interview with Newsarama, Sugar seemingly confirmed that there will be a "Steven Universe" Season 5 and when asked if it's the final season, she answered, "I have big plans for that season! Endgame or not I'm shooting for the moon, I'm going to write us into a serious corner!" It's unclear whether or not the fifth season will be the last hurrah. For now, fans should just continue to enjoy the remaining episodes of "Steven Universe" Season 4.
