Attack on Titan season 4: Everything we know about the anime's latest season

Are you ready for the attack on Titan Season 4? With season three already behind us, and a fourth (and final) season to be confirmed next year, we've rounded up everything there is to know about the iconic anime series, bringing gigantic horror body and soulful action to many of our screens.

Attack on Titan, the originally marketed manga series created by Hajime Isayama, became a wildly popular anime back in 2013, and now has a total of 57 episodes over the course of six years - but it's not over yet.

The series follows a group of elite soldiers known as scouts, as they protect the last refuge of human civilization from a literal threat: massive giants known as Titans with a taste for human flesh.

There's a lot more to it than its acclaimed premise, though, with an intricate and eye-catching plot, keeping the intrigue between high-octane - and more often airy - action sequences. Whether you're looking for slick combat animations, dynamic and vibrant characters, or an uncompromising take on the horrors of war - as well as hope for something better - Attack on Titan delivers on all counts.

If you're already a fan, you'll want to know when Attack on Titan Season 4 is approaching; if you're new to the series, beware of spoilers below. Here's everything you need to know about Attack on Titan season 4 release date, teaser, and how you can watch it when it lands.

Attack on Titan trailers

Didn't expect the attack on the Titan trailer so soon? The teaser above was dropped immediately after the final season 3 episode aired, confirming Attack on Titan Season 4 and Fall 2020 (September-November) release date.

There's not much other than a couple of picture frames. The first shows a young man through the bars of a cage, with trademark lines under their eyes to show that they simply resumed their human form after becoming a Titan.

Seems like a new character, and given the way season 3 has ended - as the scouts have started traveling far from their home, several of the nine titans will still appear on the show - we expect to see some new and interesting faces added to the ensemble.

The final image clarifies that this is "the final season," with illustrations of what looks like a mix of current characters - Levi, Connie, and Mikasa - and possibly new ones too.

Attack on Titan season 4 release date

According to the above trailer, Attack on Titan season 4 will be landing sometime in the fall of 2020 (September-November). Episodes I have no doubt, although they come out once a week, and not the whole season falls at once. Depending on the number of episodes - previous seasons ranged between 12 and 25 - this could mean three to six months.

However, given the third season was cut into two parts, with the first running in July-October and the last running April-July, perhaps Season 4 will be released and the game schedule - in order to release the first batch of episodes more quickly, and probably keep Titan hype train as long as possible.

Previous attack on titan seasons tended to start broadcasting in April, although the first half of season 3 did bac this trend with a July release.

Where can I watch attack on titan season 4?

Previous seasons of the anime series have been streamed on dedicated anime sites Crunchyroll and Real, both of which are free to use for ad-supported streaming, with paid subscriptions for additional premium features.

Paying $7.99 / £6.50 / AU$7.99 a month at Crunchyroll will get you pure HD video streaming quality on all devices, no ads. You'll need a premium subscription to watch new episodes, as they're also releasing - a week late for those using free accounts.

Paying $5.99 / £4.99 / AU$5.99 for Funimation also removes ads for HD video streaming and allows you to download and watch offline. Whichever service you choose, you don't need a 4K TV to make the most of this series.

Not Attack on Titan on Netflix?

Yes and no. Only season 1 of Attack on Titan is licensed for distribution on Netflix, meaning you can only watch the first 25 episodes of the anime series. (See our Netflix planning guide for more details.)

Watch season 1-3 all together, you must use Facebook or real, or through the real channel now on Amazon Prime Video.

Attack on Titan Season 4: Underbed or Title?

There are specializies in the anime subbed, meaning you don't get an American English dub for the audio, but rather can read the English subtitles superimposed on the screen while listening to the original Japanese voice acting. The contract also returns us to the English dub for Attack on Titan - with the characters speaking English, although usually a few days after the subtitled version comes out.

What will happen in Attack on Titan season 4?

*Spoilers ahead*

3 massively expands the world of the series, with the revelation that the nation's bordered scouts called home not become humanity's last refuge after an entire season - but it's a place for those descended from the Titans to live in ignorance of their history.

With the scouts visiting the eldia country site, we're sure to see a few new locations and characters - as well as recurring ones. The Beast Titan and Reiner will surely make a comeback, this time at home. The story is likely to run into trouble in her kingdom, perhaps with threats to fend off until the scouts fight elsewhere.

We expect to see more of the nine titans we've heard about in season 3, being titans with exceptional powers like Eren or the colossal titan.

Like the last season, too, we'll probably see the final explosive clash between the nation of eldia and those oppressed within it - with the help of a scout, of course.

Speaking to the Japanese newspaper Yemiuri Shimbun, Attack on Titan, creator Hajime Isayama allegedly said that the manga would "end in one or two years" (via the comic), which ties in very neatly with the release and most likely an episode run from the anime series finale too.
