It was already clear that the Entertainment District Arc did not yet mean the end of the series. But when will Demon Slayer Season 3 be released?

In the second season of Demon Slayer, things really got down to business. In addition to the action-packed finale, fans were also able to look forward to an explosive announcement at the end. The animation studio Ufotable announced that it was already working on season 3 and even published a poster. Meanwhile, there is also a trailer, which we have included below.

When will Demon Slayer Season 3 be released?

It is also clear that familiar faces of production will return. Haruo Sotozaki takes over the direction, while Akira Matsushima again draws the characters. The voice actors known from the first two seasons also slip into their roles again. Only one thing is still uncertain: the start date of season 3.

So far, there is no indication of when the sequel might appear. However, it should not take too long, as it has already been announced. There were about two and a half years between the release of the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer, but there is also a feature film. We therefore believe that the next season will follow by the end of 2023 at the latest.

Demon Slayer: How does the story continue?

As we already know, the anime continues to work on its manga template. So Tanjiro, whose sword was destroyed in the Yoshiwara district, has to travel to Swordsmith Village to have it repaired. Of course, he can’t avoid bloodthirsty demons. The new plot also focuses on two characters we know from the poster, Muichiro Tokito and Mitsuri Kanroji, the fog and love pillar of the Demon Slayer troupe.

Fans can expect a quieter, but no less exciting adventure. If you can’t muster enough patience for the series, you already have the opportunity to find out how it will continue by reading the manga.

Demon Slayer: Action

Ever since the death of his father, the burden of supporting the family has fallen upon Tanjirou Kamado’s shoulders. Though living impoverished on a remote mountain, the Kamado family are able to enjoy a relatively peaceful and happy life. One day, Tanjirou decides to go down to the local village to make a little money selling charcoal. On his way back, night falls, forcing Tanjirou to take shelter in the house of a strange man, who warns him of the existence of flesh-eating demons that lurk in the woods at night.

When he finally arrives back home the next day, he is met with a horrifying sight—his whole family has been slaughtered. Worse still, the sole survivor is his sister Nezuko, who has been turned into a bloodthirsty demon. Consumed by rage and hatred, Tanjirou swears to avenge his family and stay by his only remaining sibling. Alongside the mysterious group calling themselves the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjirou will do whatever it takes to slay the demons and protect the remnants of his beloved sister’s humanity.
