It’s Official! Demon Slayer season 2 is scheduled to be released on December 5th, 2021. The season 2 will adapt the “entertainment district arc”. The first episode will be 1-hour long special.
Before the season 2 release, “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train” film will be released in episodic form as a separate arc. Mugen Train Arc will have 7 episodes scheduled to start airing on October 10. The first episode of the Mugen Train Arc will have brand new material (not included in the film). All other 6 episodes will also be re-edited to include new scenes and music.
Previously, it was confirmed that Demon Slayer season 2 will be returned either in October or November. Furthermore, the time slot for episode release has been changed to late night (11:45 PM). The next arc “Entertainment Arc” is on a topic which most of Japanese parents are uncomfortable to talk about. So, late night time slot means that anime won’t get censored.
LiSA will return for the theme songs for Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Arc with the opening theme “Akeboshi” and ending theme ”Shirogane”.
Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc will feature theme songs by Aimer including opening theme “Zankyosanka” and ending theme ”Asa ga kuru”.
Miyuki Sawashiro will voice the new antagonist of “Entertainment District Arc” called Daki. Miyuki is well known in the anime industry for voicing some of the fan favorite characters like Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter, Koyonagi from Wotakoi and Bishamon from Norogami.
