Ever since the announcement of One Punch Man Season 3, many fans have been wondering when exactly the third season of the beloved anime will release. The first season aired in 2015, with the second airing in 2019.
When Will One Punch Man Season 3 Be Released?
As of now, we do not have a confirmed release date for OPM Season 3. Going off of the August announcement, it is safe to say that the new season will not air in the first half of next year. Most likely, the earliest One Punch Man S3 will air is Fall 2023, or October. It is entirely possible, however, that we will not see the new season released until 2024. The deciding factor will most likely be the production studio, which has been leaked.
When Is Animating OPM Season 3?
It has been leaked that MAPPA will be handling the production of the anime. MAPPA is best known for Jujutsu Kaisen, the Final Season of Attack on Titan, Chainsaw Man, and more. One Punch Man is described below by Crunchyroll:
Saitama started out being a hero just for fun. After three years of “special” training, he became so powerful that he can defeat opponents with a single punch. Now, alongside Genos, his faithful cyborg disciple, Saitama is ready to begin his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.
However, the frequency of monster appearances is surging and it increasingly appears as if the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth’s doom is coming true. In the midst of this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his own appearance.
