As part of its agreement with Kodansha, Funimation has secured the international rights to home entertainment, video on demand, and broadcast distribution of the series in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The new season will premiere this July in Japan.
Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation, commented: “We’re thrilled to be bringing back Attack on Titan for its third season in 2018 and on the heels of the series’ long-awaited and exciting return last year. Everyone is anxious to see what’s in store for the new season. Fans have been clamoring with non-stop speculation ever since Wit Studio released a Season 3 teaser poster last October. We will all soon find out later this year.”
Produced by Wit Studio in cooperation with Production IG, the Attack on Titan anime series is adapted from the New York Times best-selling manga series by Hajime Isayama about the last of humanity fighting to survive against man-eating giants called Titans. To date, there are a total of 25 volumes in the manga series with an estimated 74+ million copies in print around the world.
