Disney is famous for its incredible animated series, which people of different ages belove. And recently, the streaming platform has come up with its latest addition Amphibia. But after Disney’s animated series, Amphibia, wrapped up its third season, fans are clamoring to know the series’ future. So will the streamer return with Amphibia Season 4? Well, fans are curious as it’s almost been a year, since they last saw their favorite character embarking on her latest adventure. While waiting for the official announcement is difficult, the creator’s statement hints that Amphibia Season 4 won’t return this year. Let’s see whether or not the next run of the show is on the cards.
Inspired by creator Matt Braly’s childhood memories and family trips to Bangkok, Disney’s Amphibia chronicles a fearless teen Anne Boonchuy’s adventures. Well, the independent and kind girl is suddenly transported to a fantastical world of amphibians. Her magical transportation lands her in a rural marshland where frog people live. Anne meets enigmatic pollywog Polly Planter, young frog Sprig Plantar, and their grandfather Hop Pop there. While stuck in the magical world, Anne learned the true meaning of friendship and embarked on her journey to explore Sprig’s world.
Amphibia Season 4: Is It Renewed?
Unfortunately, the third installment of Amphibia was the final installment of the animated series franchise. The creator Matt Braly had previously confirmed that the third season would mark the end of this saga. He told ComicBook they had always envisioned the show as a three-season arc. In fact, it was their plan from the beginning, and they started Amphibia’s production by keeping it in mind. In August 2020, Matt also did an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, where he unveiled that Amphibia was a 3 act story and he had structured it that way.
Well, the team had already crafted the final dialogues of their lead characters way before the pilot season premiere. So it didn’t make sense to stretch the show by bringing Amphibia Season 4. Surprisingly, the team never had a guarantee that they would get three seasons. The show initially started broadcasting on YouTube before Disney picked it up. Matt also stated that they never expected Disney would come forward to show its interest in their show. Matt said working with Disney Channel and its streaming platform was a great opportunity.
However, they never planned to continue with Amphibia Season 4. Matt also cited that three was the lucky number for the show, as they got three girls, three races, and three gems. So the three seasons arc felt right to wrap it up. But there was a catch as they had to focus more on the narrative momentum to wrap each character’s arc neatly and beautifully, Matt told The Wrap.
Will There Be Any Chance Of Amphibia Season 4?
Sadly, there’s little to no hope that the fourth season of Amphibia will return to fans’ screens. Way before the series finale, the storyboard artist Alex Swanson confirmed on Twitter that season 3 would mark the last season of the series. He stated: “Amphibia’s final season starts this Saturday,” suggesting its March 2022 release. Later the press campaign dashed the last hopes for Amphibia Season 4. In the press campaign, Matt stated how the final episodes “All In” and “The Hardest Thing” were longer than their past episodes. And how they had put these two together to create a perfect series finale.
However, the last episodes of VOD faced delays, and soon Matt revealed that it was their original plan to release the VOD later. This is because Matt wanted to keep the hype for Amphibia. He said the team had put so much effort and loved into creating and executing the finale. In fact, the level of animation and the voice actors’ performance were incredible. They really brought something special, and he was proud of his team’s work. But there’s no chance the team will return with Amphibia Season 4.
They Can Return With A Spinoff
As per Matt, the series will never explore Amphibia Season 4, but there’s a chance the Amphibia franchise will get one or more spinoffs. Matt told The Wrap he would be glad to revisit the characters where they left off in the final outing. He would love to explore the different story arcs if it keeps the spirit of it intact. Further, he explained that Disney wanted to cover some little spinoffs or shorts of Amphibia, and they had returned with plenty of successful creations.
These include Teen Girl In A Frog World (2019), Wild Amphibia (2019), Disney Theme Song Takeover (2020-2021), Chibi Tiny Tales (2020-2022), and Vlogs From The Bog (2021). So if the streaming platform pitches a spinoff, then Matt and his team will indeed return. Further, Matt told ComicBook that they are open to sequel stuff too. Although it feels the saga is over, that doesn’t mean they won’t return in comic book form. Well, Marcy’s journal is expected to release soon, giving details about the character’s off-camera life.
So he believed that Anne’s world would be revisited, perhaps in comic book form. But currently, he’s not into exploring Amphibia’s world as Matt wanted to take a break from writing. The creator further revealed that he was going back to his 2015’s creation quite often to finish the series. So now, he wants to take a break before jumping on another project. Speaking of his next project, Matt revealed that he wanted to work on a limited series or movie. He had a million ideas to kick start with, and he may return with a romantic storyline.
