UNBELIEVABLE NEWS!!!! What a way to start 2022!!! Saw it over on a Facebook page "seiyuu". I cannot get a link to the FB page, so here's the copy-pasta of their post (includes links to a Japanese article, with a LOT of info' & pix of the new voice talent, and to a teaser video !!!!! )

A new Urusei Yatsura TV anime is in production and will be broadcast on Fuji TV's noitaminA timeframe. The new series is produced to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Shogakukan.

The new series stars Hiroshi Kamiya as Ataru Moroboshi and Sumire Uesaka as Lum.
The new series is directed by Hideya Takahashi and Yasuhiro Kimura and produced by David Production.

The series will be released in 4 cours, and the first cour of the series will be released in 2022.

Pinch me, I must be dreaming! Talk about an excellent way to start the new year. So far everything they've shown looks great, and I'm even willing to accept the new VAs. Listening to the trailer, they captured the spirit of the past actors well.

I was both surprised and scared when I heard the news. The main problem I had in my mind were the voices. Then I heard the teaser and now I'm only surprised :D

First thing I did after hearing the news a few minutes ago was to come here and rejoice with you guys, I should probably binge the original show before I watch the new season… This really is a miracle.

Like everyone said, this is unexpected. My stance regarding the new Urusei Yatsura anime is to wait and see, I don't want to hype a lot because I think that UY is a product of its age, the 80's and a combination of many factors that doesn't happen many times in history that made the show outstanding. I can't see where the new anime is really bringing something new in this matter (except adaptations from unadapted chapters from the original anime), but I'll sure watch the day its available to watch.

I liked the new seiyuus. I thought they strove to resemble Furokawa and Hirano.

I wonder if it will have more of the continuity and character development that I'm told the Manga did. The 80's TV business insisted on episodic TV so that series were easier to sell in syndication, thus things often "reset" at the end of the episode in many series.

It seems like this series will only cover adaptations of manga stories, not any new storylines. But perhaps this will increase interest in the manga and lead to reprints/translations into more languages? The anime seems to be available in many more countries than the manga.

I would be glad you they put some kind off philosophical episodes on this new series, they did put some of them in the old series.

If they do some episodes kinda like Beautiful Dreamer then I would be glad.

But for that perhaps they would have to call Mamoru Oshii again and if Rumiko Takahashi is there with the production things would probably escalate, probably not.

It still bothers me that the best movie of the series isn't liked by her, but she keeps her mouth shut about that cause she knows the popularity of it. xD
