Scripts were provided by Shinichi Inotsume and Shogo Yasukawa.

Two seasons were produced to date. The first season, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, aired in the Spring and Summer broadcast seasons last year. The season spanned 24 episodes. The second season, Food Wars! The Second Plate, aired in the Summer 2016 season, and spanned 13 episodes. A third season is on track for a Fall 2017 première.
