The Twitter account for the STARMYU anime series revealed on Saturday that the anime's third season will premiere in summer 2019. The anime will feature the first appearance of the new Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association).

The previously revealed new OVA for the series, titled STARMYU in Halloween, will ship on October 24. The OVA was originally slated to ship on October 10. The anime will tell a story about Hoshitani and friends on Halloween, and will feature a music video for the song "Storytellers."

The first 12-episode STARMYU television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2015. Funimation streamed the series as it aired, and it describes the story.

Ayana Academy: home of musical dreams and insane competition. New student Yuta Hoshitani dreams of being in show business, but to get there he'll have to gain acceptance from the Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association), Ayana Academy's three highest ranking students. For Yuta and his friends to get into the music department, they'll have to get into the Star Frame class, which is taught by the Kao Kai members. Though the newcomers are struggling, they catch the interest of one of the Kao Kai members, which just might send them on the starlit journey they've been dreaming of!

The anime project also includes a two-part original video anime (OVA) project. The first OVA, which serves as episode 13 of the anime, shipped in July 2016. The second OVA, which serves as episode 14 of the anime, shipped in September 2016.

The anime's second 12-episode anime season premiered in April 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Crunchyroll began streaming the first series in January.

The anime's first stage musical adapted the anime's first season, and ran in Tokyo and Osaka in April 2017.

The second full stage musical, titled Musical STARMYU -2nd Season-, ran in Tokyo and Osaka in July.
