Crunchyroll announced on Saturday that it will stream Utano☆Princesama Legend Star, the fourth season of the Uta no Prince-sama anime, as it airs in Japan.

Sentai Filmworks announced earlier this week that it had licensed the series. Sentai Filmworks has also licensed the first three seasons and has released the first two on home video. Niconico streamed the first season outside of Japan as it aired, and Crunchyroll streamed the second and third seasons. All three seasons are streaming on the Anime Network.
The anime's story will start where the third season left off, at the competition for who will open the Triple S international sporting event. Raging Entertainment's HE★VENS idol group had hijacked the competition between QUARTET NIGHT and ST☆RISH, causing chaos. However, after the QUARTET NIGHT members suggest a certain idea, the three groups aim toward a new stage, with HE★VENS swearing to get their revenge on the other two groups.
