The returning of Bungo Stray Dogs for a third season was no doubt an event for the fans. Yet now you likely wonder, whether there will be a Season 4 of the anime? Honestly, few believed that the current, 3rd season, might happen someday. Nonetheless, as many of you have already witnessed, the event had finally happened. In our opinion, Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 is due to happen, and below we are ready to explain you why do we believe so.
Of course, you know that Bungo Stray Dogs is based on a Japanese manga series of the same name. Not only that the manga is still ongoing, the last volume is scheduled to premiere on May 1, 2019, after the 3rd season started. Therefore, even if there is not enough source material for the 4th installment right now, the missing volumes will be available in the near future.
The next thing we should take into account is that Bungo Stray Dogs Season 3 premiere has received the universal acclaim among the viewers. On , the current season holds a score of 8.35 based on about 4,000 votes. For comparison, both previous seasons of the anime have attracted less viewers' attention, 7.82/10 and 8.3/10, respectively. As a result, the current season looks more successful compared to its predecessors.
The previous season of Bungou Stray Dogs was a success, as for the BD/DVD sales. 3,393 items have been sold between June 27 - July 3. If the upcoming sales are above this line, or equal, no doubt, the studio Bones should pick up Bungou Stray Dogs for at least one more season.
Summing up, the future of the anime looks promising. We tend to believe that Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 happens, if the positive dynamic will be continued during the current season. But still, we should wait for the official confirmation from Bones. As soon as the studio announces the renewal, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 release date
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 is yet to be announced, yet we don't rule out the renewal, and have even described some points that point out the possibility of renewal. However, in the case of the positive resolution on a next season, it would likely take place not earlier than in 2020, in the case of a single cour, yet if the current season is set to have 24 episodes, we doubt that the premiere could happen earlier than in 2021.
