Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (, Kimetsu no Yaiba, “Blade of Demon Destruction”) is a Koyoharu Gotouge manga series.
It follows Tanjiro Kamado, a teen who aspires to be a demon slayer after his family is slaughtered and his younger sister, Nezuko, transforms into a demon.
From February 2016 to May 2020, it was serialized in Shueisha’s shnen manga magazine Weekly Shnen Jump, with its chapters collected in 23 tankbon volumes.
Viz Media published it in English, and Shueisha published it on their Manga Plus platform at the same time.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Potential Release Date: When Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Air?
The bad news first. There was a two-and-a-half-year gap between Demon Slayer’s first and second seasons, and we’d expect the same for its third.
While there is no official release date for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village arc, we expect the third season to arrive in the fall of 2023.
In February 2022, however, the official Demon Slayer account tweeted the first teaser image for the third season, confirming it was officially in production.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot: What Will Happen in Demon Slayer Season 3?
Season three’s plot will be centered on the original manga’s ninth arc, the Swordsmith Village arc.
It’s worth noting that the Demon Slayer manga officially ended in 2020, giving anime fans a unique opportunity to learn (roughly) what the future holds for Tanjiro and the gang.
The Swordsmith Village arc immediately follows the end of the Entertainment District arc, which saw Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui defeat the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki.
Fortunately, Tanjiro’s demon-slaying sword was the only permanent casualty of this epic battle.
Tanjiro will travel to the Swordsmith Village in season three to have his blade repaired by Hotaru Haganezuka.
Tanjiro and company will, of course, be attacked by a swarm of demons while there (including an Upper-Rank Six that splits themselves across multiple bodies). Fortunately, Muichiro Tokito, and Mist Hashira, step in to handle the thread.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Cast: Who’s in Demon Slayer Season 3?
Although the third season of Demon Slayer has yet to be announced, we can expect the majority of the cast from the first and second seasons to return. Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, and Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji, who were both first introduced in episode 21 of season one, will be the two major additions.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer: Any Demon Slayer Season 3 Footage Yet?
Crunchyroll and production company Ufotable released the first teaser trailer for season three in April 2022. (sort of).
However, calling it a trailer may be a stretch given that it essentially serves as a recap of the series thus far, taking you through highlights from seasons one and two.
