Attack on Titan Season 3 Announced for 2018!
Good news, everyone! Attack on Titan season 3 has been announced, and this time nobody has to wait four years!
The announcement for Attack on Titan season 3 came at the end of the season 2 finale in Japan. Where the promo for the next episode would be, instead there was a short collection of images from the manga teasing what’s to come in season 3 before revealing that next season will premiere in 2018.
This promo sadly did not air on simulcasts (curse you, Crunchyroll!), but thankfully the announcement made the rounds on Twitter before I even saw the season 2 finale. Knowing before starting the last episode only served to increase the hype going into it!

So far we only know that we’ll be getting new episodes next year. We’ve no idea yet how many episodes or when we can expect them to be released. As for how many episodes season 3 will contain, there’s been some speculation on forums about that. Will it have only 12 again, or will it be a longer season like season 1? Based on some of the images in the preview and where they are in the manga, some suspect that season 3 will be a 2 cour season (cour = 11 or 12 episodes, today I learned). Others, however, think that they will try and put out shorter seasons on a more regular basis rather than repeat the four-year gap that happened between seasons 1 and 2.
I haven’t yet read the manga but odds are good that I’m going to start. There are just so many questions that I want answered, and I’m not a patient person – I’ll never be able to wait a year! Who or what is the Beast Titan? What caused the people in Connie’s village to turn into Titans? ARE WE FINALLY GOING TO LEARN WHAT’S IN EREN’S BASEMENT?
What do you guys think of this news? Are you as excited as I am? YOU SHOULD BE.
