It's also possible that they end the final season on a cliff hanger, possibly on a turning point in the story.  And then once the manga gets completed, release the story as an OAV.  I find this route better as it gives respect to the source material.  Similar to how they treated the animation for the first series of Hunter X Hunter, once the anime caught up with the manga, they ended the series and released the subsequent arcs in a form of OAV.

Judging as how popular Attack on Titan is (even my daughter is following it), there will definitely be a lot of strong reaction when the season ends.

Considering this is the final season, I find it hard to relate as to how they will finish this in relation to the source material.  From where the anime is right now, there are a lot more things that happens before we get to what is currently happening in the manga.  With the number of episodes remaining, I wonder how they will compress everything.  Perhaps tweak the ending in line with how the author envisions it? 

I found the 3rd season pretty disappointing. I think they could have minimized the dramatic politics and focused more on the violence because that was the anime's strength or add in some filler where it shows them fighting another titan of some sort. They do it all of the time in other anime series to keep the audience interested. I can see now and why some productions deviate from the original plotline of the source material.

For cases where the Anime neared a certain point in the manga, I'm just glad that they don't put fillers here.  I was heavily turned away by what they did with the Naruto and Bleach anime.   Most of the anime that I watched that have surpassed the source material and deviates have been very disappointing.  Which is why I'm very skeptical as to how they will end this.  I can say that we all agree that there are no longer fillers similar to what they did with Dragon Ball Z.

With the source material ending next month, they wont deviate too far. it will end faithfully to the manga and the creators wishes it seems. Its been a good adaptation so far and I feel happy I've got to see an end to something I like so much, which isn't often the case.

So, my hunch was right!  They won't be able to finish the story with this season alone, and they have announced a part 2 to season 4.  At least that's good news.  They don't have to butcher the source material to finish the series.

True that. It has been a fun ride. I really liked the first 2 seasons and then it seems with the 3rd season, all the action slowed down. But like you said, it's stayed true to the manga for the most part. I  recently ended up ordering all 3 seasons on Amazon. I have no clue why they cut the 3rd season into 2 parts. I'm hoping when the release the final season, it won't come out in parts.
