Is Kipo & The Age of Wonderbeasts Returning for Season Four?

If you’re a fan of Kipo & The Age of Wonderbeasts like me, than that question has already entered your thoughts. Kipo & The Age of Wonderbeasts season three is now available to stream on Netflix, but of course us fans are already hungry for more. Afterall how can you blame us for wanting more of a good thing? So let’s discuss everything we know, some great moments in season three and maybe roar like a Mega Jaguar a few times.

In case you’re new to the surface or just never heard of the show allow me to break it down. Based upon a discontinued comic, Kipo season debuted January 2020. The show depicts a post-apocalyptic world where humans are forced to live underground and animals have morphed into mutated beings called mutes. Kipo who has both human and mute DNA wishes to achieve peace between the species; is the only one who can achieve peace. Season three picks up with evil Dr. Emilia who has the ‘cure’ for mutes, which reverses their mutations turning back into animals. All in her quest to get rid of mutes and put humans back on top (pun intended). It’s up to Kipo, Wolf, Benson, Dave and Mandu to stop her from hurting their friends.

So the bad news? Season three is the final season. If you watched the final moments of season three you pretty much grasped that, but it was also announced as the final season. Curse Netflix’s three season obsession. Even though Kipo will always be in my heart, season three wrapped up everything in a satisfying manner. Dr. Emilia forever trapped by that creepy and gooey mute so as a result both species learned to live peacefully on the surface. In the most emotional epilogue of my life, we’re time jumped five years to see a future where humans and mutes coexist on the surface. What’s that saying if it’s not broke don’t fix it? Although, Kipo creator Radford Sechrist admitted he would love to see the story continue with movies. A follow up movie? I’m here for it!

Think of the possibilities a movie can go! We can examine backstories of beloved characters like Wolf or Benson. Or given the fact we’re set in a peaceful future, Kipo with her Mega Jaguar powers will keep the peace; we could have a whole new adventure. Whether we get new content or not, I love this show so much and what it represents. Happy streaming!
