With the Demon Slayer movie continuing to break records, fans are desperate to know what date season 2 will release online.
‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ is arguably one of the most successful and popular anime franchises in recent memory.
Season 1 of Demon Slayer not only won the ‘Best Anime’ award at the 2019 Newtype Anime Awards, but also the ‘Anime of the Year’ at the 2020 Crunchyroll Anime Awards.
Since then, the Demon Slayer movie, Mugen Train, has broken countless Box Office records in Japan and has even become the 4th highest-grossing film of 2020.
With the anime releasing on selected Netflix platforms this week, many fans are wondering if Demon Slayer season 2 has been confirmed and what date it could release online?
Demon Slayer season 2 release date…
- A release date for Demon Slayer season 2 has not been officially announced, but the series is predicted to return in Fall or Winter 2021.
Whilst a release date for season 2 has not yet been revealed, it was reported on October 15th that the second season of Demon Slayer was “in production.”
However, as this announcement did not disclose when work on season 2 officially started, nor when it could release around the world.
Based on the available information, an optimistic prediction for the release date of Demon Slayer season 2 would be Fall 2021, but a more realistic expectation would be for a Winter 2021 or even early-2022 premiere.
Interestingly, there is a chance that the sequel season to Demon Slayer could be at risk because of Mugen Train’s success.
As popular YouTuber ‘Kanjic’ discussed in a recent video, the incredible performance of the film could influence the decision to produce a second season – instead focusing on a series of movies to expand revenue.
