3rd season of Ghost in the Shell confirmed

From AnimeNation:

Production IG has revealed plans to formally announce a new anime project titled "Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society" at the Tokyo International Anime Fair later this month.

Why I care: Oh my God! I love Stand Alone Complex and am so happy they are making a third season I may just spontaneously combust from the overstimulated joy sensors in my brain overheating (assuming such things exist). So far the second season has been even better than the first season, and if the next iteration can top that then I may forsake Catholicism and make Production IG my focus for a new world religion. Though, I don't want to build up my expectations too much... (Too late?)
