Ufotable has officially announced the release date for Demon Slayer season 2, although there is still some uncertainty about when fresh content will stream. ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ is probably one of the most successful and well-liked anime franchises in recent years.
Season 1 not only won ‘Best Anime’ at the 2019 Newtype Anime Awards, but also ‘Anime of the Year’ at the 2020 Crunchyroll Anime Awards. Since then, the sequel film ‘Mugen Train’ has smashed several Box Office records in Japan and even became the highest-grossing film of 2020 globally.
Season 2 of Demon Slayer will begin on October 10th, 2021, by re-adapting the Mugen Train film, before the new content in The Entertainment District Arc is slated to appear on December 5th.
Season 2 of the blockbuster anime will return in 2021, according to the ‘Demon Slayer Matsuri Online -Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival.’ It was subsequently reported that Demon Slayer season 2 will premiere on the programming schedule in the fall and continue throughout the winter. The first seven episodes of Demon Slayer season 2 will be a re-adaptation of the Mugen Train movie, premiering on October 10th.
The first of these seven episodes will feature unique content and will follow Rengoku as he journeys towards the Mugen Train. The final six episodes, however, will be a remake of the 2020 feature picture.
The Entertainment District Arc, or the events that follow Mugen Train, will then premiere with a special one-hour broadcast on December 5th, 2021. Every Sunday at 11:15 p.m., new episodes will show on Fuji TV in Japan, although a worldwide release date has yet to be determined.

Season 2 will begin with the Mugen Train narrative for the first seven episodes, before returning with fresh content on December 5th. Season 2 will adapt the manga series’ ‘Entertainment District Arc,’ which spanned from chapters 70 to 99.
In this arc, Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu join the Sound Hashira (Tengen Uzui) on a mission to Yoshiwara, where there are rumours of demons.
We can certainly guess more of the narrative for season 2 because the anime is a straight translation of the original manga series. However, there is nothing worse than spoilers, so you can read the hit manga series for yourself here.
