ANN reports that ARIA will indeed have a third season made, not including the new OVA that’s going to come out soon. Junichi Sato will again be directing like he has the past seasons and the staff is mostly the same. No air date was given, but this season has been in production since spring. Best news I’ve heard in a while. Looks like they’re determined to animate every single story from the manga. More ARIA is always a great thing.
