Bleach: Thousand Year-Blood War Plot
As previously stated, the upcoming season of the Bleach anime series will adapt the final arc of the manga series, which will be aired in 2019. The arc known as the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc spans more than 200 chapters in total, and it begins with Chapter 480 and continues until the end of the manga series, which has a total of 698 chapters, meaning Bleach Season 17 will cover 218 chapters.
Season 17 of Bleach will almost certainly pick up where Season 16 left off: The Wandenreich, which also translates to “Invisible Empire” is a highly classified group of the Quincy. A thousand years ago, the Quincy were defeated by the Shinigami in a war that lasted for several months. As a result, they were forced to flee and hide for years, during which time they grew in power.

It is expected that the Wandenreich will launch an attack on Soul Society, resulting in a full-scale war between the Shinigami and the Quincy. Ichigo, the protagonist of Soul Society, will go through extensive training in order to become more powerful so that he can save society and fight back against the reapers.
Update: In Feb. 2022, Bleach creator Tite Kubo did a Q&A with members of his fan club, and it was there the mangaka shared two major updates about the return of the anime.
According to the manga artist, the anime adaptation of the Thousand-Year Blood War arc will take its time in order to address issues that the original source couldn’t address at the time. Kubo collaborated closely with the anime’s production team to provide the answers, so fans of the anime series can expect new content in this adaptation of the series. For example, the final season will reveal who exactly targeted Rukia during the first Quincy Invasion, and that’s only the beginning of what will be revealed in the final season.
