Attack on Titan Season 3: Release Date Anticipated for Attack on Titan Episode 88!
Nothing is happening in Attack on Titan right now. The Final Season—specifically, the third installment of the Final Season—will return in 2023, but we’ve only seen a poster and a teaser trailer.
We’ve spent some time searching high and low for every scrap and morsel of information about the upcoming season as the popular anime slowly approaches its conclusion.
Continue reading for the most recent rumors about the release date of Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3, how many episodes remain to air, and how the series’ penultimate episode, episode 87, is set up.
You’ll need something to fill the Titan-shaped hole in your heart, so immerse yourself in more of the greatest anime ever produced.
When Will the Third and Final Episode of Attack on Titan Air?
According to recent reports, the third and final part of Attack on Titan’s last season will premiere in 2023. This information was made public on the program’s official Twitter account (which opens in a new tab), along with a teaser trailer for the third episode of the fourth season (which you can watch below). Beyond that, we do not have very much information.
A definite release date indicates that it will not be pushed back, which is good news, considering how busy things are getting at the MAPPA animation studio.
Release Date Anticipated for Attack on Titan Episode 88
Attack on Titan has had several release dates over its decade on screens. Since 2013, new seasons have begun to air during the traditional anime seasons of Spring, Fall, and Winter.
There is every reason to believe that Attack on Titan episode 88 will air in late winter/early spring 2022-2023, possibly in January or February 2023. Why? The first two episodes of the Final Season debuted in December 2020 and January 2022, respectively.
The pattern has been established, so assuming no production delays, there should be enough time to deliver again at the same time next year. Part 3 should be shorter than the first two, as we’ll see soon, which should help with production.
What is the Remaining Season of Attack on Titan?
Although we cannot say for sure, Part 3 may be relatively brief. This is because its supply of source material is rapidly diminishing. To put things into perspective, the first season of Attack on Titan Final Season/season four covered the 91st to the 116th chapters of the manga, and it required 16 episodes to do so.
Final Season Part 2 included 12 episodes and covered chapters 117–130 of the book.
Based on the current proportion of manga chapters to episodes, the adaptation of the third and final part of Attack on Titan’s last season will only require nine additional manga chapters. That number could go up to about 12 or 13, depending on the strategy that MAPPA employs for the (likely) action-packed scenes in the future.
Trailer for Episode 33 of Attack on Titan
The Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3 trailer is more of a “teaser,” revealing very little, as expected at this early stage. The original poster is also included.
Mikasa, Armin, Jean, Hange, Gabi, Falco, Annie, Pieck, Connie, Levi, and Reiner, Eren’s adversaries, are seen following in the footsteps of one of the Colossal Titans in the 15-second trailer.
It’s worth noting that Levi is wearing ODM gear here and being a fairly obvious metaphor for following (quite literally) in Eren’s footsteps as they pursue the former Scout. Despite suffering terrible wounds earlier in the Final Season, he appears to recover and be ready to battle in Part 3.

What to Expect in Part 3 of the Attack on Titan Final Season Story
Don’t worry. We’re not going to reveal any manga spoilers. First and foremost, it is clear that the long-running conflict between Marley and the island of Paradis is drawing to a close. The main unanswered question is how everything will play out in Part 3.
As part of Eren’s world-ending Rumbling, the Titans engulfed in Paradis’ wars are used as a massive army. Eren is on a mission to kill everyone outside of Paradis so that his friends can live free of the cycle of vengeance that, in his opinion, is perpetually returning to the “devils” of Paradis.
Eren’s path is being obstructed by the alliance of Paradis and Marley’s forces. They are comprised of Eren’s’sister Mikasa, his former Survey Corps colleagues, and the rest of Marley’s formidable powers.
There are a few wildcards to deal with before the grand finale. Floch is one of those in command. He’ll play an essential role in the show’s conclusion. The loyal Eren lieutenant was last seen being shot by Gabi, but his fall into the water did not appear to be particularly fatal.
Zeke is most likely still playing chess. Zeke is the only person who knows how to escape a time paradox; he is trapped in the Coordinate due to Eren’s actions in Part 2.
There are also Jaegerists – those who support Eren – whose allegiances may be shaken by Eren’s ongoing rampage around the world. The outcome of the conflict may be determined by whether they support Eren or oppose him.
Overall, Eren and Mikasa will face a decisive battle for the planet’s future. Whether she can persuade him to abandon his warpath could mean the difference between life and death.
