Attack on Titan season 1 ended way back in September 2013, and since then, fans of the critically acclaimed series have been eagerly waiting for the next season to arrive. Before December 2016, fans didn’t know exactly when the next season of their favorite series will arrive. In fact, they didn’t even know whether there will be another season or not. The silence of the creator and the studio led to them believing that the series has been cancelled. However, on December 6, 2016, the studio behind the series officially confirmed Attack on Titan season 2 to arrive in April 2017.
The official announcement of Attack on Titan season 2 did set the hype going for it, but at the same time, it gave birth to a lot of rumors regarding what will happen in the next season. Recently, it was reported that the episodes featured in Attack on Titans season 2 will focus on some new members of the Survey Corps.
