Tetsuro Araki (Death Note, High School of the Dead), who directed the show’s first season, serves as Chief Director on the project while Masashi Koizuka took the director’s chair at Wit Studio. Kyoji Asano (Psycho-Pass) returned as character designer, while Yasuko Kobayashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Shakugan no Shana) reprised her duty in series composition. Hiroyuki Sawano is scoring the show’s soundtrack.
Funimation describes the new season as:
Eren Jaeger swore to wipe out every last Titan, but in a battle for his life he wound up becoming the thing he hates most. With his new powers, he fights for humanity’s freedom facing the monsters that threaten his home. After a bittersweet victory against the Female Titan, Eren finds no time to rest—a horde of Titans is approaching Wall Rose and the battle for humanity continues!
Attack on Titan is based on Hajime Isayama’s manga series of the same name. The show’s first season aired in the spring 2013 anime season, and spanned 25 episodes. Five OVAs, spinoff anime series Attack on Titan Junior High, two live-action films, and nine video games were produced following the show’s run.
