Black Butler may not be as massive as One Piece or Naruto but carries the same kind of popularity. The last release of any animation video of the series were two episodes OVA of ‘Book of Murder’ in October 2014 and a movie ‘Book of Atlantis’ in 2017. Since then there has been no development in the production of the Black Butler Season 4.
Before the release of the movie, ‘Black Butler: Book of Atlantis (2017)’ the production house, A-1 Pictures had shared their plans for the future of the anime series. They said that the popularity of the series will always make it a success and they will never hesitate to adopt any chapter of its manga into the anime.
Currently, the Blue Sect arc is ongoing in the manga which is very popular and is one of the best-sellers. Maybe with the completion of the arc in the manga, the A-1 Pictures will adopt it into the anime series.
Although there had been no announcement about the release of the new season of Black Butler, there are possibilities of the series getting a sequel. The “Black Butler season 4” may adopt the Blue Sect arc which introduces a new and charming character to the series, Othello. Othello is a Grim Reaper who is part of the Forensics Division of the Grim Reaper Dispatch.
Othello is one of the very popular characters from the ongoing manga series. He does not like to fight and has not even customized his Reaper Sythe. Othello has confessed in one moment that he has no confidence in his physical abilities and hence wants to work as a Forensic Scientist. Must watch the Black Butler trailer below.
