The popular Attack on Titan anime had its second season announced this past Summer, and earlier this month had that start month revealed to be in April 2017 in Japan. At the time of the reveal, we did not know if the show would be coming to the West, but just a day later Funimationconfirmed that they acquired the rights for the US and Canada, and that it would also be premiering in April 2017. For the first season, the show ran on the streaming service Crunchyroll and on Funimation's site, and eventually made its way to television on Cartoon Network via Adult Swim's Toonami block. Whether it will show on Crunchyroll or Toonami is unknown, but it should be showing on FunimationNow when it debuts.
Attack on Titan, which features a young industrial society's struggle against the people-eating giant Titans, ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger with a Titan breaking through another layer of the people's security. Season two looks to continue the story, and adding a new type of creature -- a Beast Titan. Is he friend or foe? Hopefully some of the mysteries behind these Titans also get resolved.
Here's a trailer promotional video (with English subtitles) for Attack on Titan season two:
A new episode of Attack on Titan hasn't been seen since Fall 2013. Watch out for the Titans, refreshed for a second season, to invade the US some time in April 2017!
