The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is an adaptation of a manga created by Puyo and based on the alternative universe featured in the forth Haruhi Suzumiya light novel which in turn was also adapted into the film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. This anime adaptation was announced back on the 18th of December 2013 via the disappearance of the SOS Dan site at Haruhi.tv and the cast and staff were unveiled a year later. Jun'ichi Wada (episode director on EUREKA SEVEN AO, Gosick) will direct and Touko Machida (Lucky Star, Inari Kon Kon) will handle series composition at Satelight (Bodacious Space Pirates, Hellsing Ultimate). Ikuko Ito (Princess Tutu, Magic User's Club) is designing the the characters for the anime and Takeshi Yasuda, producer on the original Haruhi Suzumiya anime, is in charge of series planning.
The cast, returning from the original Haruhi Suzumiya anime includes:

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan will premiere the night of April 3 (morning of April 4) on Tokyo MX at 1:40 a.m. The series will run for 16 episodes and one original video animation (OVA) as confirmed at AnimeJapan 2015.
Funimation has licensed the series for North America but streaming times have yet to be announced.
The original manga is Puyo's official spinoff based on Nagaru Tanigawa's Haruhi Suzumiya light novel series. Puyo serializes the ongoing manga in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine, and also created The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan manga series which inspired an earlier anime. Yen Press publishes both manga in North America.
Madman Entertainment has previously released both seasons of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (in 2008 and 2010 respectively), the comedic spinoff The Melancholy Of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya & Nyoron! Churuya-san (2011) and the film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (2011).
