The first season of Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – was amazing. For many, it is considered the best anime of the year 2019. Its popularity is beyond doubt on the arrival of a second season of Kimetsu no Yaiba. However, it regularly happens that a large number of anime only benefit from one season, while their success is huuuge 😏. We know that the studio, Ufotable, has taken over other animes for the next few seasons. It is therefore not to be excluded. Let’s take look at all the information we have about the possible Demon Slayer Season 2.
This article will be regularly updated as new information becomes available.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Release date
Demon Slayer was produced by Studio Ufotable and is based on a Japanese manga series by Koyoharu Gotooge. According to the latest rumors, Demon Slayer Season 2 is planned. However, we will have to be patient. It may take several years… As of yet, there is no official announcement regarding the second season of the show.
The story of the anime follows Tanjiro Kamado, a normal boy who lives with his family and makes a living by selling charcoal. Sadly, one day his family is attacked by demons and only Nezuko is still alive. But she turned into a demon. Then Tanjiro finds himself in a strange situation wich makes him start a mission to save his sister and eliminate all the demons.
Kimetsu no Yaiba began airing on April 6, 2019, on Tokyo MX. The anime subsequently aired on GTV, GYT, BS11, and other Japanese TV channels. All over the world, Demon Slayer has enjoyed resounding success and received awards.
The content is not lacking. Three volumes of the Manga were not picked up in season 1 of the anime, and Koyoharu Gotooge released 19. In May 2019, the manga’s sales reached over six million, which is a staggering amount. The only major issue that can cause the show to be canceled is the studio’s busy schedule. Ufotable is a small studio, it might not be able to produce the second season of Demon Slayer at the same time as the other projects. Usually, the studio makes one big project per year, producing a movie.
The next movie, titled “Demon Slayer: Infinity Train Arc” is due out on October 16, 2020. Based on the latest rumors, it appears that Demon Slayer Season 2 is due out in October 2020. However, due to the pandemic coronavirus that has impacted the industry and the whole world, plans have been changed. If we had to issue dates, here are the two main predictions that stand out: January 2021 if we are extremely optimistic, April 2021 if we are more reasonable. Anyway, we will have to wait many more months before seeing the new adventures of Kimetsu no Yaiba. 😥
Demon Slayer Season 2 What to expect?
Season 2 will cover the events of the manga that take place after those used for the movie. Thus, the chronological order will be season 1, the movie, and then season 2. Like the previous season, this one will focus on Tanjiro. It is likely that he will seek to find the strongest demon. Will his sister become human again? Will he discover details of his past? Will he be able to meet the challenges he will encounter throughout his quest? These are the questions we hope Season 2 provides us with answers to.
Demon Slayer: The movie
Demon Slayer will soon debut in Japanese theaters. This is a very recent studio project, which therefore occupied the staff for many months. On the occasion of the movie’s release, we expect that new information about Season 2 will be leaked. This movie will focus on Rengoku, which is getting a lot of excitement among fans! Here’s the synopsis:
Tanjiro Kamado, joined with Inosuke Hashibira, a boy raised by boars who wears a boar’s head, and Zenitsu Agatsuma, a scared boy who reveals his true power when he sleeps, board the Infinity Train on a new mission with the Fire Pillar, Kyojuro Rengoku, to defeat a demon who has been tormenting the people and killing the demon slayers who oppose it!
As the first trailer appeared a few months ago, the Japanese internet streaming platform AbemaTV hosted yet another special event on August 2 by announcing more information on the highly anticipated movie Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba): Mugen Train, an animated film. We find the new trailer with the theme song “Homura” by LiSA, and a new visual with Enmu.

Where to watch Demon Slayer Season 2?
Of course, it is currently not possible to watch Demon Slayer Season 2. That said, we already know where it will be streamed. The franchise is indeed an exclusivity of the Crunchyroll site, which will of course renew its rights for the broadcasting of the second season. To summarize, you can find Demon Slayer Season 2 on Crunchyroll as soon as it is released. 😁👍
