The anime also featured a returning cast.

The first television anime season premiered in April 2013, and the second season premiered in April 2017. The first part of the third season premiered in July 2018, and the second half premiered in Japan on the NHK General channel in April 2019.

Hajime Isayama launched the original manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English digitally and in print.

Update: Crunchyroll writes that the anime's official Twitter account confirms "even more episodes," although the original announcement only specified "Episode 76."

Update 2: Crunchyroll has removed the text "even more episodes" from its article, but not from its social media posts.

One part of the anime's official website lists the announcement video as "TV Anime Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2 special video," but not elsewhere on the site or in the video itself.

Lead voice actress Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa) posted (and the official anime account Retweeted) on Twitter that "the TV Anime Attack on Titan The Final Season continues (Episode 76 "Sentencing" ~), slated to air 'this coming winter' on NHK General!"

Update 3: Crunchyroll has updated its article to remove any mention of "Part 2."

The anime's official website updated to list "TV Anime Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2 (Episode 76 "Sentencing" ~)."
