Production on a fourth anime season based on Wataru Watanabe's Yowamushi Pedal manga has been green-lit for a January 2018 premiere. "Le Tour de Yowapeda 2017," an event for the third season Yowamushi Pedal New Generation, made the announcement on Sunday.
In addition, the Yowamushi Pedal Re:Generation film will open in theaters in Japan in October. The film will incorporate footage from the third anime season with some new shots.
Animator Hiroyuki Horiuchi revealed on his Twitter account last month that he was "scheduled to work on the fourth season [of Yowamushi Pedal]."
The story of the original Yowamushi Pedal manga centers around Sakamichi Onoda, an otaku at Sōhoku High School. He loves anime and games so much, that he would ride his commuter bicycle to and from Tokyo's Akihabara shopping district in a 90-kilometer (about 60-mile) round trip over steep slopes after school. Onoda's life changes when he encounters his school's cycling team, and he ends up joining the competitive sport of bicycle racing.
The story of the third season is set after the previous two seasons and an August 2015 film, and after the previous third-year students have graduated.
