FUNimation's official Twitter account streamed a trailer for Hellsing Ultimate Volumes IX and X on Wednesday.
Volumes IX and X will ship on DVD and Blu-Ray combo for US$33.74 on October 28. The last two episodes will have both subtitles and an English dub, and will feature trailers, commentary, and interviews.
FUNimation gave a synopsis of the season finale:
Coming this Fall, prepare yourself for the epic conclusion to one of anime's most brutal and action-packed series of all time. All hell has broken loose, as The Major and his Millennium Organization wreck havoc on downtown London. With Alucard and Alexander battling it out to the death, only Seras and Integra can stop this mad man from laying waste to the rest of the world.
The third and final season was animated by the studios Graphinica and Kelmadick, including the final 67-minute volume that debuted in Japan in 2012. Satelight and MADHOUSE had previously animated Hellsing Ultimate, and GONZO animated the 2001-2002 Hellsing television anime series. Funimation already licensed Volume VIII, the first volume in the anime's final arc.
Funimation Entertainment announced in 2010 that it would be distributing Hellsing Ultimate instead of Geneon Entertainment (USA) Inc. Funimation released the first eight volumes of Hellsing Ultimate in two sets of four. Both shipped in October 2012. Funimation is currently streaming them online.
