Black Butler is returning for a new anime series, and to celebrate, the first trailer and poster for the new episodes have been released! The Black Butler TV anime series has aired for ten years.
Despite numerous OVA specials and even a feature film in the years following, fans of Yana Toboso’s original Black Butler manga had hoped for a true return from the anime. Thankfully, that long wait will soon be over, as a Black Butler revival season is in the works for a 2019 release!
When Crunchyroll took the stage during their special panel at Anime Expo 2023 to promote all of the new anime coming to their streaming service soon, they revealed that a new season of Black Butler is now in work for a release in 2024.

This is the ideal time to catch up since the series is being hailed as a continuation rather than a fresh start. The first two seasons of Black Butler are now available on Hulu (and all three seasons are available in Funimation’s library), and the Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic movie is now available on Crunchyroll.
The following is how the series is described on Crunchyroll’s official website:
“Ciel Phantomhive is the most powerful boy in all of England, but he bears the scars of unspeakable suffering. Forced to watch as his beloved parents were brutally murdered, Ciel was subsequently abducted and violently tortured.”
“Desperate to end his suffering, the boy traded his own soul for a chance at vengeance, casting his lot with the one person on whom he could depend: Sebastian, a demon Butler summoned from the very pits of hell. Together, they’ll prowl the darkest alleys of London on a mission to snuff out those who would do evil.”
