The Wildcard
Loads of sequels to watch and some I haven't seen the previous seasons (either by choice or not got around to).
Haven't gone through the synopses of the new stuff, but most of the names don't sound too promising (there's 4 with Idol in the title and a load of isekai sounding ones), the only one I'll be definitely watching is the Spider one, looks fun.

School Idol
Going to be kinda weird to have two Cells at Work series running at the same time with completely different tones to each other.

Haven't really looked into the other upcoming shows, but most certainly going to check out Non Non Biyori Nonstop, Laid-Back Camp Season 2 and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2.

Of the remaining titles Quintuplets and Laid-Back Camp are very likely to return to CR but I'm hoping Wonder Egg Priority also joins them. The staff on that show looks real promising and it'll probably be the hidden gem of the season.

I'm glad someone picked up Otherside Picnic. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get my yuri fix after Adachi and Shimamura ends.

So that's, what, eight isekai shows already? I hope "let's watch someone else play an RPG on easy mode" isn't going to be the dominant trope for another decade.

Japan is having a romcom boom right now in regards to light novels, so in actuality a lot of the anime projects right now are simply what's left of the isekai. They've just been in production for so long that anime has yet to catch up with the new source material trends is all.

Now that CR has revealed their initial line-up my current watchlist is pretty much sequel central:
Laid-Back Camp Season 2​
Uma Musume: Pretty Derby Season 2​
The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2​
Dr. STONE: STONE WARS​

There's also four other shows that I'm interested in but I'm keeping it at a simple 4 shows for now as that's been pretty effective for my backlog so far
