It’s taking place. One-Punch Man is once again the center of attention after spending years off the air and for a good cause. Since Saitama concluded season two, fans have been asking for the hero to return to the small screen. Earlier this week, manga creator Yusuke Murata infuriated the fanbase with a harmless Twitter tweet that hinted at a major announcement coming soon. And finally, One-Punch Man has declared that season three will mark a return.
Future releases of the anime One-Punch Man’s third season have been officially confirmed.

It was announced that a third season of the anime is now being developed after rumors that One-Punch Man will be making a significant announcement about the franchise’s future surfaced. There are numerous unanswered issues over which studio will produce the third season after the first season was produced by Studio Madhouse talent and the second season was switched to J.C. Staff with varied outcomes. The second season of the show ended in the summer of 2019, and because it had been so lengthy, it was beginning to seem unlikely that there would be a third.
What will be covered in this new season is the only issue left to be resolved. Within the larger Human Monster Saga, the second season began the Monster Association storyline. Because it was such a lengthy arc, the manga recently put this important fight to rest. The third season might cover the entirety of this conflict and conclude in the middle of it, leaving fans to anticipate a potential sequel. But until the premiere of the new episodes, everyone is just guessing!
