Typically, viewers relate anime to Japan. Yet following the anime popularity among streamers of all age groups, nations like France have also started producing their original anime. Wakfu is one such French anime that is inspired by a video game of the same name. Wakfu had its initial run in 2008 and went on releasing two more installments after receiving favorable reviews from audiences worldwide. Its third chapter arrived in the fall of 2017 for French viewers and was later aired seven months later on Netflix in 2018. The anime television series was lauded for its gripping story, quality animation, and solid characterization. In June 2020, Ankama, the anime’s official studio confirmed that a fourth part is in the works. However, since then, fans are earnestly waiting for its next edition which has been continuously facing delays due to several reasons. So, what does the anime future hold? Is there still a possibility for Wakfu season 4 or is it canceled? Find out everything that we know so far about Wakfu Season 4 from its release date to the plot and more?
When is the expected release date for Wakfu Season 4?
In June 2020, the creators launched a fundraising campaign for season four. Despite that, the anime got stuck in financial troubles with a halt in production globally making things worse for the series. That said, as of now, it is not clear when would the anime return for its possible fourth installment. Therefore, at this point, your guess regarding the date of the premiere is as good as ours. With that, we can say that a season four is still a long, long way off with a potential 2024 release window.
The first seasons are 26 episodes long, while its third season has a shorter episode count of 13. Its prior installments are available to stream on Netflix and Crunchyroll with a subscription. Netflix acquired the rights to the anime in 2014, and it made the anime’s fanbase grow immensely. It is expected that the future round of episodes could be viewed on the streaming platform after its initial release in France.
The Possible Plotline of Wakfu Season 4
Wakfu tells the story of a 12-year-old, Yugo, who embarks on a journey to find out his birth parents. Yugo possesses supernatural abilities that he uses to discover truths behind the town of Wakfu. Season 3 saw the protagonist close to his mission, so perhaps season four is likely to focus more on the character’s backstory and how he meets his parents while learning more about his past. Considering that Wakfu is not based on any written material of any sort, it is very hard to see where the anime will lead in season four. But, we are certain that the creators have a clear idea of what direction the future plot will take. Additionally, one thing is sure the anime will include adventures, drama, fantasy, thrill, and more similar to its last editions. Perhaps, the anime themes would be developed in ways never watched before.
The anime features Fanny Bloc, Adeline Chetail, Thomas Guitard, Patrick Bethune, and Jeremy Prevost as its lead voice actor. In addition, it has a different cast for its English dubbed editions. The voice actors’ performance have contributed significantly to the anime’s success.
Is there any Trailer for Wakfu Season 4?

Although the footage does not give away any details, it does a good job of piquing our eagerness to see more of Yugo’s epic journey.
