The third season of Haikyu! had the recent reveal that the third season will premiere on October 7th, 2016, on all the usual networks. The series is being titled as Haikyu!! Karasuno High vs Shiratorizawa Academy and is scheduled for a ten episode run when it debuts. Now, the official channel has dropped a new minute long promo for it that also highlights the opening theme song from Burnout Syndrome, which certainly sets the tone well for it!

Plot concept: Ever since Shoyo saw a short-statured volleyball pro dominate in a National Championship, he’s been determined to become the next big thing in High School Volleyball. Unfortunately, he’s barely played the game. The only time he was able to play in junior high, his team was defeated in their first and only match against a team lead by up-and-coming setter Tobio. Now in high school, Shoyo finally has a chance to join a real team. The catch is: he must learn to play on a team with his old nemesis.
