New cast members were also announced, who made guest appearances without prior announcements, along with Naoyoshi Shiotani (director) and Tomokazu Seki (Shinya Kougami). The airing schedule of the sequel was not indicated, but it will air on Fuji TV's noitaminA timeslot.

Psycho-Pass first aired for 22 episodes in Fall 2012, followed by an 11-episode second season in Fall 2014 and a movie in January 2015. It later received a three-part Sinners of the System movie trilogy this year, with its third and final part recently premiering on Friday.

Apparently, it's not even about Kogami, Akane, even Mika [the second inspector during S2/movies].

They're adopting a new inspector duo. The main dude looks like Kogami.

New focus, new story..

> No Tsunemori in the cover

> No writen by Urobuchi

Even worse than S2.

I felt the second season was almost like a rehash of everything that worked on the first season and played it too safe. They should have never left Urobuchi out of the picture when they were making it.

If he actually returns to write the third season, I might give this series another chance to watch again.

If Gen Urobuchi comes back as the script writer, then I will be hyped.

S1 was amazing and S2 was fine eventough it wasn't as good as the previous one. Definitely will try watching this and if looking at the poster... it'll be a totally new character? so Akane's role is finished?

If Gen Urobuchi isn't directly in charge of this season like he wasn't with S2, then no thanks.

No Booch, no buys.

I'm very happy to see that this series already gets an announcement for a continuation. I didn't expect this sequel that early, let alone directly after the premiere of the last movie.
