Dr Stone Season 4 Announced

The third season just concluded this year, and we already expected Dr. Stone season 4 to drop off soon. When we have a question about educational anime, of course, this popular anime will pop out of your mind. Moreover, with the setting taking all over the place in the world, there is no doubt that Dr. Stone is one of the best adventure anime this year.

It is no wonder that they already confirmed the fourth installment of the series. The announcement was made through the teaser trailer in the last episode of the third season. With that in mind, where will the series headed? Well, let’s talk about that.

Dr. Stone Season 4 Trailer

The last episode of Dr. Stone’s 3rd Season just premiered a week ago on December 21, 2023. After the credit, studio TMS Entertainment slips a clip about the upcoming fourth season of the series which was later posted online on the TOHO Animation YouTube channel.

As you can see, Dr. Stone season 4 will have the title “Science Future”. Looking at the manga, the crew will use way more advanced technology than they ever created. Hence, the name will make sense.

So, when will the fourth season of Dr. Stone premiere? Well, currently, there is still no news regarding the release date. But, based on the previous seasons, the series will come back after 2 years. So far, the gap between the first, second, and third seasons is two years after all, of course, excluding the special episode, Dr. Stone Ryusui.

So, which arc will Dr. Stone season 4 adapt? Looking back, they adapted the Age of Exploration Arc, Treasure Island Arc, and the prologue of the New America City Arc which runs from chapters 83 to 142 with a total of 59 manga chapters.

If we expect the same source material used in the fourth season, the last episode will end somewhere in chapter 200. Surprisingly, that chapter marks the end of the most intense battle arc in the Dr. Stone series. So, once again, the ending will have a nice cliffhanger.

On the other hand, with 30 chapters left in the source, the Japanese manga series created by Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi will conclude the anime adaptation with two plans in mind. Whether they want to make the season finale with a nice 12 episodes, or we will have the final movie like other popular franchises.

Dr. Stone Story

With the problem in Treasure Island solved, they finally go home and use their loot, a petrification device, to wake Tsukasa up from his cold sleep.

Now that they had already found platinum, they could produce limitless revival fluid. At last, Senku’s goal to revive Earth’s population will happen sooner rather than later. Yet, another problem is coming. 

The perpetrator who petrified humans millennia ago shows up once again. With their intelligence combined, they find out that their enemy comes from the moon. But, how do they act against someone in space? Moreover, with their technology, it is impossible for them even to start the mission.

Well, knowing Senku, he won’t give up even if it looks like an impossible. He once said, “Science is just a name for the steady, pain-in-the-ass effort that goes behind it.”. He boldly takes a small step and begins his plan for a moon-landing mission.

The last episode of Dr. Stone hints at the biggest mission they can ever imagine. With the enemy up above the moon, they have to make a working rocket engine to go there. It also means that Senku will once again wash us with his vast scientific knowledge.

Looking back, it is pretty nostalgic how he took months just to make an antibiotic in the first season. Now, some fans of anime will wonder how he can pull off such advanced technology in the Stone Age. But, well, Senku will always be Senku. Some way or other, he will figure it out.

The good news is, the staff already confirmed Dr Stone season 4 is on the way. Unfortunately, the news related to the upcoming season is still a mystery. But no worries, sooner or later, we will have news regarding that. Just stay tuned in to Animefleek for future anime updates!
