Do you wonder if we’ll get an Attack on Titan season 5 after the fourth season is wrapped up? Is there enough source material available to warrant another season of this hit anime series? This article will answer all your queries about the series’ renewal!
Despite the crazy controversy surrounding Attack on Titan’s fourth season, fans around the world loved how thrilling, entertaining, and unpredictable it all was!
Because of the drama surrounding the series and its production, though, fans are now wondering if another season is going to be released or if another medium will be used to finish off one of the best anime series and one of the top-rated manga series of all time.
Season 4 is finally over, with the final episode releasing on November 5, 2023!
Originally, the story’s final arc was meant to be one long season but was split into multiple “Final Chapters” for the animation quality to stay as high as possible.
This is why fans awaited the episodes, as MAPPA worked tirelessly on the project to keep the quality as high as possible and deliver a finale worthy of an anime like Attack on Titan!
Part 3 of Attack on Titan’s final season was one extended episode, which aired in early March of 2023, and the next extended-length episode, which was titled Part 4, was released in November 2023.
However, with the end finally happening for all Attack on Titan fans, the fan base is looking towards the future for any hints that there might be more stories to tell of this fantastic but tragic world. Is another anime season coming to wrap up Eren, Armin, and Mikasa’s story? Or will something else entirely happen to wrap up this series?
Will There Be an Attack on Titan Season 5?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like MAPPA or any other studio will be creating a fifth season for Attack on Titan anime! There are multiple reasons for this, so let’s get into them.
Season 4 was titled “The Final Season,” and the manga by Hajime Isayama ended in June of 2021. Because of this, it should have already dispelled rumors of another season wrapping up the series.
The Final Episodes perfectly adapted the epic conclusion from the manga chapters to the anime episodes, and there’s no additional content left. The anime concluded exactly like it concluded in the manga, which is how the author wanted to tell the story. So, there is no reason to believe that another season would happen as the finale wrapped up the stories of all the main characters quite nicely.
Fans were originally skeptical of how MAPPA was releasing Attack on Titan’s so-called final season, but it looks like the FINALE has finally happened, and another part was not added to the ending.
Since the original “Final Season” aired, fans wondered how long MAPPA would draw out the series. Some assumed that the ending would be turning into one massive feature-length movie to give Attack on Titan an even larger send-off with some changes from the manga, and others assumed MAPPA would delay Attack on Titan anime for years to come.
However, we didn’t get a feature-length movie, but the final episode was long enough to be called a movie, so there’s that! I wanted the anime to get a theatrical release for the finale, but I guess that was too much to hope for.
This final episode covered the last few chapters of Attack on Titan manga and the extended ending that Isayama released shortly after the main manga finished. Fans assumed that the ending might be changed a bit, but that didn’t happen. The anime’s conclusion was exactly how it happened in the manga.
So, the series has finally ended with another extended-length episode, not another season or a movie created by MAPPA. This also means there won’t be an Attack on Titan season 5 after this!
What is Attack on Titan Anime About?
Attack on Titan is a manga series created by Hajime Isayama that began in 2010 and ended in 2021, and its anime adaptation began airing in 2013. This decade-long series is set in a world where humanity resides in enclosed walls to protect themselves from massive creatures with humanoid features known as Titans.
These Titans are known for devouring humans who get in their way for no reason, which has led humanity to the brink of extinction. The remaining humans live inside these walls, where they live normal lives and train soldiers to defend humankind from these creatures.
Attack on Titan follows Eren Yeager and his best friends, Armin Arlert and Mikasa Akerman. At the story’s beginning, they are normal kids, but their lives change forever when the Colossal Titan breaches the city walls.
Eren and his friends join the military to fight against the looming Titan threat and uncover their world’s secrets. The trio becomes soldiers in the Survey Corps, where they slowly uncover the secrets of the Titans, the walls they live behind, and their history.
Because of Eren’s transformation, they learn that certain humans have the power to turn into Titans and have complete control over their new form. This leads to various internal conflicts, but this revelation makes Eren one of the most powerful weapons the Survey Corps have against the other Titans.
Across the entire series, the narrative deals with moral dilemmas, political espionage, and various complex character relationships. From the political side of the walls to the tender relationship between Eren and his friends. Throughout the story, the main characters deal with personal growth, loss, and various battles against increasingly powerful Titans.
But it’s not just Titans they fight because as the secrets of Titans and the world are revealed, we learn that humanity is not on the verge of extinction. In fact, Eren and all the other characters living inside the walls are basically living in a prison of sorts and are being punished for being ‘Subjects of Ymir.’
When Eren discovers the world’s truth, his goals take a dramatic turn. We see his transformation from a good-natured guy who wants to eradicate Titans to the ruthless individual we see in the final season who’ll go to any lengths to ensure the survival of his people who live on the island and within the walls!
Attack on Titan is a phenomenal show that ran for almost a decade at this point, and the story got its much-awaited send-off, which was pretty intense, fascinating, and totally worthy of an anime of its stature!
In MAPPA, we trust, but did the fans love this ending? We already know the manga community is torn over the series ending, even years after the manga concluded, but what will the anime space think? I can only assume that we’ll be hearing a lot about the Attack on Titan’s ending for a few days or weeks after the epic finale.
The ending of Attack on Titan is controversial for sure, but it was still a great finale, in my opinion. And now that all the stories have been wrapped up, and we even got a glimpse of what happens years after the final battle, there’s no reason to think another season will be coming.
This was indeed the end of this phenomenal anime series, and there won’t be an Attack on Titan season 5 after this!
