The third season 3 of DanMachi, It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, has concluded but will the anime return for season 4 and if so, when?
It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, also known as DanMachi, has been a fan-favourite anime series ever since it first debuted in the mid-2010s.
Season 3 of DanMachi concluded in mid-December on Crunchyroll, but will the series return for season 4 and if so, when?
Will there be a season 4 of DanMachi?
- Season 4 of DanMachi, It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, has been officially confirmed and a teaser trailer has been released.
On January 31st, it was announced that the fan-favourite anime will return for at least one more adventure. However, this didn’t come as a surprise to many fans of the series.
Despite season 3 not meeting many fans expectations, DanMachi remains extremely popular around the world. The series is currently scoring a 7.4/10 on IMDB, 7.64/10 on My Anime List and 4.6/5 on Crunchyroll.
Thankfully, there is also plenty of source material from the light novel series left to adapt to more seasons of anime. According to Monsters & Critics, the season 3 finale covered up to volume 11 of the original series. The good news for fans is that DanMachi light novel series has just published its 14th volume.
An official teaser for season 4 was released alongside the announcement; see below.
DanMachi season 4: Release date
Alongside the announcement that DanMachi will return for season 4, it was revealed that the anime will premiere in 2022. However, a more specific release date was not confirmed.
Whilst there was a four-year gap between the first two seasons, the second premiered in July 2019 – just five months after it was announced.
On the other hand, season 3 debuted in July 2020 which was eight months following its official renewal.
Assuming that season 4 will have a similar production schedule to season 3, there is a good chance that DanMachi season 4 will debut in July 2022.
However, an OVA entitled ‘Is It Wrong to Crave Hot Spring in Orario? -God of the Hot Spring Forever’ is scheduled to release on April 28th.
