The release date of Demon Slayer Season 2:
Demon Slayer season 2 has missed any chance of debuting in Spring and Summer lineups have all been locked in. At this juncture, Fall 2021 or Winter 2021 is looking far more likely.

- Hiro Shimono as Zenitsu
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Inosuke
- Muzan Kibutsuji voiced by Toshihiko Seki
Trailer of Demon Slayer Season 2:
You can watch the first Demon Slayer season 2 trailer now. Don’t expect more trailers, however, until over the summer. There is a nifty new poster which you can see here, though.
The plot of Demon Slayer Season 2:
The Demon Slayer season 2 story will adapt the ‘Entertainment District’ arc of the manga. In the source material that takes place after Mugen Train. So, yes, you will need to have watched the Demon Slayer movie before starting season 2 unless you want to be spoiled.
It’s a brave move to tie canonical events to a movie (a rarity in anime), but it’s worth knowing now unless you want to miss out on a large chunk of the plot. The second season, as shown by the trailer below, sees the group heading to Yoshiwara, a town with bright lights and dark desires.
Fertile ground for demons, then, and with the Sound Hashira (Tengen Uzui) also in tow, expect Tanjiro to maybe come into conflict with an Upper Moon or two.
Is Demon Slayer Season 2 worth watching?
We’re going to get demon slayer season two, and it’s a pretty big deal. Well, we’ll find out soon enough when demon slayer returns.
