Attack on Titan fans had to wait four long years between seasons 1 and 2. Fortunately, they won’t have to do the same for season 3.
At Anime Expo 2017 this weekend, Funimation confirmed that Attack on Titan will return in spring 2018. There’s even a (very brief) teaser for the upcoming season, although it doesn’t include any animated footage. Season 2 concluded last month, so this is a pretty fast turnaround.
Season 2 was 12 episodes long, half the length of the first season. There’s no official word on whether season 3 will be a similar length, although fans are naturally hoping for another 25-episode run.
Reports from the convention suggest that fans were understandably surprised by this announcement. The long wait for season 2 has become something of an in-joke in anime fandom, so many fans will remain skeptical until a real, animated trailer arrives. However, it does make sense that Attack on Titan‘s creators Wit Studio would want season 3 to arrive sooner rather than later to capitalize on the worldwide popularity of the series.
