Attack On Titan Season 3 Return Date Info & Story Details

The first half of the season was full of action and political intrigue, so what can fans expect from Attack On Titan season 3 when it returns? The Attack On Titan manga began in 2009 and was created by Hajime Isayama. The story takes place in a walled city where what remains of humanity takes shelter from giant, humanoid creatures known as Titans. After a long period of peace, a massive Titan suddenly appears outside the city's outermost wall and breaches it, causing other Titans to flood in and devour the unlucky civilians inside, with the survivors retreating behind the city's second wall.

The Attack On Titan anime soon arrived in 2013 and proved to be a huge cult success, due to its rich characters, in-depth world building and exciting action sequences. The anime is a faithful adaptation of the manga, where main protagonist Eren Yeager vows revenge against the Titans and joins the military - but soon finds he harbors a mysterious power that could help turn the tide against the giants. The story is full of shocking twists and horrifying deaths, and the show is rarely predictable. The franchise received a two-part live-action movie adaptation in Japan in 2015, though reviews of both movies were mixed. IT director Andy Muschietti is currently attached to an English language remake.
