Sadly, the fourth season of 'Fruits Basket' is unlikely to happen. Just like what its title says, season 3 is the "The Final" season of the anime. The anime series has already covered the entire source material. The manga started publication on July 18, 1998, and ended on November 20, 2006, after 23 volumes. Knowing that the anime has already adapted the entire plot within three seasons, do not expect to see season 4 anymore.
However, there is good news because a spin-off of 'Fruits Basket' is in the works.

Season 4 is unlikely to happen, but fans can look forward to the upcoming spin-off series instead.
Announced on June 2021, the Fruits Basket spin-off released in the winter of 2022. The spin-off is titled "Kyо̄ko to Katsuya no Monogatari" and focuses on Tohru's parents Kyoko and Katsuya.
The announcement was made via Anime's Twitter account. It says, "Fruits Basket upcoming anime project: "The Story of Kyoko and Katsuya" anime in production for 2022! (The format is not yet revealed) The story that focuses on Tohru's parents!"
Kyoko to Katsuya no Monogatari aired in February 2022 and you can watch it on Crunchyroll now.
In the season 3 finale, Tohru and Kyo start their life together in another city. Machi already has a key to Yuki's apartment. Rin cannot forgive for what Akito has done. Momiji expresses her desire to find someone like Tooru someday. Hatori wants to go on a vacation with Mayuko in Okinawa, and Shigure and Akito live together.
Life goes on for the Soumas and the other characters as they start a new chapter in their lives.
Since the third season has already covered the entire manga, there is no more story to adapt for season 4. But if the producers decide to bank on the anime's popularity and proceed with season 4, they will need to create a new story.
Tohru Honda is the main hero of the 'Fruits Basket series'. She is the only daughter of the late Kyoko and Katsuya, and she spends most of her time cooking.
