Jump Festa 2024 will be held on December 16–17, 2023, in Tokyo's Makuhari Messe convention center. Earlier, news about One-Punch Man was revealed during the anime convention. Since news about the anime being in production was released in August 2022, fans have been curious about the release window.

At present, One Punch Man Season 3 isn't on Jump Festa 2024's lineup. Fans are growing increasingly frustrated as four years have passed with no news of Season 3, despite its official production announcement by Chikashi Kubota last year.
Fans are expressing their discontent on social media and holding onto hope for a surprise release date announcement at the event. Previously, One-Punch Man news was always announced at the anime convention. If the same thing happens this time, fans can expect a Japanese release window in late 2023 or early 2024, followed by an English dub six months later.
As fans eagerly await Jump Festa 2024, the anticipation for One Punch Man Season 3 continues to mount. Apart from the release date announcement, the event holds the promise of unveiling crucial details, including information pertaining to the studio producing the anime and even casting updates.
While fans shouldn't expect major plot revelations, a possible trailer might be on the way as well. Additionally, news on merchandise and spin-off projects might be announced too.
