The fans have been waiting for a proper adaptation of Berserk for quite a while now. When there were finally some chances for it, the series went on a hiatus. Ever since then, the fans are getting desperate to see Berserk Season 4. Over this time, a lot of rumors circulated on the internet that the anime will return with its following installment. However, it didn’t happen yet. Will the fans ever be able to see the next season of the anime? Here are all the latest details.

Berserk Season 4: Renewal Status!
The second adaptation of the manga that premiered in 2016 received a lot of criticism from the fans for the style of its animation. The fans preferred the iconic animation style that was used back in 1997. As a result, both the seasons of the anime series got low ratings, but their viewership was great. Berserk is a legendary manga and has sold more than 40 million copies by January 2016.
So, it is obvious that the readers will certainly follow the anime adaptation. However, after the criticism, the makers are pretty tight-lipped regarding the future of the anime. There were a lot of rumors that Berserk Season 4 will return very soon with its old iconic animation style. However, none of them turned out to be true so far. The makers of the anime series have never renewed the show officially for its fourth season.
Do The Makers Have Enough Source Material?
The manga series of Berserk has been running for more than two decades. The last time the fans watch this anime, it only reached halfway through the Hawk of the Millennium Empire arc. And that means the makers have almost half of the source material for the anime adaptation. They can make several seasons of the legendary series. If Berserk Season 4 happens. It is likely that it will continue the current arc and also adapt the previously skipped chapters. Currently, the makers more than enough of the manga chapters to create the following season of the anime.
Berserk Season 4: Will The Anime Return?
There is still a lot of ambiguity regarding the return of the anime. More than three years have been passed, but the makers haven’t renewed the anime series. However, the fourth season of the series is still in demand as the anime-only fans are demanding closure on the story. Plus, the makers have enough of its source material as well. Therefore, now the entire decision is up to the manga’s author and the animation studios whether to make Berserk Season 4. If the fourth season of the anime is on the cards, then the fans will most likely hear its announcement this year.
