One-Punch Man Season 3 is officially happening, almost three years after the second season wrapped its run on the small screen.
As reported by Crunchyroll, the official website for the One-Punch Man TV anime confirmed on Thursday that a third season of the hit show will be going into production. A key visual drawn by character designer Chikashi Kubota was posted alongside the announcement. The artwork features Saitama and Garou, but it doesn’t offer any teasers of what will actually evolve in the upcoming season.
Created by Japanese artist ONE, One-Punch Man tells the story of Saitama, a powerful superhero with the ability to defeat any opponent with a single punch. Bored by his flawless battle record, Saitama embarks on a quest to find an opponent who can actually challenge him. The series originally debuted as a webcomic in 2009 before transitioning to the magazine Shueisha’s Young Jump Next in 2012.
The manga has already been adapted into a popular anime series and multiple video games, including the recent One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. The second season of the popular anime series premiered back in 2019, laying the groundwork for another round of exciting fights, terrifying villains, and more Genos and Saitama adventures, with some bad-ass action scenes to boot.
One Punch Man’s upcoming third season is being developed alongside a live-action film adaptation, which will be written by Venom’s Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker, with former Fast X director Justin Lin slated to direct. This movie joins several other live-action anime adaptations, including a Netflix series based on One Piece, the perpetually troubled Akira remake, and a reimagined version of Your Name.
