Whenever one hears of anime it’s mostly Japan that comes to the mind. Surprisingly enough, it’s not just Japanese anime killing it on Netflix. Chinese animes have also found themselves doing very well on the streaming giant. 

One such anime is Scissor Seven. The series so far has released 3 seasons. The story follows a hairdresser named Seven, who aspires to be an assassin. He starts off as a cheap contract killer. The problem is, he often gets in trouble while completing a task. The cherry on top – Seven suffers from amnesia. From aiming to be a murderer to miserably failing at it, never would have anyone imagined a comedy series based on such a story. The anime is doing very well among fans and critics. 

Fans are eager to see what more the unique comedy has to offer. But, due to the lack of any response from Netflix regarding further seasons fans seem to have lost hope. But we have some good news for fans to look forward to.

Will there be Scissor Seven Season 4?

Scissor Seven is yet to be officially renewed for a fourth season. We may see additional seasons in the future, according to director He Xiaofeng’s WeChat post. The director also hinted at the possibility of the anime going on for a total of 10 seasons before ending for good. 

Also given that we were left on a cliffhanger in Scissor Seven Season 3 and the popularity of the show both domestically and internationally, it is most likely to be renewed for a fourth season and Scissor Seven Season 4 may finally see the day of the light. However, in the absence of an official announcement all we should do is to wait and see what the future holds for the series.

Scissor Seven Season 4 Release Date

Even if Scissor Seven is renewed for a fourth season, fans will likely have to wait for a while. The show is usually not available on Netflix until after it has aired in China. Following the timeline of the show, it should release sometime in 2022 in China and subsequently on Netflix in 2023. But this is a wild guess, the final decision is, obviously, the makers’.

What will happen in Scissor Seven Season 4?

Scissor Seven Season 4 is most likely to focus on the consequences of Seven’s poisoning. The wanted assassin may lose all memories of his Chicken Farm companions unless he magically recovers. Even if Seven gets to escape without losing his memory, Manjusaka and Shimen are clearly hell-bent on catching him, placing him and Thirteen in extreme danger. As a result, another attack is almost certain to occur soon. In any case, as everyone’s favorite incompetent hairdresser-turned-assassin tries to carve out a reputation for himself, there will, undoubtedly, be more of Scissor Seven’s trademark wit.

Scissor Seven Season 4 Cast

In the English dub of the show, comedian and actor Ronny Chieng plays aspiring assassin Seven. Chieng has been a correspondent on The Daily Show since 2015 and has been in films such as Godzilla vs. Kong, Shang-Chi, Crazy Rich Asians, and The Legend of the Ten Rings.

Jas Patrick is set to reprise his role as blue chicken best friend Dai Bo, with Jill Bartlett rounding out the cast as flying chicken Xiao Fei.

Thirteen, Chairman Jiang, and Mad Bark should also be played by Jennie Kwan, Karen Huie, and Lawrence Saint-Victor, respectively.
