Mermaid story is always interesting. No, we’re not talking about Disney’s The Little Mermaid. We’re talking about Freeform’s Siren, and whether Siren season 4 will be released.
Many people are curious about this magical creature. Are they real or just a myth? And what about the story of mermaid who lives side by side with human, and of course there will be conflict (or love) that grows between them. Siren’s big storyline kind of reminds me of Disney (Tangled) and Pixar’s Luca, but Siren is the adult and gory version, of course.
Premiered in 2018 on Freeform, Siren set in a fictional town Bristol Cove in seaside Washington. The local legend says, the waters in the coast is home to Merfolk. And local people start to believe this, when a mermaid named Ryn appears in the land to find her sister Donna who is kidnapped.
As she mingles in human life, she makes friends and also involves in a romantic relationship with Ben and Maddie. Ryn is also surprised that Ben and Maddie do not hate on Merfolk, unlike other local people.
Siren is an American drama, fantasy, and thriller series created by Dean White and Eric Wald. The season 2 was released in 2019, and the third season was out the next year in 2020.
Siren gets 7.0 scores out of 10 in IMDB, while Rotten Tomatoes gives it 90% average audience scores.
Rumors are spread about whether Siren season 4 is going to be renewed or is it canceled. We will answer that here, so keep reading!
Siren Season 4: Renewed or Canceled?
In August 2020, Freeform Network stated that Siren season 4 was canceled after the success of its three previous seasons. The news was very shocking and disappointing to the fans. Many could not accept that they will not move forward with Siren season 4.
But then recently, Freedom Network made a huge announcement, only this time is a good one. They confirmed that they will continue with the season 4!
It was initially scheduled to be released in November 2021. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the release schedule needs to be delayed. Siren season 4 now is scheduled to be released on September 22, 2022.
Although it is pushed back so far away from the original release schedule, the fans are still super excited that at least there will be Siren season 4.
Since it is officially confirmed that there will be the next season, we can expect that the story will continue from where it left off in the last season.
In the season finale, we saw that the story is about saving the mermaid community and Hope from Tia, who tries to drive them away. However, Ryn and her big army managed to defeat Tia and Tia is killed, and Ben succeed in saving Hope.
In the season 4, it likely will focus on Ben’s past, and there will be more conflict and drama that will revolve around them.
Siren season 4 also hopefully will give us some answers that we have been questioning in the previous seasons.
Who Will Return in Siren Season 4
The main characters from the previous seasons are confirmed to return in Siren season 4. Those include Eline Powell as Ryn Fisher, Alex Roe as Ben Pownall, Tiffany Lonsdale as Tia, Rena Owen as Helen Hawkins, Ian Verdun as Xander McClure, Sibongile Mlambo as Donna, and Fola Evans-Akingbola as Maddie Bishop.
There are also supporting characters such as Chad Rook as Chris Mueller, Curtis Lum as Calvin Lee, Ron Yuan as Aldon Decker, and more.
As the story and the conflict develops, we can expect that there will be new faces coming in Siren season 4.
