Unsurprising to anyone, My Hero Academia is getting a third season.

Bones announced season three during a post-credits scene in the 25th and final episode of the second season, which aired on Saturday. It’s unclear whether it will be a 12 or 24-25 episode long series but according to Crunchyroll, Bones confirmed the new season will animate the upcoming school trip arc.

The studio are said to reveal more information, including a release window and staff at a later date. We expect the new season to air between next year and early 2019.

My Hero Academia is a shounen manga by Kohei Horikoshi about a group of teens studying to be superheroes. In the world of My Hero Academia, everyone is born with a supernatural quirk, from augmented limbs to superhuman abilities, except Izuku ‘Deku’ Midoriya. Deku always wanted to be a hero growing up and after meeting his idol and the number one ranked hero All Might, is inherited the One for All ability; a power that grants him superhuman strength.

You can watch the first two seasons on Crunchyroll.
