After years of waiting, fans finally have a return date for the smash hit anime Attack on Titan.
Attack on Titan season 1, adapted from the popular manga by Hajime Isayama, wrapped back in 2013. It didn’t take long after that for the show to become an international sensation, thanks in part to its arrival on Netflix and other streaming sites in the U.S. and around the world.
The show spawned a live-action movie and video games, but most fans have ultimately been yearning for the next chapter of the anime saga, in which human survivors attempt to protect their communities from monstrous and hungry invading giants called Titans. They won’t have to wait much longer. Here’s everything we know about Attack on Titan season 2—and the full-length trailer released March 24.
