Its first two seasons in its anime adaptation were well received, with fans waiting to hear about a third one. And yes, One Punch Man Season 3 is a real thing, coming soon to your screens.

On August 18, 2022, the official One Punch Man Twitter page posted a promotional image, revealing the eventual release of Season 3. Here’s what we have learned since then, including a release date prediction, the cast and plot, and more.

Considering One Punch Man Season 2 released in 2019, around four years after its first season debuted, early 2023 makes a lot of sense for One Punch Man Season 3’s release date.

Of course, this remains purely speculation based on pre-existing patterns. Expect this page to be updated with the official release date when it reveals.

It should be said that there has been some misinformation being passed around about who is working on the third season. On December 8, a self-described Twitter leaker account – which has now been suspended – claimed in a tweet that Studio MAPPA would be producing the third season, which led to the official OPM anime Twitter account warning fans about the claim not being true.

The tweet reads: “This is the only official Twitter account for the anime ‘One-Punch Man’. Please don’t be misled by unofficial information from other accounts. Accurate information will be announced from this account when it is time.”

One Punch Man Season 3 plot

Judging from the promotional image, the plot for One Punch Man Season 3 will likely focus on Garou. As to avoid heavy spoilers, since the manga has already likely gone through all the plot points which will take place in Season 3, nothing more will be said regarding specific narrative points.

But for those who are curious, One Punch Man Season 2 ended at Chapter 84 in the manga. Therefore, Season 3 likely picks up at Chapter 85. Since only the promotional image has been shared, it’s difficult to gauge which exact arcs One Punch Man Season 3 will cover.
