Black Lagoon Season 4: When Will It Return?

The fourth season of Black Lagoon is among the top-rated shows in its genre. Even though it’s been a decade, fans have been eagerly anticipating it. It’s been a long time since the last episode of this wonderful series premiered.

The Black Lagoon manga’s anime version was illustrated and written by Rei Hiroe. This is an ancient series that first aired on the internet back in 2002 as a serial.

Today, it’s still being published. For a long-running franchise, Rei Hiroe only put out 12 volumes between 2002 and 2020. For more information on why this is the case, continue reading the following section.

After that, Madhouse abandoned the series. Will there ever be a Season 4 of Black Lagoon? Is there a chance to watch it next year?

Is There Going to Be the Fourth Season of Black Lagoon?

It’s possible that Black Lagoon Season 4 will be a success, but the odds aren’t great. It’s a well-liked series, therefore Madhouse may gain profit from season 4. However,  It’s true that there are still a few things to work on.

Obviously, the first thing to look at is the original source. Twelve volumes have been released since 2002 by Rei Hiroe. The book’s chapters are still being put together. Manga is not in short supply, but there is a reason for it.

In the past, Rei Hiroe has taken various breaks. Firstly in 2010 then in 2018, respectively. In 2019, the author returned to the story with ten new chapters.
