The upcoming Fruits Basket: The Final, which is the next season of the Fruits Basket anime reboot series, will premiere on April 5.

Fruits Basket is based on the manga by Natsuki Takaya. The reboot is the second anime adaptation of the manga, following a 26-episode anime series which aired in 2001. Crunchyroll describes the show as:

Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
