There are some animes that even non-anime watchers have heard of, and Demon Slayer is one such anime. The highly popular anime franchise wrapped its second season in May of 2022. The season ended after an epic fight, leaving fans eager for more.
As of now, there is no official release date for the third season. But the official Demon Slayer account announced that the third season is in production, along with the first teaser image of the season. Another rumor via SiliconEra suggests that we may get some fresh information on December 10, following the premiere of the Demon Slayer movie Mugen Train on Japanese TV.
What to Expect From Demon Slayer Season 3
Demon Slayer Season 3’s plot will be based on the original manga’s ninth arc, the Swordsmith Village arc. The manga concluded in late 2020, providing fans with a basis for educated guesses about Tanjiro and the gang’s future.
The Swordsmith Village arc picks up after the Entertainment District arc, where we might see Tanjiro and Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui. They will be defeating the demon siblings Gyutaro and Daki, resulting in Tanjiro losing his demon-slaying sword. The third season will see Tanjiro travel to Swordsmith Village to get his beloved blade fixed. Satoshi Hino expressed his delight at the show’s success, saying, “I’m really happy to learn that the appeal of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Japanese animation has struck a chord with many overseas viewers.”
Cast of Demon Slayer Season 3
While the third season is still a long way off, fans can expect the voice cast to remain the same as in the previous seasons. In the English and Japanese versions, Tanjiro is played by Natsuki Hanae and Zach Aguilar, respectively.
- Nezuko Kamado is voiced by Akari Kitô and Abby Trott

Trailer for Demon Slayer Season 3
In April 2022, Crunchyroll and production company Ufotable released the first teaser trailer for Demon Slayer Season 3, which was more of a recap of seasons 1 and 2 than a trailer. Nonetheless, it provided fans with something to look forward to.
