Fans of “Demon Slayer” who were concerned that we’d seen the end of “Tanjiro and Nezuko” (and everyone else) may relax now that they know that “season three” of the show will most surely be coming soon. In May of 2022, the enormously successful anime franchise brought to a close its second season with an epic conclusion that featured some of Demon Slayer’s most impressive action scenes yet.
The spinoff/sequel movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train garnered a tremendous amount of success over the past year, which contributed greatly to the overall success of the Demon Slayer franchise. When it was first released in Japan in the year 2020, the film Mugen Train quickly became the most financially successful film in the country’s history, breaking the record for the greatest domestic grossing film ever.
The battle against Muzan Kibutsuji is still going on, but now that the dust has settled in the entertainment district, what does the future have in store for Tanjiro and the Hashira Corps? Here is everything that we know about the third season of Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Cast: Who’s in Demon Slayer Season 3?
As part of the cast for the Swordsmith Village arc, Tanjiro (portrayed by Natsuki Hanae), Zenitsu (portrayed by Hiro Shimono), Inosuke (portrayed by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), and Nezuko (portrayed by Akari Kitou) will all make their comeback. Joining them are two individuals we’ve already glimpsed in the series: the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanoji.
Also expect more of the Hashiras to arrive in future seasons, as well as members of the Twelve Upper Moons/Twelve Kibuki. An official sketch of the evil Doma, one of the Upper Moons, was only recently made available online in anticipation of her potential appearance in the upcoming third season of Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Potential Release Date: When Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Air?
Let’s start with the negative news. It was about two and a half years between the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer, so we anticipate the same amount of time to pass until the show’s third installment. Even while there has not been a date stated for the release of the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village arc just yet, we have a strong suspicion that it will be sometime around the fall of 2023.
The first teaser image for the upcoming third season of Demon Slayer was tweeted out by the official Demon Slayer account in February 2022, along with the announcement that production had begun on the series. This was a welcome piece of information.
Demon Slayer season 3 plot: What will happen in Demon Slayer season 3?
Demon Slayer season 3 is officially the Swordsmith Village Arc. Don’t worry, we won’t get into source material spoilers here, but we believe it will cover chapters 100-127 of the manga. Since the Entertainment District Arc spanned a similar range of episodes, from 70 to 99, it is possible that this season will also consist of 12 episodes, give or take a few episodes.
It is expected that Tanjiro will go to the Swordsmith Village in order to get a new weapon unless there are significant deviations from the plan. It just so happens that the community is the custodian of a historically significant weapon. However, things are not quite as simple as they seem because the Love and Mist Hashiras, along with possibly one or two Upper-Rank demons, are involved in the plot. In a broader sense, the way that the episode of Demon Slayer season 3 ended in Entertainment District gave us a hint about the direction that the show is most likely going to follow after the third season.
Tengen is off the board, but still alive and kicking. He suggested to Iguro that Tanjiro should take over for Hashira as the most likely person to do so. From there, the Demon Slayers can finally strike back at their ultimate target: Muzan Kibutsuji.
Demon Slayer season 3 trailer
The first teaser trailer for the upcoming third season of Crunchyroll’s anime was released in April 2022 by the production studio Ufotable (sort of). To call it a trailer, though, could be a bit of a stretch given that its primary purpose is to act as a rundown of the series up to this point, walking you through the most important moments from the first two seasons.
Demon Slayer Season 3: Where Can I Watch It?
Both subbed and subtitled adaptations of the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer have been made accessible to viewers in other countries through the site. The English dub of the series was made available approximately four weeks following the Japanese broadcast.
The first season of Demon Slayer originally aired in late 2019, while the second season originally aired from October 2021 to April 2022. In addition to being streamable on Netflix in certain countries like Japan, India, Australia, Canada, France, and Brazil, the first season of Demon Slayer is also accessible on Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ Netflix. Have a look at the complete list here.
How Many Episodes Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Have?
The number of episodes that will be included in Demon Slayer Season 3 is still unknown. It is anticipated that the Swordsmith Village Arc will take up approximately 25 chapters from the manga series. If everything goes according to plan for the third season, there will be ten to twelve episodes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Demon Slayer Season 3 Cancelled?

It is generally agreed that Yoriichi is the most powerful Demon Slayer that has ever lived. Because of his incredible strength, the battle doll that was made in his image had to include several arms in order to effectively portray his actions.
Does Tanjiro Become a Hashira in Season 3?
Concerning the Hashira, they were a group that functioned as a component of the Demon Slayer Corps.

As a result, Tanjiro was never given the chance to join the Hashira, despite the fact that he was prepared to do so.
