My Hero Academia fans rejoice – the series has been renewed for its fourth season. In a promo video released for the upcoming installment, the showrunners announced the series will make a comeback in fall this year. Although the release date seems quite far away right now, fans can at least rest easy with this new information.
My Hero Academia: What is it about
My Hero Academia is a superhero series based on novels of the same name written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It follows the story of Izuku Midoriya who is born with no extraordinary powers. In Izuku’s world, everybody has superpowers, and although he doesn’t have any himself, he still dreams of growing up to be a hero someday.
Track records of the series show that usually, new seasons are released in April, but this year there is an exception. The promo video was released in December last year to preempt any rumours regarding an April release.
Why Season 4 has been delayed
A September or August release is expected now. There may be two reasons for the delay in launch this year. The anime studio that produces the series, Bones, may need more time to finish the season filming. Additionally, Nippon TV, the official distributor, has given the slot of My Hero Academia to a new show called MIX.
Season 4 is set to explore Izuku’s journey as he undergoes the internship programme, and more information will be revealed about Overhaul, the main villain of the season.
For more details on My Hero Academia season 4, we have to wait until the fall of 2019.
