Ok, so Attack on Titan just continues to get bigger. As if animes, comics, video games, and a live-action movie (splitting the story over to films) wasn’t enough, now we’re going to get a live-action TV series that’ll tie into the movies themselves!

The TV show itself will apparently focus on the everyday lives of the Survey Corps, with a particular focus on Hanji. But other members of the Corps from the films, plus some new characters, will also be in the series.

As for who’s making the series, it is an all-star Attack on Titan lineup: Shinji Higuchi, director of the live action films, will return to direct the television show. Hajime Isayama, creator of the manga, will supervise the live action components, with Yuusuke Watanabe penning the scripts.
