With this announcement, Love Live! fans will have back-to-back seasons of the school idol series, as Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club premieres this April and Love Live! Superstar!! premieres this July. The first season of Love Live! Superstar!! aired on NHK-E in Japan from July 11, 2021, to October 17, 2021, with minor delays due to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics that were held over the same time frame. Crunchyroll streamed the series in the UK and Ireland, describing it as such:
The first students have arrived at Yuigaoka Girls’ High School, a new academy built on the crossroads of Omotesando, Harajuku, and Aoyama. With no history, no upperclassmen to rely on, and no name to speak of, this school’s totally starting from scratch! In the midst of this, a team of five girls led by Kanon Shibuya discover “school idols.” —I love singing! I really do! And I want to accomplish something with it! So the hopes of these stars, still small in stature, begin to accumulate…and so begins the “School Idol Project” of five girls with a blank slate and infinite potential.
Takahiko Kyogoku, who worked on the first Love Live! TV anime series returned to the director’s chair for Love Live! Superstar!!, with Jukki Hanada writing the scripts at what will then be known as Bandai Namco Filmworks (formally Sunrise).
