The first season of this drama mainly revolves around the lives of three people who are the lead roles of the story.
The first one is Eun-seom, he was born as a cursed child in the land of Arthdal, the curse that he was carrying made him and unlucky and disaster bringing individual of Arthdal, in the starting, it was shown how his mother suffers hardships while saving him and Arth from the bad lucks that were occurring due to him.
Then there was a girl named Tan-ya. She too was born with the same curse of bad luck as the latter. However, the circumstances are a little bit changed this time as she is not an ordinary resident of Arthdal like Eun-seom, rather than that, she was the heir of one of the Tribe “Wahan”. While she too is suffering from hardships but she aims to become a wise and strong politician.
The last one of the leading characters is Ta-Gon, a brave young warrior who has been serving as a legendary war hero of Arthdal. His only ambition is to become the first king of Arthdal.

I think this much information of the last three seasons of Arthdal chronicles is enough for you, and you must not know more as it will spoil all your suspense if you haven’t yet watched the previous episodes.
Production of Arthdal Chronicles Series
As for the production of this series, let me tell you that it is one of Netflix’s best action ancient fantasy series belonging to the South Korean Television under the production banner of Studio Dragon and KPJ. The first season of the series was produced by Kim Won Suk, but he left the studio soon after, and now the show has been producing under the observation of different directors.
Cast and Crew
When it comes to the cast of this show, the filmmakers have carefully chosen the most suitable actors who perfectly fit in their respective characters without any flaw. It must be mentioned here that choosing the cast was one of the most difficult tasks for the directors as this was the first Korean drama of history which was reflecting their ancient legends. Therefore, a big amount of time was dedicated only to find the perfect actors.
All the actors, especially the three lead roles have done their job quite well enough and have brought life to the series with their lively talent and skills.
Though there are lots of actors working in this series that are worth mentioning, but all of them can’t be explained in complete detail because there is a vast list of characters, therefore, we’ll be only discussing the four of them who worth the most.
The first lead role of Eun-seom is being played by a young Korean actor named Song Joong-ki, after that, the role of Tan-Ya has been played by Kin-ji-Won. Then comes the character of Ta-gon which is played by Jang Dong-gun. In the end, comes Kim Ok-Vin who has played the role of Tae Al-ha in the series.
Is there going to be a Season 4 of Arthdal Chronicles?
Now let’s come to our main topic, whether there is going to be a season 4 of Arthdal Chronicles or not? And if there is, then why hasn’t the release date been announced yet.
As soon as season 3 ended, curiosity in people took a peak regarding its season 4, and eventually, rumors spread around that there is not going to be any other season. However, thanks to the makers, they soon cleared all the confusion of these rumors by announcing that there is indeed going to be the 4th season after all. And why wouldn’t there be, you can’t expect the directors to leave the whole story in the mid, because you may remember that season 3 ended with most of its questions still unanswered, so the directors have to come up with another season for sure as the story was more than over and yet to be revealed a lot.
Now the new question which has just arisen is that even though if there is going to be a season 4 of this series, when will it be released? And whether the product has been started yet or not? Well, though the makers assured that they will work on the next project in the future, however, they never revealed whether if they had started the production already.
Yet, according to some resources, news had been leaked earlier than 4th season was likely to be released sometime near July 2020, and the rumors were spread that the informer belongs to tvN, still, there were no strong evidence and the fact that it hasn’t been released already proved that those rumors were false and we would have to wait a little bit more for it.
But don’t lose hope because we are certain that makers would have started the production right by now and we’ll be receiving the good news any time in next year which is not quite far away. So you can say that Arthdal Chronicles season 4 will be available on Netflix in 2021 for sure.
Possible Story Plot for Arthdal Chronicles Season 4
Though some people think that the series is loosely based on “game of throne” and that’s why they are expecting things that have already been occurred in the latter. But that is just a theory and yet no one, even the directors themselves hadn’t announced such things so you must not be expecting something like that.
The only reason why it is being resembled with “games of thrones” is its strong relationship with the ancient fantasy which is also the main theme of games of the throne. Other than that, it’s a completely different story and you shouldn’t be relating it to it otherwise you won’t be much pleased with the plot coming up next as you would be expecting something else in your mind.
Now when it is asked what would be the plot story of the 4th season, it’s always difficult to answer such questions because all directors hate to reveal their story before release and that’s why the plot of Arthdal season 4 is still kept in secret. However, by analyzing the previous season especially the third one, we are able to make certain assumptions, though we don’t guarantee them to be hundred percent correct but it’s possible to hit the closest plot. So according to our assumptions. The story of the 4th season would potentially be continuing the theme of the power struggle in Arthdal. Many mysteries will be solved and many secrets will be revealed. It is also possible that they will focus on showing the reaction of Taehella’s and Mihol’s reaction to Ta-Gon becoming king and Tanya’s struggles to save her beloved home place. Or they might bring someone forth who would uncover the dark secrets of Ta-Gon. One can never guess.
Will there be the Same Cast for Season 4?
As you know the casting of a movie or series majorly depends upon the likes and dislikes of directors. And if a director has been changed or replaced, there is a very low chance that he will carry on with the existing cast. The same circumstances happened with Arthdal Chronicles. Its first director finished his partnership with the Dragon studio which eventually led the company to think about giving the position to someone else and so they did. But it must be mentioned here that both directors did work with utter perfection and brought us a masterpiece of all.
Now we were talking about the cast of Arthdal Chronicles and whether they will change the remaining cast or not? Well let me tell you, don’t worry. There is not going be to be such a thing. Though they are going to add some more characters in the series for the new season and so they will have to cast new actors for them, but as long as it is about the lead cast of the drama, there are not going to be any changes.
So we’ve reached the end. I hope you enjoyed your reading above and that now you’ll be more satisfied regarding season 4 of Arthdal chronicles than you were before. We know it’s a little hard for the fans to wait anymore longer for the season to release but trust me, you’ll enjoy it more as your wait will bring more fruitiness. Though we’re still not sure if the series will be released next year or not as it can take 2-3 years for the production of the series but at the same time we are hopeful that maybe directors would give us a surprise any minute by now.
