If you are already missing My Hero Academia, then you will not have to bare the pain for too long. The anime announced its third season awhile back, and Funimation just clued fans in on when the release will go down.
This weekend, New York Comic Con hosted a Funimation panel where the studio confirmed it would be streaming My Hero Academia next season. The company’s UK and Ireland branch then retweeted the message on Twitter, and the post included some extra information.
“News fresh from our Funimation U.S. Team at NYCC 2017,” the post reads. “My Hero Academia Season 3 coming 2018!”

For fans, the 2018 date is not a surprising one, but it does confirm the show’s comeback schedule. When Toho first made the announcement about season three, My Hero Academia just said the new episodes had been ordered. Now, fans know they can look forward to the third season dropping sometime next year.
The updated schedule follows a pattern previously set by My Hero Academia. The show premiered back in April 2016 and ran until that June. A second season was quickly announced and got released in April 2017. If traditional holds tight, then fans should expect My Hero Academia’s third season to drop in April 2018 unless Bones Inc. experiences setbacks.
For those who aren't familiar with My Hero Academia, the manga by creator Kohei Horikoshi began publishing back in July 2014. Bones Studios adapted the series into an anime in 2016, and the series has quickly become a phenomenon. My Hero Academia takes place in a world full of people with quirks, which you might recognize as superpowers. Except Izuku Midoriya doesn't have one.
Izuku Midoriya has always wanted to be a hero, but he was born without a quirk. When the world’s leading superhero All-Might chooses Izuku to be his successor, the boy’s world is turned upside-down as he gains a quirk, a new school, and a set of very dangerous enemies.
