The Shop Tsutaya page for Jigoku Shoujo's omnibus volume titled Kachou Fuuketsu lists that the series will get a new anime season. It is slated for Summer 2017.

Jigoku Shoujo is an original anime produced by Studio Deen. Three seasons were broadcast in Fall 2005, Fall 2006, and Fall 2008. A manga version was serialized irregularly by Miyuki Eto in Nakayoshi between 2005 and 2008 with nine compiled volumes. The manga received two sequels; the first, titled Shin Jigoku Shoujo, was serialized from 2008 to 2009 with three compiled volumes, and the second, titled Jigoku Shoujo R, was serialized from 2009 to 2013 with eleven compiled volumes.

Update March 3
The official website and Twitter have been opened and announced that the title for the new TV anime will be Jigoku Shoujo: Yoi no Togi. The series is scheduled to air on MBS, Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, and BS 11. It will consist of six new episodes and six selective old episodes. While cast and most of staff members will reprise their roles, Takahiro Omori, who directed first two seasons, will return to direct instead of Hiroshi Watanabe, who directed third season. A teaser PV and a key visual have also been revealed.

I can't believe it. At the same time I commented why I don't like the English dub industry, the core reason for my opinion gets a sequel.

It was my original reason to start a hate war with dubs though, haha.

Whoa! I thought the series was done with the third season! Jigoku Shoujo is one of my favorites, so I'm VERY much looking forward to a new season!

But I can't say I'm happy, since I remember how depressing this anime was.

Dammit, i always been interested in this one but i just keep pushing it thinking one day i should watch it... now this.

Wouldnt be surprised at all that Deen is back for this one but maybe Takahiro Omori decided to do like Natsume and Durarara and bring back the anime with his studio Shuka. (he did the first 2 season anyway, its a possibility i guess)

Just proves that even almost 10 years later, series can still get sequels.

OMG OMG OMG!!! My favourite anime of all time finally getting another season?! This is like christmas and my birthday together! Wow, wow, wow, I've never seen that coming!

I hope they'll focus more on the main plot again like in the first two season.

Awww... this is soooo amazing!!!

Great news.

I watched only first season, and I loved it.
I remember one especially creepy and unfair episode with certain nurse.

I'll most likely watch everything from the start before I watch this new season.

Btw, love Mamiko Noto.

Really confused by the timing of this... anybody got an explanation? The last season came out almost a decade ago, and the manga had apparently ended a few years back too. What lead to this decision? Not trying to bash it or anything, just genuinely confused.

Bringing back classics seems to be a popular trend. And who knows? They might release a continuation of the manga alongside.

Well, that's definitely come out of nowhere. Still, I enjoyed the first three seasons so I might as well watch this fourth as well when it comes out.

After that 3rd season, I'm not sure how to feel about this..

I still consider the 2nd season as the closure for the story. (Unless this will have "another" good closure, both the 3rd and the upcoming 4th season are non-canon to me)

Can't believe it's happening. After all these years.

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

I'm surprised, never thought this would get another season.
I'm looking forward to it, guess I need to watch the other two seasons before it airs then.
