A brand new trailer for My Hero Academia season 5 has just premiered online, which also confirmed the release date of the hit anime.

With millions of fans around the world, My Hero Academia is arguably one of the biggest franchises within the anime and manga community.  

The fourth season wrapped up in April and since then, fans have been desperate to know if and when the series would be returning.

Will there be a season 5 of My Hero Academia?

It’s good news for fans of My Hero Academia, season 5 of the hit anime series has been officially confirmed to be in production.

The announcement about renewal 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.

Whilst an official confirmation is welcomed, not many fans of the anime will be too surprised by My Hero Academia’s renewal. The decision on whether or not an anime will return is usually based on two things: popularity and source material.

Thankfully, the series remains incredibly popular around the world, scoring 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.19 on MyAnimeList and 8.5/10 on IMDB, and there is plenty of source material left to adapt.

My Hero Academia season 5 release date…

  • My Hero Academia season 5 will premiere in spring 2021, but a more accurate release date has not been confirmed.

In the final week of September, there were a number of rumours circulating social media that My Hero Academia would be returning in early 2021.

These rumours of a spring 2021 premiere were recently confirmed with the release of an awesome new trailer for season 5 – check it out below.

Whilst a more accurate release date is yet to be revealed, the fifth season will likely premiere in the first week of April 2021, as three of the previous four seasons also debuted in that week.

However, there are also reports that this season will be split-cour, meaning that the second half will premiere in late July.

Hopefully, more information on My Hero Academia will be revealed soon, but fans shouldn’t expect another trailer or a specific premiere date to be confirmed until next year.
