Back in late 2016, Canal J announced Crystal Season 3 and even slated the premiere for a certain date.
That means they actually acquired it. You don't announce new content in your programming before you actually but it, right?
They, they just told the folks at Sailor Moon Galaxy that they postponed the season "because of bad ratings of the previous episodes".
I never believed this explanation, honestly. If they were aware of bad ratings from the start, they would not be getting new episodes because that costs money.
And even if the ratings aren't good, not airing the new episodes they acquired is nothing less than financial loss.
Do you guys think they chose to cancel the season because they thought they would have trouble with the Uranus and Neptune situation?
Remember France made Haruka a "cover boyfriend" for Michiru and had her actually sound feminine in senshi clothing, back in the classic anime dub. And that even being the progressive country it is, Steven Universe and its LGBT themes are censored for broadcast in France.

If what you say about Steven Universe, etc. is true, then it's possible that Uranus and Neptune were a cause for concern for this company...however, do people really watch anime on television nowadays? Isn't it mostly streamed and then released on home media?

That may apply to the US and parts of Latin America, but anime is still huge on European and Asian television. Sailor Moon Crystal performed really well in Italy, so did Dragon Ball Super in Portugal.

This is the first french ver. of "Stronger than You". They tried to portray Ruby and Sapphire's love as "friendship" ("amitié") in the lyrics, something that even some dubs airing in less developed countries didn't do. However, the fans complained and they switched it back to "love" (amour) by redubbing the song.

They are still tolerant, but this children's TV situation is still there.

The gay marriage in France was allow only since 4 years ago. And to get it, it was the pain in ☹, because many strikes against it, specially with Brigitte Bardot.

So it could be about this fact indeed. As you said, Haruka was a boy in civilian form and transform into a girl as a senshi. Today, it's impossible for them to do it since Internet exists.

But I think the true reason is Sailor Moon Crystal is not that watched well in France. It's not like the 90's when kids can't get internet to watch internet. You needed to watch Sailor Moon on TV.

I contacted the company that manages the French dubbing. Toei Europe have not placed any orders and the series is on stand by.
That is the answer I received.
