To the shock of many, It is confirmed that Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3 will be split into two parts, and the first half is scheduled to be released on March 3, and the other part will air sometime this year as well.
The official announcement for the split cour was released on the Attack on Titan website and was later posted on the official Twitter account via @anime_shingeki as well. Attack on Titan Final Season production committee also apologized for the delay.

However, there have been rumors that the first cour of Part 3 is likely to be a special episode much longer than the regular 20 minutes.

After the successful attack on Marleyan Island, and almost reaching back home unscathed Levi and Hange decide to keep a distance between the two brothers, and the best way to do that was keeping Zeke in the eyes of Levi and trapping Eren in an underground Cell.
