The current iteration of this franchise with Kiratto Pri☆Chan is moving right along but it’s hit a bump in the road like many series these days. With the third season of it getting underway in early April but continuing on in numbering, we saw the show go on hold at the end of April with episode 106. Now, the production has gotten back into a good place and they’ve scheduled a July 5th, 2020 debut for the return with episode 107 scheduled as you can see through the Tweet below.
The series has Hiroshi Ikehata directing based on the scripts by Kazuho Hyodo. Hajime Mitsuda is handling the character designs with Tatsunoko Production and Dongwoo A&E handling the animation production.

Plot Concept: The story will have video uploading and streaming sites as a central focus, and will once again have themes of singing, dancing, fashion, and friendship as part of the series’ themes. The series will center on two first-year middle school girls named Mirai Momoyama and Emo Moegi, two aspiring idols who decide to use the “Pri☆Chan System,” a system used by famous people and companies to broadcast content. Like many girls starting their own channels and uploading content, the pair decides to become their own producers, starting their own channel in an attempt to become Pri☆Chan idols.
