Has Blue Exorcist been renewed for Season 4? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Kingdom is an epic, action-packed anime that’s been running for an impressive number of seasons now. If you’ve been following along with this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Blue Exorcist about?

Season 3 of Blue Exorcist is based on volumes 10-15 of the original manga, known as the Shimane Illuminati arc.

The arc is famous among Blue Exorcist fans for plenty of twists and turns, including a big revelation that at least one of the True Cross students could be a mole for the titular sinister organisation.

We’ll also see a good amount of Rin and Yukio’s relationship develop too, but given we know this anime has taken liberties with the source material, we’ll have to wait and see regarding how strictly this one follows the manga.


Has Blue Exorcist been renewed for season 4?

At the time of writing, Blue Exorcist has not been renewed for a fourth season. Given how massively popular the show has become since the first episode, it makes sense for more to be produced but at this time, we don’t know for certain.

Generally, Studio VOLN would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it, fan reaction, and then looking at the drop-off rate.

Furthermore, manga sales and how much of the manga has been adapted are also taken into consideration. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a final decision is made about the show’s future.

So far, Blue Exorcist’s Shimane Illuminati Saga has had a fantastic reaction from audiences and critics alike, with most commenting on its excellent handling of the source material.

Given the way this show is set up, there’s strong potential for another season to get green-lit. However, it’s still too early to say for sure just yet.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 4 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 4 at this point, given Studio VOLN  have not confirmed the news and this one remains in the balance.

What we do know is that there are plenty of other arcs to adapt, including the Exorcist Exam, Aomori Hachirotaro and Blue Night Investigation arcs to name a few.

It’s likely that should this be renewed, the anime will continue following the story from the manga and adapt more of this epic drama.

We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
