Watership Down Season 4 Release Date
Watership Down season 4 is not probable in the future because of the loss of the reputation of the purpose for which it was being made by the makers originally which was the entertainment of the children. As the seasons got renewed, the story got even darker and darker which was just to add some twists in the series but that content was affecting the mind of the children badly. The series also lost the interest of the audience after season 3 and got canceled by the makers officially. So it would be better to enjoy the previous season of this series without false hope of the release of season 4.
Watership Down Season 1-3 Recap

But the life doesn’t go smooth for animals as well and also their Warren gets endangered by a Warren named Efrafa governed by General Woundwart. Since they cannot just move from here to there for their safety, they decide to struggle with the dangers and troubles that come between the rabbit family and their safety. All that matters for them now is survival among those difficulties.
Watership Down Season 4 Story
The Watership Down series is not going to be renewed since the series was canceled after the third season way back in 2001. The makers already had come up with new stories in the second and third seasons. Their experiments with the story went wrong and the series lost its reputation as an ideal show for kids’ entertainment. That’s why since all these years, there is not even a rumor about the release of the first season. Everyone belonging to the fanbase of Watership Down has left the hope for the renewal of the show for the fourth season. Though it may seem dull, that’s what the truth is and the only thing that can revive the series for the fourth season is the innocence that was in the first season of the series.
