Third Window Films has announced a general idea of what they have in store for the future. Sony caused some problems so they weren't able to release any titles onto home video throughout this year, so all titles are scheduled for 2020.

Unfortunately we've had some major problems with Sony who have left us in a position which meant that we couldn't release any films this year, so have moved everything to next year. Also, this chaos has made it hard to plan in terms of acquiring films as well.
The titles on the schedule are as follows:

Pink series Vol. 1 & 2: Inflatable Sex Doll of the Wastelands (1967) & Gushing Prayer (1971)
Vol. 1 directed by Atsushi Yamatoya / Vol. 2 directed by Masao Adachi
Est: January/February 2020

The Legend of the Stardust Brothers (1985)
Directed by Makoto Tezuka (Osamu Tezuka's son)
Est: February/March 2020

Killing (2018) / Haze (2005) / Adventures of Electric Rod Boy (1987)
All three films directed by Shinya Tsukamoto
Est: April/May 2020

Pink series Vol. 3 & 4: Abnormal Family (1984) & Blue Film Woman (1969)
Vol. 3 directed by Masayuki Suo / Vol. 4 directed by Kan Mukai
Est: Spring 2020

Pink series Vol. 5 & 6: Women Hell Song (1970) & Underwater Love (2011)
Vol. 5 directed by Mamoru Watanabe / Vol. 6 directed by Shinji Imaoka
Est: Autumn 2020

Random fact: The director of the Pink film Inflatable Sex Doll of the Wastelands is also the screenwriter for the Lupin the Third films The Secret of Mamo and Gold Babylon.
