No details revealed except for hint of 2008 start

The official blog for the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni franchise on the Japanese website has announced that a third season has been greenlit for production. The blog entry says that no details have been decided, but it also says that people can look forward to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni in 2008. A live-action film had been previously announced for 2008.

The first anime series based on the murder mystery visual novel software aired in Japan in 2006, and Geneon Entertainment released part of the series in North America in 2007 before it ceased in-house production and distribution of anime. The second season premiered in Japan in July, although its final episodes were preempted or cancelled on several stations in the aftermath of real-life assaults.
