Demon Slayer has already been picked up for a third season, so you can rest easy knowing that the story isn’t over yet.
The hugely popular anime series has a lot of fans all over the world. Its first spin-off movie, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, was the highest-grossing Japanese film of all time. These fans are now eagerly waiting to hear when the show will come back.
The second season, which included the Mugen Train and Entertainment District arcs, is over, so now we have to wait for Tanjiro and Nezuko to go on more adventures.
Here’s what you need to know about season 3 of Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Potential Release Date: When Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Air?
The bad news first. Between the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer, there was a two-and-a-half-year gap. We’d expect the same for the third season.
So, the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village arc probably won’t come out until the fall of 2023, even though there isn’t a date set yet.
The good news came in February 2022, when the official Demon Slayer account tweeted the first teaser image for the third season and said it was officially being made.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Cast: Who’s in Demon Slayer Season 3?
Even though the third season of Demon Slayer isn’t coming out for a while, we can probably assume that most of the actors from the first and second seasons will be back. Mist Hashira, played by Muichiro Tokito, and Love Hashira, played by Mitsuri Kanroji, will be the two most important new characters. Both were first seen in episode 21 of season one.
So, here are the Japanese and English names of the people who play the main characters in Demon Slayer:
Tanjiro Kamado – Natsuki Hanae / Zach Aguilar (English)
• Nezuko Kamado – Akari Kitô / Abby Trott (English)
• Inosuke Hashibira – Yoshitsugu Matsuoka / Bryce Papenbrook (English)
• Zenitsu Agatsuma – Hiro Shimono / Aleks Le (English)
• Muzan Kibutsuji – Toshihiko Seki / Greg Chun (English)
• Kagaya Ubuyashiki – Toshiyuki Morikawa / Matthew Mercer (English)
• Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka – Takahiro Sakurai / Johnny Yong Bosch (English)
• Love Hashira, Matsuri Kanroji – Kana Hanazawa / Kira Buckland (English)
• Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito – Kengo Kawanishi / Griffin Burns (English)
• Flower Hashira, Kanae Kocho – Ai Kayano / Bridget Hoffman (English)
• Tsuguko Kanao Tsuyuri – Reina Ueda / Brianna Knickerbocker (English)
Demon Slayer season 3 plot: What will happen in Demon Slayer season 3?
The plot of season three will be based on the ninth arc of the original manga, which is called the “Swordsmith Village” arc.
It’s important to note that the Demon Slayer manga ended in 2020. This gives anime fans a unique chance to find out (roughly) what the future holds for Tanjiro and the rest of the group.
So, beware of spoilers!
The Swordsmith Village arc starts right after the Entertainment District arc, which ended with Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui beating the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki.
The only thing that was lost for good in this epic battle was Tanjiro’s sword that could kill demons.
In the third season of Demon Slayer, Tanjiro will go to the Swordsmith Village to have Hotaru Haganezuka fix his sword.
There, Tanjiro and his friends will have to deal with a lot of demons (including an Upper-Rank Six that splits themselves across multiple bodies). Mist Hashira’s friend Muichiro Tokito steps in to take care of the thread, which is lucky.
Demon Slayer season 3 trailer: Any Demon Slayer season 3 footage yet?
In April 2022, Crunchyroll and the production company Ufotable put out the first trailer for the third season (sort of).
It’s hard to say it’s a trailer, though, because it’s mostly just a recap of the show so far, showing you the best parts of seasons one and two.
The most interesting thing is that some key (old) footage of the Mist and Love Hashiras, who will be important in the third season, is included.
If we assume that the third season of Demon Slayer will start in late 2023, we can expect to see a full trailer in June 2023. This is based on what happened in the previous two seasons. Keep an eye on this.
Is The Demon Slayer Manga Finished?
Demon Slayer manga series ended in 2020. With volume 23, the manga was over. The last book was written by Koyoharu Gotouge and came out in Japan on December 4, 2020.
In the future, there will be more short stories, spin-offs, and light novels in this series, but don’t look for a Demon Slayer Manga Volume 24 Release Date.
