Demon Slayer season 2 on Netflix: not before 2024?
While the spotlight is on the last episodes of Attack on Titan (which may not be the last) currently airing on Crunchyroll, another anime still took center stage at the start of the year: c t is Demon Slayer Season 2, spanning the Pleasure Quarter arc, which occupied screens between early December and mid-February. A season 2 reserved for SVOD platforms Crunchyroll and Wakanim before the absorption of the second by the first. But what about Netflix? Can we expect to see the continuation of the adventures of Tanjirô and Nezuko on it soon?
To try to answer this question, since there is no official information on this subject, it suffices to take the delays observed between the broadcast on Crunchyroll and on Netflix of the first season of Demon Slayer. The first 26 episodes were broadcast between April and September 2019… and we had to wait until November 01, 2021 to see them land in the Netflix catalog and that of Amazon Prime. So more than two and a half years have passed. If a similar delay is expected, then we should not expect to see season 2 of Demon Slayer before July 2024 in France.
The Infinity Train still missing
If that seems far away, we can always hope for the soon announcement of the arrival of Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train on Netflix which has still not been dated or even formalized. The animated film is the sequel to Season 1 and must-watch for anyone wishing to see Season 2, which focuses on The Pleasure District. However, one question remains unanswered: in what format will it be presented on the platform? Appeared for the first time in the cinema in the form of a film, Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train got a version final cut : it was divided into seven episodes, which aired between October and December on Crunchyroll and Wakanim.
In any case, no official information has been communicated and the dates mentioned above are purely speculative. Furthermore, it must be recognized that the simulcast landscape is about to open a new chapter: last week, Crunchyroll formalized the absorption of Wakanim and is now THE platform specializing in Japanese anime SVOD. Therefore, exclusivity contracts may change. Response in the coming weeks. Finally, it is worth remembering that season 2 of Demon Slayer ended its broadcast in mid-February. In the wake of the last episode, ufotable (the animation studio) announced that the sequel would also be covered by the anime: season 3 will therefore cover the narrative arc of the Blacksmiths’ Village at a date still unknown today.
