Fans of “Demon Slayer” who feared the end of Tanjiro and Nezuko (and everyone else) may relax, a third season is on the way. In May of 2022, the second season of the massively popular anime franchise came to a close with a spectacular conclusion that featured some of Demon Slayer’s most breathtaking action scenes to date.
The spinoff/sequel film Demon Slayer: Mugen Train had a hugely successful year, helping Demon Slayer to have a banner year overall. When it was released in 2020, Mugen Train quickly became the highest-grossing Japanese film of all time, breaking records all around the world.
What will happen next in Tanjiro and the Hashira Corps’ battle against Muzan Kibutsuji now that the dust has cleared in the entertainment district? Everything we know about the third season of “Demon Slayer” is below.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Potential Release Date
The negative news comes first. We anticipate a similar time lapse between seasons three and four of Demon Slayer, as there was between seasons one and two and a half and two and a half years.
Since no release date for the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village arc has been revealed as of yet, we can only speculate that it will premiere somewhere in the fall of 2023. The official Demon Slayer account tweeted the first teaser image for the upcoming third season in February 2022, so that was fantastic news.
SiliconEra reports that new details will be revealed on December 10 following the Japanese television premiere of the Mugen Train adaptation of the Demon Slayer manga. Check back later for the big reveal when we’ve updated this page with all the latest information.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Cast
Although the third season of Demon Slayer has not been announced as of yet, we can assume that the majority of the actors from the first two seasons will return.
Both Muichiro Tokito (who plays Mist Hashira) and Mitsuri Kanroji (who plays Love Hashira) will be returning for their second appearances since they were introduced in the first season’s twenty-first episode. Therefore, I present to you the Japanese and English voice performers for all of the major 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)
Director Haruo Sotozaki, character designer Akira Matsushima, and the head of the original plot Koyoharu Gotoge will all be returning.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot
The ninth arc of the original manga, titled “Swordsmith Village,” will serve as the inspiration for season three’s story. Note that the manga adaptation of Demon Slayer ended in 2020, giving viewers a rare opportunity to learn (approximately) what lies in store for Tanjiro and company in the years to come.
The events of the Entertainment District arc, which concluded with Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui’s victory over the demon twins Gyutaro and Daki, are immediately followed by the events of the Swordsmith Village arc.
Lucky for Tanjiro, his demon-slaying sword was the only permanent fatality in this epic combat. In the upcoming third season of Demon Slayer, Tanjiro will visit the Swordsmith Village to have Hotaru Haganezuka fix his sword.
Tanjiro and company will undoubtedly face an army of demons during their stay (including an Upper-Rank Six that splits themselves across multiple bodies). Lucky for us, Muichiro Tokito, aka Mist Hashira, steps in to deal with the situation.
The reason why Satoshi Hino (RengokuDemon )’s Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was so popular around the world (via AnimeNewsNetwork). I’m thrilled to find out that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and other Japanese animation works have found fans all around the world.
Some themes in this anime that everyone can connect to our family care, the value of life, and living life to the fullest. To think that all of humanity has united in this way and found common ground fills me with gratitude. Season three will continue to expand on these significant ideas if it hopes to continue the show’s success.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer
The teaser for Season 3 was released in April 2022 by Crunchyroll and production company Ufotable (sort of). To call it a trailer, though, could be a bit of a stretch, as it essentially serves as a recap of the series so far, walking you through highlights from Seasons 1 and 2.
The most remarkable aspect is the use of an important (old) video featuring the Mist and Love Hashiras, who will play crucial roles in the upcoming third season. If the third season of Demon Slayer is set to air in the latter half of 2023, as with the previous two, a complete trailer would likely be released in June of that year, as was the case with the two previous seasons. Keep your eyes peeled.
Demon Slayer Season 3: Where Can I Watch it?
Ufotable and Crunchyroll announced earlier in 2022 that the third season of Demon Slayer would be available to watch on the service upon its premiere. Seasons one and two of Demon Slayer were made available to worldwide fans via the service in both subtitled and dubbed formats, with the English dub debuting roughly four weeks following the Japanese broadcast.
The first season of “Demon Slayer” premiered at the end of 2019, while season two ran from “October 2021 to April 2022.” A monthly ‘fan’ membership on Crunchyroll costs £6.50, or $7.99 in the US, while a ‘Mega fan’ membership costs £8.99, or $9.99 in the US.
Japan, India, Australia, Canada, France, and Brazil are among the countries where you may watch the first season of Demon Slayer on Netflix. View the entire catalog here. You can catch Demon Slayer streaming on both Crunchyroll and Netflix.
