Demon Slayer’ Season 2 Day-And-Date Streams On Funimation; Netflix Release Anticipated
The release date for Demon Slayer season 2 has finally been confirmed by Ufotable, but there is some considerable confusion as to when new content will air.
‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ is arguably one of the most successful and popular anime franchises of the past few years.
Season 1 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 sequel movie ‘Mugen Train’ has broken countless Box Office records in Japan and even became the highest-grossing film of 2020 internationally.
However, Ufotable have recently confirmed the release date for season 2, but with an unusual twist that has caused some confusion online amonst fans.
Before the Entertainment District arc anime adaptation, fans will have to sit through a seven-episode recap arc of the blockbuster movie, which comes with new visual and background music. The Entertainment District arc will premiere its one-hour pilot episode on Dec. 5
Demon Slayer season 2 release date
During the ‘Demon Slayer Matsuri Online -Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival’, it was confirmed that season 2 of the hit anime would return in 2021. It was then revealed that Demon Slayer season 2 would premiere on the broadcasting slate Fall and also run through to the Winter slate.
However, there is a twist to the Demon Slayer season 2 broadcast, with the first seven episodes in season 2 being a re-adaptation of the Mugen Train movie, starting on October 10th.
The first of these seven episodes will consist of original content, focusing on Rengoku as he travels towards the Mugen Train. However, the remaining six episodes will then be a reboot of the 2020 feature film.
The Entertainment District Arc, i.e. the events following from Mugen Train, will then premiere on December 5th, 2021 with a special one-hour broadcast.
New episodes will air on Fuji TV in Japan at 11: 15 PM every Sunday, but an international release time has not been confirmed.
Is Demon Slayer getting a season 2?
For Netflix subscribers, the streaming giant has not yet announced if it would launch “Demon Slayer” season 2 this year. Fans anticipated that Netflix would announce the release date of “Kimetsu no Yaiba” season 2 during its Tudum event, but unfortunately, it did not.
Instead, fans learned that Netflix will release episodes of “JoJo’sBizarre Adventure Stone Ocean” every month and “Attack on Titan” in January 2022. As for when fans can start viewing “Demon Slayer” season 2 on the streaming service, it is believed that it will not likely release until March 2022.
“Demon Slayer” season 1 is still available on Netflix. The anime was released nine months after the first episode of the season premiered in Japan. If Netflix follows the same release pattern, fans can expect the second season to air sometime in the summer or spring of 2022.
What day is season 2 of Demon Slayer coming out?
It is worth noting that neither Ufotable nor Netflix has said anything about the release of the anime’s second season on the streaming platform. Fans should temper their expectations and take the latest information about its potential Netflix streaming date as speculative.
Starting Oct. 10, fans will be in for a treat since both the “Mugen Train” recap and “Entertainment District Arc” will feature two of the most powerful Hashiras of the Demon Slayer Corps. The former will feature the Fire Hashira Senjuro Rengoku while the latter, the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui.
Demon Slayer Season 2 to Stream With Funimation and Crunchyroll
The second season of Demon Slayer is set to be one of the biggest batch of episodes landing in the medium of anime this fall, with the first episode of the Mugen Train Arc arriving on October 10th. With Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke once again grabbing their weapons to battle against the insane supernatural forces seeking to eat humanity one at a time, the second season which will be covering the story of the first feature-length film of the Shonen series, as well as the Entertainment District Arc, will be hitting two of the biggest anime streaming services.
While Demon Slayer has appeared on Crunchyroll and Hulu in the past, Funimation hit the ground floor running by exclusively offering the company’s subscribers a look at the Mugen Train movie, which became one of the highest-grossing movies of 2020. Bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars of profits, Mugen Train also was able to become the number one movie in North America for one weekend, proving that the Shonen franchise is continuing to skyrocket when it comes to its popularity. It seems however that Demon Slayer’s upcoming season will be hitting both Funimation and Crunchyroll, along with Hulu.
The streaming services in question revealed that the upcoming second season would be arriving on their platforms on October 10th, beginning with the Mugen Train Arc and, after seven episodes of the movie adaptation, diving into the Entertainment District Arc which will see the fallout from Tanjiro and his friends’ journey on the runaway locomotive
While the anime still has plenty of material left to cover if it wants to create a season three and/or more movies that can bring in insane box office profits, the manga story came to a close in 2020, bringing to an end the story of Tanjiro attempting to avenge his family while searching for a cure for his sister Nezuko. While creator Koyoharu Gotouge hasn’t revealed any information when it comes to a potential sequel to the Shonen series, there are definitely plenty of fans that are hoping that we’ll one day see the universe revisited.

“Demon Slayer” season 2 kicks off on Dec. 5
The seven-episode “Demon Slayer: Infinity Train” TV recap premieres Oct. 10
Netflix has not yet announced if it would stream “Demon Slayer” season 2 this year
Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date Confirmed
The second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba now has an official release date! Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series has exploded in popularity since the debut of the anime’s first season back in 2019, and it has sparked a whole new wave of fandom for not only the original manga, but huge box office victories for the anime’s debut film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, as well. Fans have been highly anticipating the full second season of the anime, and after confirming its return for the Fall 2021 anime schedule, the official release date has been confirmed…with a twist.
Demon Slayer Season 2 will be officially kicking off the adaptation for the Entertainment District arc of Gotouge’s original manga on December 5th. While this late season debut seems shocking for such a highly anticipated series, there’s actually going to be a very good reason for this. But it’s likely to divide fans who want to jump into the completely new content as soon as possible without reliving the events of the Mugen Train arc from the feature film as Season 2 will be first returning for a new take on Mugen Train beginning on October 10th.
While the official Entertainment District arc will be kicking off with a one-hour special episode this December, the anime will be returning this Fall with a new version of the Mugen Train arc. Beginning on October 10th, the second season of the anime will be technically starting with seven episodes showing off the Mugen Train arc from the feature film. The premiere episode will be completely new, but the following episodes will feature the events of the Mugen Train arc seen in the film. There will be some brand new footage for fans worried about retreading old ground, but for fans who want a completely new experience it will begin in December with that one-hour episode kicking off the Entertainment District arc.
This means fans will get their fill of new Demon Slayer anime episodes beginning in October, but the truly new story material will begin in December as the anime prepares to finish out its second cour and continue into early 2022 for the remainder of its big anime return. But what do you think of this idea? Curious to see how the TV anime will be handling a recap of the movie? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!

‘Demon Slayer’ Season 2 Finally Gets a Release Date, But We’ll Have to Wait a Bit Longer
It was rumored that the second season of Demon Slayer, the Entertainment District Arc would premiere in October, and in a way, those rumors were half-correct? We are getting Demon Slayer next month, but it is not the new arc. Rather, Funimation has announced it will stream Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc, a seven-episode TV adaptation of the feature film, which will then lead to the Entertainment District Arc this December.
Indeed, remember how successful Mugen Train was, and how well-suited the short arc seemed to a movie format? Well, it seems the studio only focused on the former, because they are milking that cow for everything it’s worth, with a seven-episode TV adaptation of Mugen Train that will kick-off on October 10.
According to Funimation, the TV adaptation will include an entirely original episode that tells the story of the time before the legend Rengoku went onboard the Mugen Train, as well as “70 news scenes, new music tracks, new open and ending animation, episode previews and new theme songs.” Yes, for those keeping track, the new music tracks will include songs by LiSA, who will contribute the opening song “Akeboshi” (Morning Star) and ending song “Shirogane” (Silver) for the TV arc.
‘Demon Slayer: Mugen Train’ Limited Edition Blu-ray Release Includes Audio Commentary and More
Then, once we are done revisiting a movie extended over seven weeks, it will finally be time for Entertainment District Arc, which introduces a new major demon named Daki. At least we’ll get the treat of an hour-long premiere episode on Sunday, December 5. Sadly LiSA will not perform songs for the new arc, but instead it will be Aimer who will sing the theme songs for the opening episode, “Zankyosanka” and “Asa ga kuru.”
The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime series first debuted in 2019. The story follows young Tanjiro who much find a cure for his sister who has been turned into a demon after their family was slaughtered by them. It is based on Koyoharu Gotoge’s manga of the same name.
