The critically acclaimed manga-adapted anime, One Punch Man, has been one of the most popular animes to exist on the OTT Giant, Netflix. After the action and humor-packed two seasons, the series is all set to return to the streaming service supposedly by the end of this year. Fans have literally gone crazy after hearing this news as the show has been much anticipated for quite some time. The previous season was released back in 2019 and fans were in doubt if One Punch Man Season 3 will ever happen. But the wait is over!!
One Punch Man is a hilariously written storyline about Saitama, a superhero who is blessed with the extraordinary power of defeating any enemy by a single punch. He is left with no challenges in his clashes with ordinary enemies, which makes him feel quite bored and wasted to be a superhero. The story evenly describes two groups – The Heroes Association & The Monsters Association who can not avoid conflict with each other. The show has mixed all the genres- thrill, action, and comedy and has emerged as a massively hit series globally. Read the article to know about the return of your badass superhero in One Punch Man Season 3.
The Action-Packed Story Up to Now!
Saitama, a God-gifted superhero is extremely bored with his profession. No! not because there are no villains to defeat, but because he is too strong for them. It takes a single punch of Saitama to bring the enemy to the ground. That’s why he is referred to as “One Punch Man”. He is joined by his cyborg disciple, Genos, and gets on his way to becoming a professional hero. Saitama develops an interest in Martial Arts and becomes a part of The Heroes Association. But the heroes need to get ready for a whole new wave of monster attacks.
But the worst part is yet to begin. Someone has started to track and hunt down the heroes on the planet and if Earth loses its protectors, it will surely have a Doomsday soon. In the Season 2 finale, Saitama has successfully killed Elder Centipede, a Dragon-level member of the Monster Association which marks the end of this arc probably. A prequel is also available to the main story that was released in the form of an OVA titled “One-Punch Man: Road to Hero” in 2015. This plot may return in One Punch Man Season 3 as there are fewer volumes to the story available in the market.
The Team Which Made One Punch Man Lovable
One Punch Man is a highly loved character created in Manga by One way back in 2009. After its adaptation for an anime series, the series got written into episodes by Tomohiro Suzuki while being directed by Shingo Natsume in season 1 who was replaced by Chikara Sakurai in season 2. J.C.Staff had replaced Madhouse as the production studio and helped raise the bars of animation in the show. Crunchyroll, Viz Media, and Muse Communication have licensed the show while TV Tokyo has been the official broadcaster. For the English dubbed version, Animax Asia and Adult Swim (Toonami) have grabbed the rights.
The superhit series has witnessed 2 seasons up to now with a total of 24 episodes and 13 OVA’s released to date. One Punch Man Season 3 is expected to bring 12 brand new episodes to the counting.

Official Announcement of One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date
The popular YouTube channel “KANJIC” has brought several videos to date, giving us clues about One Punch Man Season 3 and its release date. The creator of One Punch Man anime, Yusuke Murata took to Twitter to inform the fans about a slight delay in the release of One Punch Man Season 3 due to some technical difficulties. The show has also faced delays before because of the ongoing Covid Pandemic.
As of now, the showrunners are yet to bring an official trailer or release date for the viewers but several reports suggest that One Punch Man Season 3 is all set to return on the streaming platform anytime in September or October of 2022. This is not a piece of confirmed news but as several sites have mentioned, we can expect the third installment to release by the end of this year. The series has got some seriously devoted fans and regularly, fans come to social media like Twitter and Reddit to ask the show makers about One Punch Man Season 3.

New Adventures For Saitama in One Punch Man Season 3
The story of the upcoming season will be given by the team of One Punch Man on October 8 this year. There are several storyline possibilities for One Punch Man Season 3. The first two seasons showcased the story of 23 volumes in the manga and there are only a few chapters left now for the manga storyline to be adapted into anime. There are chances of The Heroes Association attacking their Monster counterparts by invading and destroying their Headquarters. The story may give us some pretty awesome one-on-one fight sequences involving the top-class member of the heroes’ side like the S-class superheroes – Zombie man, Atomic Samurai, and Flashy Flash. Of course, our super-powerful One Punch Man will be backing up against the monster.
But what if the story takes a turn to Gorou! Do you know who he is? He is an extremely skilled hero hunter, just like Gorr, the God Butcher in the recently released Thor: Love & Thunder. Saitama vs. Garou battle will definitely be the most intense fight in this show to date and is expected to bring a lot of twists to the story. Garou is the best opponent Saitama can get and it will be very interesting how our One Punch Guy will take on this ferocious villain in the battleground. We will update you with the latest details including the release date of One Punch Man Season 3 as soon as it lands in the market.
