It's almost a year since the last episode of season 2 of "#Attack On Titan" aired and fans can't seem to wait for the next season to premiere. And to create even more hype, "Attack on Titan" releases official artwork for the next season every once in a while.

This time it's a key visual featuring a "ready-to-bite-his-hand" Eren Yeager sitting next to Levi that's making the wait even harder.

Key visual

This key visual is a part of the Animage March 2018 issue and from the looks of it "Attack on Titan" #season 3 will feature more of Human versus Human fights rather than Human versus Titan action. And this isn't the first time that a key visual features a Human versus Human action.

A while back, the official artwork of season 3 featured Levi against a mysterious man. Fans of the "Attack on Titan" manga will recognize that the man on the right is Kenny [Spoiler].

Araki, the director of the series, told fans during an in-studio interview that they had really enjoyed making the anime and felt it turned out well in the end. He said that "Although the anime takes a break here, we’re still working on it. We will put our best efforts into making season 3," after the end of season 2. He also hinted that the person wearing glasses at the end of season 2 will have a major role in season 3 and that some of the main characters may not survive the season 3.

The Uprising arc

"Attack on Titan’s" following arc called the 'Uprising' arc. This arc mostly consists of a political story, very little Titan-on-Titan drama, a conspiracy between the Titans’ true nature, and a coup d’état against the government.

Although Wit Studio (Animation studio behind "Attack on Titan" series and films) has not revealed an official episode count for season three, fans still have hope it may get a long run this time. If the anime really wants to just hit the 'Uprising' arc with its next release, then it will be not easy to stretch the season out for 20+ episodes. Fans probably wouldn't want a politics-centric season to go on that long because "Attack on Titan" is known for its action-packed battles rather than mental fights.

The third season of the show will be handled by 'NHK General TV' which is a mainstream channel in Japan. Fans are still not sure of the fact that whether this change of stations will affect the censorship of the show. Although the channel has not yet given the exact date on which the first episode of season 3 will air, it is set to premiere in July 2018. #The Uprising
