The second season of Attack on Titan just ended with its usual flair and cliffhanger — a big battle and an unnamed character that’s probably going to have a big backstory. But we got a surprise at the end of the broadcast: the third season will air next year, 2018.
The show, however, didn’t specify how many episodes will be included in Season 3. The second season of Attack on Titan aired for 12 episodes, more than half of the first season’s 25.
It’s also worth noting that the wait between the first and second season of the action-packed anime was around four years. Even though they did announce a year, we are still not that confident that it will air accordingly.
