In an Instagram post (shown below) the creator of the D.Gray-man series has announced that the upcoming series will be a continuation of the current anime. The writer of the manga, Katsura Hoshino, made the following statement (translated from the Instagram post below):

Thanks to everyone who went to the D.Gray-man stage today. As was said in the announcement, a new series has been green-lit. Because the staff will be completely different, the story will be a continuation, but I think it will become a completely new D.Gray-man anime. Thank you for everyone who’s supported me until now.

本日はDグレステージに来てくださりありがとうございました。 発表されました通り新シリーズのアニメ化が決まりました。 作り手が一新されるので、物語は続編ですが全く新しいDグレアニメになると思います。 どうか応援していただけると嬉しいです? 担当K氏がDグレステージでこのインスタを紹介されたそうなのですが(笑)、こちらはあくまで私個人のゆるい私的アカウントですので、公式な告知などはほとんど発信しませんのでよろしくお願い致します。 公式の発信はSQジャンプまたはDグレアニメ公式サイトをご覧ください???

As was stated in the original announcement and prior post, the new series will be debuting in 2016. Although the story is going to be a continuation, and as the cast is different it is speculated that it could possibly be a sequel, somewhere much further along the timeline, or a possible reboot. Currently though, there isn’t any indication towards any direction.
