In a surprising turn of events, MAPPA announced today that Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3 is in production. The announcement came at the end of today’s NHK broadcast of the final episode of Season 4 Part 2 that aired at 12.05 am on April 4, JST. Attack On Titan Episode 77 was deemed to be the final episode of the series but the studio has extended the final season for another part.

Ever since MAPPA announced that Episode 87, titled The Dawn of Humanity, would be the last episode of Part 2, fans have been worried that the series would end without a proper climax and more than 8 chapters will be left unadapted.

While most fans were expecting the studio to finish the story with a movie, MAPPA had some other ideas. MAPPA managed to keep the news under wraps and just when the fans were least expecting, the studio announced the final part.

It is confirmed that Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3 is in production, which will start airing sometime in 2023. It should be noted that part 3 of the final season is titled ‘Attack on Titan The Final Arc‘.

As soon as MAPAA announces Attack of Titan’s final season extension, fans went crazy on social media. The fandom is super-excited to hear this news. Some fans expressed disappointment over a year-long wait for the final season’s release.
