Golden Kamuy season 4 recently had a complete restart due to a delay that was put in place after the sudden passing of a key staff member, and now we’re getting to the new content. The season returned from the beginning on April 3, and the first brand new episode—the seventh of the season and 43rd of the series—since the delay featured two fresh cast members on Monday.
The latest cast additions include Akira Ishida as a mysterious gold panner named Heita Matsuda:

Here’s how Crunchyroll describes Golden Kamuy:
After the Immortal Sugimoto, AKA, Sugimoto Saichi, and the Ainu girl Asirpa reunited in the freezing land of Karafuto, Asirpa witnesses the death of Kiroranke and remembers the key to solving the mystery behind the missing gold. Sugimoto and Asirpa then renew their vows as partners. But none of this changes the fact that Sugimoto is under the 7th Division’s control. While they continue their conflict with Lieutenant Tsurumi, who gets news about Asripa being found, how will Shiraishi Yoshitake, Tanigaki Genjirou, Tsukishima Hajime, and Koito Otonoshin, all move next after the perilous journey they shared together? Meanwhile, the demon vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, Hijikata Toshizou, and his crew, who are competing against the 7th Division for the gold, continue to look for clues on the remaining tattoos. Also, the currently missing Ogata Hyakunosuke could also change the outcome of their progress. You won’t be able to look away from the continuing gold rush survival series that continues to take place up north!
