My Hero Academia’s second season was easily one of the best animes to release in 2017, and fans are eagerly awaiting the next. However, Deku’s story will continue much sooner than expected. According to Crunchyroll, the third season of the superhero anime has received a release window of April in 2018.
The release window for the next season was announced in an early look at 2017’s final issue of Shonen Jump, a manga anthology. Translators noticed the announcement and quickly took to social media platforms to spread the news. My Hero Academia had already been greenlit for its next season back in September as it was wrapping up the most current season. The spring premiere teaser is featured in a tweet below!

After finishing their final exams, the U.A. students are heading on a school trip that will be featured in the spring premiere arc. Deku and his peers will continue their training through a “summer camp” in the Forest of Magic Beasts. However, the League of Villains is moving ever closer to the training camp where the students will be forced to protect one another yet again.
My Hero Academia began as a manga in July 2014. In 2016, Bones Studios adapted the successful mange into an anime. Needless to say, the show quickly grew in popularity and is one of the best animes to come out of the past years. It takes place in a world where people have developed quirks- superpowers basically. Despite being quirkless, Izuku Midoriya (or Deku), has the dream of becoming a hero himself. With the help of his mentor, All Might, Deku will do all he can to make his dream a reality.
