The series finale has passed, but anybody who saw Attack on Titan: The Final Season’s claimed final episode earlier this month may have observed that the tale is far from over! Fans of the long-running dark action-fantasy anime will have to wait a bit longer for the grand conclusion to their favorite series, alas.
But, for those who have been with you since the beginning, another year of waiting may be nothing compared to the nearly decade they’ve already spent following the stories of Eren Yeager (Yuki Kaji), Levi Ackerman (Hiroshi Kamiya), Armin Arlert (Marina Inoue), Mikasa Ackerman (Yui Ishikawa), and others. So, how long will fans have to wait for the genuine conclusion of Attack on Titan, and what format will it take (a movie, a special, a mini-series?)? Continue reading to learn all we’ve learned thus far.
Is There Going to Be an Attack on the Titan Movie? Titan Season 5: Will There Be an Attack?
Contrary to popular belief, Attack on Titan will not conclude with a film, despite the recent and enormously successful international theatrical release of Jujutsu Kaisen’s film. While both programs are wonderfully animated by MAPPA, their fates vary in that Attack on Titan’s future appears to be without movies.
Indeed, the final episode of Season 4, Part 2 stated that the show will end in 2023 and that it would continue in its serialized structure. Attack on Titan has gathered 28 episodes between Season 4 Parts 1 and 2, and this last part is intended to finish up the manga’s tale in 10 episodes or fewer, depending on their length and substance.
But make no mistake: the following season is the final one (or else fans just might start a Rumbling of their own).
When Will the Premiere of Attack on Titan: Season 4, Part 3 Be?
Fans, understandably, want more of their favorite program, and they want it immediately. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a little longer to see how our story ends, with the last (for real this time) season set to launch in April 2023. The good news is that it will undoubtedly be worth the wait, as MAPPA appears to be committed to taking its time to provide fans with an unforgettable conclusion.
Season 4, Part 3 will, according to a source on Twitter, consisting of “4 one-hour special episodes,” which will probably be distributed weekly via Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. If that’s the case, the good news for you fans is that once this last chapter begins, everything will go along quite quickly. Now, all we have to do is count down the days till April of next year.

What Will the Theme Be for Attack on Titan: Season 4, Part 3?
Attack on Titan: Season 4, Part 3 will pick up where Episode 87: “The Dawn of Humanity” left off, bringing us the full horrors of Eren Yeager’s potentially humanity-ending Rumbling. It will then portray the tenuously allied remaining members of the Survey Corps and Warrior Unit as they try the colossal and apparently impossible goal of stopping Eren from committing mass genocide on the world outside of Paradis Island.

- Euphoria Season 2 Release Date: Who Will Be the Series’ Stars?
So it’s evident from that alone that the next few episodes will be spectacular from start to finish, a grand climax worthy of one of the most popular and influential anime series of all time.
