JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has confirmed it will be proceeding with a new season taking on Stone Ocean! JoJo's Bizarre Adventure previously announced a special event gathering the voices behind the five titular JoJos in the anime thus far, and it got fans hoping that this would mean a new anime announcement was on the way. While fans had suspected this would be an adaptation of the Purple Haze Feedback story left over from Golden Wind's events, it was actually confirmed that the anime will be coming back for a new season with Part 6 of Hirohiko Araki's original manga series, Stone Ocean!
For those who might not be familiar with the story of the Stone Ocean, it follows Jolyne Cujoh being framed for a crime that she didn't commit, with her boyfriend essentially pinning a murder on the daughter of Jotaro. "Blessed" with a Stand in Stone Free, a Stand that allows Jolyne to transform into a series of strings while also delivering a torrent of machine-gun-like punches, the main protagonist must now navigate her way through a deadly prison in order to not only save her own life but the life of her father who is currently under siege by a plan that was formulated by Dio Brando.

The story of Stone Ocean will definitely be one of the most insane arcs of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure since the anime first started following the Joestar family from the beginning of Phantom Blood, housing some unbelievable Stands that are wielded by both heroes and villains alike. Stands such as Foo Fighters, Kiss, Marilyn Manson The Debt Collector, Diver Down, Weather Report, and Bohemian Rhapsody are only a few of the beings that Jolyne will encounter, with all of them having the most bonkers powers in comparison to the Stands that we've seen in the series so far.
With Stone Ocean's confirmation, there are still two other manga story arcs left to adapt in Steelball Run and JoJolion which will take the series in a completely different situation, following along with Joestars that don't exist in the same reality that we've come to know via the initial seasons of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
