Bungou Stray Dogs is a quirky superhero series that never ceases to amaze and has a more substantial fan base than any other anime. The series creates a mood that compels you to keep watching with its fantastic wise guy characters, such as Osamu Dazai, Atsushi Nakajima, and many others.
The enigmatic manga creator Kafka Asagiri began the Bungou Stray Dogs story in late 2012, and the manga series has been going strong ever since. The brilliant animators behind My Hero Academia’s adaptation, Studio Bones, first aired it in 2016. The franchise has one film and three seasons.
Here is the scoop on whether Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 is in production and when it will release.
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4: Plot
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 3 ended around Chapter 53 of volume 13, which completes the entire “Cannibalism Arc” of the manga. The “Cannibalism Aftermath Arc” appears to be next, which will involve Edogawa Ranpo attempting to free Doppo Kunikida from prison after a Rats in the House of the Dead member frames Doppo Kunikida for murder.
While the “Cannibalism Aftermath Arc” will only last a few episodes, the “Hunting Dogs Arc” will dominate Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4. The Armed Detective Agency appears to have been unreasonably classified as terrorists, so a military unit, the Hunting Dogs, goes after the members.
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4: Cast & Crew
It’s a clever idea for Bungou Stray Dogs to name its characters after well-known literary figures. Its captivating plot has never failed to keep the audience entertained. Yuto Uemura and Mamoru Miyano will reintroduce the world to our main characters, Atsushi Nakajima and Osamu Dazai.
In addition, the voice cast for Bungou Stray Dogs includes:
- Kensho Ono as Ryunosuke Akutagawa
- Yoshimasa Hosoya as Doppo Kunikida
- Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Junichiro Tanizaki
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Ranpo Edogawa

Many significant characters are likely to return once the show gets formally renewed. We can’t say much about Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 because we don’t have much information about the story, the cast, or the characters. We’re hoping more details will be available soon.
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4: Release Date
The official anime Twitter account announced that Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 is in the works and will premiere in January 2023. Along with the announcement, a fantastic new teaser visual was also made public, showing Atsushi fighting mysterious new opponents.
We don’t yet know the exact release date or how many episodes there will be, but just like the first three seasons, we anticipate Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 to have 12 episodes when it premieres on Crunchyroll.
In addition to the visual teaser, a trailer for the new season provides a closer look at characters like Fyodor, Dazai, Ranpo, and many more. The next chapter of the manga’s story will be exciting to follow, especially in light of how diverse the previous seasons of the anime have been.
Bungou Stray Dogs has stumped us with its ability to keep innovating with never-before-seen abilities and villains overflowing with devious plans that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat, so with a fourth season officially set to come out soon, die-hard fans can rest easy.
