Will there be My Hero Academia Season 6?
The MHA Season 5 stretching till September 2021 means that Boku no Hero Academia Season 6 will not premiere in 2021. It will get a renewal since 4 seasons of MHA have been adapted from volumes 1 till 21 of the manga. By March 2021, the writer has release 29 volumes.
