|Digimon Fusion is slated to air later this year. Needless to say, I'm excited as balls. The last Digimon series to be released on any type of basic TV hookup was Frontier, over ten years ago. When they aired Data Squad, it was over on either Disney XD or Jetix, which was way out of my parent's cable subscription at the time.
All I can say is YES YES YES YES.
Haven't gotten word on who is directing the dub. I am HOPING that Jeff Nimoy returns like he did for Data Squad, but I haven't heard anything. He directed the first two seasons and actually went on a Digimon forum when he was hired for Data Squad and personally asked fans which voice actors they wanted back. He kinda got shafted with the first two seasons with all those goofy lines with the network and the nonsensical movie, and overall really does want the dubbed version of this series to maintain a similar tone to its Japanese original. In short, he legitimately tries to be loyal to the original, but the networks are jerks.
I don't think he is directing this season though, if this admittedly shitty trailer is any indication, but I CAN DREAM.
