Daxie asked, "before the news spread across the Internet, we are most concerned about the question, is there going to be Attack on Titan Season 4?" Araki answered, "Yes," briefly and quickly. The fans also asked him, whether it would be the Wit studio, yet he didn't respond positively. Given all the data above, we don't claim that Attack on Titan Season 4 is confirmed, yet such a report may serve a hint that the working on the next season has already been started. So guys, we are looking forward for the official confirmation.
In our opinion, Attack on Titan Season 4 is just a matter of time, and below we are going to justify such an assumption relying on the facts. Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 premiered on April 29, 2019 in Japan, and is set to premiere on Adult Swim on May 25, 2019. However, the premiere has mistakenly been taken for Attack on Titan Season 4 though it's actually not true. In fact, the current round of the anime is nothing but the 2nd cour of the third installment of the series, which in turn has been split in two parts.
Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 is coming to an end soon, and you thereby are concerned whether there will be Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4. No official announcement has been made on the subject so far. Yet we don't rule out the renewal, and are even sure that Attack on Titan would return for another round. The primary reason why we believe in such a positive scenario is due to many factors.
No doubt you know that Attack on Titan known in Japan as Shingeki no Kyojin is based on the manga series of the same name by Hajime Isayama. And recently, the author issued the 28th volume of the manga, which has been released on April 9, 2019. As you may see, the release took place on the eve of the Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 premiere. However, given the fact that the third installment of the anime kicked off in July 2018, at least three more volumes were released besides. As a result, we now have four volumes of manga for another television adaptation.
Also worth noting that the current installment of Attack on Titan has received the universal acclaim, given a high score of Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 on MyAnimeList. The viewers have rated the current round at 9.03/10 based on over 28,600 votes. Summing up, we conclude that the odds are very high, and thereby Attack on Titan Season 4 is just a matter of time.
To be honest, it was clear that Attack on Titan is a long-term project. As you remember, few people believed that Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2 could happen someday. Yet you should realize that this anime is an integral part of Japanese folklore, similar to the legend of Godzilla. The idea to repel numerous attacks of the monsters exists in Japanese blood since birth. As a result of the fear to be attacked by some fictional creatures such scenarios occasionally emerged in various Japanese movies, literature, as well as light/web novels, anime, etc. Nothing is surprising thereby in the fact that Attack on Titan is so popular in Japan.
The last point in the decision on renewal will depend on the BD/DVD sales of Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3. Unfortunately, we can't add these data in the current forecast since the sales should start when the third season is completed. Yet frankly, we're sure that the sales would be impressive. The final question which is remained unsolved is when should we expect Attack on Titan Season 4.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Release Date
As mentioned above, Attack on Titan Season 4 is yet to be announced. Nonetheless, we are sure that the announcement of renewal will follow soon. Yet in such a case, when Attack on Titan is coming back for Season 4?
Even if the four new volumes are enough for another television adaptation, at least one year is required to film the fourth season. As a result, we doubt that Attack on Titan Season 4 could take place earlier than in 2020. The release date will mostly depend on the number of episodes in the upcoming season. If we are talking about a single-cour season, which consists of 10-12 episodes, we might expect Attack on Titan Season 4 next summer, in July 2020. However, if we are discussing a full, 24-episode season, it could take much more time.
As you remember the gap between Season 1 and Season 2 was about three years. Therefore, the development might last until 2021. However, in any case all the data above is nothing but our forecast. We are tracking down the official Japanese sources to learn more about the possibility of renewal, as well as about the possible release date for Season 4. As soon as the Wit Studio announces the renewal or any additional data about Attack on Titan Season 4, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
Attack on Titan Summary
The story depicts the epic confrontation between humankind and mysterious invaders called Titans who came from nowhere. For centuries, people suffered from their attacks. However, over time, they managed to invent various solutions to repel their aggression. People erected three incredible high and wide walls to protect themselves from the monsters. Unfortunately, the Titans, nonetheless, find the way to get inside.
As a result, many people have lost their families, friends, and relatives, given the fact that Titans eat human flesh. To avoid the next disaster, people living inside the walls started to use specialized mechanical equipment, to repel the attacks, on the way. Also, they created numerous squads capable of resisting the possible new attacks. Eventually, people came outside the walls to explore the neighborhood. But here they faced an even more dangerous threat.
The key storyline centers on the adventures of Eren Yeager and his friends. Eren lost his entire family as a result of another attack. Therefore, he vowed to fight with the Titans before all their populations die. To achieve the goal, he enlists the Scouting Legion, to track down and kill these monsters.
