When will the lives of the eccentric and wealthy Gemstone family return for another season? Here is everything we know about
The Righteous Gemstones Season 4. 

Attention fans! It looks like surprises for HBO users can’t be stopped anytime soon as the much beloved black comedy crime television series, The Righteous Gemstones,” which was created by Danny McBride for the HBO channel and streaming platform, has been renewed for another season earlier than what everyone was anticipating, which was approved before the third season’s final episode aired on July 30, 2023.  

Due to this, the excitement among the loyal viewers who just started binge-watching this series can’t be contained, as is evident from the overall reception it has received so far! For the third season, Rotten Tomatoes reported a 100% approval rating with an average rating of 8.0/10, based on 10 reviews.

The website’s critical consensus reads: “The Righteous Gemstones has its mixture of broad comedy and genuine pathos down pat, chapter, and verse, and it preaches a riotously funny gospel in what might be its darkest installment yet.” Metacritic scored 83 out of 100, based on 6 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.” 

So, after this great announcement, if you are wondering about the potential release date, plot, and cast, among other details, for the new season of The Righteous Gemstones.

We at Web News Observer have compiled all the necessary details that will help you know about the future schedules of this series in order to avoid further confusion. Here is everything we know so far about HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones Season 4.

The Righteous Gemstones Season 4 Potential Release Date: When will it premiere on HBO?

After all, it’s not a secret anymore that The Righteous Gemstones will be back for a fourth season! As HBO announced recently, it has renewed the critically acclaimed comedy series ahead of its Season 3 finale, which isn’t surprising as The Righteous Gemstones is currently averaging 4.9 million viewers and growing, according to HBO, drawing more viewers than Eastbound and Down (2009–2013) and Vice Principals, which averaged 4.2 million viewers and 4.8 million viewers, respectively. 

Hence, we think that The Righteous Gemstones Season 4 is anticipated to debut in 2024 because the previous two seasons aired in back-to-back years. However, the schedule could be less solid this time around because of the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Of course, this is just our prediction at this moment, and more details will be released later, but right now, we are hoping that things are going as per the planned schedule and won’t be delayed any further.

Until there is some sort of confirmation, we’ll just have to patiently wait and see what happens next! “Get ready for more of the hilarious adrenaline ride that is The Righteous Gemstones, said Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President of HBO Programming and Head of HBO & Max Comedy Series. “As this truly biblical season comes to a close on Sunday night, I am delighted to announce that we are picking up a fourth season.”

Take a look at the official renewal announcement as shared on the HBO Twitter handle among their followers, quoting, “Ask and you shall receive. #TheRighteousGemstones has been renewed for Season 4.”

The Righteous Gemstones Season 4 Plot: What to expect?

If you recall, creator Danny McBride, who also stars as the eldest son of Jesse Gemstone, shared his plans for the series’ future with Collider. “I definitely would love to do more,” he said. Further adding, “For me, I feel like one of the major weaknesses about television … is that a lot of creators use soap opera plotting, where they’re constantly teasing what’s gonna happen and they just keep pushing the ball down the field, but never really give you the answers, never really give you the closure, and never really pay off the things they’re promising because they all just want you to come back for more.”

Even though not much has been confirmed about the fourth season, we are certain that The Righteous Gemstones will continue to explore and tell the story of when the spoiled Gemstone children finally get their wish to take control of the Church, they discover leadership is harder than they imagined and that their extravagant lifestyle comes with a heavy price. 

This critically acclaimed comedy series will persist in following a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work. Left flailing in the wake of their patriarch Eli Gemstone’s semi-retirement, as in Season 3, Jesse, Judy, and Kelvin are in charge of the vast Gemstone empire. When their long-lost cousins come out of the woodwork, the siblings must work together if they want to keep the Gemstone legacy intact. An irreverent look at the lives of holy rollers, The Righteous Gemstones explores the salacious world of those who offer salvation… to the highest bidder.
