The events leading up to The Final War arc are front and center in My Hero Academia Season 7.

My Hero Academia chronicles the story of an aspiring young hero named Izuku Midoriya who enters a hero academy to learn what it takes to be one. 

His wish is granted after the world's strongest superhero, All Might, gives him his own Quirk (aka superpower), essentially choosing him as his successor.

In an announcement made at Jump Festa 24 in December 2023, My Hero Academia Season 7 was confirmed to premiere on Crunchyroll at 2:30 a.m. PT on May 4.

Before the scheduled release of Season 7, Crunchyroll also revealed that a four-part series titled My Hero Academia Memories will be released on the streaming service at 2:30 a.m. PT on April 6, 13, 20, and 27.

This mini-series is set to look back at the iconic moments of My Hero Academia so far, and it will also include new scenes that will set up the events of Season 7. The first installment of these covers some of the show's earlier moments while fleshing out Shigaraki's motivations against All-Might.

Another My Hero Academia movie is also slated to premiere sometime in Summer 2024. The film began production in August 2023 and it is based on a new script supervised by manga writer Kohei Horikoshi. 

My Hero Academia Season 6 concluded its run in March 2023.

Additional cast members such as Nobuhiko Okamoto and Clifford Chapin (Katsuki Bakugo), Yuki Kaji and David Matranga (Shoto Todoroki), and Kenta Miyake and Christopher Sabat (All Might) are all poised for a comeback.

What Will Happen in My Hero Academia Season 7?

My Hero Academia Season 6 ended with the arrival of America's famous No. 1 hero, Star and Stripe, in Japan to lend a hand in the fight against All For One. 

Before Star and Stripe's arrival, though, Deku and the rest of the good guys experienced bloodshed and betrayal, ending with the main big bad, All For One, breaking out of prison. 

The clash between the Paranormal Liberation and the heroes is set to be one of the main storylines in Season 7. 

Star and Stripe's highly-anticipated battle with All For One is also poised to happen. Fans of the manga know too well what will happen to that fight, and it's not pretty. 

A looming (and heartbreaking) betrayal from a member of Class 1A is also set to happen as well as a potential clash between Dabi and Shoto. 

All signs are pointing to the Final War with an inevitable all-out war between the forces of Deku and All For One. 

Is There a Trailer for My Hero Academia Season 7?
