Attack on Titan: The Final Season takes a far darker turn for the already-macabre and violent anime series. After discovering that their Titan-infested island home is essentially a prison for Eldians — people with the ability to transform into Titans — Eren and his companions travel across the world to exact revenge against the thriving nations in the outside world. Unfortunately, Eren's rage begins to overtake everything, leading to all-out destruction and genocide.

With both sides finding common ground amidst the end of the world, how and when will the final act unfold?

With so much material left in the manga and only a handful of episodes left in Part 2, it's difficult to say whether or not the story will wrap up in the way we might expect. We could easily be looking at another part to really cap things off. In fact, many fans are predicting the anime could be sent off with a movie to adapt the ending.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season streams with new episodes every Sunday on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
