The 10th and final episode of the third Shingeki no Kyojin anime season's second cours ended with an announcement on Monday that the final season will air in Fall 2020 on NHK General.

Shingeki no Kyojin adapts Hajime Isayama's fantasy post-apocalyptic manga of the same title, which began its serialization in Bessatsu Shounen Magazine in September 2009. Kodansha published the 28th volume on April 9, with the 29th volume planned for an August 9 release. The manga has a cumulative 90 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation worldwide.

Produced by Wit Studio, the first anime season premiered in Spring 2013. Pre-production of the second season began as early as 2014, which aired in Spring 2017. The third season debuted in Summer 2018, with its second half premiering on April 29.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in October 2011 and published the 27th volume on April 9. The 28th volume will go on sale on August 6. The manga has also been published in multiple foreign languages, including French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, and Chinese.

Funimation licensed the anime series in North America and shipped the first season in two Blu-ray and DVD volumes in June and September 2014. The second season was released on a single volume in February 2018.

Shingeki no Kyojin won the 35th Kodansha Manga Awards in the Shounen category and was nominated for the 4th Manga Taisho awards in 2011, as well as the 16th and 18th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize. The manga also placed sixth in the male readers' division in the 2014 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! rankings.

Wait, last season? How long will this season be?

Since I don't think they'll end the manga before the last season starts, I suppose the manga will have its last chapter released in the beginning of 2021 or something, assuming the season will be a 2 cours.

I'm quite curious about their commercial strategy in this regard.

We'll see.

I'm excited! Can't wait to see how it all ends

Well, that's great. I'm glad we're gonna get a new SnK season.

Absolutely excited for it, that way a fantastic Story will come to an end. Brilliant.

This new is very welcomed, though I'm curious about something. If the manga is still not finished, do they mean with "Final Season" that they are going to adapt the manga fully? Are they going with an anime original ending? Will be split cours like season 3? Or are they going to end the anime with a cliffhanger?

Anyway, more Attack on Titan is always good.

Then manga will end soon? Or the final of anime will be different?


Its gonna finish soon, there probably is less than 10 chapters left

assuming that we would have 40 chapters, which is the amount s3 adapted in total

Pretty bad show overall. Generally hovered between awful and mediocre. Glad it’s going to end, though unfortunately the damage it did will remain for quite some time.
What a pathetic attempt to bait. Your criticism is terrible just like your taste


ignore it, its just a kid wanting attention, because he doesn't get enough love

I hope it means the manga is finishing up so that the anime wont suffer through an original ending.

So just to clarify...


Yep that is correct, everything that hasn't been adapted will be in the final season.

It didnt do any damage to anyone or anything, I dont know what you're on about. An anime cant hurt you. You can dislike the anime, but that phrasing is just weird, man.

Then there's me, who still haven't seen the 2nd and 3rd serie.

Jul 1, 10:27 AM by Maikocchi

Wow AoT last season is gonna be next year. I can't wait.

That is great news. One more push, and hopefully by Wit.

Fall 2020, it's far but it will be worth the wait.

You guys are endangered species at this points, remnants of the past.

"Damage" Heheheh that's fucking hilarious but alright sure keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

Hopefully WIT stays on board for the last ride.
