Right now, it is unconfirmed how many episodes DanMachi Season 4 will have. However, it’s widely expected it will be a single-cour run of 12 or 13 episodes.

While the official episode count for DanMachi season 4 is yet to be confirmed, each of the previous three seasons (four if you include Sword Oratoria) has been either 12 or 13 episodes long.

Another small piece of info pointing toward a single-cour run is the fact that HIDIVE has announced the English dub of DanMachi Season 4 will be released in Fall 2022. This could be designed so the dub is released once the official subtitled run has concluded, as is common with some dub releases.

There have been some rumours that DanMachi Season 4 will be a split-cour season with around 22-24 episodes. However, no evidence has been provided for these rumours, so they should be taken with a pinch of salt for now.

What Will DanMachi Season 4’s Episodes Cover?

It’s expected that DanMachi Season 4 will cover the light novels 12, 13 and 14, after season 3 adapted novels 9-11.

DanMachi Season 4 is also being referred to as the Labyrinth Arc which covers those light novels, with a particular focus on volume 14.

There are some rumours that DanMachi Season 4 may also cover volume 15, which is a smaller story mainly involving the main characters reminiscing on their journeys so far.

Whether volume 15 is adapted may come down to how many episodes are confirmed, but that also may serve as a useful start to any potential next season.

Will There Be a DanMachi Season 5?

Currently, there is no word on whether DanMachi will return for a fifth season once season 4 has concluded.

It’s uncommon for next seasons to be announced during a current series’ run, unless two seasons are announced together, such as with Shield Hero Season 3. Usually, seasons are announced just over a year before the new season airs.

There tends to be at least one year’s gap between DanMachi seasons, so we wouldn’t expect any announcement on DanMachi Season 5 during or immediately after DanMachi Season 4.

DanMachi fans may have to wait for news, but that doesn’t mean another season isn’t on the cards, as season 4 has proved!
