The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 4 release date is finally on the horizon! Production of Donghua series (Chinese animated film) has been confirmed.
The news was announced during the Made by Bilibili 2022-2023 panel on October 29, 2022.
A key visual accompanied the announcement; You can see it immediately below.
This was just a brief revelation with no additional information (meaning the staff, cast and release timeframe are still a mystery). Still, the news is cheerful as the series has a loyal following.
Knowing the Chinese, the likelihood of the Donghua sequel appearing as early as January 2023 is tantamount to a postponement to an unknown date (which from experience can take up to 5 years).
As hope dies last, we’re assuming the release date will fit in the 2023-2024 timeframe.
