I'm more interested in the idol anime, especially since it's a good way to tell if anime will be back to normal post 2020 or not (It airs in 2021).

The way I see it, whatever Strike Witches we get is all there is at this point. Sure, 1937 Fuso could easily be animated, but it would only really encompass a special. Don't get me wrong, I definitely want another season, but they have to be written from scratch now.

There is actually a new real series on the way.

Chibi shorts
Idol show
Regular Strike Witches season

Yeah, that one I'm excited for. I suppose I jumped too far forward; the main series addition is definitely important, but the fact that there's nothing obvious in the works after it make the shorts much more enjoyable, in addition to any future shorts they produce in the wake of the show.

Though, my research skills are clumsy: I read the article as there being a new show in the works, but if they actually have multiple seasons planned, then I guess I'm wrong. (I honestly don't want to open up the announcement page right now because I'm in public :P)
