Popular shonen anime My Hero Academia will return for a fourth season this October 12.
The announcement was made on the official My Hero Academia website. It was accompanied by a promotional teaser trailer. In addition, the website confirmed the arrival of a new character, Sir Nighteye, who will be voiced by Shinichiro Miki. No dub actor has been cast in the role as of this article.
Funimation will screen the Season 4 premiere at Anime Expo on July 6. After that, Funimation will stream the series on its website as it airs in Japan.
The highly popular shonen series is based on the manga by Kōhei Horikoshi. My Hero Academia features a world where everyone is born with a quirk -- or super power. One boy born without a quirk, Midoriya Izuku, idolizes heroes and wishes to be one, despite being powerless. After a chance encounter with his idol, the hero All-Might, Midoriya gains the power of One-For-All. Now sporting a highly self-destructive quirk, Midoriya enters UA Academy in hopes that he can learn to become the world's greatest hero.
In addition to the new season, My Hero Academia will receive a second film this winter, following the international success of the first theatrical film, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes.
My Hero Academia Season 4 will start airing October 12.
