"Steven Universe" Season 4 is currently on a hiatus, but many fans were surprised when Cartoon Network recently announced the premiere of Season 5. As The Mary Sue notes, the network revealed that the fifth season will premiere on May 8.

The announcement on the show's return came with a short "Steven Universe" Season 5 clip. The publication reports that the promo was a mix of recaps along with several teaser shots of scenes from the upcoming episodes.

Since the announcement of the "Steven Universe" Season 5 premiere date, many fans commented that CN may be close to ending the show. After all, even series creator Rebecca Sugar previously admitted that she had "big plans" for the season whether it is the endgame or not.

Many fans felt that "Steven Universe" Season 4 ended abruptly and the network is trying to force the new episodes onto Season 5. However, Polygon has reported that CN recently clarified that the announced premiere date is for the remaining episodes of Season 4, not for Season 5.

According to the publication, a representative from Cartoon Network explained that they do breaks in-between episodes of "Steven Universe" Season 4, but they do not do that in seasons. The representative shared that the reason behind it is because "the programming schedule is a unique one."

"Steven Universe" Season 4 returns on May 8 on Cartoon Network.
