Scheduled to premiere in 2024, this new season of Black Butler is set to take fans on another extraordinary journey filled with mystery, supernatural encounters, and the intricate web of the Phantomhive family. Crunchyroll has already secured the global streaming rights for the anime, making it accessible to fans worldwide, except in Japan.

One of the most exciting aspects of this announcement is the return of the original voice cast.

Their stellar performances in the previous seasons added depth and complexity to their respective characters, making this news all the more thrilling.

The creative team behind this new season is equally impressive. Kenjirō Okada, known for his work on acclaimed series like “March comes in like a lion” and “RWBY: Ice Queendom,” has been entrusted with the directorial duties at CloverWorks. Joining him is Hiroyuki Yoshino, who brings his experience in writing and supervising scripts for previous Black Butler anime, taking charge of the series composition. Fans will be delighted to know that Yumi Shimizu, who contributed to the 2008 Black Butler anime as an episode animation director and key animator, will be the character designer for this new season. Ryo Kawasaki, known for his outstanding work on projects such as “Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia” and “To Your Eternity,” will compose the music for the series, setting the perfect tone for the dark and atmospheric world of Black Butler.
