'Attack on Titan' season 2 release date, spoilers: Follow-up installment delayed?


Manga-based series “Attack on Titan” is reportedly facing some hurdles in the middle of producing its second season.

Yibada reported that the series’ sophomore installment, which was supposed to be aired this year, is pushed back to a later date as “Attack on Titan” Japanese director Tetsuro Araki is still waiting for additional plot points before proceeding with production. Since the show relies heavily on its manga variation penned by Hajime Isayama, fans should be a little more patient when it comes to waiting for the second season as the manga still needs two more story arcs. 

Aside from improving the overall story of the second season, the article also revealed that another reason for the setback is because of the negative feedbacks that the two “Attack on Titan” live action films received. With the current negative reception faced by “Attack on Titan,” the producers of the show are trying to make sure that the next installment of the series will be nothing short of outstanding.

In an exclusive interview for the April release of magazine “Bassatsu Shonen” as translated by Fuku Shuu, Araki confirmed that his team is having some difficulties in developing “Attack on Titan 2”

“It’s rare to adapt manga with a storyline that’s this impressive, so I will be extra cautious. Whether it’s season 1 or season 2, I’ll be mentally prepared to face the production challenges,” the director said.

“Attack on Titan” season 2 will continue the story of the 104<sup>th Trainees Squad’s fight against the human devouring monsters dubbed as the Titans. On top of that, the show is also rumored to take on the “Clash of Titans” story line which will also be shedding some light on Eren’s source of titan capabilities, increasing number of humans turning into Titans, the king being evicted from his throne, and un uprising led by Erwin Smith.
