Let us look into our core problem – Will there be Sao season 4 – YES or NO?
As addressed at the beginning of the article, Sao season 4 will not be returning anytime shortly because many other series are standing in queue for their release and the team of Sword Art Online is not showing any visible interest in making Sao season 4.
And we are also aware that there are no social media updates from the team or the broadcasting partner, Netflix about the renewal for Sao season 4.
But when we look at the dates of the release of different seasons of Sao, there is a gap of a handful of months. Thus, there is still hope for the release of Sao season 4. If we move forward with the same calculation of the dates, we can expect that the Sao season 4 can be accessible most probably in the year 2022 on the Over The Top platform, Netflix US.
Thus, we have to wait for nearly 5-6 months to know the updates of Sao season 4 neither from the side of the Sao anime core team nor the broadcasting partner, Netflix.
