Attack on Titan Reveals the Anime’s Final Season Return Date

The final episodes of Attack on Titan are getting closer to their premiere date.

After initially announcing a vague "Winter" release for the finale of the series, the producers of the Attack on Titan anime are finally ready to narrow down the show's premiere window: the final episodes of the show will begin airing sometime in January 2022. The announcement was made on the official Attack on Titan Twitter account. A special for the series, which will feature Levi, Mikasa and Annie recapping the events of the show so far, will air before sometime before the first new episode premieres.

The second half of the season will adapt the remaining chapters of Hajime Isayama's manga, including its divisive ending. As with the first half of the season, which originally aired from December 2020-March 2021, the remaining episodes of the series will be produced by animation studio MAPPA, who took over the series for Wit Studio (Vivy: Fluorite Eyes' Song, Kabeneri of the Iron Fortress,) which animated the first three seasons of the show.

Attack on Titan debuted in 2009 with a manga published by Kodansha. The series was adapted into an anime in 2013, and has since gone on to become of the biggest new franchises to come out of Japan in the last 20 years. The manga has over 100 million copies in circulation worldwide, making it one of the most successful manga series of all time. The series has also spawned multiple spin-offs and novelizations, several video games, and two live-action Japanese movies. A live-action American remake from Warner Bros. is currently in production.

The first three seasons of the anime, as well as part 1 of Season 4, are currently available for streaming on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Funimation. The manga is localized and distributed internationally by VIZ Media.
