So far, there is no word on who will oversee this final season, but fans are still hopeful WIT Studio will be on board. The company has been producing the anime since day one, but rumors popped up earlier this year that WIT Studio would separated from Attack on Titan after seaon three. No update has been given on any official production shift, so fans are keeping their fans crossed for the best.
As for season three, this latest outing of Attack on Titan has helped cement the anime's place in history. After a stellar first season, the show did so-so in season two following a rather long hiatus. Now, season three has helped revive the hype surrounding Attack on Titan, so here's to hoping season four can bring the show home with justice.
