Saitama's face may be more popular than his titular anime at this point, but even despite this, One-Punch Man is still an absolute banger.

The Manga-cum-anime is growing more popular with every new entry. Now that we're two seasons down with the right-hook slugger - and with each of his enemies falling to his swings - there's more potential for foes to be able to withstand his powers.

Could this upgraded version appear in One Man Punch season three? But before that, the question has to be asked - when will Saitami return? Here's everything we know about the One Man Punch Season 3 cast, story, and more.

What do we know about One-Punch Man Season 3 date?

We got our official confirmation that One-Punch Man would be returning for a third season in August 2022, but ever since then, we haven't heard much about the upcoming adventures. Still, there have been a few rumours spreading.

In August 2022, the One-Punch Man Twitter confirmed production is underway, but we're still in the dark as when it'll air. Word across the internet has it that there could be hope for the third season of the show arriving in 2023, but of course, should be taken with a pinch of salt. 


This year should also be one to watch, as Shingo Natsume should be finished with his commitments to Yokohan Time Machine Blues, meaning he should have enough time to turn his attention to Saitama again.

Knowing so little about One-Punch Man Season 3, it's hard to say what to expect of the cast. Then again, what would the show be without the return of at least Saitama and his sidekick Genos?

We're very much expecting Makoto Furukawa and Kaito Ishikawa to make their return in these roles, while Garou (Hikaru Midorikawa), King (Hiroki Yasumoto), Tatsumaki (Aoi Yuuki), and Fuburki (Saori Hayami) all seem likely.

As for the rest of the cast, it remains up in the air - though we don't expect many baddies to return. They're all dead in Saitama's wake, after all.

With no trailers or hints from the cast or crew, it's hard to make any bold presumptions about where the One-Punch Man Season 3 could be heading - but the comics seem to indicate that there are some exciting stories to come.

At this stage in the comics, we're introduced to Garou, a martial arts prodigy and a self-proclaimed "Hero Hunter." That doesn't bode well for the heroes, to be honest.

The promo image also confirms Garou will play a major part, while you should probably remember One-Punch Man Season 2 ended with Chapter 84 of the Manga. 

The Hero Association sees him as a major threat, so it's likely that he will be the next target for Saitama and Genos. Or, more likely, they'll become a target for him.
