Season 1 originally aired in 2013 to critical acclaim and rumours of season 2 were continuously shut down by delays. Signs that Attack on Titan would be released in 2017 started to come when production was announced at the Shingeki Matsuri event in July of 2016 and AoT composer Hiroyuki Sawano announced via Twitter that he would be working on the soundtrack in the coming year.
The Bessatsu Shonen article (see below) also confirms that a Blu-ray DVD season 1 box set is being released on March 15, 2017.
In other news, Funimation announced that they had acquired the rights to Attack on Titan season 2. While the article does not state what the company intends to do with the series, it could mean an English dub of Attack on Titan is also on the way.
