In addition to the upcoming new season, the franchise is gearing up for the release of a new movie, set in a post-apocalyptic society, likely the same one depicted in the sixth season of the TV anime.

The My Hero Academia anime is an adaptation of Kohei Horikoshi's manga series, serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2014. Studio BONES brought the manga to life with an anime adaptation in 2016, followed by Season 2 in 2017 and Season 3 in 2018. The fourth installment of the anime aired from fall 2019 to winter 2020. Season 5 premiered in 2021, while the sixth and most recent season ran from October 2022 to March of this year. Additionally, the franchise boasts three movies: Two Heroes (2018), Heroes: Rising (2019), and World Heroes' Mission (2021).

Crunchyroll is streaming the series, which follows a society of superheroes and villains, and describes the plot as:
Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
