One-Punch Man is one of the most popular anime on Netflix. Produced by Madhouse, season 2 of the series hits the streaming platform’s catalog on December 31, 2021. Now, fans are already curious and eagerly awaiting season 3 of the anime and we’re about to tell you everything we already know about the new episodes.
The anime tells the story of the world’s most powerful superhero, who has the ability to destroy any enemy with a single blow. However, the unchallenged hero’s life makes him suffer from boredom and depression.
Will One-Punch Man get a season 3?
Madhouse has yet to officially confirm the anime’s third season. However, unofficially, the anime’s Twitter account thanked fans for their viewership and said there will be a sequel to the story.
“Season 2 has reached its final stage, but One-Punch Man isn’t over yet! We’ll do our best to bring the anime back! I hope you’ll continue to support us!” the official account wrote.
When does season 3 premiere?
The history of delayed season releases can be the enemy of fan anxiety. That’s because the first season of One-Punch Man aired in 2015, but the second season didn’t premiere until 2019. However, the anime’s great success in 2019 may prompt the production to speed up.
Following this idea, some rumors claim that the series was supposed to return in 2021, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, productions would have been postponed to another date. There is an expectation that the anime could return in 2022.
The manga of the series is already at volume 24 and the information is that season 2 has gone up to volume 16 of the comic, increasing the possibilities of a production maintaining eight volumes per season.
Thus, the expectation of a return this year is even higher, with the possibility of a June or July debut.
The manga that inspired the TV series has sold more than 10 million copies and received the 2015 Eisner Award. In 2016, the anime was licensed in 190 countries and received nominations at that year’s Teen Choice Awards. It is estimated that the series has already garnered over 7.2 million views.
The first two seasons of One-Punch Man are available on Netflix and Crunchyroll .
