Main staff & cast return, but 'something's different' in season with new characters

The official website for the television anime of Bandai Namco Entertainment and Kuma-Jet's The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls Gekijō (The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls Theater) manga announced on Sunday that a new television season, Climax Season, will premiere next April. The announcement visual shows the new characters Kako Takafuji, Hikaru Nanjō, Hinako Kita, and Hotaru Shiragiku, and it also teases that "something's different" about the new season.

Mankyū (PUCHIM@S, Donyatsu, DD Fist of the North Star, Mobile Suit Gundam-san) is returning from the third season to direct and supervise the series scripts at the studio Gathering. The returning cast includes Ayaka Ōhashi as Uzuki Shimamura, Ayaka Fukuhara as Rin Shibuya, and Sayuri Hara as Mio Honda. The episode will still be five minutes long, but further broadcast and streaming details have yet to be determined.

The first 13-episode anime season of five-minute shorts premiered in Japan in April 2017. Daisuki streamed the series outside of Japan. The second season premiered in October 2017, and Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of Japan. The third season premiered this past July, and Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of Japan.

Mankyū directed the previous anime seasons at the studio Gathering, where he also worked on the PUCHIM@S net anime adaptation of the Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- manga. "BanNam" (Bandai Namco Entertainment) is credited with the original work, and Kuma-Jet is credited with the anime's original character designs.
