One Punch Man Season 3 release date is yet to be officially announced and it is not even sure when will the production start. Just like every other anime, which is based on manga chapters or light series novels, One Punch Man is also based on the manga of the same name.
The source material of One Punch Man season 3 might have been unfinished, it is why the show is taking so long to come out. Here is information on the season 3 of One Punch Man release date and plot based on the manga chapters left in the story series.
One Punch Man Season 3: Are There Enough Manga Chapters for More Episodes?
Most of the anime fans know about the fact that the One Punch Man franchise originally started as a web series comic created by ONE and then Shueisha picked it up for manga serialization. Yusuke Murata started to work as an illustrator and ONE continued his writing work for ‘One Punch Man’ manga series.
Man I seriously hope they update the animation for Season 3 of One Punch Man for Zombieman and his encounters and Garou 😩

Every anime episode of One Punch Man is based on the manga chapters, where season 1 covers chapter 1 to chapter 36, season 2 covers chapter 37 to chapter 84 (Total 47 chapters). It is why fans had issues with the pacing of One Punch Man season 2 and the animation studio J.C. Staff faced backlash. As of right now, chapter 122 is the latest to release which came out in late November and it gives just 34 episodes for the third season of One Punch Man.

However, fans don’t need to worry as ONE and Murata are actively working on the manga and more chapters will be released regularly. Also, the animated actions sequence from the Monsters Arc in One Punch Man season 3 will take a lot of time, hence the third season will never run out of manga chapters to get the story details.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date Delay Till 2020 or 2021?
One Punch Man season 3 is definitely a go given the huge popularity of the franchise and Viz Media won’t leave a chance to capitalize on it. There are very fewer chances for season 3 of One Punch Man to come out in 2020 and the Blu-Ray/DVDs of season 2 will release in March. As per some reports, One Punch Man season 3 could release in the late 2020s or mid-2021 based on when it starts production.
