Attack on Titan fans are no strangers to waiting for content to drop. After a nearly four-year gap between its first and second seasons, they know all about waiting.
But good news! The wait for the series’ fourth and final season will soon draw to a close. While we still don’t have an exact premiere date, we will get Attack on Titan sometime this year. And even better news? The series will be simulcast on two of the biggest anime platforms out there: Crunchyroll and Funimation.
Crunchyroll will host Attack on Titan’s final season for the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, LATAM. New episodes will be simulcast with subtitles on the same day of their Japanese release.
Over at Funimation, fans can also expect a subbed simulcast in select territories. These include USA, Canada, Ireland, UK, Mexico, and Brazil. Dubbed versions of season four are planned too. However, these will only begin to roll out after the subbed finale.
Again, we still don’t have an actual release date for the final season yet. Attack on Titan dropped a season four trailer back in May. While fans were previously promised the series would drop in the fall, we haven’t heard any more from the creators. Attack on Titan’s new studio MAPPA hasn’t issued a statement about the release. Plus, the Japanese NHK network removed the show from its fall release calendar.
So, it seems like there’s a good chance Attack on Titan may end up premiering in the winter season instead. Not the best news for fans. Still, the Crunchyroll/Funimation announcement tells us we should still have the final season sometime this year.
