If you’ve been clenching your fists and biting your nails waiting for news on “Attack on Titan Season 5,” brace yourselves. We’ve scoured every corner of the Walls to bring you the tea that you might not want to hear, but must.
The Cliffhanger That Left Us Hanging
Yes, the much-anticipated second half of Season 4 is still in the pipeline, promising a culmination of shocking plot twists and emotionally-charged battles. But here’s the deal—there’s no light at the end of the tunnel pointing to a Season 5.
Studio MAPPA, the wizards behind the animation, had initially planned for the story’s final arc to be one lengthy season. However, the anime connoisseurs took a strategic pause, dividing the finale into multiple ‘Final Chapters.’ Why? So that every frame, every stroke could be a masterpiece in its own right.
Part 3 of Attack on Titan’s final season was one extended episode, which aired in early March of 2023,
but here’s the kicker: the next extended-length episode, titled Part 4, is slated for release later this year. So, put that hope for another season back in your pocket; it looks like the epic story of Eren, Mikasa, and Armin will be concluding with this final chapter.
Ruling Out the Rumors: Why No Season 5?
The answer, my Titan-hunting friends, lies in the original source material. Manga genius Hajime Isayama wrapped up the story in June 2021, effectively putting a period on the tale that had us all contemplating existential dread, morality, and survival.
Because of this, it should have already dispelled rumors of another season wrapping up the series,
notes a credible source.
Given the contours of the remaining manga chapters, one final extended-length episode should adequately cover the controversial ending and its aftermath. It seems the anime is set to wrap with a bang, staying true to its origins while also adding its unique flavor.
Some fans were, let’s say, optimistically cautious. Speculation was rife that MAPPA might opt for a feature-length movie or even delay the series indefinitely. Ah, the theories that circulate faster than Titans advancing on the Walls. But it’s official—no movies, no delay.
This final episode should cover the last few chapters of Attack on Titan manga and the extended ending that Isayama released shortly after the main manga finished.

A Decade of Titans, Tears, and Triumphs
A quick rewind for those who’ve somehow missed this phenomenon. “Attack on Titan” dives into a dystopian world where humanity is caged within enormous walled cities to protect themselves from Titans, the gargantuan humanoid monsters with an insatiable appetite for human flesh. Our three protagonists—Eren Yeager, Mikasa Akerman, and Armin Arlert—embark on a perilous journey to save humanity while grappling with moral quandaries and complex relationships.
The plot has spiraled into unforeseeable directions, going from Titans to political intrigue to global warfare. This isn’t just another anime; it’s a labyrinthine narrative with real-world implications.
The Final Call: When Do We Say Goodbye?
The swan song for “Attack on Titan” is coming.
Part 3 of Attack on Titan’s Final Season was released in March of 2023,
but hang tight, the grand finale is pegged for the Fall of 2023. So yes, either pull out those holiday tissues or save that bottle of champagne because that’s when you’ll be saying your final goodbyes to the series.
The Legacy That Awaits
All eyes are now on Studio MAPPA. Will the ending please the fans? Only time will tell. One thing is sure, though:
The ending of Attack on Titan will be controversial, but it will be more than worth the wait at the end of the day.
So when the final credits roll, and the last Titan falls, remember, it’s not just the end of an anime series—it’s the end of an era. A story that transcended its medium to touch on universal themes of human existence.
Yes, indeed, this is the finale we have all been waiting for. And for those who’ve been holding their breath for “Attack on Titan Season 5,” it’s time to exhale.
