The poster for the Kaitō Joker Jōei Matsuri event revealed that the previosuly announced new Mysterious Joker (Kaitō Joker) television anime series will premiere in April. In addition, the poster reveals that the main staff of the previous two seasons will return for the third series.

Yukiyo Teramoto will direct the series, with series composition by Dai Sato. Miho Shimogasa is designing the characters, and Yūsaku Tsuchiya is composing the music.

The Kaitō Joker Jōei Matsuri event will take place over five days on February 6, 7, 14, 21, and 28. The event will screen four compilations of episodes from the series' two seasons. The "Subarashiki Kaitō Nakama-hen" will screen on February 6 and 7. The "Osoru Beki Rival-hen" will screen on February 14. The "Yukai Tsūkai! Bakushō-hen" will screen on February 21. The "Kisōtengai! Trick-hen" will screen on February 28.

In Hideyasu Takahashi's Kaitō Joker (Mysterious Joker) manga that inspired the anime, there is nothing in the world that the mysterious phantom thief Joker cannot steal. He goes after one treasure after another in unpredictable capers with seemingly miraculous tricks.

The first television anime series premiered last October, and the second series premiered on April 6. Crunchyroll streamed both the anime series (under the title Joker) into several countries as they aired in Japan.

Takahashi began the manga in Shogakukan's Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic magazine in 2007, although it then moved to the main Monthly CoroCoro Comic magazine. The manga won the children's category of the 58th Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2013.
