Demon Slayer: will season 2 be shorter than expected?

If you’re an anime fan, you couldn’t miss Demon Slayer. From the broadcast of its first season, this title was a huge success. So it was only natural that he had a sequel.

Ahead of the release of Demon Slayer Season 2, anime fans got to revel in the Mugen Train movie. This feature film was designed to bridge the gap between the first and the second season. Now it’s time to make way for season 2. We know that this sequel will be released on December 5, 2021. It will premiere in Japan via Fui TV.


A few weeks before the release of season 2 of Demon Slayer, information concerning the number of episodes it will include has surfaced on the web.

Ten episodes

The first season of Demon Slayer contained 26 episodes. So fans of the anime expected the same to be true for Season 2. Unfortunately, that won’t be the case. At least, that’s what the sources claim.

According to the Sugoi LITE page, Season 2 will only have 11 episodes in total. This will mark the beginning of the Entertainment District story arc. However, this arc is only expected to start around the last three episodes of the anime. Indeed, the first seven episodes will still deal with the Mugen Train arc.

What to expect from season 2?

The second season of Demon Slayer will pick up the events of Mugen Train. As a reminder, at the end of the first season, Tanjiro, Inosuke and Zenitsu were to leave for their first major Demon Slayer mission.

We know that the Entertainment District narrative arc is the adaptation of about thirty chapters of the manga. This time around, the story will take place in the Yoshiwara neighborhood. This place is also known as “District of pleasures. “ Tanjiro will meet a new ally there. But his path will also cross that of new enemies.

After the release of Mugen Train, fans of the anime are wondering if the second season will also be followed by a feature film. For the moment, difficult to say. In any case, what is certain is that this new season will have many surprises in store for fans of the anime.
