We already know the second season of Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin will be making its premiere sometime in April. Now, what we don't know is the content of the upcoming season.

Araki, now the chief director, also served as director for Death Note and last spring's anime hit Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Backing him up is Masashi Koizuka, the director of the series,
