The fourth season of Sailor Moon anime series titled Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon SuperS (美少女戦士セーラームーン SuperS Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Sūpāzu?) was co-produced by TV Asahi, Toei Agency and Toei Animation and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara. It originally aired on TV Asahi between March 4, 1995, and February 2, 1996. The "SuperS" in the title is pronounced sūpāzu "supers" (as in more than one "super") in the series eyecatches and typeset "SuperS" in its logo.

This season was produced concurrently with the manga's fourth story arc, Dream, by Naoko Takeuchi. Because of the series popularity, Toei Animation started adapting Supers into an anime before it was finished. As a result, there are significant differences in the thematic tone between the two. Unlike the darker-themed manga, the anime is characterized by an increase in sugary cuteness and the absence of the four Outer Senshi, making it the least popular of the five seasons.[1]

By the time SuperS was released, the original audience of the first season had largely grown out of Sailor Moon franchise. The story's focus fell on Chibiusa (Rini in the English versions) since it was believed that the new, younger fans of Sailor Moon could more easily identify with her. However, Ikuhara's use of weighty subtexts and fairy tales were not appreciated by the audience.[2] In this season, Chibiusa gains her own cat guardian, Diana; although in the manga, Diana had first appeared in the second story arc. Chibiusa is visited in her dreams by a being called Pegasus who seeks her help in escaping the Dead Moon Circus led by the evil Queen Nehellenia and Zirconia who are searching Earth for him and the Golden Crystal.

This season was dubbed, uncut, into English in 2000, though two characters had their genders swapped: Fisheye was changed from male to female, while Zirconia, considered a monstrously hideous creature, was changed from a female into a male.

Not included in the English dub was an unnumbered, double-size special episode that originally aired between episodes 131 and 132 in Japan.[3][4] The special, which started in the show's usual half-hour time slot but ran for a full hour, consisted of three self-contained mini-episodes which told side stories independent of the continuing plot of the SuperS series proper.
