My Hero Academia spoilers follow.

My Hero Academia season six, which finished airing in spring 2023, took the series to new heights. We watched our favourite heroes storm the Paranormal Liberation Front's base, witnessed Shigaraki devastate an entire city and even followed Deku through a serious emo phase.

It also included a ton of great character development. We learned more about characters like Hawks and Endeavour, and the show gave mainstays like Ururaka and Bakugo significant emotional moments.

But now the season is over, what are fans to do? Come with us as we do some serious speculating about My Hero Academia season seven's release date and plot.

My Hero Academia season 7 release date: When will My Hero Academia season 7 air?

My Hero Academia season seven will officially begin airing on May 4, at 10:30 am GMT to be specific. Crunchyroll confirmed this release window alongside a schedule for My Hero Academia: Memories – a four-part recap miniseries that will air in the weeks leading up to season seven beginning properly.

The four special episodes will be available each Saturday, again at 10:30 am GMT, from April 6 onwards. Although fans can mainly expect to see highlights from previous seasons, we've also been promised a few new scenes that may connect with plot points from season seven.

Meanwhile, it was also confirmed that the fourth My Hero Academia anime movie will appear in summer 2024.

The first three movies featured completely original stories, and a new script has been written for the fourth film. Author Kohei Horikoshi has been supervising – making sure his characters stay consistent with the series. The film went into production during August 2023, so it's a fairly fast turnaround for animation.

My Hero Academia season 7 plot: What will happen in My Hero Academia season 7?

Avid My Hero Academia fans will know that the series is entering its final phase. Season six set up and delivered a set of arcs that resulted in the series' main villain All for One breaking free of his prison and gathering an army of diabolical bad guys, but what happens next?

Viewers whose curiosity is getting the better of them can find out what's in store thanks to the ongoing, original manga. We won't give the whole game away, but beware of some major spoilers below.

My Hero Academia season seven will likely pick up where season six left off, with the introduction of USA hero 'Star and Stripe'. If the story follows the manga, then we'll see her battle against All for One and witness the resulting fallout after her devastating loss.

The Star and Stripe arc starts on chapter 329 of the My Hero Academia manga, so you’ll need to pick up volume 34 if you want to prep for the series.

Season seven will likely also cover a plot involving one member of Class 1A betraying the heroes, and resolve the ongoing Todoroki family drama with an explosive battle between Dabi and Shoto.

Finally, the series will move into its endgame: a major conflict between all of the heroes we've come to love, and the combined forces of All for One and Shigaraki.

My Hero Academia fans have one more thing to look forward to: a new movie. In August 2023, creator Kohei Horikoshi confirmed that a fourth film based on the franchise would be set after the events of season six.

He said in a statement: "Hello everyone, I'm Kohei Horikoshi, author of My Hero Academia. A 4th movie for [My Hero Academia] has just been confirmed! And that's thanks to your support, thank you so much!

"It'll take place after the War from season six, meaning that the collapsed society will be the stage this time. After having been through so much and learning so many things, who will Deku and his friends fight against this time? What will they protect?! Look forward to it!"

My Hero Academia season 7 trailer: Any My Hero Academia season 7 footage yet?

You can watch a short trailer for My Hero Academia season seven at the top of this article (although it's currently only available in Japanese). The trailer teases clashes between Izuku and All for One, and hints at the arrival of Star and Stripe.

A more in-depth, second trailer was released in March 2024 roughly a month before the show's return – you can watch that above. Although still only available in Japanese, the trailer does include some pretty epic-looking moments.

Fans will particularly want to pay attention to a moment about 13 seconds in, which certainly looks like a showdown between Dabi and Shoto Todoroki.

It's a moment the show has been building to since season five, and promises to be a real highlight of these upcoming episodes – not to mention Dabi's frankly awesome new look (it's about time My Hero Academia got a new white-haired character).

My Hero Academia is available to watch on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
