The 26-episode Macross Delta television anime series ran from April to September 2016, after a preview of the first episode in 2015. The series is receiving an anime compilation film premeiring February 9 in Japan. The Macross franchise itself is also receiving a new television anime series in 2018 to commemorate the franchise's 35th anniversary.
