Wit Studio, the production company behind the amazing animation of the first two seasons, has returned for the third season. The studio also released a new key visual for the series.

The third season will begin airing from July 22, 2018 on NHK. Unlike season 2 which aired only for 12 episodes, this season will broadcast for a total of 24 episodes. The news was shared by YonkouProductions on Twitter:

The anime 'Attack on Titan' is based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. The manga inspired an anime television adaptation produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G. Here's the plot of the series according to MAL:

Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations.

After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls. Based on Hajime Isayama's award-winning manga, Shingeki no Kyojin follows Eren, along with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and his childhood friend Armin Arlert, as they join the brutal war against the titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.
