It’s official, Attack on Titan season three will air in 2018, according to its official Twitter account.
Funimation released a 15-second teaser on YouTube for the third season, but no actual footage is shown. A series of colored illustrations hint at what’s to come, including bloody battle scenes, potential new villains and what appears to be memories of Eren and Mikasa. The teaser’s last still shows three people standing in front of the ocean with the words, “Behold, the sea...” on screen — a potentially big clue for what’s coming next.
Attack on Titan season two aired earlier this year, just a few weeks after the announcement of its premiere date. Funimation also took to select theaters in the U.S. to show both of Attack on Titan’s two recap movies, Guren no Yumiya and Jiyuu no Tsubasa ahead of season two’s debut. Whether or not they’ll do something similar for the third season next year remains to be seen.
