On Monday, the official website for the Golden Kamuy anime revealed that they are casting Rikiya Koyama as Niheiji Nozawa, the postman from Hell for the fourth season of the anime.
This season originally aired on April 3. Golden Kamuy season 4 originally began airing on October 3. The anime successfully aired episodes 1-6 but was forced to stop the broadcast.
The sudden pause was because of the passing of an important staff member on November 1.

Crunchyroll describes the story as:
