According to a scan of the cover from the upcoming issue of GFantasy magazine, it will be announced that a new Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) anime series has been green-lit. No other information on the series has been given at this time.
Two anime seasons have aired thus far. The first season aired in October 2008 and adapted the manga. The second season aired in July 2010 and was anime-original, introducing a new butler and master. It is currently unknown if the new anime will follow the manga or be an anime-original story.
Update March 22
It was announced that the new Kuroshitsuji anime will be both a TV series and an OVA series.
The TV series is subtitled Book of Circus and will air July 2014 in the Animeism block. It will adapt the Noah's Ark Circus Arc, picking the manga story back up from the point at which they diverged. This arc immediately follows the Curry Contest Arc in the manga, which ended at episode 15 in the first season of the anime.
The OVA is subtitled Book of Murder and will pre-screen in theaters Fall 2014. It will adapt the Phantomhive Manor Murder Case Arc, which follows the circus arc in the manga.

It's serialized on Gangan, a shonen manga magazine, so i rather fail to see your point.
Regarding the news itself, i'm pretty excited about it despite having forgotten a lot of things from the series. Doesn't help that i dropped the manga 2 years ago since the scanlation during 2011 was extremely slow and i simply had no patience to wait longer. The Live-Action version was rather disappointing (particularly the way they brutally changed the characters and setting), hence i'm going to put my hope for the third version to restore my faith on the series
I would love it if it covered the Public School Arc of the manga, Sebastian Michaelis as a teacher now that is hot! I bet Lawrence Bluer in anime form would be smoking too XP
But it would be nice if at some point in the third series I would like to see Sebastian and Ciel in another form and not just a butler and master all the time, such as teacher and pupil. Is it obvious yet that I like the Public School Arc? lols
I can't wait, thank you for letting us know!
The first season seemed to me a bit boring in terms of characters, even though it had a more accessible plot, while the second season had better characters and was confusing as hell.
I hope that the third season follows a new master/servant pair, since following Ciel might not be interesting at this point. And I can't wait to see more of Grell and Undertaker.
Considering how downright stupid this series got as it progressed, I'm not sure if I'm glad of this. And let's be honest, with Ciel now immortal it really limits where the story can go from here. Will watch, but I don't expect great things after the fluctuating quality of season 1 and the straight-up mediocrity of season 2.
I'm not sure if I should cringe or be excited since Kuroshitsuji is very reminiscent of my short weeaboo phase that took place in summer 2011... I hope they stick with Ciel and Sebastian though >< I really liked Alois as a character but the second season very was 'meh' in my opinion. The main reason I'm excited though is because Finnian was the first anime character I ever really got attached to and loved so yeah c:
