The problem is Funimation owns the rights to Fairy Tail, and Crunchyroll being a 100% safe, legal, legitimate source for anime just wont be able to stream Fairy Tail without a proper license. Hopefully they can work something out with Funimation because that would be awesome if Fairy Tail comes to Crunchyroll! *I think they have the Fairy Tail manga on here for premium users aswell.

They had Last season's Fairy Tail, so I don't see why there should be any issues with this season

The big issue facing Crunchyroll is that Funimation now hold the license for Fairy Tail and it has been doing very well for them. At this point the best CR viewers can hope for is a shared simulcast with Funimation but it is best to keep your hopes low because Funimation may get it as an exclusive stream.

Crunchyroll continued streaming the last season of Fairy Tail well after FUNimation had licensed the show. As long as Crunchyroll can work out a deal with TV Tokyo then it could be here regardless of how FUNi genuinely feels about it. It could be different this time, but Crunchyroll has been able to renew simulcasts of shows picked up by FUNi and other distributors several times before. Heaven's Lost Property being one example from Kadokawa. The terms usually entail limitations such as being offered to members only, region restrictions, and/or short windows of availability.

This may or may not be the case this time, but it certainly is not impossible.

I'm closing this because requests for series you want CR to acquire should be made in the CR Premium Members group--there's a special thread for it there:

/forumtopic-588949/what-seriesmoviedramamanga-would-you-like-to-see-on-cr

Regarding Fairy Tale specifically, there is already a thread with speculation about it in Site Support / Minor Questions:
