“We’re thrilled to be bringing back Attack on Titan for its third season in 2018 and on the heels of the series’ long awaited and exciting return last year,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation. “Everyone is anxious to see what’s in store for the new season. Fans have been clamoring with non-stop speculation ever since Wit Studio released a Season 3 teaser poster last October. We will all soon find out later this year.”
Produced by Wit Studio in cooperation with Production I.G, Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) is adapted from the New York Times best-selling manga series by Hajime Isayama, about the last of humanity fighting to survive against man-eating giants called Titans. To date, there are a total of 25 volumes in the manga series with an estimated 74+ million copies in print around the world.
