Golden Kamuy has been one of the many franchises hitting with new episodes this Fall, but unfortunately due to a major member of the staff passing away the fourth season of the series will be delaying its next several episodes for the foreseeable future. With Satoru Noda's original manga run of the series coming to an end earlier this year, fans were very excited to see the fourth season of the anime continuing Sugimoto and Asirpa's hunt for gold. The first few episodes of the new season have been as big of a hit as expected, but now those behind the season have suffered a terrible loss.
The official Twitter account for the series has announced that a main staff member for Golden Kamuy Season 4 has passed away on November 1st. The team behind the anime have not revealed who this staff member is (likely to give the family time and privacy to grieve), but have also revealed that Episodes 43-49 will be delayed until further notice as a result. There will be further details about the release of the episodes at a later date, and you can find the announcement below

How to Watch Golden Kamuy
If you wanted to catch up with the newest season of the series with the episodes that have aired so far, you can currently find Golden Kamuy's new season (along with the previous three seasons) now streaming on Crunchyroll. As for what to expect, Crunchyroll teases the anime as such, "Separated from Sugimoto, Asirpa now travels toward the Russian border, focused on discovering more about her and her father's involvement with the coded tattoos. But Sugimoto is determined to find and protect Asirpa! Along the way, he'll discover new people, new cultures rich with history, and an unforgiving terrain. Will Sugimoto and Asirpa survive their journeys and reunite?"
The first few episodes of the new season have been introducing some new characters to the fold as the gold hunt gets more intense, but unfortunately this passing has left a major mark on the production. We wish to send our thoughts and condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of the staff member at this time. ComicBook.com will keep you updated on the release of Golden Kamuy Season 4's future episodes when news arrives.
