After the striking performances of the first three editions of Black Lagoon, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the fourth instalment. It’s been an excruciating wait of seven years and the fandom is pretty disappointed as there hasn’t been much talk about its renewal. So, will there be a fourth instalment to this amazing series? Here’s all the latest information that we could gather.
What’s the show Black Lagoon about?
Black Lagoon is a Japanese manga anime series that premiered on April 9, 2006. The show is a remake of an action manga series of the same name by Rei Hiroe. In 2006, Madhouse Studio adapted the storyline and released three seasons of the anime along with numerous OVA episodes. Black Lagoon is one of the most popular action manga shows of recent times. Upon its arrival, it received an immaculate response from the audiences and critics alike.
What about the renewal status of Black Lagoon season 4?
Though the anime got positive response, it had its own flaws as well. While some viewers enjoyed the show inevitably, some complained about its low animation quality. Besides, there were several fan services between action sequences, which many spectators found irritating and monotonous. Despite these flaws, the storyline of the show was epic and ever since the third series hit the screens, fans are awaiting the release of the fourth edition.
However, Black Lagoon has not been greenlit for a fourth edition. But again, the production team hasn’t cancelled the show. So, at this point of time, there’s no certainty whether the show will be renewed or cancelled. Adhering to the fact that it’s been seven years and still there haven’t been any official updates from the makers of the show, there’s a bigger possibility that the show will be cancelled. Whatever it is, we will keep you updated. Stay tuned!
Is there enough source material to produce Black Lagoon season 4?
No, there isn’t enough source material to produce season 4. As aforesaid, the show is based on a book of the same name. The author has published 11 volumes with more than 100 chapters. The first three instalments of the series encompassed the chapters till the ninth edition. Now, the makers are left with only 2 more volumes, which definitely isn’t enough. To create season 4, they would need at least one more volume. Stay tuned for more updates!
Will Black Lagoon season 4 happen?
All the previous seasons of the manga series gained a positive critical response, and aside from that, its viewership was also decent. It holds a great score of 8.05 and ranked #135 in popularity on MAL. Though the previous three seasons were a super hit, the big question remains still: will Black Lagoon season 4 happen? As mentioned earlier, it’s been 7 years and there still haven’t been any potential revelations from Madhouse or the show developers.
The main reason behind the delay is, of course, the source material. Plus, the seven-year hiatus of the anime has also become a matter of concern. Therefore, the chances for the renewal of Black Lagoon Season 4 seem pretty thin, as of now. Let’s see what the future of the series beholds!
