Plot for the season 4 of the Wakfu series
Wakfu: The Animated Series is quite a big hit among the audience which makes them even more eager about when the fourth and final season of the show will release. Fans of the show are really waiting to know the release date especially after the kickstarter campaign being a success. In the first 3 seasons we get to see that the show is about a 12 year old boy Yugo, who goes in search of his parents along with his group of friends, who call themselves as The Brotherhood of Tofu. The third season of Wakfu: The Animated Series ends with Yugo and Oropo competing in a duel, when Eva and the kids arrive at the same time inorder to create more drama in the episode. Although, not much has been disclosed about the plot we are hoping that the makers answer the few unanswered questions in the show, since it ende with loose ends.
There has not been any news announced regarding the release date for Wakfu season four because raising funds have become a problem. Even after raising so much from their kickstarter campaign it doesn’t cover all the costs. The pandemic has also made things difficult for the makers of the show. There is no guarantee that there will be a season four for the show. Fans of the show are hoping it doesn’t get cancelled. We will have to wait until the makers of the show make an official announcement.
