America may have the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Japan has My Hero Academia.


In the years since Kōhei Horikoshi's manga was first adapted in 2015, My Hero Academia has exploded with global popularity and acclaim, appearing on The New York Times bestseller list multiple times, selling over 85 million copies and winning multiple awards for both manga and anime.

Izuku Midoriya's story has been able to do something incredible, and that is to stand out from the rest of all the superhero media currently taking up cinema screens and social media. One of the show’s greatest achievements are its epic battles, some of which even Marvel and DC could only dream of bringing to life on the silver screen.

With season 6 now over (arguably the best chapter yet — fight us!), all eyes are on what's to come next for Midoriya and the rest of the Pro Heroes at UA High and beyond.

Join us as we break down everything you need to know about My Hero Academia season 7, which could very well turn out to be the final season...

Will there be a My Hero Academia season 7?

My Hero Academia's season 7 has now been confirmed. That shouldn't have come as too much of a surprise though as the story told in Kōhei Horikoshi's original manga hasn't been completed yet on screen.

That means the biggest question around season 7 isn't whether it's happening or not – it's whether this will end up being the final ever season of My Hero Academia.

Given that the anime has almost caught up with the manga, this does seem likely, although Studio Bones might want to stretch things out a bit due to the franchise's colossal success. If that turns out to be the case, then a shorter season 8 could be developed to help wrap everything up.

We will keep this page updated with all the latest news on My Hero Academia season 7 when we hear more.

My Hero Academia season 7 release date speculation: when will it air?

With that all-important renewal now confirmed, an official release date for My Hero Academia season 7 should soon be on its way.

Until that day comes, all we can do is speculate over a potential release date, which we reckon will could be scheduled for around April 2024.

There's usually a 13-month gap between seasons, and with the latest instalment coming to an end in March 2023, that window would make a lot of sense assuming there are no delays behind the scenes. We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear more on that front.

My Hero Academia season 7 cast: who could return?

My Hero Academia is known for its massive voice cast that spans the entire UA student body and more, but here are the main Japanese and English voice actors we can safely assume will return for season 7:

More like this

  • Katsuki Bakugo — Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese); Clifford Chapin (English)
  • All Might — Kenta Miyake (Japanese); Christopher R. Sabat (English)

When it was announced that the anime would be returning for a seventh season it was also confirmed that Romi Park will appear as Star and Stripe in the Japanese voice cast.

The character is an integral part of the franchise’s Dark Hero arc, which season 7 will be adapting. The voice actor for the character in the English dub has not yet been revealed.

Don't be surprised if more cast members are added, too, as new heroes and villains continue to join the fray...

Is there a trailer for My Hero Academia season 7?

With that all-important renewal confirmed, we're one step closer to seeing a new trailer, but it could still take some time as we're probably a year out from the show's return. We do have this ever-so-brief teaser below that was released on 25th March 2023 which as of writing has not yet been dubbed into English.

We'll update this page as and when more trailers and plot details are released.
