Golden Kamuy has aired its first episodes of the new season, but unfortunately following the death of a key employee behind the series, the anime has announced that future episodes of the new season will be delayed for the foreseeable future. With Satoru Noda’s original manga run of the series ending earlier this year, fans were excited to see the new season begin as Sugimoto and Asirpa’s pursuit of the gold continues. The first episodes this autumn have been well received, but now, unfortunately, there has been a great loss to the staff behind the series.
The official Twitter account for the series has announced that a principal staff member for Golden Kamuy Season 4 went away on November 1st. The team behind the anime has not revealed who this employee is (likely to give the family time and privacy to grieve), but have also revealed that episodes 43-49 will be delayed until further notice as a result. There will be further details on the release of the episodes at a later date and you can find the announcement below

If you wanted to catch up on the newest season of the series with the episodes that have aired so far, you can currently find Golden Kamuy’s new season (along with the previous three seasons) is now streaming on Crunchyroll. As for what to expect, Crunchyroll teases the anime as such, “Separated from Sugimoto, Asirpa now travels towards the Russian border, focused on discovering more about her and her father’s involvement with the coded tattoos. But Sugimoto is determined to find and protect Asirpa! Along the way, he will discover new people, new cultures rich in history and an unforgiving terrain. Will Sugimoto and Asirpa survive their journeys and reunite?”
