The anime TV series Attack On Titan Season 4, Part 3 seems as inevitable as the paths Eren Yeager must take. But when will Shingeki no Kyojin season 4 part 3 come out?
Attack On Titan: The Final Season is technically considered a split-court anime season.
What is a ‘cour’, you may ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month TV broadcast block based on the physical seasons that usually consist of 10 to 13 episodes.
A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a break of several months before resuming TV broadcasts.
Part 1 was unusual in that it started broadcasting at the end of the fall 2020 cour and ended the following winter 2021 cour.
Fast-forward to the present and Attack On Titan: The Final Season was mention on the FUNimation site with a total of 28 episodes. Since part 1 was 16 episodes long, there are 12 episodes left for part 2.
Based on that information, Attack On Titan Episode 87 will be the finale of Part 2. Due to a TV schedule conflicting with the special programming, the release date of Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12 is April 3, 2022 (no new episode aired March 27, 2022).
The Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music has not yet been announced.
For S4 Part 2, the OP “The Rumbling” was performed by SiM.
The S4 Part 2 ED “Akuma no Ko” was performed by Ai Higuchi.

Why Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 Or A Movie Seems Necessary
The announcement that the supposed final season would have a part 2 wasn’t much of a surprise. Netflix Japan teased the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 anime months in advance by listing Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 1, implying that a Part 2 was coming.
In the fall of 2020, sound director Masafumi Mima tweeted a photo of a desk where he was apparently doing sound work. What stood out in the photo (besides the filthy keyboard he apparently replaced after everyone noticed) was that Attack On Titan “Final Season Part 1” was clearly labeled.
There are no similar leaks pointing to Attack On Titan Season 4, Part 3. Instead, it’s a logical conclusion based on the episode count for Part 2 and the overall adaptation pace of the anime TV series.
The 800 pound titan in the room is the limited number of episodes being made for S4 Part 2. Some anime fans hoped that part 2 would have a similar number of episodes as part 1 and the story would end with about 14 to 16 episodes.
Instead, with only 12 episodes, S4 Part 2 means either that the story pace will pick up at some point or the intention is to conclude the story with Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3.
The first cour of season 1 has modified 20 chapters, while the second cour has modified 16 chapters with 12 episodes. Likewise, Season 2’s Clash of the Titans storyline was a 16 chapter to 12 episode ratio.
The third season picked up the pace by adapting the 40 chapters of two storylines with 22 episodes. Part 2 of the third season adapted the ending of Chapter 90 from Part 22.
The first 8 episodes of Season 4, Part 1 contain about 15 chapters, while the next 8 episodes contain only 11 additional chapters. With 26 custom chapters, 23 chapters remain before the manga ends in Attack On Titan Chapter 139.
Ending Part 1 with Chapter 116 was a good stopover as it resolved short-term conflicts, provided a powerful moment for character development, and left anime fans hanging just before the Marley invasion started.
Part 2 (Attack On Titan, Episode 76) picked up the story again in Volume 29: Chapter 117 – Judgment. In the anime episode, scenes from previous chapters, 114: Support and 115: Above and Below, were also modified, as this marked the beginning of a new course.
Attack On Titan Episode 77 is officially named after Chapter 118: Sneak Attack, Attack On Titan Episode 78 after Chapter 119: Two Brothers, Attack on Titan Episode 79 after Chapter 121: Memories of the Future, Attack On Titan Episode 80 after Chapter 122: Yours, 2000 Years Ago, and Attack On Titan, Episode 81 after Chapter 124: Thaw.
The release date of Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 7 is on February 21, 2022. What is interesting is that the story summary of Attack On Titan Episode 82 is about the awakening of Annie, but the title of the episode is based on Chapter 125: Sunset.
So it’s possible that the flashback arc of chapter 123: Island Devils will be temporarily skipped and moved by the adaptation, so that the chapter’s story acts as a climax right before the finale.
Based on that pace of adaptation and including the rearranged content, there are 13 chapters left for four episodes. Again, it’s very likely that the pace of adaptation will pick up at certain points in the story, but the question is whether the pace will leave room for Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part 3.
The other possibility, of course, is to end the anime series with a final Attack On Titan movie. But that depends on where AoT S4 Part 2 stops. If, as the rumors suggest, Attack On Titan Episode 87 matches Chapter 130: The Dawn of Humanity or Chapter 131: The Rumbling, then the remaining 9 or 8 chapters are way too long for a movie, but it would fit perfectly for a movie. short, single-court TV finale.
Anime news leaker SPY claims Attack On Titan Episode 83 will be named after Chapter 126: Pride. Other leakers claim that Attack On Titan will adapt Episode 84 Chapter 127: Night of the End. Then Attack On Titan Episode 85: Traitor will cover chapters 128 and 129, and Attack On Titan Episode 86: Dawn of Humanity will adjust chapters 123 and 130. Then the finale will adapt Attack On Titan Episode 87: The Rumbling Chapter 131.
On the other hand, if episode 87 matches chapter 133: Sinners, then the remaining six chapters would be perfect for a two-hour movie. It’s a good stopping point for a TV series, as in the next manga chapter, the Marley army begins its final battle with the advancing Wall Titans as the Rumbling has caught up with them.
Most anime fans would rather have the final storyline adapted by an anime TV series. But it’s also easy to see why the anime production committee would want an Attack On Titan: The Rumbling movie, given that they hope to match the astonishing financial success of Demon Slayer: Mugen Train and Jujutsu Kaizen 0.
Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3 Release Date Predictions
As of the last update, MAPPA or any other company associated with the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the release date of Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 . Nor has the production of a third part been announced.
Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information. In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when and whether the Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 3 release date will take place in the future.
Studio MAPPA has been given a seat on the anime production committee for the final season of Attack On Titan. A committee is a group of companies that have invested in an anime project that shares both the risk and the rewards.
As such, MAPPA has every interest in making the final season as successful as possible. They should also have more control over how the story ends.
As mentioned before, it is always possible for S4 Part 2 to speed up the adjustment rate and quickly adjust the remaining chapters, making a third part (or movie) unnecessary. But if part 3 is needed, the real problem becomes the availability of Studio MAPPA.
Undoubtedly, Studio MAPPA already has enough projects to its name in 2022. There are Chainsaw Man, Jigokuraku, Dance Dance Danseur, Kakegurui Twin and the movie Yuri on Ice. Considering that Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s box office in Japan broke the records previously set by Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, it’s highly likely that Jujutsu Kaisen’s Season 2 anime will be announced eventually.
Therefore, the release date of Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 is predicted to be in 2023. Stay informed!
