Murata Yusuke, the director of the "One Punch Man" anime has announced earlier this year that they are working on the second season. It is rumored that the season 2 of "One Punch Man" will contain events that revolved around the "Hero Hunter" arc in the manga.
If the rumors are true, Saitama might face against an opponent named Garou, a former student of the class S hero "Silver Fang," Crossmap shared. As for the season 2 episode 1 title, it may be called "The Strongest Hero," alluding to Saitama's ability to defeat any enemy with just one punch.
