Genius Season 4: Release Date, Cast, And More Updates

On March 25, 2017, the franchise known as Genius had its start. There was a lot of overlap between the premiere dates of the first two seasons. A significant time passed between seasons 2 and 3. Season 4 of Genius is now on the way after being revealed in December 2020. There has been no official confirmation of a break between seasons 3 and 4. In addition, the creators have been mum on key information regarding their next project. The following season will also have a new set of executive producers. Executive producers for this season reportedly include Reggie Rock Bythewood and Gina Prince Bythewood.

Genius Season 4

The groundbreaking stories and compelling plotlines in the Genius series have won widespread acclaim. The audience is always captivated by the drama. In addition, it does not provide a rosy picture of the character but rather shows them to be fallible individuals. The show’s protagonists aren’t perfect; they make errors, too. What sets it apart is this.

Rotten Tomatoes gives the Genius film series a 70% approval rating. In addition, it has an IMDb score of 8.2 out of 10. These kinds of ratings make it clear that the franchise has a bright future. However, the granddaughter of Aretha Franklin voiced her displeasure with the third season for leaving her out of the production.

What to Expect From Genius Season 4

The whole story of Aretha Franklin’s life and career was told in the show’s third season. The third season explored Aretha Franklin’s talent as a musician. Cynthia Erivo’s amazing struggle and unparalleled career, as well as the immeasurable influence she has had on music and society, are shown in the season finale’s last scenario, which aims to portray the queen of the soul’s complicated journey to success.

According to rumors, Martin Luther King Jr. will be the focus of Season 4 of the show Genius. Considering how little we know about the future season, the show may opt to bring on writers. And a diverse cast to dispel the myth that King’s legacy would be lost in the making of the film. However, Malcolm X will also be included this season, since his story is intertwined with Martin Luther King Jr.’s in the context of the American Civil Rights Movement.

While King promoted racial equality via peaceful protest, Malcolm X pushed fiercely for black strength, identity, and self-determination (as stated in the official Genius Season 4 summary). King and Malcolm X became icons of the civil rights movement and the struggle for racial and economic justice, respectively, with the help of their strong spouses, Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabazz.

Genius Season 4 Release Date

The fourth season will focus on prominent black American civil rights figures including Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

Although we don’t know when the fourth season will be available, we may make an informed prediction based on the release schedules of the previous three seasons. The first season of Einstein aired in 2017 from April to June. The second season of Picasso premiered in the spring of 2018. The release of Season 3: Aretha was pushed back to March 2021 owing to the pandemic. Given that the first three seasons all aired in the spring, we should hear about the premiere of season four very soon.
