Anime Next Seasons

Will There Be Oregairu Season 4? (Updated in 2024)

The announcement of a fourth season of the adored anime “Oregairu Season 4” has delighted fans. After three successful seasons (in 2013, 2015, and 2020), the question lingers: will there be more? Let’s dive into the possibilities and what we know so far.

The Story of “Oregairu”

This popular anime is based on the light novel series “Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru,” written by Wataru Watari and illustrated by Ponkan8. Fans love the quirky, relatable humor and the way “Oregairu” challenges typical slice-of-life anime tropes. The story follows Hachiman Hikigaya, a cynical high schooler with a blunt and pessimistic view of the world. Forced to join the Service Club by his well-meaning but equally blunt teacher, Hachiman finds himself working alongside the aloof and academically brilliant Yukino Yukinoshita and the bubbly and optimistic Yui Yuigahama. Together, this unlikely trio tackles the problems of their classmates, from awkward confessions to complex misunderstandings. Their adventures are filled with witty dialogue, hilarious misunderstandings, and moments of genuine growth, making “Oregairu” a standout in the genre.

Behind the Scenes

“My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU” has enjoyed three anime seasons, each helmed by a different director. Ai Yoshimura directed the first season, while Kei Oikawa took the helm for seasons two and three. Animation studios Brain’s Base (season one) and Feel (seasons two and three) brought the light novels to life.  We’re still waiting to see if these studios and directors will reunite for a potential fourth season.

Airing History

The first season premiered in Japan in April 2013, and fans got a second season in April 2015. After a longer wait, the third season aired in July 2020 and wrapped up the main storyline. That leads to the big question: will we get an “Oregairu” Season 4, Episode 1, or another way to continue the story?

Is Oregairu Season 4 Possible?

Unfortunately, an official announcement about Season 4 is still pending. The main challenge is that the anime has already adapted all the available source material from the light novel, which ended in November 2019.

Despite this, the show’s popularity soared. Each season enjoyed fantastic Blu-ray sales, suggesting a new season could be profitable. However, the lack of new source material is a significant obstacle. Unless the author decides to create a sequel or spin-off series, Season 4 seems unlikely.

What if I Want More Oregairu?

If you’re hungry for more of the “Oregairu” world, the light novels offer the best route. Since the anime adaptation covered all the volumes, starting with Volume 1 gives you a richer experience of the story. The light novels delve deeper into the character’s thoughts and motivations, and you’ll also find scenes and storylines that weren’t included in the anime.

Staying Updated

I’ll keep this post updated with the latest news. You can also follow the official “Oregairu” Twitter account or Crunchyroll for any announcements regarding a new anime project.
