The 12th episode of Shingeki no Kyojin‘s third anime season aired on Sunday ended with an announcement that its second half will air in Spring 2019. The official website has also revealed a new key visual for the second cours (pictured).
Bessatsu Shounen Magazine has been serializing the fantasy post-apocalyptic manga by Hajime Isayama since September 2009. Kodansha published the 26th compiled volume on August 9, which included the third episode of Shingeki no Kyojin: Lost Girls OVA series. The manga has a cumulative 76 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation.
Produced by Wit Studio, the 25-episode first anime season aired in Spring 2013. Pre-production of the second season began as early as 2014, which premiered in Spring 2017. The third season debuted on July 23 but delayed its broadcast of episode 11 due to news coverage of Typhoon Trani. This season’s episodes will be distributed across seven Blu-ray and DVD volumes, the first of which goes on sale on October 17, containing the first three episodes.
Kodansha Comics USA licensed the manga in English in October 2011 and published the 25th volume on July 3. The 26th volume is planned for a December 4 release.
Funimation licensed the anime series in North America and shipped the first season in two Blu-ray and DVD volumes in June and September 2014. The second season was released on a single volume on February 27.
A special event for the anime franchise will be held on February 3, 2019, where the lead cast members will make an appearance.
