Viz Media announced during its Shonen Jump panel at New York Comic Con on Friday that Adult Swim's Toonami programming block will premiere the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind anime on October 26 with an English dub. The company also began streaming a video clip for the dub.

- Mick Lauer as Leone Abbacchio
- Sean Chiplock as Guido Mista

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind premiered last October, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Viz Media has licensed the anime. The show's last two episodes aired on July 28.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind is the manga's fifth part that continues the story from the previous entries in Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga. The story begins when Jotaro asks Koichi to travel to Naples to investigate a person known as Haruno Shiobana, whose real name is later revealed as Giorno Giovanna. The story then follows Giorno in his goal to rise to the top of the Passione mafia group and turn it into a band of honorable thieves.
Yasuhiro Kimura (Three Leaves, Three Colors) and Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!, Anonymous Noise) directed the anime at David Production, with Naokatsu Tsuda as chief director. Yasuko Kobayashi returned from the previous anime to handle the series composition, and most of the staff also returned from previous JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. Takahiro Kishida (Serial Experiments Lain, Baccano!, Haikyu!!) drew the character designs. Shun'ichi Ishimoto was the animation director. Yoshikazu Iwanami was the sound director, and Yuugo Kanno composed the music.
