This will most likely be the confirmed release window for the new season of the series, which will place it squarely in the Winter 2020 anime season. The series has yet to make an official announcement about this Winter 2020 release window, so until it confirms the listing found in this recent magazine take it with a grain of salt. But given how the series is teasing a major announcement on August 18th, fans could see a confirmation sooner rather than later along with more details about its release such as returning cast and staff or new additions.
