With episode 75 of Attack on Titan only a matter of hours away, we breakdown exactly when the series is expected to end!
Make no mistake about it, when the credits have rolled on tonight’s episode of Attack on Titan, there will be millions of fans around the world who will feel a little heartbroken.
However, that day may be further away than many people realise, with new information emerging that Attack on Titan will return for season 4 part 2!
So, when is the Attack on Titan anime series expected to end?
When will Attack on Titan season 4 finish?
- Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2 will premiere this winter and despite a specific date not being confirmed, the anime is expected to finish in late-March 2022
Today, March 28th, it was officially confirmed that the final season of Attack on Titan will return for a second cour.
The announcement stated that the next episode of Attack on Titan will premiere “this winter” – meaning late-2021/early-2022.
However, as a specific date was not confirmed, this can be seen as quite ambiguous.
Either the final cour of Attack on Titan will premiere in December 2021 in accordance with the production of part 1, or will release in January 2022 as part of the ‘official’ Winter anime slate.
In either circumstance, the Attack on Titan anime will be expected to wrap up in late-March 2022.
Will Attack on Titan anime adapt all the manga?
According to reports circulating social media, Attack on Titan season 4 will adapt up until chapter 116 of the manga.
The issue is that there are currently 138 published chapters, with the final chapter scheduled to release on April 9th.
With the confirmation that Attack on Titan season 4 part 2 will be produced, we are assuming that this final cour will adapt the remaining chapters of the manga.
However, what happens if there are still chapters left to adapt after season 4 part 2?
What if there are still Attack on Titan chapters left to adapt?
If the remaining episodes of Attack on Titan in season 4 part 2 don’t adapt the final chapters of the manga, the only option left is to release an anime movie.
Considering the recent box office success of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, which adapted an entire arc between seasons 1 and 2, this is not out of the realms of possibility.
This especially considering that Demon Slayer is arguably the second most popular anime in the world right now, only behind Attack on Titan.
So, if the anime series was to end without covering the full manga series, producing one final movie to wrap up the remaining chapters would be an excellent option from a business standpoint.
