A curious news surfaced on June 9, 2019. During a live concert devoted to the Attack on Titan composer, a group of fans was going to gather for the second meeting. They have recognized Tetsuro Araki among the supervisors of the event. One of the fans named Daxie asked Araki a few questions about Kabaneri and Attack on Titan.
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.
Soon after, on June 20, 2019, other news appeared on the official website of the anime series, according to which Attack on Titan had been officially renewed for a fourth season. The same date, the official teaser revealed that Attack on Titan Season 4 release date is slated for 2020. However, unfortunately, it's worth noting that Attack on Titan Season 4 would be the series' last.
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 9.19/10 based on over 113,500 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.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Release Date
As mentioned above, Attack on Titan will return for another round in 2020. However, no specific release date has been announced so far. The period of the upcoming premiere would mostly depend on the number of episodes in Season 4. You may have noted that each season of the anime contained various number of episodes, but two of them premiered in April.
The current, third season of Attack on Titan contained 22 episodes and was split into two cours that included twelve and ten episodes, respectively. However, unlike the two previous seasons, Attack on Titan premiered in July. As a result, given the current schedule of the anime series, we assume that there might be two possible periods for the fourth season premiere of Attack on Titan, in April and July of 2020, respectively.
But still, the data above is only our forecast. We are tracking down the official Japanese sources on the subject of a specific release date for Attack on Titan Season 4. As soon as the exact data surfaces, 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.
