Sailor Moon lives! Japanese production studio Toei Animation (which produced beloved anime series like Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh! and more) has confirmed a new season of its recent Sailor Moon reboot.

Sailor Moon Crystal, which currently has its first season streaming on Hulu with the second expected soon, will air a third season in 2016. It will initially be broadcasted on Japan's TV Tokyo MX channel.

Fans of Usagi & Co. will remember that the initial 2014 season of Sailor Moon Crystal was available to stream online, but the upcoming batch of episodes will move back to broadcast and air weekly. There's no word on whether the move will affect whether it comes to streaming services.

There isn't a premiere date set yet, but in the meantime, get your anime fix by finding out which Dragon Ball Z character you are or which Pokémon is perfect for you.

Correction: An earlier version of this article stated the 2014 season Sailor Moon Crystal was available to stream online "all at once," which was incorrect.
