We know that you have been waiting for this announcement since June 2015, and this has finally happened.

However, the exact date for the new television adaptation is still unclear. Some media outlets claim that High School DxD Season 4 will start this fall. However, these rumors are nothing but speculations. In fact, there is no exact release date so far. We suggest you visit the official website of the franchise to be sure of this. There are two trailers (1, 2) on the subject as well. However, we don't consider them official.

The other exciting news is that High School DxD joins the lineup of Crunchyroll at 7:00 PM PT and will be available for the viewers in the US, UK, Ireland, and Canada.

Honestly, we have been waiting for both these decisions as this anime has a huge fandom. All three previous seasons of the series have received a positive response from the target audience. The first season of High School DxD has a score of 7.64/10 ~ 314,000 votes, on MyAnimeList. The sophomore season gained 7.81/10 points based on over 216,000 votes. Finally, the recent season of the series has received a rating of 7.69/10 ~ 151,500 votes. We regarded these statistics as pretty favorable for the further decision on renewal.

Despite the fact that Issei attends the all-girls school, he still unlucky as for the interaction with the opposite sex. Issei calls for Gods that they send him a girlfriend.
