The Attack on Titan franchise just released the final season’s last episode on November 5, 2023. However, fans still can’t accept the franchise’s ending and hope Attack on Titan season 5 will definitely come. On the other hand, the franchise already confirmed its ending by finishing its manga counterpart in April 2021.
Moreover, Hajime Isayama, the creator of the Attack on Titan series, also confirmed that he has no plan for continuing the series. But the only reason behind fans’ hope for Attack on Titan season 5 is the last episode of the final season. Since fans watched that episode, they were expecting a continuation of the series.
If their hunches are true and the officials are really thinking about continuing the franchise, then it is great news for us. As a result, they were eager to know about Attack on Titan season 5, such as its release date and what we would get to see in it. So let’s get straight to this informative news and find out everything related to Attack on Titan’s upcoming season.
Is Attack on Titan Season 5 confirmed?
Unfortunately, Hajime Isayama and MAPPA Studio have not yet confirmed Attack on Titan Season 5, nor are they planning for it. As per the facts, the Attack on Titan 4th season was released as the final season, so it’s very obvious that the 5th season is possibly not coming. Moreover, its manga counterpart was also finished two years ago and does not leave anything left to be adapted by a TV series.
However, it does not mean that Attack on Titan season 5 is not possible. As you already noticed in the anime industry, some anime series make their return because of fans’ demand even though their original parts are finished. For example, Fairy Tail and Soul Eater got great responses from fans, but their original parts were reaching their end.
However, they make their return by releasing separate spin-off series such as “Soul Eater Not” and “Fairy Tail Zero,” which are set in the same world but follow a different story. Now, Dr. Stone is also doing the same thing by releasing a spin-off series consisting of three chapters. While its original manga part was already finished 18 months ago, in March 2022.
Adding all these points together, we can conclude that Attack on Titan might also do the same thing in the future; either they will release a continuation season or a spin-off series.
Attack on Titan Season 5 Release Date (If It’s Coming)
If the officials decide to continue the series, they will definitely choose a new spin-off series over the continuation season. This is because it is quite difficult to continue the series in the same way that its past seasons did. If they ever fail or miss providing the same thrill and suspense as past seasons, then it will ruin the masterpiece just like Promised Neverland did.
That’s why they can’t take risks and will move for a better option, which is planning for a spin-off series. So, if they start now, it will take them at least 3 years to release enough material to produce a series. Then, it will again take at least one more year to animate it. So basically, Attack on Titan Season 5, or better to say, the Attack on Titan spin-off series, is expected to release sometime between 2027 and 2029.
So stay relaxed for the next 4 years, and till then, enjoy other masterpieces out there, such as Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man.
Is Attack on Titan Season 4 showing any hint for Season 5?
SPOILERS ALERT: This section contains heavy spoilers from the latest episode of Attack on Titan season 4. Proceed with caution to avoid spoilers.
The last episode of Attack on Titan season 4 was released on November 5, 2023, with the title “The Final Chapters”. However, its episode version was released on November 19, 2023, with the title “Toward the Tree on That Hill”. In this last episode, you will experience a lot of heartbreaking moments, including Eren’s death at Mikasa’s hands.
With Eren’s death, Eldians were also released from the titan curse and returned to normal humans. Then the outside world has nothing to do with Eldian and Paradise Island. Now the peace finally reaches Paradise Island, and all the Eldians are living a peaceful life that they have been waiting for a long time.
While the last scene of the episode shows that their peace does not last too long and the world is brought together again, they declare war against Paradise Island. This is the biggest hint at the continuation of the series and shows the possibility of another titan rising from Paradise Island. In the future, we will get to see a new main character who will lead the second generation of Titans to save Paradise Island from the outer world.
