Bleach will return in Fall (Oct) 2022 for the Thousand Years Blood War Arc, which was announced in December 2021. Fans have been waiting for any kind of sneak peek for the upcoming season since then, but there has been no update from Bleach until now, not even a key visual has been released. This situation however will soon change after the author of Bleach releases a major update on the anime’s production.
Tite Kubo, the author of Bleach, announced on his personal blogging website, where he frequently posts his drawings (paid subscription), that the voice recording process has begun. In the anime industry, voice recording is usually done after the animation process is finished. Fans can expect a new trailer for Bleach: Thousand Years Blood War arc as soon as next month after this update from Tite Kubo. This image was also shared on Tite Kubo’s blog.

Bleach: Thousand Year Blood war arc tells the story of Quincys uprising. The Quincys were human beings who had the ability to detect hollows, but instead of purifying hollows like Shinigami do, they started destroying them. Shinigami started killing Quincy as they believe that Quincy were destroying the balance of the world by killing hollows.
It was believed that all Quincy except Ishida’s family has been destroyed, but later it is revealed in the manga that they weren’t exterminated, but were hiding and growing in power. After the defeat of Aizen, they declared war on the Soul society.
The upcoming anime season will be animated by Studio Pierrot, direction and composition will be done by Tomohisa Taguchi. Bleach is expected to return for at least 50 to 60 anime episodes as Thousand year blood war arc is a long arc in the manga having more than 200 chapters. We still don’t know whether Bleach will become a seasonal anime or a weekly anime like Boruto and One Piece.
Bleach anime is based on a manga series, written and drawn by Tite Kubo. He started publishing the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended the publication in 2016. The manga was picked up for an anime adaptation by Studio Pierrot, who aired 366 episodes between 2004 to 2012.
