Bungo Stray Dogs Anime Confirms Season 4 Has Been Greenlit

Bungo Stray Dogs season 4

Bungo Stray Dogs season 4 is a go! Earlier today at an event for the Bungo Stray Dogs franchise, partially to celebrate the anime’s 5-year anniversary, it was confirmed that the anime will be returning for another season.

The main staff at Bones, the animation studio that produces the anime, will return for Bungo Stray Dogs season 4. This includes director Takuya Igarashi, series script supervisor and writer Yoji Enokido, character designer and chief animation director Nobuhiro Arai.

Cast members Yūto Uemura (Atsushi Nakajima), Mamoru Miyano (Osamu Dazai), Sumire Morohoshi (Kyōka Izumi), Kensho Ono (Ryūnosuke Akutagawa), and Kishō Taniyama (Chūya Nakahara) were on hand to celebrate the news at the event and are presumed to be returning for season 4 as well.

While they did release the above teaser image (by Arai), there is precious little information about the upcoming season – for example, premiere dates – so far. A new season has been greenlit, it will stream on Crunchyroll, and that’s basically all we know.

When we last left our characters at the end of season 3, which concluded in June 2019, they had teamed up with former enemies in order to defeat a truly terrifying villain. Atsushi and Akutagawa combined forces (literally!) in order to bring down the bad guy, and Chuuya got trapped in a novel. I don’t read the manga, so I have no idea what’s coming, and I’m very excited to find out! I’ve been waiting for news of season for since the end of season 3, so I’m extremely happy that they’ve finally confirmed that it’s happening.

The same event also debuted the English-subbed trailer for the upcoming live action Bungo Stray Dogs film BEAST, which is based on a light novel and imagines a scenario where Atsushi and Akutagawa switch organizations, with Atsushi as a member of the Port Mafia and Akutagawa joining the Armed Detective Agency.
