New rumours suggest that My Hero Academia season 5 will release in early 2021, but what do we officially know so far and are the rumours legitimate?
With millions of fans around the world, My Hero Academia is arguably one of the biggest franchises within the anime and manga community.
However, a new rumour surrounding the fifth season of the hit anime series have recently been circulating social media.
Here, we breakdown exactly what we know about My Hero Academia season 5 and what these rumours reveal.
Will there be a season 5 of My Hero Academia?
- 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 announcement about renewal 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 of the anime will be too surprised by My Hero Academia’s renewal. The decision on whether or not an anime will return is usually based on two things: popularity and source material.
My Hero Academia season 5 release date…
An official release date for My Hero Academia season 5 has not yet been revealed, but the anime is rumoured to return in spring 2021.
This rumour started with several well-known ‘leakers’, but even the official Weekly Shōnen Jump Twitter page is jumping on the bandwagon: tweeting the rumour last night, September 30th, indicating there may be some validity to it.
Whilst you should still always consider unconfirmed rumours with a pinch of salt, spring 2021 does fit the typical release schedule for My Hero Academia and this was the premiere window that many fans predicted back when season 4 concluded.
Unfortunately, a specific month for the fifth season was not stated in this rumour, but we can assume this would be April with the rest of the spring slate. However, there are also reports that this season will be split-cour, meaning that the second half will premiere in late July.
We will update this article as soon as new information on My Hero Academia season 5 is officially confirmed, so keep checking back in.
