If you are curious about the season's director, then you have nothing to worry about. Tetsure Araki has signaled he will be returning to oversee the anime already. The director, who worked on Attack on Titan's first two seasons, told fans earlier this year they had a lot to look forward to with season three.
“We really enjoyed making the anime and felt it turned out well in the end. Although the anime takes a break here, we’re still working on it. We will put our best efforts into making season 3,” Araki told fans during an in-studio interview.
“Will the person wearing glasses at the end of season 2 play a part in season 3? Will everyone be able to survive? Will somebody die? It’s hard to know. Look forward to the next season. We’re still having fun making Attack on Titan.”
