As your favorite Diva was lurking on her Twitter timeline, she saw an interesting tweet from our friends at Crunchyroll…an hour before the simulcast of the Attack on Titan season 2 finale.

This Diva doesn’t speak Japanese (yet) but I can clearly see “Season 3” and “2018” in the same image. Oh really? Is that your story? Are you sticking to it? This Diva is going to remain cautiously optimistic.
But then! BUT GOSH DARN THEN a Diva saw this!

Once again, this Diva does not speak or read Japanese, but my sources indicate that this confirms season three is in production with a 2018 release date. Sorry kids… there is no information on the length of season three yet.
As any fan of the anime based on Hajime Isayama’s manga of the same name knows, release dates mean little. Let’s not forget four years! We had to wait four bloody years for the second season. We endured pushed release dates, two live action movies, a live action drama mini-series and a spin-off anime series. All this happened long before we got season two.
Only time will tell if we will get season three on time. All this Diva knows, is the season two finale left non-manga readers with so many questions. (Man perched on a certain shoulder, this Diva is talking about you.) Manga readers know what lies ahead and we are excited. This Diva personally is demanding more screen time for Levi, Hange and Erwin… maybe even some backstory into the badassery that is the Ackermans. (Non-manga readers can ignore that. If you don’t want to read, then you must want to wait.)
What say you? Do you think we will get season three on time?
