Demon Slayer is now a global phenomenon after its arrival in the west on Netflix, and back in Japan the movie continues to break box office records left and right.
But now we have gotten a glimpse at what will happen after the events of the movie with a brand new, short trailer previewing the famous Entertainment District Arc from the manga:
We only have a vague release date for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 2 right now, which is 2021, so this year. And if they’re saying 2021, that likely means late 2021. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba season 1 originally debuted in spring 2019 and ended in fall 2019, so we could be seeing about a two year gap between seasons. So needless to say, fans are excited to even hear the news that it’s arriving this year.
