Attack on Titan Season 2: Spoilers, Release Date, Rumors, News, Updates
By Yumi Redfield
There have been rumors claiming that Attack on Titan season 2 will be released in February, but it is already mid-January, and still no confirmation for an Attack on Titan season 2 has been released by Tetsuro Araki, the Attack on Titan director.
The major reason why Attack on Titan season 2 has taken years to release is because of the (very well thought of) agreement between Attack on Titan manga writer Hajime Isayama and the Attack on Titan anime director Tetsuro Araki that the manga should always be 4 arcs ahead of the anime adaptation. This agreement would ensure that the anime would not get ahead of the manga and end up deviating too much from the source material.
Currently, the four story arcs requirement has been met, so it is rumored that Tetsuro Araki is already working on the second season of Attack on Titan. It is still not clear though, if the team would be able to release Attack on Titan season 2 in February.
If it is true that the Attack on Titan season 2 will be as faithful to the manga as possible, there are already a few storylines that fans can expect in the upcoming second season.
**SPOILER ALERT for those who are not following the manga.**
- There are (unsurprisingly) new and returning Titans that will be seen in the upcoming second season. The Colossal Titan and the Armoured Titan will be returning in season 2 and it will be revealed that they are Bertolt Hoover and Reiner Braun.
- Wantingto gain the power of the Coordinate, a power that grants the bearer the ability to control Titans, Captain Levi’s uncle, Kevin Ackerman will try to eat Eren Yeager after they learned that he possesses the Coordinate.
- Eren Yeager will be spared from being Titan food after it is learned that only the members of the Royal family, The Reiss, can use and control the Coordinate.
