Thankfully, the official release date for MHA season 5 has now been revealed, along with new information on the third anime movie.
My Hero Academia season 5…
The announcement concerning season 5 was made back in April 2020 in the 18th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump, but of course, we also had that teaser at the end of the season 4 finale.
Although, to be honest, no one was too surprised by the renewal.
Not only is the series incredibly popular around the world, scoring 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.10/10 on MyAnimeList and 8.5/10 on IMDB, but the manga series is still drawing millions of readers each week.

My Hero Academia movie…
In late-November 2020, it was revealed that a third theatrical movie would be produced.
The announcement came in the form of three posters from the official anime, manga and movie Twitter ages.
Putting the three posters together made the sentence, “He will meet ‘the three musketeers” – a connection between MHA’s One For All and All For One and the popular catchphrase from the original three musketeers.
The movie will release in the last quarter of 2021 but at the time of writing, a more accurate premiere has not been confirmed.
This article will be updated as soon as more information on season 5 or the third anime movie is revealed.
