Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date, Story & What You Should Know

It was officially announced on Feb 13th, 2022, at the final episode of the Demon Slayer Season 2 that Demon Slayer is getting a season 3, but when will Demon Slayer Season 3 be released, and which manga volumes will the new season cover?

Here’s everything we know so far about the new season of Demon Slayer and when it will be released.

The anime series Demon Slayer, also known as Kimetsu no Yaiba in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2016.

The Demon Slayer manga series is written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge.

Demon Slayer is a fantastic shonen anime series loved by people worldwide, which follows Tanjiro Kamado, who strives to become a demon slayer after his family was slaughtered and his younger sister Nezuko turned into a demon.

Together with Inosuke and Zenitsu, they are trying to turn Nezuko back.

The anime Demon Slayer has only had two seasons and a movie, Mugen Train, all directed by Haruo Sotozaki and animated by Studio Ufotable.

The director and studio will return for Demon Slayer s3.

The first 26 episodes of the Demon Slayer television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2019. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that can’t wait for Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 1.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date

Demon Slayer Season 3 is set to premiere in April 2023, with a one-hour-long special, so you can start the countdown. We need to wait for more information about the exact day the third season will air.

But, when the third season gets an exact release date on the Demon Slayer official Twitter account, we will let you know.

We also learned that the first three episodes of the Swordsmith Village Arc will air in  the cinema first.

Most anime series get an exact release day a few weeks before they air. In the case of Demon Slayer Season 3, we will learn it on likely in Anime Japan 2023 at the end of March.

So we should hear something about the exact day next month.

Let’s hope we will get to learn when Demon Slayer season 3 is coming out soon.

Many anime fans want to know when season 3 of Demon Slayer will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot

So far, the first and second seasons of the Demon Slayer anime covered volumes 1 to 11. As a result, volume 12 continues where the anime ends.

So, if you can’t wait for Demon Slayer Season 3 to be out, have a look at Demon Slayer Manga Volume 12.

In Japan, there are 23 volumes of Demon Slayer released. Demon Slayer’s manga is already finished in 2023. That means the story is completed.

I highly recommend checking out the Demon Slayer manga. Many fans like books as much as anime, and it is the best way to continue the story.

Demon Slayer Season 3 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover the ending of manga volumes 12 to 14/15 also known as the Swordsmith Village Arc.

So three more volumes of Demon Slayer will be adapted into anime by the studio Ufotable.

It will take two more seasons and a movie after that to adapt everything from the Demon Slayer franchise that is available.

Last Thoughts On Demon Slayer Season 3

Sometimes I worry about the quality of sequels, but not for this series. Fortunately, the Demon Slayer studio, Ufotable, is one of the best, so the animation quality should be as good as season 2 if not better.
