When Is the ‘Demon Slayer’ Season 2 release date?
Right now, there’s no specific date for when the next season of Demon Slayer will be published. But we are getting nearer. We do know it will be released in October 2021 thanks to Yahoo Japan. Airing on Fuji TV in Japan, it’ll be long-awaited by fans. It has been almost two decades since the first season aired, and it’ll be a year since the film was released in October 2020.
At this time, there is no word about when the second season will debut in the U.S. so American fans might still need to wait. If the movie is any indication, we will not be watching new Demon Slayer episodes in the USA for a couple of months.
Netflix has likely been working with Ufotable, the cartoon studio that produces the Demon Slayer anime. Hopefully, this means that we might get a U.S. release date sooner rather than later.
