One-Punch Man season two ended in July 2019, so it feels like it’s been ages since we last could watch this series.
Despite not reaching the same phenomenal heights as season one, which would be hard since Madhouse created a masterpiece of animation, the 12 episodes of season two were still entertaining and left fans hungry for more.
And after a few years of uncertainty, we can finally rejoice – One-Punch Man season three is definitely happening, and we can’t wait to see what foes Saitama and the other S-class heroes will fight next.
Here’s what we know so far.
One-Punch Man Season 3 Release: When is One-Punch Man Season 3 Coming Out?
One-Punch Man season three was officially confirmed in August 2022, after over three years of anticipation following the thrilling conclusion of season two.
The official One-Punch Man Twitter account broke the news that season three was coming, and they even shared a stunning new visual from the show’s character designer for the anime’s first and second seasons, Chikashi Kubota.
Unfortunately, there’s currently no official release date for One-Punch Man season three. However, One Punch Man season 3 is expected to premiere in early 2024 or late 2024. The English dubbed version should be released soon after.
With Jump Festa 2023 in December just around the corner, fans are hoping for some concrete information about the progress of season three. They’ve been patiently waiting for over a year for some more updates
With production on season three in full swing, the biggest mystery is which studio will be working on the third season. Madhouse, the studio behind the first season, passed on production duties to JC Staff for season two.
For now, all we have is speculation about the studio and staff – but there are plenty of anime studios fans would love to take over, such as studio Bones.
One Punch Man Season 3 Cast: Who’s Back For The Next Season of One Punch Man?
While the official cast list for One-Punch Man season three has yet to be revealed, it’s safe to say that the mainstays of the show will be returning. Here’s who we can expect to see back in the new season:
|Genos||Zach Aguilar||Kaito Ishikawa|
|Garou||Greg Chun||Hikaru Midorikawa|
|King||Chris Guerrero||Hiroyuki Yoshino|
|Fubuki||Colleen McNamee||Ayumi Fujimura|
|Tatsumaki||Erica Lindbeck||Aoi Yuuki|
|Bang||George Babbit||Takehito Koyasu|
One-Punch Man Season 3 Plot: What’s Going to Happen in One Punch Man Season 3?
While the exact plot for One-Punch Man season three has not been confirmed, it’s likely to resume right where season two left off and continue the longest arc from ONE and Yusuke Murata’s manga series, the Monster Association arc.
The first two seasons of One-Punch Man covered the initial 85 chapters, 16 volumes, of the original manga. This means that season three is expected to continue directly from chapter 86, so expect more of the Monster Association arc.
Monster Association remains One-Punch Man‘s longest single arc, starting in 2017 and not wrapping up until 2021, so while fans don’t like it being split into multiple seasons, trying to adapt it in one or two would be way worse.
Here are some exciting events to look forward to: Seeing all S-Rank heroes, Garou’s transformation into the monster villain he always aspired to be, the invasion of the Hero Association, plus more battles with monsters.
Though the Season 2 finale left us without a showdown between Saitama and Garou, the formidable Hero Hunter is set to make a grand return in Season 3. So there is plenty to look forward to for Season 3 of One-Punch Man.
