One Punch Man has officially begun production on the third series of the anime superhero series.

The story featuring Saitama and Genos will finally continue after the last season ended with only 12 episodes. So far, only two seasons have been released by the anime series, with only 12 episodes released for season 2. Along with the announcement, a new poster has been released for the occasion and acts as a small teaser for fans on what’s to come.  


One Punch Man is a superhero series anime that also acts as a parody of the genre. The show sees Saitama as the strongest hero who decided to become a hero for fun but has become overwhelmingly bored from villains unable to survive a single punch. As he tries to find any form of thrill or entertainment, he realizes that he isn’t recognized by the Hero Association and decides to become a professional hero. With Genos as his disciple, he searches for a purpose while more monsters and the ‘hero hunter’ Garou make their appearance.

The 3rd phase of the animation production was confirmed on One Punch Man’s official website, with a teaser visual released by Osamu Kubota. Kubota was in charge of character designs for the first and second seasons, with episodes available via Crunchyroll and other platforms.

Although the third season is in production, there are no confirmations on the returning cast and release date. However, here is the teaser visual that has both Saitama and Garou for the announcement.  

The wait for the next installment has been very long but fans will soon be able to continue the story in this fantastic anime. Although it does contain moments that suggest it’s a parody of superheroes, it has many serious moments throughout the show for many characters. The anime and characters are one of a kind, and it will be amazing to see what happens to Garou and Saitama in the coming episodes. 

One Punch Man has begun the production of season 3 but no date has been confirmed for its release. For information regarding the third installment, keep a close watch until more is revealed close to the completion of the animation process. If you wish to watch the first two seasons, head to Crunchyroll for all released episodes using the following link

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
