And of course, the wait for the third season would not be complete without mentioning some those numerous Attack on Titan Season 3 spoilers and speculations. And if these exciting predictions should prove to be correct, fans better brace for a wilder ride next season.
For those who don't want their AoT Season 3 spoiled in the slightest, better leave now. What follows is a brief rundown of what could happen next season, which should be familiar to all manga readers.

Another possibility is that the connection between Levi and Mikasa will finally be explored in AoT Season 3. While the fact that the two are the only characters with Asian ancestry was never really explored in length, manga readers already know that the two came from the Ackerman clan known for being fierce warriors.
Opinion: Did Toonami Air Attack on Titan Too Soon? https://t.co/N3uEmbMmLD pic.twitter.com/9F9yL8ZoxDBut an even greater revelation could happen in the coming season. In the anime series, the characters were led to believe that the only remaining human survivors are those inside the wall and that everyone outside the wall perished. If everything proceeds exactly like in the manga series, that belief will soon be shattered in the coming season.

Meanwhile, the Inquisitr previously reported on the possibility that the upcoming Attack on Titan Season 3 could cover two sagas of the manga series - the Uprising as well as the Return to Shiganshina. With this in mind, the upcoming season will definitely be longer than the 12-episode Season 2. Estimates vary, but the material contained in the two sagas is sufficient for a 25-episode third season.
