Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba just packed up with its Season 2 finale but the hype for the next season isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
The last we saw of Tanjiro and the gang, they had just defeated the Upper Rank Six demon duo, Daki, and Gyutaro with the help of the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui.
Recap of the Last Season
Though the season finished off with a nice bow, finishing up storylines with Tengen and his wives as well as killing off Gyutaro and Daki in a respectable antagonist way, which is something that is highly accredited to Demon Slayer antagonists, some characters made the Internet pop when the last episode aired.
The internet was absolutely buzzing when one of the Upper-Rank Demons was seen in the flashback for Daki and Gyutaro. He looked amazing in the short scene that he was presented in and it all hyped up the fans of Demon Slayer even more for the upcoming season.

Another highly suspicious thing was the comment that the Snake Hashira Obanai Iguro made in regards to Uzui’s condition after the fight with Gyutaro and Daki. He commented that Upper-Rank Demons are flies in front of the power that the Hashiras hold.
While the reaction of the Demon Slayer Corp leader, Kagaya Ubuyashiki completely flipped the comment as he was completely taken aback in excitement and shock about the fact that Uzui and Tanjiro’s team were able to defeat the Upper Rank Six demons.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Announcement
The question for everyone’s mind is when will the next season crash into anime otakus’ hands. Well, in the last episode of Demon Slayer there was a teaser trailer where the next season was announced. In the teaser, we found out that the next season is named The Swordsmith Village arc.
As nothing is confirmed by ufotable production right now, there is no official release date announced yet, many have speculated that the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 will most probably be included in the Fall 2023 Anime Season or the Summer 2023 Anime Season.
The hype for season 3 has doubled since two Hashiras were seen in the teaser for the newest season. The Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanjori and Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito will be the main protagonists alongside our ragtag team of Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Nezuko.
The story of Tanjiro and Nezuko, fighting for their survival and meeting new friends and foes down the line, be human or demon, will continue to awe and shock us when we meet them again in the next season.
Anticipation for the Next season
If the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba are any indication of how long this season will go on, then anime fans will be sad to know that the chapters for the Entertainment Arc are pretty similar to the Swordsmith Village Arc and thus we can expect another batch of 11-12 Demon Slayer episodes to come out.
While this may be disheartening for some, the fact that ufotable production only has Demon Slayer on its back to carry forward, any expectation that Demon Slayer Season 3 is shaping to form is going to be exceeded by them if anything.
After the release of season 2, ufotable production has announced that production has begun for the next season on 13 February.
So let’s continue the hype and wait for the inevitable masterclass in animation and storytelling that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 will eventually be when it comes out.
