"One Punch Man" season 2 is headed to Toonami, according to the alleged Twitter account of the manga counterpart of the hit anime, which also claimed a premiere later this year.

The first season of "One Punch Man" was aired on TV Tokyo with various television networks following suit. There's no information as to why it is being moved to Toonami.

A switch to Toonami will mean a different timeslot for "One Punch Man" season 2, which some fans aren't too thrilled about. However, it appears that viewers won't have to worry about this network shakeup at all.

However, co-creator and executive producer for Toonami Jason Demarco debunked the report about the network move, claiming that "One Punch Man" season 2 is not going anywhere.

There haven't been any concrete details about the premiere and the plot for "One Punch Man" season 2. The only thing certain is that there's a lot of work cut out for the animators of the anime.

Rumor mills claim that production for "One Punch Man" season 2 has already begun. Because of this, media outlets believe that Saitama will be back to the small screen later this year.

"One Punch Man" debuted October last year. It is unclear if the series will be ready a year after it made a splash although fans certainly couldn't wait for its premiere.

In the first season of the anime, Saitama dealt with exciting opponents. It is expected that the strongest warrior's rivals will be far more challenging in "One Punch Man" season 2.

The arrival of Garou, the first foe to survive a punch from Saitama, is rumored to make his debut in "One Punch Man" season 2. Lord Boros, who was the final baddie Saitama fought in season 1, is said to return in the upcoming season.

With regards to the release date, "One Punch Man" season 2 is said to premiere as early as this fall.

Details about "One Punch Man" season 2 are expected to be shared during the Anime Expo 2016, where the anime will be featured including the first English-dubbed episode of the anime.

On the event's first day, which is July 2, "One Punch Man" animation director Shingo Natsume and voice actor Makoto Furukawa will take the stage.
