Hello there!

Due to the license agreement that we have with Fairy Tail, we're only able to keep new episodes up for 30 days before they're removed. Unfortunately, Fairy Tail has been on hiatus. Therefore, no new episodes to show. And no old episodes.

That = piracy and is illegal to download episodes to any series for free.

Netflix has this series anyways and its licensed to FUNimation which is the reason why CR is unable to keep them very long because FUNimation are greedy bastards.

How many seasons does Fairy Tail have anyways? Netflix only has Season 1 with 48 episodes or is that not correct?

The 30 day per episode limitation for Fairy Tail existed from the beginning, well before Funimation licensed any episodes of the series. (Funimation announced the license at Sakura-Con 2011 in the spring of that year, but the series started in fall 2009).

CR also still makes the entire series available for those in France, Belgium, and Switzerland.

I know how many episodes Fairy Tail has which your post does not answer my question: How many seasons does Fairy Tail have?

Actually, it'd be about 14 Japanese television seasons, but I think Funimation is counting about one year as a 'season.'

A cour doesn't necessarily equate to a season. (Frankly, that was the reason the term "cour" began to be used). Note that CR labels Bleach as having 15 seasons, but the series ran for 7.5 years, yielding seasons that average half a year each. If you look at each season, however, you'll note they don't have an equal number of episodes.

For long running series that have no break, a "season" is really up to the discretion of the studio, provided they even care to designate seasons. I suspect it is a case of, "This is how many episodes we are committing to at this time".

Yeah I noticed that a lot of the long running series seasons consisted of what appears to be a random number of episodes....
