'Attack on Titan' Season 4: When and How to Watch Final Season Online

The final season of the Attack on Titan anime is almost here, and fans of Eren, Mikasa and the rest of the Scouts will want to check out how the war against the Titans ends.

Starting Sunday, December 6 Attack on Titan Season 4 will begin streaming on some of the top anime streaming services in the U.S. With the ongoing pandemic affecting production of movies and television, it seemed like the start of the final season of Attack on Titan would be delayed, and in a way it was.

In July, following the finale of Attack on Titan Season 3, a short message appeared that revealed Season 4 will be the series' last and begin in the Fall. With delays caused by COVID-19, and the transition to a brand new animation studio, fans are likely happy that the series' pushback was only until December.

So what can fans expect from the final season of Attack on Titan? Here's the official synopsis: "It's been four years since the Scout Regiment reached the shoreline, and the world looks different now. Things are heating up as the fate of the Scout Regiment — and the people of Paradis — are determined at last. However, Eren is missing. Will he reappear before age-old tensions between Marleyans and Eldians result in the war of all wars?"

If you don't remember the events of the first three seasons, Funimation is offering a chance to catch up with a movie currently streaming on its online service. Attack on Titan ~Chronicle~ is an action-packed recap film that covers everything that's happened so far in Attack on Titan, from the start of Season 1 through the finale of Season 3.
