‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ or ‘Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen’ is a romantic comedy anime based on the Japanese manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. The show follows Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya, two of the most popular students at the renowned Shuchiin Academy. While the latter comes from a wealthy family, the former is an idealist who has worked hard to make it to one of the best schools in the town. The highly competitive duo are attracted to one another and end up falling in love despite their inherent competitive nature.
Although they are considered the perfect couple, Miyuki and Kaguya are reluctant to open up about their feelings as confessing love first is looked down upon. First released on January 12, 2022, the show is widely considered one of the best rom-com anime of all time.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 4 Release Date
‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ season 3 or ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War – Ultra Romantic’ released on April 9, 2022, and concluded a few weeks later on June 25, 2022. The third installment comprises twelve episodes, each with a runtime of about 23-25 minutes.
As far as the renewal of the show is concerned, here’s everything we know so far. Just after the release of the Season 3 finale, it was officially announced that a new production project is underway, and more details will be revealed in the near future. However, the announcement should not be seen as a renewal as it can also be a film or a new spin-off series. The latest installment has garnered excellent ratings on most online platforms, which is rare for a rom-com anime.

The show has regularly made it to Crunchyroll’s most popular shows for the Spring 2022 season. Previously the creators have been quick to renew the series, and new seasons have been released relatively quickly compared to other anime. The latest installment has covered up to 14 volumes of Aka Akasaka’s namesake manga series.
Currently, 26 manga volumes are in circulation, so there is enough source material for two or even three more installments. Looking at the aforementioned factors, it seems highly likely that the show will be renewed soon. Assuming things do pan out favorably, we can expect ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ season 4 will premiere sometime in 2024.
