The Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 anime TV series is confirmed to be coming out in 2023.

More information is expected to be announced during the Attack On Titan The Final Season Special Event 2022 on November 13, 2022.

Attack On Titan Episode 88 will continue the story. The announcement was made after Part 2 finished airing on April 3, 2022.

A quick preview trailer was released in addition to a key visual that’s the basis for the video.

A third part to the so-called final season seemed as inevitable as the paths that Eren Yeager is forced to take. But when exactly will Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3 come out?

During the Anime Japan 2022 Red Stage event on March 27, 2022, no new information was announced. The cast of AoT simply hosted a special stage to discuss certain scenes from the broadcast of the TV anime Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2.

As previously mentioned, Attack On Titan Final Season Special Event 2022 is very likely to make more announcements on Sunday, November 13, 2022. There will be an orchestra concert featuring guest vocalists at 1 PM JST (midnight EST). The special talk involving the main cast and guest artists will start at 6:30 PM JST (5:30 AM EST).

On March 20, 2022, it was confirmed that the finale in Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12 will be titled The Dawn of Humanity after manga Chapter 130, the final chapter in Volume 32. Since that is not the ending of the manga’s story, there were two options: finish with an Attack On Titan: The Rumbling movie or continue the story with Attack On Titan Episode 88 in a third cour in the anime TV series.

What’s a “cour,” you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month TV broadcasting block based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

Attack On Titan: The Final Season is technically considered a split-cour anime season.

A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting.

Part 1 was unusual in that it began broadcasting at the end of the Fall 2020 cour and finished in the following Winter 2021 cour.

Fast-forward to early Winter 2022 and Attack On Titan: The Final Season was listed on FUNimation’s site with 28 episodes in total. Since Part 1 was 16 episodes long, it was known ahead of time that Part 2 would only have 12 episodes. In addition, it was confirmed during Anime Japan 2022 that the Part 2 Blu-Ray/DVD release would only include 12 episodes.

Based on that information, it was known that Attack On Titan Episode 87 would be the finale for Part 2. Due to a TV schedule conflict with special programming, the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12 release date was on April 3, 2022 (no new episode was aired on March 27, 2022).

FUNimation’s Attack On Titan Season 4 English dub was first released in Winter 2021. In early February 2022, Crunchyroll and FUNimation announced that the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 English dub release date was February 13, 2022.

The release dates for later dubbed episodes will be announced on FUNimation’s Dub from Home page.

Why Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 is necessary

The announcement that the supposed final season would have a Part 2 was not much of a surprise. Netflix Japan was teasing the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 anime months in advance by listing Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 1, which implied that there would be a Part 2.

In fall 2020, sound director Masafumi Mima tweeted a photo of a desk where he was apparently working on the sound work. What jumped out in the photo (besides the filthy keyboard that he apparently replaced after everyone noticed) was that Attack On Titan “Final Season Part 1” was clearly listed.

There were no similar leaks pointing to Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3. Instead, it was a logical conclusion early on based on the number of episodes for Part 2 and the overall adaptation pacing of the anime TV series.

The 800-ton titan in the room was the limited number of episodes being made for AoT S4 Part 2. Some anime fans were hoping that Part 2 would have a similar number of episodes as Part 1 and finish the story’s ending with around 14 to 16 episodes.

Instead, S4 Part 2 had only 12 episodes which either meant the story pacing would increase at some point or the intention was always to finish the story with Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3. But we could look to the history of the anime series to see that a fast-paced ending seemed unlikely.

The first cour of Season 1 adapted 20 chapters, while the second cour adapted 16 chapters with 12 episodes. Similarly, the Clash of the Titans story arc of Season 2 was a ratio of 16 chapters to 12 episodes.

The third season increased the pacing by adapting the 40 chapters of two story arcs with 22 episodes. Part 2 of the third season adapted the ending of Chapter 90 of Volume 22.

The first 8 episodes of Season 4 Part 1 adapted roughly 15 chapters, whereas the next 8 episodes only adapted 11 more chapters. With 26 chapters adapted, that left 23 more chapters before reaching the manga’s ending in Attack On Titan Chapter 139.

Ending Part 1 with Chapter 116 was a good stopping point since it resolved short-term conflicts, offered a gut-punch of a major character development moment, and then left anime fans hanging right before the Marley invasion began.

Part 2 (Attack On Titan Episode 76) picked up the story again in Volume 29: Chapter 117 – Judgement. The anime episode also adapted scenes from previous chapters, 114: Support and 115: Above and Below, since it was the beginning of a new cour.

Attack On Titan Episode 77 is officially named after Chapter 118: Sneak Attack, Attack On Titan Episode 78 after Chapter 119: Two Brothers, Attack on Titan Episode 79 after Chapter 121: Memories of the Future, Attack On Titan Episode 80 after Chapter 122: From You, 2,000 Years Ago, and Attack On Titan Episode 81 after Chapter 124: Thaw.

The Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 7 release date was where the anime version took an interesting turn. The Attack On Titan Episode 82 story summary discusses Annie waking up, but the episode’s title is based on Chapter 125: Sunset.

From there, Attack On Titan Episode 83 was named after Chapter 126: Pride. But, wait, did the anime just skip a chapter? Rather than moving Chapter 123: Island Devils to Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3, it turned out that the flashback arc was being temporarily skipped and shifted around by the adaptation in order for the chapter’s story to act as the lead-up to the climax in the Part 2 finale.

Attack On Titan Episode 84 went on to adapt Chapter 127: Night of the End, Episode 85 adapted Chapter 128: Traitor, and Episode 86 adapted Chapter 129: Retrospective. Then, Episode 87 skipped the OP and ED in order to adapt the previously skipped Chapter 123: Island Devils before finishing with Chapter 130: The Dawn of Humanity.

Based on that adaptation pacing, and including the rearranged content, that leaves 9 chapters for the anime to finish the story. Again, it’s very likely that the adaptation pacing will increase at certain points of the story, but that stopping point leaves plenty of room for Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part 3 to be a short, single-cour TV finale.

Presumably, Attack On Titan Episode 88: The Rumbling will pick up the story again in Chapter 131.

Arguably, an Attack On Titan movie ending the story would have been a better fit if Episode 87 had corresponded to Chapter 133: Sinners since the remaining six chapters would have been the perfect fit for a two-hour movie. But most anime fans would probably rather the final story arc be adapted by an anime TV series.

Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3 release date predictions

As of the last update, MAPPA or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 release date. On April 3, 2022, the release time frame was confirmed to be 2023.

Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information. In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when the Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3 release date will occur in the future.

Studio MAPPA has been given a seat on the anime production committee for Attack On Titan’s final season. A committee is a group of companies invested in an anime project that shares both the risk and the rewards.

As such, MAPPA has a vested interest in making the final season as successful as possible. They should also have more control over how the story ends. Whether the final nine chapters are adapted by a movie or a Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3, the real issue becomes the availability of Studio MAPPA. They’ve grown rapidly in recent years, and in early March 2022, they even announced that they’re opening a special sub-studio focused on providing CGI art for their projects.

Arguably, Studio MAPPA already has enough projects on its full plate in 2022. There’s Chainsaw Man, Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku, Disney+’s Dance Dance Danseur, Kakegurui Twin, Alice and Therese’s Illusion Factory, and the Yuri on Ice movie.

Considering that the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie box office in Japan broke the records previously set by Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, it wasn’t surprising that the Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release date was announced for 2023, as well. There’s also the upcoming Zombieland Saga movie about aliens that’s in the works.

Therefore, in order to keep up the animation quality by giving the final season a good production schedule, it’s predicted that the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 release date will be in mid to late 2023. Stay tuned!
