Ahead of Funimation‘s “The attack of the Titans Last season Panel, ”at the Anime NYC convention, it was announced that the epic sequel to the hit anime will begin airing on January 9, 2022. Also launching on Crisp and Hulu, the series will be available in more than 200 countries and territories around the world, with subtitles in eight languages.
Based on the hit manga series, the award-winning anime franchise was created by Hajime Isayama; the series is currently produced by MAPPA (Banana fish; Jujutsu kaisen; Zombie Land Saga) and licensed by Kodansha (AKIRA; Fairy tale; Fire force; This time I reincarnated in slime).
In the show, many years ago, humanity was forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a walled city to escape the gigantic man-eating Titans who lurked outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scout Regiment dared to step away behind the safety of the walls – but even these brave warriors rarely returned alive.
In the epic sequel, the lines between friends and foes become even more blurred. The Heaven War explodes in Shiganshina and as the battle rages on, the true intentions of the brains behind the current state of the world become clear.
