In May 2022, the second season of the enormously popular anime franchise ended following a fantastic finale featuring some of Demon Slayer’s most breathtaking action sequences to date.
Due to the enormous success of the spinoff/sequel film Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, Demon Slayer also had a banner year.
With its debut in 2020, Mugen Train became the all-time highest-grossing Japanese film thanks to its success at the global box office.
What does Tanjiro’s future hold now that the chaos in the entertainment area has subsided? Here is everything we currently know about season three of Demon Slayer.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date Confirmed
The release date for Demon Slayer Season 3 has been confirmed. This spring marks the release of the eagerly awaited third season of the “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” franchise.
The premiere will coincide with the debut of several new anime programs. Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc’s global release date was previously decided to be April.
April 9 will mark the launch of Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc. The third season of Demon Slayer will center on the Swordsmith Village arc and Tanjiro Kamado’s subsequent brutal battles.
Moreover, Mitsuri Kanroji, Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, and Love Hashira will all be present. “Kizuna no Kiseki” is the name of the third season’s opening theme of Demon Slayer.
According to a source, Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc will be the most popular franchise out of all the animes scheduled for release in the spring of 2023.
These are details on those international screenings.
- UK Cinemas – March 1
- United States and Canada – March 3 in ‘over 1,700 theatres.’
- Paris – February 25
- Berlin – February 26
- Mexico City – March 4
- Seoul – March 11
- Taipei – March 19
Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot
Officially, the Swordsmith Village Arc is the third season of Demon Slayer. We won’t discuss the source material here but be assured that it will likely span chapters 100 to 127 of the manga.
Given that the Entertainment District Arc covered a comparable age range of 70 to 99, this season will probably consist of 12 episodes, give or take a few.
It should involve Tanjiro going to Swordsmith Village to obtain a new sword, barring significant changes. As luck would have it, there is an old weapon in the village.
It’s not simple, though, because the story involves the Love and Mist Hashiras and perhaps one or two Upper-Rank demons.
In a broader sense, the Entertainment District finale also hinted at the likely direction the series will follow after Demon Slayer season 3.
Tengen isn’t on the board anymore, yet he’s still alive. He informed Iguro that Tanjiro should most likely take over for Hashira. The Demon Slayers can finally retaliate against Muzan Kibutsuji, their ultimate goal.
