Due to the success of its last season, fans are pretty much excited to see what happens in the third season. The second season only came out in 2019 after 4 years of a long wait so you can expect a little wait time in the third season also. But the main question here is ‘Will there be one punch man season 3?

Why did Madhouse drop One Punch Man?

The success of the first season of the One Punch Man anime was largely the work of producer Shingo Natsume, rather than the work of Madhouse as a whole. As Shingo Natsume was not available, Madhouse very likely didn’t want to take on the project. Also, there are other anime Madhouse fans who really want to watch among those Hunter X Hunter Season 7, No Game No Life Season 2, Overlord Season 4, and Btooom Season 2.

One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date

The story for the anime is based on the One Punch Man manga series by creator ONE. Fans are also waiting for the author’s other manga Mob Psycho 100 Season 3.

Saitama’s ability to knock out anyone by a single punch is something that the public is most impressed with, but without the third season, we will never learn more about Saitama’s struggles to make a place for him with the other superheroes. We will never get to see if there would be any war between Garao and S class heroes.

One Punch Man Season 3 Release date might be out in the summer of 2022. As for the OPM Season 3 Release Date, there’s no such confirmation out yet. However, the anime won’t be back before the summer of 2022.

You can always check out the manga to find out the remaining story of One Punch Man, but most people will still wait for years for the season 3 to come out because of its fantastic animation and storyline.

While most of us are greatly confident that the season 3 will come out sooner or later as the story was left at an interesting part but still there can be number of reasons for no season 3.

To be 100% sure about the same, we must follow few steps which includes researching about the anime’s Source Material, Popularity, Sales and Profit. This information alone can give you an insight about the possibility of the 3rd Season.

Factor 1: Popularity

Season 2 of One Punch Man did not see that much popularity compared to the season 1 but it is quite common in anime series. The opening song of the second season did not receive a particularly good response that did hurt the mainstream popularity the franchise received from the first season. The good part here is that their social media has bursting with new followers daily and merchandise is also getting popular day by day.

Factor 2: Source Material

Source material plays an important role in determining the possibility of a sequel. One punch man is an adaptation from Manga. There are currently total 23 manga volumes of One Punch Man out of which 1-7 volumes were used in 2015 for the first season. The next season used 8-16 manga volume that means we are still left with plenty of material for the next season.

Other than this, One Punch Man Volumes are still ongoing, recent one being released on 4 Jan 2021, we are hoping more volumes to be releases in next couples of months.

Factor 3: Sales and Profit

It is quite common in anime world for the sequel to sell less than the previous season but the catch here is to maintain the sufficient amount of profit to survive the next season.

In One Punch Man’s case, Blu ray’s sale saw a significant drop, but its manga and merch are doing great in the market earning an exceptionally good amount. They even announced 2 new games, one for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and other for iOS and android devices. Season 2 did hurt the One Punch Man franchise, but we still have high hopes from season 3 to fix it again.

After going through the above research, no one should be worried about One Punch Man Season 3 as it will be released very soon. We can expect the announcement in late 2021 or early 2022 as the second season alone took 4 years and got released in 2019 after the first season in 2015.

One punch Man is earning a good amount and its popularity is touching skies. Do not forget about the source material that can guarantee you the possibility of Season 3. Just sit tight, keep supporting the show and you will soon hear the good news.
