On March 18, 2020, a series of announcements were made to commemorate the manga’s 20th anniversary coming up in 2021. One of the announcements was that the Bleach anime will be returning. The new episodes will adapt the manga’s Thousand Year Blood War arc. At this time, a studio has not been confirmed for the new anime project.
The new anime will focus on the hostile relationship between the Soul Reapers and Quincy that was teased in the early days of the manga, with an elite group of Quincy known as the Wandenreich launching an invasion of Hueco Mundo and Soul Society.
