One Punch Man Season 3 announcement has not happened yet but that doesn’t mean the anime series won’t return. Saitama has become an immensely popular pop culture figure, and the creators of the show will surely bring out more episodes.
Fans might be worried about the wait for the third season of One Punch Man anime, but it is known that there are huge gaps between two seasons due to massive animation scale and wait for manga source chapters. However, the total episodes count for One Punch Man Season 3 is out and here are more details on the release date, plot and the source manga chapters.
One Punch Man Season 3 Total Episodes Count
One Punch Man Season 3 will most likely have a total of 12 episodes which is the same count for the first and second season. It has been around three years since the last episode of One Punch Man anime aired and the wait for season 3 is getting harder with time. The main reason why it took so long was that the production house was changed from Madhouse to J.C. Staff and also the One Punch Manga series was on break for two years.

The first season covered till chapter 36 and the second season started around chapter 37 and the finale covered up to chapter 84. The One Punch Man manga series is currently is on chapter 127 which was released at the end of February. It means there are around only 40 manga chapters to be used as source material for “One Punch Man” Season 3 which could be the major reason why the series has yet not released.
