OPM Season 3 Release Date & Renewal Status

OPM Season 3 Release Date & Renewal Status

Exciting news! One Punch Man 3 has been greenlit for renewal. This official announcement came from the show’s producer, Shueisha.

Jump Festa 2024, on December 16–17, may reveal Season 3 details and the release date, as seen in previous seasons.

As of October 2023, no official release date for OPM Season 3 has been announced. Production continues for an anticipated 2024 release, following the pattern of Season 2.

Expect the release no earlier than April 2024. It is also possible that the third sequel might be scheduled for a fall (October) release similar to the first one.

We’ll update you once the date is confirmed, being among the first to report it.

While we wait, let’s explore what we can anticipate in One Punch Man Season 3. What’s in store for the next season?

What Will Happen In OPM Season 3?

What Will Happen In OPM Season 3?

Fans eagerly await One Punch Man Season 3, which will follow the adventures of the super-strong hero Saitama, also known as One Punch Man.

The upcoming season’s storyline revolves around Garou and the Monster Association, continuing from the Season 2 finale.

The long-awaited battle between Cosmic Garou and our bald hero awaits!

Saitama will also face a new challenge in the form of the monstrous King Orochi. Will it require more than one punch to defeat him?

Season 1 covered manga volumes 1 to 8, while Season 2 adapted volumes 9 to 16. Season 3 will likely cover volumes 17 to 24, consistent with previous pacing.

Is There Enough Source Material For A Sequel?

Is There Enough Source Material For A Sequel?

Obviously, considering that they’ve confirmed OPM season 3, there’s enough source material. If there were a shortage of manga chapters, they wouldn’t have announced the third season.

The One Punch Man (Jump Remake) manga has a total of 28 volumes so far. The 29th volume is going to be released on November 2, 2023. With that, the series will have a total of 149 chapters.

Both the first and second seasons of OPM covered up to chapter 85 of the manga. So, the upcoming sequel will cover chapters 86 to approximately 130.

Which Studio Will Animate the Next Season of One Punch Man?

See, figuring out which studio will work on OPM season 3 is a little difficult. Because the first season was the work of Madhouse. However, J.C. Staff took over the work for season 2.

Normally, I’d assume that J.C. Staff would continue working on the sequel. That would make sense to many fans as well. However, as we all know, the first season was more loved than the second. So maybe Madhouse will take the project back.

Regardless, as of October 2023, there is no information about the studio that will handle OPM 3. Honestly, I’d hope for Madhouse to work on the sequel, as they are more popular and experienced with action anime.

Where Can I Watch OPM Season 3?

Where Can I Watch OPM Season 3?

The One Punch Man series is available to stream on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix. Once the third season releases, it will surely be available on the same platforms.

You can also watch the new season on Blu-ray, which will release as soon as the anime finishes airing. This way, you can binge all the new episodes at once, offline.

You can also try searching for the series on video upload sites like BiliBili, which is popular for hosting several anime shows.

In conclusion, the producers have confirmed OPM season 3. We anticipate a 2024 release, especially during the fall season starting in October.

Once the third season concludes, it will take another few years for the fourth season. Because, the remake version of the manga will need more chapters before another sequel can happen.

Either way, we can surely expect the One Punch Man series to receive a complete adaptation, given the popularity of the series.
