The official website has yet to release a synopsis for Attack on Titan season 4, part 2, episode 3. However, reports online have given fans a first glimpse at the episode, entitled Two Brothers, which is set to land on Crunchyroll and Funimation very soon. Given the title, it’s likely we can expect the next episode to delve further into the relationship between Eren and Zeke Yeager.

The wait for Attack on Titan’s final season might finally be over, but the arrival is bittersweet for fans of the anime, who will be sad that the show has entered its endgame. That said, we don't doubt the season will go out with a bang.

So, without further ado, read on for everything you need to know about how to catch up Eren Yaeger, Mikasa Ackerman and co. in Attack on Titan season 4, part 2 – and how to watch the episodes on Funimation, Crunchyroll and Hulu.

Part two of Attack on Titan's final season began on US streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation on Sunday 9th January 2022 and is airing weekly.

Episode 3 is set to air on Sunday 23rd January 2022. The new episodes are also available to watch on Hulu.

The show's release date was announced in October 2021 as part of a (brief) teaser trailer, ahead of six special recap episodes which aired in Japan on 25th October.

An earlier teaser trailer for part two previously confirmed the anime would return "this winter" with episode 76 – and we learned that the opening episode would be called Danzai (which can be translated to Sentencing or Judgement).

Part 1 of season 4 began on 6th December 2020, and wrapped up on 29th March 2021.

For those watching with Japanese audio, Yuki Kaji will of course be returning to finish Eren Jaeger's journey. He will be joined by Yui Ishikawa as Mikasa Ackerman, Marina Inoue as Armin Arlert, Yoshimasa Hosoya as Reiner Bruan, and Takehito Koyasu as Zeke Jaeger. 

For those watching the English dub, Bryce Papenbrook will be voicing Eren Jaeger one last time. Trina Nishimura will continue to voice Mikasa Ackerman, with Josh Grelle as Armin Arlert, Robert McCollum as Reiner Braum and Jason Liebrecht as Zeke Jaeger.

When is the last episode of Attack on Titan?

The last episode of part one was called Above and Below, and aired on 29th March 2021.

The air date for the last ever episode and series finale of Attack on Titan will depend on the episode count of part 2 - but fans likely have to wait until around April 2022 to find out how the groundbreaking anime ends.

Attack on Titan season 4 trailer

Following the conclusion of part 1, a very short but sweet teaser for the next episode was released - and the emotional piano music suggests that it's going to be a sad one.

We got another 30-second trailer in October 2021 - again we only saw a few brief clips that did not give much away, but it did tease one last round of epic Titan battles:

A teaser visual was also revealed at MAPPA Stage 2021, along with a tweet revealing the first episode's title and confirming a winter release date:

Who is the main character in Attack on Titan?

Attack on Titan is a curious one - the main character and protagonist of the series is undoubtedly Eren Jeager, a teenager who swears revenge on the Titans after they destroy his hometown and kill his mother. He then joins the military with childhood friends Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert, with the three fighting and studying Titans as part of the Survey Corps.

*Warning: spoilers ahead for Attack on Titan season 4, part 1*

However, despite his heroic origins Eren undergoes an almost reverse character arc, performing more and more violent acts until he becomes more of an anti-hero. By the end of season 4, part 1 he has announced his intention to destroy all nations outside of Paradis, and become the final series antagonist.

With half a season left, only time will tell if Eren can be redeemed...

Attack on Titan episode 73 delay

While part one of season 4 has now finished airing, there was a noticeable delay. Episode 14 of season 4 - the show's 73rd episode overall - was interrupted in Japan on 14th March due to breaking news coverage of a magnitude 4.9 earthquake in the Wakayama prefecture.

As the episode had not finished airing in Japan, episode 73 was delayed for international audiences also. The delayed episode was then aired in a double bill with episode 74 on 21st March 2021 for audiences worldwide.
