Hiro Mashima, the creator of the Fairy Tail franchise, took to Twitter recently to announce that his hit series will receive one more television anime season and it will be it’s last. 

As you can see from the Tweet, the final season will air sometime in 2018, but which season and the number of episodes have not been announced as of yet. The Fairy Tail manga is scheduled to end (as of the time of this news report) next week on chapter 545, but there was also no indication of whether or not that the final season will include the manga’s ending. The manga began publishing in 2006.

Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, the franchise’s second animated movie, is scheduled for release in the U.S. on August 14 and in Canada on August 16. 

MyAnimeList.net describes the story of Fairy Tail as follows:

In the mystical land of Fiore, magic exists as an essential part of everyday life. Countless magic guilds lie at the core of all magical activity, and serve as venues for like-minded mages to band together and take on job requests. Among them, Fairy Tail stands out from the rest as a place of strength, spirit, and family.

Lucy Heartfilia is a young mage searching for celestial gate keys, and her dream is to become a full-fledged wizard by joining this famous guild. In her search, she runs into Natsu Dragneel and his partner Happy, who are on a quest to find Natsu’s foster father, the dragon Igneel.

Upon being tricked by a man, Lucy falls under an abduction attempt, only to be saved by Natsu. To her shock, he reveals that he is a member of Fairy Tail and invites her to join them. There, Lucy meets the guild’s strange members, such as the ice wizard Gray Fullbuster and magic swordswoman Erza Scarlet. Together as a family, they battle the forces of evil, help those in need, and gain new friends, all the while enjoying the never-ending adventure that is Fairy Tail.
