It seems things are coming to a head for Attack on Titan. With the manga coming to an end before too long, Hajime Isayama is making preparations to bring the critically acclaimed series to a close entirely. After all, it turns out the anime will be ending soon enough, and fans have plenty to say about the anime's unexpected announcement.
For those unaware, Attack on Titan hit up fans with big announcement earlier today. Season three came to a close, and it ended with a special tag. A teaser was added to the end credits of the finale, and it was there fans learned the show will debut its final season next year.
According to the announcement reel, the fourth and final season is eyeing a release late next year. There is no word on who will be overseeing the final outing, but fans seem to think WIT Studio will be tied to the project. As of late, rumors surfaced suggest the studio was parting ways with Attack on Titan despite having overseen its production since day one. However, this announcement has got fans thinking differently, so they are waiting on official word from WIT Studio about this final season.
As you can see below, fans have had plenty to say about this upcoming season being the last, but most seem fine with the finale. While netizens will miss the anime, Attack on Titan has yet to do fans wrong, so they are holding out hope for this fourth and final outing.

The lead character, Eren Yeager, ends up joining the military with his two childhood friends Mikasa and Armin after the Titans break through the wall and attack his hometown.

Season 1 was awesome.
Season 2 was really great. The third season has solidified for me the fact that #AttackOnTitan is one of the best #anime series ever made!
Based on the quality of the previous seasons, the final season should be brilliant. https://t.co/Oi50LX0KwQ
A whole 15 months till we get the final season of Attack on Titan now, it feels long but compared to everything else
Getting a season finale announcement for a year and a bit later is super good— James Perrott 🐸 (@jamesperrott1) June 30, 2019
