Season 3 of Demon Slayer has been confirmed, following the conclusion of Season 2’s Entertainment District Arc, and will be titled the Swordsmith Village Arc, as readers of Koyoharu Gotouge’s best-selling manga series expect.
While Ufotable, the series’ animation studio, hasn’t given many specifics about Season 3 because it’s very early in development, we can already glean a lot of information from the source material. Don’t worry, there will be no significant spoilers in this guide.
The Swordsmith Village Arc will be an anime series, with no intentions for a film version, unlike the Mugen Train Arc. Ufotable, on the other hand, has other ideas. If you’re excited to learn more about Demon Slayer Season 3, here’s everything we know so far, including a release date guess, the first teaser including key art, new characters, and story details.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date: When is the Swordsmith Village Arc expected to air?
Ufotable, on the other hand, is usually consistent in its work product. The first season of Demon Slayer premiered in Fall 2019, with the Mugen Train feature film hitting Japanese theatres in Fall 2020; the show’s Mugen Train Arc premiered in Fall 2021, and the Entertainment District Arc premiered in December 2021, meaning Season 3 should arrive in less than two years.
Epicstream will provide you with the most up-to-current release date information as soon as it is available.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Story: What is the Swordsmith Village Arc about?
Demon Slayer Season 3 will adapt the Swordsmith Village Arc of Koyoharu Gotouge’s popular Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga series, without giving too much away. It’s anticipated to include chapters 100-127 of the manga, which is roughly equivalent to Entertainment District Arc (70-99). The 100th chapter, however, is only halfway through the plot, so expect the fourth season.
Tanjiro is anticipated to visit the Swordsmith Village to obtain a new weapon in the Swordsmith Village Arc. The hamlet is well-known for housing an old weapon, but things get more tricky from there.
The conclusion of the Entertainment District arc hints at where the show will most likely go after Season 3 of Demon Slayer. Tengen is no longer a part of the story, but he is still alive. Tengen convinced Iguro that Tanjiro would be a good Hashira replacement. Tanjiro and the other Demon Slayers will then be able to go after their ultimate goal: Muzan Kibutsuji, the Demon King.
Demon Slayer Season 3: Who are the new characters & demos in the Swordsmith Village Arc?
Of course, Natsuki Hanae’s Tanjiro, Akari Kitou’s Nezuko, Hiro Shimono’s Zenitsu, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka’s Inosuke will return as part of the Swordsmith Village Arc cast.
Haruo Satozaki will direct Demon Slayer Season 3, while Akira Matsushima will be in charge of character design.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode Count: How many episodes will it have?
The Swordsmith Village Arc is anticipated to span approximately 25 chapters in the manga series. If everything goes according to plan, the third season will have 10 to 12 episodes. Ufotable, on the other hand, hasn’t made any announcements regarding this as of this writing.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Trailer: Did Ufotable already release a teaser?
The first teaser for Demon Slayer Season 3 only shows a few essential pieces of artwork for the Swordsmith Village arc. The first teaser may be seen above. Around Summer 2022, the anime’s first complete trailer is expected.
