With millions of fans around the world, My Hero Academia is arguably one of the biggest franchises within the anime and manga community.
The fourth season wrapped up in April 2020 and since then, fans have been desperate to know if and when the series would be returning.
Thankfully, the official release date for MHA season 5 has been revealed, along with new information on the third anime movie.
My Hero Academia season 5…
It’s good news for fans of My Hero Academia, season 5 of the hit anime series has been officially confirmed to be in production.
The renewal announcement was made back in April 2020 in the 18th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump, but of course, we also had that teaser at the end of the season 4 finale.
Whilst an official confirmation is welcomed, not many fans will be too surprised by My Hero Academia’s renewal.
Not only is the series incredibly popular around the world, scoring 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.12 on MyAnimeList and 8.5/10 on IMDB, but the manga series is still drawing millions of readers each week.
My Hero Academia season 5 release date…
- The My Hero Academia season 5 release date has been confirmed for Saturday, March 27th, 2021.
In the final week of September, there were a number of rumours circulating social media that My Hero Academia would be returning in early 2021.
These rumours of a spring 2021 premiere were confirmed with the release of an awesome new trailer for season 5 – check it out below.
On December 18th, it was confirmed that season 5 will premiere in the last week of March.
There are reports that season 5 will be split-cour, meaning that the second half could premiere in autumn 2021.
Third MHA anime movie…
In late-November 2020, it was revealed that a third theatrical movie would be produced.
The announcement came in the form of three posters from the official anime, manga and movie Twitter ages.
Putting the three posters together made the sentence, “He will meet ‘the three musketeers” – a connection between MHA’s One For All and All For One and the popular catchphrase from the original three musketeers.
The movie will release in Summer 2021 but at the time of writing, a more accurate premiere has not been confirmed.
This article will be updated as soon as more information on season 5 or the third anime movie is revealed.
