Free! is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroko Utsumi and Eisaku Kawanami, produced by Kyoto Animation and Animation Do, and written by Masahiro Yokotani.
It is a contemporary adaptation of the Japanese novel High Speed!, which is written by Koji Oji.
The series has an excellent storyline and has run for 3 seasons. Season 1 aired in 2013 and the last season premiered in 2018. Fans are now eagerly waiting for Season 4 to drop soon.
Season 4 Arrival
As soon as the third season of the series was completed, it was declared that the show will have another season. Everyone is now waiting for the fourth installment of the television series. The new season was supposed to release this year with the 2020 Summer Olympics which was postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The Summer Olympics will now happen in July 2021 and the next season of the series is also expected to release in July 2021. However, there is no confirmation yet. All the 3 seasons of the show are available on Netflix to stream and the series holds an overall rating of 7.4 on IMDb.

New members are being added to the Iwatobi swim team. The third season is more about securing a future, so it seems like anime fans are in for Olympic swimming references with the new Free! movie.
The only mystery is whether the new film will be a plot-setter for Season 4 or it will dive right into the meat of the plot. Similar to how the 2017 movie Free! Take Your Marks! lead up to the events of Free! Season 3: Dive To The Future, the 2021 film is likely to set up the circumstances for Free! Season 4.
Watch out for updates on the upcoming season of Free! and stay tuned with us for latest updates on TV shows/movies.
