The spikers of Karasuno High are returning later this year to face off with one of their biggest challenges yet, Shiratorizawa Academy, for the third season of the anime adaptation of Haruichi Furudate’s popular sports manga, Haikyuu!!, which is fittingly titled “Haikyu!! Karasuno High vs Shiratorizawa Academy.”

The anime’s official website has finally been updated, and it now features a brand new visual:


The site also announced that Haikyu!! Karasuno High vs Shiratorizawa Academy will be making its premiere sometime on October 2016, which means it that it will be part of the autumn 2016 anime season.


They also announced that Production I.G. will be returning to animate this third season, with Susumu Mitsunaka returning from the previous seasons to direct the project once again. In fact, much of the staff are returning, including Taka Kishimoto who is returning to do the series composition, as well as Takahiro Kishida, who is once again doing the character designs.
