Heroes, it is almost time to return to UA Academy! Earlier this week, the creators of My Hero Academia announced that the fifth season would begin airing in March 2021.
As reported by Comic Book, here’s a quick glimpse of what fans can expect from the next season of My Hero Academia:
Season Five will focus on the “Joint Training Arc”, a storyline from the manga that sees Class 1-A competing against their classmates of Class 1-B, leading to Midoriya discovering some new secrets behind his Quirk in the process. Most likely, the other storyline that will be adapted will dive further into the origins of Shigaraki and unveil plenty of big moments for the future of the League of Villains!
On December 17th, Twitter user WSJ_Manga potentially leaked the release date and time slot. A few days later, an official teaser trailer was released confirming the March start date for My Hero Academia’s fifth season.
The fifth season of My Hero Academia is set to start on March 27th, 2021, and its time slot is scheduled for Saturdays at 5:30. If you’re looking to catch up on the first four seasons, they are available in full on Funimation, Hulu and Crunchyroll. The two films, Heroes Rising and Two Heroes, are available for rent and purchase on Amazon Prime.
