After the third season has finished airing, many of the fans are craving a sequel. So, will there ever be A Certain Scientific Railgun Season 4 to fulfill the demands from the fans and also continue its reign?
As of now, we haven’t received any official statements from the author or the studio regarding A Certain Scientific Railgun Season 4. We don’t know whether the anime series will be renewed or canceled. However, we might have the chance to see A Certain Scientific Railgun Season 4, but not in the near future.
The main reason is that the source material is currently not sufficient enough to go for another run. The anime series in total has covered the first thirteen volumes of the manga, while the manga itself is currently sitting at the sixteenth volume. The manga is only slightly ahead of the anime, as the manga is just one arc ahead of the anime. That said, we would have to wait until the manga is way ahead of the anime, so that there will be enough source material for a season renewal.
