I have found this article on the internet:

"People have been wondering all over the internet if 'Sekirei' will be continuing their progress on the Anime with a Season 3. Well, I have done some research and this is what things look like:

This problem happened with the transition between Seasons 1 and 2 when the anime caught up too quickly to the manga itself, and Sekirei had to post-pone production on the series in order for the Manga to keep ahead.

On a Note, on average, it takes 6 Months in order to produce 10 Chapters of the Manga version of 'Sekirei.' Now because the anime skipped a few chapters, there was a long wait between seasons. It took TWO YEARS for Season 2 to be release, so by the same logic, it will most likely take the same amount of time for Season 3 to come about.

We're looking at a time of about 1 to 1 1/2 year(s) for the next season to come out. I know this is bad news, but at the very least you can keep reading the Manga enthusiastically until it is released!"

But is it true?

As far as it goes, yes.  It's true that Sekirei overtook the manga in Season 2 and that's partially the reason for the long delay.  But whether there is a Season 3 and/or 4 depends on the business case for it, and that's entirely dependent on how it's perceived in Japan.  I've heard that it did OK-but-not-great in terms of sales so that kind of leaves it up the air in terms of a producer's willingness to invest (for what it's worth, Season 2 apparently did better than Season 1 so that was a good sign).

However, we're well past the "1 to 1 1/2 years for the next season to come out" in that post you found.  It's now been 3 1/2 years and there's no announcement in sight.
