From what I heard, it might be a manga sequel rather than anime remake/sequel/spinoff/continuation.

I'm going to guess reboot like FMA.

Meh. Wasn't interested the first time around and sequels (Cough E7:AO) after this many years usually fail spectacularly.

The art on the poster looks like it's from an American comic, which is weird.

There was also an announcement in Shueisha Jump Remix on Feb. 7th:

I don't mind a spinoff-type addition to the franchise, but I'd rather not have a direct sequel. All grounds have been covered with Death Note. There's nowhere left to go that I can see. But, I'll withhold my judgment until the actual announcement.

I don't know how a sequel could possible work for Death Note. Death Note's complete appeal was that you had an evil genius as the main character. Light is gone now though. No character you could ever write for this premise could top Light. Honestly, this IP has seen reached it's peak. They have literally done the best they can with this, anything more is going to be going downhill.

Why would it need a sequel?! Why?! To milk the DN cow further?! Somehow retcon L back into the show in an alternate realty?!

Doesn't need a sequel.
Doesn't need a remake.
Side story? I'd be ok with that.

I've watched DN only once. I tried to rewatch it once, but I just couldn't do it. I got bored after one ep.
It's a great anime of course, but it's overrated.

Yeah I agree, a side story wouldn't be that bad

I'm curious as to what this could be. Either way, I'm interested.

Since they are planning to do this, may as well hope for the best....

I am hoping for all new characters (maybe a cameo by the annoying Misa Misa) but keep Ryuk as the main Shimigami

A new guy gets the Deathnote (sufficiently differnt from Light I hope to make it interesting, I loved the Light character, but don't want some imitation BS)

Please NO NEAR! (damn that character sucked major dragon ballz!)

Maybe just a ordinary detective as they now know in secret circles that deathnote's do exist. He tries tracking down the MC who is trying to change the world ala Kira, but isn't the super-smart guy that Light was. So it doesn't become a sherlock holmes thing again, but more of a ...in the big world one detective tries tracking down the MC, the MC bumbling gives clues away, he gains support, and an epic battle at the end to determine who wins

Well there was one plot thread left open that there is supposedly one more Death Note left on Earth and that Ryuk could always come back...I think. Been awhile since I last read the manga.

On the other hand, yeah side story with a new character. Not sure if they should go as far as make them attempt another Kira-esque plan.
