Naruto's Awaited Return: Unveiling the Saga Behind the Delayed 4-Episode Anime Special

It's been a while since the last time fans of the hit anime series Naruto could tune in and watch a new episode of Masashi Kishimoto's legendary ninja classic, but that's no longer the case.

In a highly anticipated announcement, the official Naruto website revealed four new episodes of the Naruto anime were in the works. The first episode was set to air in September 2023, but the month ended without releasing the new episodes.

To build up anticipation, reruns of the original Naruto series began broadcasting in Japan in July. However, the Naruto Production Committee suddenly decided to postpone the release of the new episodes just a few days before the first episode was expected to air.
