Its 2020 and fans are eagerly waiting for One Punch Man Season 3 release date to be announced. The manga has been delightful for the last couple of years and fans are desperate to see those panels animated. So today we are going to update you on all the information available about the third season of this parody series.
One Punch Man is a Japanese anime series based on the webcomic created by ONE and its subsequent manga adaptation illustrated by popular artist, Yusuke Murata. The webtoon releases irregularly but the manga has a steady monthly release in Shueisha’s Digital Shonen Jump. Both the physical and digital volumes of this manga have seen immense success.
Season 1 was incredibly successful. Season 2 was below par but a lot of people watched it due to its pre-existing clout. It had many interesting revelations are fans are very excited for One Punch Man Season 3. Let us get to more details about this upcoming season.
Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of special training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. He can’t find opponents challenging who can push his limits
The second season raised everyone’s expectations and all that fans are now waiting is for is the third season. There are leaks about Overlord Season 4 and Demon Slayer season 2 getting released soon as well.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date
One Punch Man Twitter account already has given us hints for the next season. So overall we can expect the One Punch Man season 3 to be aired in 2022 or late 2021. Fans are currently waiting for next season of One Punch Man – full of action, drama, and story.
Both earlier seasons have been produced by TV Tokyo, EJMS, and Shueisha. So we can expect all 3 of them to produce One Punch Man third season. Viz Media has been the licensor. Season 1 was made by Madhouse and 2 by JC staff. We don’t know for sure but it will probably be JC Staff studio who will take up One Punch Man S3.
No official announcement or release date for One Punch Man Season 3 has been revealed as of now. Season 1 was released from October 5 2015 to December 21st 2015 and season 2 was released from April 9 2019 to July 2nd, 2019.
Also, no trailer has been released as of yet. We will share it here once released.
Season 3 Plot
Taking anime and manga difference into account we can expect One Punch Man season 3 to bring warfare between the hero association and the monster association. Also, next season will involve the character building of Garou – opening way for him to become an opposite pastiche to Saitama. Garou, a human wants to be a monster because of his childhood trauma.
Garou already took down a number of formidable heroes. Monster association invited Garou to join their association as their motives are same – the destruction of heroes.
The number of the demon level threats are increasing rapidly; hero association is not able to cope up with it. Heroes are getting short in number. The Monsters have a new king. He looks big and far stronger than previous monsters – maybe even Saitama will have a hard time.
Apparently the Hero Association will launch a major sting operation on the monsters. They will gather all the S-Class Heroes. How strong will they all be together? Will Blast appear again? Can Tatsumaki go all out in this fight? We will find out in One Punch Man Season 3.
Monster association held hands with Garou and have protected him. This indicates that Garou will join monster association. But it’s still a debatable question whether Garou will eat those monster cells and recreate himself as a full-fledged monster or not.
Genos has upgraded himself and far more powerful than before. We can call that in next season there will be more fights and more power. Season 3 will be based on the Hero association vs Monster association. It’s for sure that Saitama will have to face a lot of challenges ahead.
Cast for the third season
As of now we don’t have any official statement regarding the cast of One Punch Man series. But judging by the pattern which every animated series follows, we are hoping to observe the former voice actors back on the screen.

One Punch Man Season 2 recap

Saitama decides to learn about martial arts – so he joins a local tournament under the guise of Charanko! Meanwhile Genos is busy fighting monsters. Saitama also learns of Garou and wants to fight this guy who takes down every hero in sight!

Saitama arrives at the nick of time and protects Suiryu. He proves that he is a real hero! Suiryu is very impressed. Suiryu decides to follow that path instead of his indulgent lifestyle. He tries to come under Saitama’s hood but isn’t accepted.
