Sunrise and TV Tokyo's official websites for the Gintama television anime series confirmed on Sunday that Gintama will return every Thursday at 6:00 p.m., starting October 4. In addition to "Yorinuki Gintama-san" (a repeat of selected Gintama anime episodes), the broadcast will include new Gintama episodes. The main staff and cast will return for the new episodes.
Gintama is also getting a second film next year and a new game project from Namco Bandai Games. The Gintama television series first ran from April 2006 to March 2010, and then returned for an April 2011-March 2012 run.
The 6:00 p.m. Thursday timeslot is currently held by Sket Dance.
