One Punch Man Season 3 is easily one of the most anticipated anime series right now and yet there are hardly any official updates regarding its status. It is for sure that there will be a third season of the One Punch Man anime series but no one knows when it will come out or even if the production work has started or not. There are multiple reasons why the One Punch Man Season 3 anime is taking so long to come out and here are more details on the show’s delay.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date Delay Explained
One Punch Man Season 3 release date could easily be set somewhere around 2022 or it could even take till 2023 as per some of the reports. The main reason why the anime is still not announced is due to the lack of source material in the form of manga chapters.
There is no way the creators can start production on the show when the storyline is complete and they need more manga chapters to finish. Further, there was a lot of fan backlash when the One Punch Man animation studio changed from Madhouse to JC Staff after the first season to the second season and the makers might still be confused regarding that.
It could also be possible that the One Punch Man Season 3 release date has been delayed somewhat due to the COVID-19 pandemic as it has also affected a lot of things.
