Demon Slayer Season 3 – Trailer, Release Date, Story and First Pictures

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the most popular anime series of recent years, garnering praise from anime aficionados and mainstream critics alike for its spectacular animation, intense fight sequences, and memorable characters.

After the film’s release and the conclusion of the anime’s second season, the series’ popularity shows no signs of slowing down; a third season of the anime is already well into production.

Even though we don’t know the exact premiere date for the third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, we have a pretty good idea of ​​when it will be and some clues that might give us a clue for its launch date.

WILL THERE BE A DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA SEASON 3?

Yes. On February 13, the official Demon Slayer Twitter account tweeted out the first teaser image for the third season and announced that it was already in production.

WHAT WILL BE THE STORY OF SEASON 3?

The third season will adapt the ninth arc from the original manga, titled Swordsmith Village Arc.

The original manga arc follows Tanjiro as he travels to a blacksmith village to repair his Nichirin sword after his climactic battle with the Upper Rank Six demons Daki and Gyutaro at the end of the Entertainment District arc. The season will feature the appearance of Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, who were introduced in episode 21 of the first season.

WHO WILL PRODUCE SEASON 3?

Demon Slayer

Haruo Sotozaki, who directed the first and second seasons of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba as well as the feature film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, is set to return to direct the third season of the eponymous manga. Character designer and chief animation director Akira Matsushima is also set to return. Anime studio Ufotable will once again handle production duties for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc.

THERE IS A SHORT TRAILER COVERING THE SERIES SO FAR

In April 2022, Crunchyroll and Ufotable released the anime’s first trailer. While most of the trailer is a recap of the series’ previous arcs, complete with old footage, it features a few choice shots of Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito, Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanroji, and Tanjiro wielding what looks like to be a Reforged Nichirin Sword.

WHEN WILL DEMON SLAYER SEASON 3 BE RELEASED?

There’s no announced release date yet for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc, though an optimistic estimate would put the third season’s possible premiere around fall 2023.

WILL SEASON 3 AIR ON CRUNCHYROLL OR NETFLIX?

It is currently unknown which platform will get the streaming rights for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc. Previous seasons of the series premiered on Crunchyroll and Funimation, while the first season of Demon Slayer was added to Netflix shortly before the premiere of season 2. With Funimation merging under the Crunchyroll brand following the acquisition of the latter by Sony last year, the possibility of Season 3 being on Crunchyroll is a growing probability. However, we probably won’t get an answer to that question for a while, and we probably won’t get more information about it until the release date is announced.
