Has Sword Art Online been renewed for season 4?

At the time of writing, season 4 of Sword Art Online has not been officially confirmed by A-1 Pictures; however, we are expecting a fourth adventure khổng lồ be produced.

The reason for our optimism is a rather simple one; the franchise remains extremely popular with fans và the original manga series has not yet been entirely adapted.

This new story arc, Unital Ring, is a direct sequel to the Alicization narrative & will most likely be the focus for the fourth season.

A-1 Pictures director Manabu Ono has already said that the studio is “planning to lớn adapt the entire Sword Art Online series” – suggesting that all canon material will eventually be adapted.

Sword Art Online season 4: Potential release date…

As the anime has now been renewed, a release date for Sword Art Online season 4 has not been revealed; however, we are expecting that the ‘Unital Ring’ arc won’t premiere until at least 2024.

The problem with predicting a potential release date for Sword Art Online ‘Unital Ring’ is that it all depends on when Kawahara can complete the light novels.

At the time of writing, five volumes have been published in Japan, with the third volume scheduled khổng lồ release in English in April 2022. Under the assumption that this arc will also have 10 volumes total & that Kawahara can produce at least two every year, the series still won’t be completed until quận 4 2023 – và that’s at the earliest.

However, there is hope for fans that the fourth instalment could be produced as another split-cour season, similar to Alicization, with possibly three unique parts.

This would mean that we essentially get three ‘mini-seasons’ every 12-18 months that will continuously adapt new volumes of the light novels until the series is completed.

Unfortunately, production on a fourth potential television season could be demoted down the priority list, with A-1 Pictures focusing on the Progressive film series, see below.

On November 8th 2020, it was announced that there would be an anime movie adaption of Aincard, the first arc from the series, was in production.

The movie is an adaptation of the six-volume light novel series and would be titled ‘Aria of a Starless Night’.

Sword Art Online: Progress movie ‘Aria of a Starless Night’ premiered on October 30th in Japan, on December 3rd in North America, & December 9th in Europe.
