Golden Kamuy adapts Satoru Noda's historical adventure manga, which began in Young Jump magazine in August 2014. Shueisha shipped the 27th volume on September 22. VIZ Media licensed the manga in English in October 2016 and will release the 24th volume on December 21. The manga has a cumulative 17 million copies in circulation.

The three seasons produced by Geno Studio aired in Spring 2018, Fall 2018, and Fall 2020, each running for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed all three seasons with subtitles and an English dub, respectively.

Golden Kamuy ranked first in the 9th Manga Taisho rankings, received the Grand Prize in the 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, and placed seventh in the male readers' division in the 2018 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! rankings.

amazing news, golden kamuy is such a gem and despite its relative low popularity around these parts, it getting a FOURTH season shows that at least somewhere, it's properly appreciated.

i am worried though about the move to a new studio and more importantly, a new director.
it may have not had absolute top tier visuals but it always felt consistent and very well put together pacing and style wise, hopefully none of its charm and brilliant execution of all of the show's different and unique parts, would end up taking an hit from this change.

Geno Studio doesn't even have anything on their plate, yep bankruptcy incoming.
If only the director could have gone to brain base too.
On the contrary, they seem pretty busy. Nanba posted on Twitter that they just couldn't do the fourth season since they just didn't have time to work on it.

This is good news, probably one of the only series that keeps consistent throughout

YES! This is such good news. So glad to see this continue. Just recently bought ALL the manga in basically one go. Haven't yet caught up but now I'm very motivated to do so.

Let's GOOOO! The 3rd season was so good and now the 4th one is coming. This show should never end.

In all seriousness, tho. Expected nothing less.

According to this tweet by the old director, Geno Studio aren’t doing it due to the schedule to fitting . But I didn’t think geno where doing anything new atm unless they turned it down due to the schedule itself not being what they would like

FUCK YES man keep the Golden Kamuy content coming. Hope Brains Base keeps up the good work that Geno Studio gave us.
