The immensely popular anime “Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba” (also known as “Demon Slayer”) has taken the world by storm. The TV adaptation of the manga was a huge success in Japan, and it has had equal success in the U.S. The fantasy anime action series is about Tanjiro Kamado. He returns home from work to discover that his entire family has been killed by a demon. Nezuko survived, but she was transformed into a demon by the demon. However, she retains enough human traits to suppress her desire to kill and instead aids her brother in fighting demons.
Tanjiro recruits Nezuko to help him become a demon-slayer. The story is action-packed and creepy but also touching and about friendship and family. Season 2 will be released later in the year. We have everything we know about the next season “Demon Slayer.”
When will Demon Slayer Season 2 release?
Although there was an official announcement about the next season, no release date has been given (via Netflix Live). We know that it will be released sometime in 2021. However, some believe it could drop as soon as this summer. This is bad news for Netflix subscribers. Crunchyroll confirmed that Season 2 will air this summer. However, the 26-episode second arc of the Crunchyroll series is not expected to end until November 2021 at the earliest. Between the premiere of Season 1 and Netflix’s January release, there was a 16-month delay. It could take until late 2022, or even 2023 before Netflix subscribers have access to subs and dubs (via Netflix).
