The voice-acting cast of Bleach’s new sequel will most likely be the same as it was in previous seasons.

How Many Episodes Will Be There In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Arc?
The release date for Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War is set for October 2022; no exact day has been set yet, but one will be announced very soon. The final arc will act as the 17th season of the Bleach anime, but estimating how many episodes it will have is tricky because nothing can be said until an official announcement from the producers about the episode count of the Bleach anime sequel arrives.
However, given the number of chapters the final arc must cover, it appears that the series will be a long one. As the ‘Thousand-Year Blood War Arc’ is made up of more than 200 manga chapters, i.e. 20 Bleach manga volumes (from 55-74), if all is covered in the Bleach new season, you’ll be eating tasty things for a long time.
The final arc of the anime series, Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War, will deal with Quincy, a new species of Reishi using human mediums. To keep the hollow system in balance, the Soul Society exterminated the entire Quincy race 1000 years ago.
However, as several instances involving Hollow disappearances and mass murders begin to occur, it is discovered that the Quincy’s are still alive. Yhwach the Quincy, led by their creator, begins regaining power and launches war on the Soul Society.
When the Soul Society learns of Quincy’s existence, it takes leadership of the situation and prepares for a full-fledged war between the two factions that will determine the fate of the other dimensions and the Soul Palace itself.
