The official release date for the 4th season of the famous anime Attack on Titan has just been confirmed.
This show quickly became incredibly popular, so it is not surprising that fans cannot wait to see the next season.
After the amazing finale of season 3, we are all excited for the fourth and final installment.
Here is everything we know about the release date and some details about the upcoming season.
Attack on Titan season 4 release date
The fourth season of Attack on Titan will premiere on December 7th on NHK in Japan and later this year on Crunchyroll.
Many fans expected that Attack on Titan season 4 would premiere in October, but it ended up being rescheduled.
Besides, an Attack on Titan original movie that recaps seasons 1-3 called ‘Chronicle’ is scheduled to premiere on November 18th.
Some reports say we can expect a two-cour split season of 10 and 12 episodes – which is similar to how the third season was released.
That means we get the first part airing between December 2020 and January 2021, while the final part will come later in 2021.
The plot of the season 4
Spoiler warning: We will not reveal any specific spoilers for the upcoming season, but if you can read the manga if you want to find out more.

Attack on Titan plot summary
The story is set in a world where people live within cities surrounded by enormous walls. Those walls protect them from gigantic man-eating humanoids called Titans. The show revolves around Eren Yeager, who decided to retake the world after a Titan destroyed his home and killed his mother.
Eren enlists in the military along with Mikasa and Armin, and five years later, the three cadet graduates are positioned in Trost district adjacent to Wall Rose when the Colossal Titan breaches the city gate.
During that invasion, Eren is eaten, but he managed to survive after creating and controlling a Titan’s body.
After that, many started considering him a potential threat, so the military tribunal assigned him to the Survey Corps under Captain Levi’s watch.
