Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they’ll stream Durarara!! X2 The Third Arc on their service. Crunchyroll will launch the series on January 9, at 8:00AM Pacific (11:00AM Eastern), with new episodes being added every Saturday.

Durarara!! X2 The Third Arc is the fourth season of the Durarara!! anime franchise, which began airing in 2010. Takahiro Omori (Hell Girl, Princess Jellyfish) is returning to helm the series at studio Shuka. Likewise, Takahiro Kishida (Haikyu!!, Baccano!) and Noboru Takagi(Baccano!, Kuroko’s Basketball) will reprise their roles in character design and series composition, respectively.

Crunchyroll describes Durarara!! X2 The Third Arc as follows:

Ikebukuro is engulfed in a spiral of confusion. A group of individuals, each carrying the weight of their own past, gathers at Shinra’s apartment, while in the city the Dollars, Yellow Scarves, and Saika contend for power. However, the situation takes a turn that no one could expect when Celty’s head is revealed to the public, as this tale approaches its conclusion.

The series will make its début on Japanese TV on January 9.

Aniplex currently holds the domestic rights to Durarara!!, Durarara!!×2 Shō, and Durarara!! ×2 The Second Arc, which are all available to stream on Crunchyroll.
