The One-Punch Man anime’s official Twitter has warned fans not to be misled by a recent leak claiming MAPPA will animate Season 3.
The One-Punch Man anime’s official Twitter account has put a damper on rumors circulating about who will animate their upcoming third season.
The message from @opm_anime urged fans not to be “misled by unofficial information from other accounts,” stating that “accurate information will be announced from this account when it is time.” While the tweet does not outright deny the report that MAPPA will animate Season 3, it does cast doubt on what appeared to be a major development for the highly anticipated return of the series.

Season 2 of the One-Punch Man anime concluded back in 2019, and in the three years since, there has been little information about when the series will resume. The manga from writer ONE and illustrator Yusuke Murata is still going strong, in its 27th volume at the time of writing, while the franchise has also branched out with the mobile game ONE-PUNCH MAN: The Strongest, which fans of the series for its cringe-worthy ad campaign. ONE has also kept busy with a new manga titled Versus, created in collaboration with Azuma Kyoutarou of Tenkaichi and King of Fighters fame. The series kicked off on Nov. 26 with its first chapter, released in Monthly Shōnen Sirius.
While One-Punch remains on indefinite hiatus, MAPPA has been busy taking the anime industry by storm. Their packed production schedule has included major hits like Attack on Titan: The Final Season, Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man, and the studio shows no signs of slowing down with series like Vinland Saga Season 2 and Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku slated for 2023. While One-Punch Man’s recent tweet has refuted their inclusion in that lineup, the series does have a history of moving studios. J.C. Staff took charge for the second, and neither was confirmed to helm the third, leaving room for speculation to circle around whether a studio like MAPPA may take the reins.

As fans wait for official information on the release of One-Punch Man’s third season, the first two seasons are available to stream on Crunchyroll. The manga is available from VIZ Media, while there is also a wealth of fan-made content to enjoy, including stunning animation from artist Detox112 and a comic by Hong Kong-based artist and author Cminglap titled One-Punch Man: The Fight of Gods.
