One Punch Man series creator Murata Yusuke noted that the team has begun working on season 2. However, no spoilers have been unveiled so far.
It is rumored that Saitama is probably in the midst of a love triangle which will affect him in a negative way. Although he will struggle to perform his heroic duties, the negativity is likely to take over him completely making him a super villain. (Via Game N Guide)
