The release date of the fourth and final season of the widely popular anime “Attack on Titan” or “Shingeki no Kyojin,” as it is known in Japan, has been officially confirmed.
The Japanese public broadcaster NHK made the announcement on its official website Wednesday that the anime series is set to premiere on Dec. 7 from 12:10 a.m. to 12:35 a.m. (Japan time).
Earlier, anime streaming platforms Crunchyroll and Funimation also announced that the anime series is set to stream on its streaming services “later this year,” withholding however, the exact release date.
“Attack on Titan,” based on the best-selling manga series created by Hajime Isayama, follows the story set in a world where the last remnants of humanity were enforced to retreat behind the towering walls to escape the man-eating “titans” that roamed the land outside the walls.
Eren Yeager, with his comrades, vows to retake the world after a titan brought destruction to his hometown and killed his mother.
The Season 3 ended as they discovered the truth about the man-eating titans and the terrifying secrets beyond the walls.
Although the manga is reportedly still ongoing, Isayama was purported to have said the anime series will cover the entire story.
