If you are one among the fandom of One Punch Man which was waiting for an update on its most awaited third season then here is a reliever for you. The makers have finally chosen to put One Punch Man Season 3 into production which on one hand says that still it’s a long way to finally lay our hand on the upcoming plot but on the other gives fans the confirmation that the manga series is not going anywhere, which is obviously a great victory.
One Punch Man Season 3 Announcement
Finally, when a not-too-informative but still important tweet popped up this Thursday, the fans were enthralled as it pronounced that finally, One Punch Man has made its way to Season 3 which was in the doldrums seeing the dramatic history of the series and its production. The One Punch Man Season 3 confirmation came up with a sketch drawn by Chikashi Kubota, the character designer who is associated with the manga series since its initial days.

The artwork portrays the rivalry between Saitama and Garou which hints at what we can see in the season. Though it gives so much less as to who the director and producers are- something that sets the groundwork for any anime series.
Mob Psycho 100’s creator ONE who is also behind One Punch Man expressed how stunned he is after the announcement while being happy with the news. He also came up with some stills of Saitama which enhanced the nature of the superhero who is motivated to put down any hurdle to find a challenging rival.
The expected plot of the upcoming season
The Japanese superhero manga series made many people around the world sitting on fence when the dramatic departure after season 2’s ending in 2019 has not been restarted even when the return was inevitable. Now that the announcement is finally here after three years, the viewers are eager to know what plot One Punch Man Season 3 will cover.
One Punch Man covered a story of a Superhero named Saitama created by ONE, the Japanese Manga artist for his original webcomic that made its debut in 2009. The superhero of the story has the power to put any enemy down with just one punch which makes it easy for him to defeat anyone. Saitama, bored with unchallenging rivals embarks on a journey to find the befitting foe and that sets the base for his evolving journey in the series.
For the upcoming installment of the series, the readers of manga series or webcomics must have already followed the hints left behind by the previous seasons. Covering the initial part of Monsters Association, season 3 will follow the arc battle between Garou and Saitama when the former will launch an attack. In season 2 we have seen the foundation for the upcoming season being laid down when the adversary between the two started.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date
Dazzling up the fans with the announcement of putting One Punch Man Season 3 onto the floor after almost three years, the makers put decimated mute for the release date of the awaited season. What we can guess from the history of the series is that 2022 is not the year for its release. Late 2023 or summer 2024 could be the possible period for its premiere if all goes well with its creation.
One Punch Man – The Team
If you have been engaged in things beyond the small screen then you must be aware of the dramatic production and direction the series has seen. One Punch Man was started with Madhouse animation studio having Shingo Natsume at its helm and the acclamation from fans and critics for the visual and sound effects, comic adaption, photography, and designs was quite natural after the creation of such amazing work. The season was aired from October to December 2015 in Japan while around the world release took some months in 2016 too.
After getting renewed for season 2 in 2016 only, the series shifted its production house from renowned Madhouse to J. C. Staff which put Chikara Sakurai in the director post. The season was a setback for all the things that have garnered praise in season 1 but still, the viewership was neutral which set the potential for season 3. Season two premiered from April 2 to 9th July 2019 on television in Japan while it was simulcast on various online platforms in other countries.
One Punch Man Season 3 announcement poster with the great void highlighted the same uncertainty for its production house and director too. Speculation suggested that the delay in the confirmation of the season was also because of the selection of the team and now so we are in oblivion as to what expectations we may set.
We are not sure of the anime team but fans expect a great season ahead that may keep the superhero alive in their hearts.
