Where Does Black Butler Season 4: Public School Arc Fit into the Timeline?

Black Butler season 4 will continue adapting the manga instead of rebooting from scratch. It will initially focus on the manga's Public School arc, as the official teaser confirms.

Black Butler's releases have been a bit messy. Season 1, which first came out in 2008, started adapting the manga from the beginning, but strayed in the last few episodes, giving its own ending.

Black Butler season 2 was a direct continuation of this original ending. It introduced a new young lord and a new butler before Ciel and Sebastian even made an appearance.

This was easily the least well-received Black Butler show. The series, OVAs, and movie that came after ignored everything that wasn't canon and adapted individual manga arcs.

An earlier trailer confirmed that the 2024 series will do the same, adapting the Public School arc of the manga.

In the first trailer, Queen Victoria expresses her concern because several students refuse to return home from the prestigious Weston College.

To better investigate, Ciel decides to pose as a student and infiltrate the school to find out the answer from the inside.

While all Black Butler anime so far were produced by A-1 Pictures (home to Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, 86, and the ongoing Solo Leveling anime), CloverWorks is now taking up the mantle.

CloverWorks has recently worked on some very popular and beloved anime such as Spy x Family and Bocchi the Rock!

Moreover, the neo-Victorian aesthetics of the studio's other recent work, Shadows House, suggest that they could make Black Butler look amazing.

The series will be directed by Kenjirou Okada who is known for many great works, including March Comes In Like a Lion (2016) and RWBY: Ice Queendom (2022).
