Demon Slayer Season 4, will it happen or not?
It’s natural that anime fans expect further installments of their favorite series. Finding out what happened to your favorite character after being left on a cliffhanger is undoubtedly an exciting feeling.
That feeling increases exponentially when the series in question is the uber-popular Demon Slayer. The anime adaption by Ufotable of Koyoharu Gotouge s’ manga series has smashed multiple viewership and box office records.
Considering, Demon Slayer only made its debut in 2019 and with other long-running series like Pokémon, Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach incredibly popular; Demon Slayer has amassed one of the largest and most passionate fanbases of any anime media franchise.
Demon Slayer follows the story of Tanjirou Kamado, who, after his father s’ death and an impoverished life, works hard to earn an honest living to support his family.
On his way back from downtown after selling charcoal, Tanjirou finds his entire family massacred by a demon attack, and the only surviving family member left is his sister Nezuko. She has been turned into a bloodthirsty demon.
Things go from bad to worse when the Demon Slayer, Giyu Tomioka, comes across Nezuko and tries to kill her. But to his surprise, Nezuko is different from other demons as she fights off her killing urges and protects Tanjirou.
Impressed by the brother-sister bond, Tomioka spares Nezuko s’ life and tells Tanjirou to find Sakonji Urokodaki, who instructs him to join the Demon Slayer Corps and slay the demon who killed his family.
Can Tanjirou avenge his family s’ death and turn Nezuko back into a human is the central plot of the show.
Although Demon Slayer fans are privy to the possibility of a third season, the expectations for season four are simultaneously building up.

WHAT IS THE DEMON SLAYER SEASON 4 RELEASE DATE?
Demon Slayer season one aired from 6th April 2019 to 28th September 2019 for 26 episodes. The series was renewed for a second season which ran in two parts, i.e., part one aired from 7th October 2021 to 28th November 2021 for seven episodes, and part two ran from 5th December 2021 to 13th February 2022.
That Demon Slayer season 3 is already under production and will cover the Swordsmith Village Arc. Two key visuals were released featuring Muichiro Tokito and Mist Hashira on 13th February 2022.
As of writing, there is no official update from Ufotable or the writer on the renewal status of Demon Slayer Season 4.
|Demon Slayer Season 1||6th April 2019|
|Demon Slayer Season 2||7th October 2021|
|Demon Slayer Season 3||Release Date TBA|
|Demon Slayer Season 4||Yet to be renewed|
With that being said, Demon Slayer fans should not fret about the lack of renewal. Ufotable studios aren’t the biggest production studios out there, but they have a reasonably consistent release schedule. Additionally, the financial success and lure of a series like Demon Slayer is also motivating factor for the creators.
Furthermore, the title of the future installments will be replaced by Story arcs from the move on from the conventional numeric titles. This means Demon Slayer season 3 will now be labeled, Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc.
The Demon Slayer Machi Asobi event is scheduled to take place on 15th October 2022, wherein multiple details will be released for Demon Slayer 3, including a release date. Following this, a fair assessment can be made about the renewal status and release date of Demon Slayer season 4.
In any case, if Demon Slayer season 3 premiers in mid-late 2023, then we can expect Demon Slayer Season 4release date to be around late 2024.
UPDATE: On 1st March Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Swordsmith Village Arc (Season 3) Trailer was revealed along with a new trailer and Release Date was confirmed as 9th April 2023.
While there is no Demon Slayer Season 4 trailer at the moment, you can enjoy the Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village trailer below:
DEMON SLAYER SEASON 4 PLOT
As mentioned previously, Demon Slayer season 3 will cover the Swordsmith Village Arc, which is the ninth arc from the Demon Slayer manga. If season three runs for two cours, we can expect the tenth arc, i.e., Hashira Training Arc, also to be covered, which means Demon Slayer season 4 manga adaption will begin by the Final Battle Arc.
The Final Battle Arc is split into two sub-arcs, i.e., Infinity Castle Arc and the Sunrise Countdown Arc.
Infinity castle battle will begin with Shinobu fighting against Upper Rank 2 demon Doma who is unaffected by Poison. Can she avenge her elder sister by killing the demon?
Kyojuro Rengoku was killed in the battle against Akaza, can Tanjirou avenge him and will any more Hashiras be killed?A mega battle between Tanjirou vs Akaza will be character pay off fight since Tanjirou s’ training and and new abilities will be put to the test.
The Demon Slayer vs Muzan is probably the most looked forward showdown in the Final Battle Arc. Despite the may explosions, Muzan s’ regeneration is unmatched and its proving difficult for the Demon Slayers to kill him.
