The first light novel volume in Nisio Isin’s Mongatari Series: Final Season, Tsukimonogatari, was announced to be in-production in October 2014, and aired as a 4-episode New Year’s Eve TV Special that year. The short story collectionKoyomimonogatari is the second volume, Owarimonogatari spans volumes 3-5, and the final volumeZokuOwarimonogatari completes the series. Official announcements regarding the anime adaptations of Koyomimonogatari have yet to be made.

In 2012, Shaft announced it would be animating all of Nisio Isin’s Monogatari Series. At this time, the studio had already animated the 15-episode TV series Bakemonogatari starting in Summer 2009 and the 11-episode Nisemonogatari in Winter 2012.

Since the announcement, the 4-episode New Year’s Eve special Nekomonogatari: Kuro, 26-episode Monogatari Series: Second Season, and 5-episode Summer special Hanamonogatari have also been broadcast. Kizumonogatari is the only skipped adaptation in volume-order, despite its initial announcement in 2010 and a subsequent movie premiere date for 2012. Kizumonogatari‘s anime adaptation is still in production, no given date as of yet.

Bakemonogatari synopsis from Haruhichan:

The Monogatari series centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjōgahara, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi’s arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics. Despite being threatened by her, Koyomi offers his help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.
