The Finale of Season 2 ended at a cliff-hanger making us wonder about what is going to happen in Attack on Titan Season 3. However, the Good News is that we are not going to wait for another 4 years for another season of Attack on Titan.
Production IG and Wit Studio made a lot of profit in 2013 when they aired the first season of Attack on Titan. The show hit right chords with western anime fans. Attack on Titan gained an enormous fan following thanks to its availability on anime streaming sites such as Funimation and Crunchyroll. Both sites stream the anime series with English subtitles.
However, Wit Studio had no plans to renew the series for another season. It was only after hundreds of requests from fans on Reddit that Wit Studio decided to give Attack on Titan another season.
Attack on Titan Season 2 premiered on 1 April 2017 on MBS. Online Streaming sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation are currently streaming Season 2. In case you haven’t watched Attack on Titan Season 2 you can go and watch it on these sites. Adul+ Swim is streaming an English Dubbed version of Attack on Titan Season 2.

So coming back to the big question when is Attack on Titan Season 3 coming out? Anime streaming Site Funimation has the exact answer for it. Funimation crew was present at Anime Expo 2017. The entertainment company ensured fans that Attack on Titan season 3 will happen in spring 2018.

Earlier there were reports that Wit Studio might take a year or so to come back with another season of Attack on Titan. Funimation dropped shock bomb on fans when they cleared the air around the return of Attack on Titan.
A teaser of Attack on Titan Season 3 was also uploaded on Youtube by Funimation’s official channel. However, it didn’t look like a genuine trailer. The video only showed colored illustrations. One can only guess about what they can expect from the third season after watching this 15-second clip.
How Many Episodes in Attack on Titan Season 3?
Are they going to make 25 episodes Season 3 or will they disappoint fans with another 12 episodes season? The first season of Attack on Titan was 25 episodes long. The length of the first season favored the show as fans became invested in the amazing storyline of the Titans.

However, Fans were disappointed when Attack on Titan returned with just 12 episodes for season 2. So Can we expect more episodes in Season 3? Probably not. The first season was meant to introduce the Titan world to the fans. Therefore 25 episodes was a necessity. Now that the storyline is progressing at a better pace so definitely they don’t need to hook up the entire story in one season.
UPDATE – It has been confirmed that the third season of Attack on Titan will consist 24 episodes. This news came out from the official twitter account of the producers.

Future of Attack on Titan
Currently, there is no clarity on the exact future of Attack on Titan. There are rumors that the series will conclude with the fifth season. While many fan groups on Reddit are claiming that third season will be the final season of Attack on Titan. In fact, the studios might invest in a Live action Attack on Titan film. That’s a cool idea.
You don’t have to think about the film though, as Attack on Titan Season 3 is just around the corner and it premieres in Spring 2018.
