It’s official – My Hero Academia is getting a 7th season! The next season has been confirmed in a recent issue of Shonen Jump, so let’s talk about what fans can expect based on what we know from the manga and where the current season is taking place…
The details for season 7 have not been confirmed, all we know is that there will be a season 7. However, based on where the current season is at, we can expect that the next one will cover the U.A. Traitor arc, along with the Final War arc.
Keep in mind, things can change quickly and we may end up with a season 8 confirmed shortly after. We say this because Studio Bones is known for moving quickly to release new anime. Fans of the series have greatly appreciate the work that Studio Bones has done, saying they have provided My Hero Academia with a huge improvement in animation quality.
It’s possible for a new animation studio to take over the project, but at this point in time that looks like a very unlikely possibility.
What is the U.A. Traitor arc about?
The U.A. Traitor Arc marks the twenty-first narrative arc in My Hero Academia, and the third arc within the Final Act Saga. As Class 1-A and the remaining Pro Heroes gear up for their ultimate battle against All For One, Tomura Shigaraki, and the League of Villains/Paranormal Liberation Front, the stage is set for an epic showdown. However, the situation takes a turn for the worse when the infamous “U.A. Traitor” unexpectedly shows up. Read a full description of the U.A. Traitor arc here if you’re interested in learning more.
Want the manga?
The U.A. Traitor arc begins on Volume 34, which is currently available in Japanese – however an English release is scheduled for May 2, 2023 and you can pre-order it here. The manga will allow you to keep up with the story before the anime ever comes out, and the issues are typically cheap and very much worth the price ($10 on average).
