Season 3 of Demon Slayer is on the way, and while we don’t yet have an official release date, there is plenty of information to look forward to in the next chapter.
Given the two-and-a-half-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, Tanjiro and the company’s next adventure in the Swordsmith Village storyline are still likely a long way off. While we wait, we’ve put together a brief introduction to the third installment, complete with a list of important characters who will undoubtedly appear, a list of manga titles that will be translated, and other interesting facts about the blockbuster anime’s comeback.
So, if you want to catch up on everything we know so far about Demon Slayer season 3, the follow-up to one of the finest anime series in recent years, scroll down…
Release date rumors for Demon Slayer season 3: Swordsmith Village Arc
There’s nothing official yet, but season 3 of Demon Slayer is set to premiere in 2023. We had anticipated that Fall 2022 would be a clear possibility, but in the COVID age, that seems implausible. If that’s the case, a Spring 2023 release (about April 2023) or a Fall 2023 release (September-October 2023) are all possibilities.
Having said that, Ufotable, the series’ animation studio, is typically quite consistent in its production. Demon Slayer premiered in the fall of 2019, while the Mugen Train film will arrive in Japan in the fall of 2020. In Fall 2021, the Mugen Train recap arc for Demon Slayer premiered on television. Demon Slayer’s series of consecutive Fall premieres may come to an end, but if anybody can do the impossible, it’s Ufotable. The latest teaser has some footage, indicating that development is doing well, but there is no release date in sight. We may aspire for Fall 2022, but at this point, 2023 seems considerably more plausible.
What arc is the third season of Demon Slayer adapting?
The Swordsmith Village Arc is officially the third season of Demon Slayer. Don’t worry, we won’t give anything away about the source material, but we believe it will span chapters 100 through 127 of the manga. The Entertainment District Arc spanned a similar period, from 70 to 99, so expect a 12-episode season, give or take a few.
Tanjiro should go to Swordsmith Village to receive a new weapon unless there are any substantial deviations. The community also happens to be home to an old weapon. But the scenario involving the Love and Mist Hashiras, as well as a demon or two, isn’t quite plain.

On a more general topic, the finale of Entertainment District gave us a hint as to where the program would most likely head after Demon Slayer season 3. Tengen is no longer on the board, yet he is still alive and well. He advised Iguro that Tanjiro would be the most likely Hashira successor. The Demon Slayers may then finally strike back at Muzan Kibutsuji, their ultimate objective.
Who are the new characters and monsters in the third season of Demon Slayer?
The Swordsmith Village arc cast will include Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae), Zenitsu (Hiro Shimono), Inosuke (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), and Nezuko (Akari Kitou).
Two characters we’ve already seen in the series, the Mist Hashira Muichiro Tokito and the Love Hashira Mitsuri Kanji will be joining them. In future seasons, expect to see additional Hashiras, as well as members of the Twelve Upper Moons/Twelve Kabuki.
Haruo Satozaki will direct, with Akira Matsushima handling the character design.
The first teaser for Demon Slayer season 3 is here: Swordsmith Village.
Last month, the first trailer for Demon Slayer season 3 was released. Unfortunately, it largely serves as a rehash of previous events.

However, there are some glimpses of new material in the sizzle reel: the Love and Mist Hashira are shown individually, and a new sword (later carried by Tanjiro) is being manufactured at the Swordsmith Village. You may see it in its entirety above.
Where can I watch Demon Slayer online?
Crunchyroll now has Demon Slayer accessible to watch. Given the recent merger with Funimation, we expect Demon Slayer season 3 to follow suit and be streamed there as well. In some areas, Netflix customers may watch the first season right now.
