Move aside, Attack on Titan and every sequel series, because the Fate franchise is taking over 2017.

I really hope you love the Fate series, because you are about to see a lot of it. Here are the announced and planned anime projects that will happen in 2017.
What it is: A feature length TV special based on the hit Fate/Grand Order mobile game. The anime will feature an original story, which focuses on the Chaldea Security Organization trying to prevent the Holy Grail War from occurring in 2004.
Premier: January 1, 2017
What it is: A follow up to Fate/Grand Order -First Order- It wasn't revealed if the -Next Order- will be another TV special or a TV series.
What it is: A movie trilogy adapting the Heaven's Feel route from the Fate/stay Night visual novel. The story focuses on Sakura and her dark relationship with Shirou.
What it is: A TV series based on the Fate/Extra PSP game. The series centers around Hakuno, a boy who wakes up in a strange virtual world and is thrown into a new Holy Grail War.
What it is: A movie follow up to Fate/Kalied liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! The story was not stated, but it can be guessed that the movie will somehow tie in Shirou from Miyu's world.
Studio: Silver Link
Premier: 2017 / 2018
Depending when Fate/Kalied liner Prisma Illya Movie comes out, we can have up to five new Fate anime projects airing in 2017. Even if the Illya movie comes out in 2018, we can possibly see one new Fate series per season next year.
Will you be able to handle all of these Fate anime projects?
