Will There Be One Punch Man Season 3? (Updated 2021)

So far, One Punch Man Season 3 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the third season of this anime, but the question is, will there be an OPM Season 3 and a release date for it?

Here’s what we know so far about whether or not there will be a new season and when it will be released.

The anime series One Punch Man, known as Wanpanman in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2012. The author One (Mob Psycho 100) writes the original story, but Yusuke Murata draws it into a manga.

One Punch Man is an action superhero series with parody elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Saitama, the most powerful hero alive. Saitama trained himself to the point that there is nobody to challenge him.

The anime television series One Punch Man has only had two seasons so far along with an OVA that was a prequel to the story. The first season was directed by Shingo Natsume and animated by Madhouse. The second season was directed by Chikara Sakurai and animated by J.C.Staff.

The first 12-episode One Punch Man television anime series premiered in Japan in December 2015. Since then, it has amassed a large fan base that is growing with each new anime project and still waiting for a continuation.

Will there be One Punch Man Season 3?

There will be a One Punch Man season 3 because it is simply too big of a franchise not to have a third season. Because of its popularity, particularly in the West, it prints money. It’s not a stretch to say it’s the most popular anime in the West that was released in the past few years.

It is only matched in popularity by My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Attack on Titan. So I wouldn’t worry about One Punch Man Season 3 because it will be released. The real question is if the animation will improve. From sound to animation, the second season was a huge downgrade.

Let’s hope that the animation studio J.C.Staff will deliver the anime with better animation quality next time. Or perhaps a miracle will happen, and Shingo Natsume will return to work on OPM season 3, or it will get a different studio like MAPPA, Madhouse, or Bones that can do it justice.

One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date

There is no official release date for One Punch Man Season 3 because a third season was never confirmed or announced, and that’s not surprising because currently there is not enough material for a third season.

There isn’t enough content for One Punch Man season three yet. If more than one volume is issued this year, that problem should be fixed. As a result, the announcement and the release date for One Punch Man season 3 should come next year.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for OPM announced in 2022 on the One Punch Man official Twitter account. If you cannot wait for a new season of One Punch Man to be released, you can start reading the manga from volume 17 since both seasons of the anime have covered volumes 1 to 16 so far.

Last Thoughts
