After the final episode's broadcast of Production I.G's Psycho-Pass 3 on Friday, it was announced that a new movie is in the works. Subtitled First Inspector, it will screen in Japan in Spring 2020. Amazon Prime Video will also be streaming the film.

Psycho-Pass is an original crime series that premiered in Fall 2012. It was followed by an 11-episode second season by Tatsunoko Production and an anime film by Production I.G in January 2015.

A theatrical trilogy, titled Sinners of the System, premiered this year, with the first, second, and third films opening on January 25, February 15, and March 8, respectively.

The third anime season, directed by Naoyoshi Shiotani (Psycho-Pass 2), began broadcasting on Fuji TV's late-night anime programming block noitaminA on October 25 with a duration of 45 minutes per episode. Amazon Prime Video streamed the series worldwide.

All I wanted to happen on s3 was a recounter between akane and kougami (of course my dream plot would include them and ginoza in some plan to take down sybil, but I'm a realistic woman and knew it would never happen). Now that s3 took down all of my expectations, I don't know if I see much future in the series ...

@kyutiepie_wifeu nice insight. Who knows, maybe we'll get a 4th season, ProdIG is stacked. And maybe they'll understand what they did wrong in the anime after PP1 so we can enjoy PP as it was supposed to be.

So, lets see what movie are they made in 2020 later (is continunity of season 3, spin off of season 3 or new hero and villain aka arata and kei aren't main chara again)

Looking forward to it. 8 episodes is a joke, even being 45 min long

Reminds me I should watch season 3.

Season 1 was fantastic, but so many other shows deserve movies/new series, why is this still continuing?

For me there is no Psycho-Pass after season 1. Season 2 was one of the biggest abomination piles of fucking shit I've ever seen.

they should bring back Shogo instead like make a clone of him from a secret brain/memory scan while he was sleep or something lol

If you don't like something, it's good to use at least use respectful words.

Not sure how they are rated in Japan, but the series is still popular there. Not as much as before sure, but there are lots of fans left who enjoy and look forward to more content they put out (they even get light novels or/and manga). I remember seeing it trending #1 in Japan on Twitter a few times when the episodes were airing. When the 1st episode of S3 aired in Japan, it even trended worldwide. If it wasn't popular, they wouldn't have bothered to release 3 movies and a season in a whole year.

Personally, I am super excited for the next movie. I've been enjoying everything Psycho Pass by now. The director seem to have a few more plans for Psycho Pass (that's what he said), which I am super curious about.

Every non-Urobuchi Psycho Pass thing has been nothing short of absolutely horrendous. I sincerely hope this is the last punch in the face the original series gets.
