One Punch Man Season 3 is now under production, according to the official One Punch Man Twitter account. A link to the website that made the same news was included in the tweet as well. The first episode of the series’ first season premiered a few months after the announcement of the season in October 2015. Despite the announcement of the second season in 2016, the first episode didn’t air until later in 2019. The second season, however, will have a new studio and director, according to a statement issued in September 2017.
Fans can anticipate the release of this series sometime in September 2023, if no such circumstance develops while the third season is being produced. Fans may find out more information as the year goes on by visiting the official website and the r/OnePunchMan subreddit.

It’s quite likely that this season will follow the pattern set by the first two, which each included 12 episodes. About 41 chapters were covered in the first season, while 43 chapters were covered in the second season. The Monsters Association arc will continue in the future season beginning with chapter 85, but it won’t end there. This is so that the third season can adapt all 87 chapters, which it cannot do without having 24 episodes because the most recent chapter finished with the aforementioned arc.
Garou will be the season’s main emphasis. The Monsters Association’s monsters cause mayhem, and the heroes have plans to invade their lair as well. The heroes who were previously introduced will get some screen time to demonstrate their abilities. That said, this season will also see the introduction of other heroes, such as Zombieman. In the following season, Orochi, the president of the Monsters Association, will also make his appearance.
It’s quite likely that chapter 138 will be adapted for One Punch Man season 3. This is due to the series’ introduction of the enigmatic being known only as God. This will present the show with the ideal opportunity to end it with a significant cliffhanger and a better ending than season 2. A lot of fights will be featured in the series, including Garou vs. Bang and Garou vs. Saitama, assuming that it decides to adapt the full Monsters Association arc and have 24 episodes.
As 2022 goes on, check back for additional updates about the One Punch Man Season 3 of the show.
