Is Demon Slayer season 3 confirmed? Demon Slayer Season 3 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the third season of this anime series.

The question is, will there be a season 3 of Demon Slayer? And when is Demon Slayer season 3 coming out?

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Demon Slayer anime season 3 will happen in 2022, as well as a potential release date.

The Demon Slayer anime, known as Kimetsu no Yaiba in Japan, is based on a successful manga.

The Demon Slayer manga series is written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge.

Demon Slayer is fantastic action anime series with demons and supernatural elements, so it’s no wonder that fans worldwide are asking if Demon Slayer will have a season 3.

The main protagonist of this anime series is Tanjiro Kamado.

The story is about Tanjiro, whose family is attacked and killed by a demon. Nezuko, his little sister, is also turned into one of them. So Tanjiro sets out to become a demon slayer.

How many seasons of Demon Slayer are there? There have only been two seasons of the Demon Slayer anime. So there is no season 3 of Demon Slayer yet.

There was also a film called Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen in 2020. The movie is a direct continuation of the first season, with the highest box-office ever in Japan.

The first season of the Demon Slayer anime, with 26 episodes, premiered in Japan in April 2019. Since then, Kimetsu no Yaiba has grown into one of Japan’s most successful anime series, with many fans hoping that Demon Slayer will get a season 3.

Over the last six years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

Demon Slayer Season 3 - Key Visual

Will There Be A Season 3 Of Demon Slayer?

We must look at two factors to determine if there will be a Demon Slayer Season 3 and the likely Demon Slayer Season 3 release date.

The first factor is the source material, and the second is how much profit the first two seasons and the movie made.

We will now examine both to see if Demon Slayer will have a season 3 or not.

Demon Slayer Season 3 Manga

For the Demon Slayer anime, the source material is the manga.

How many volumes of Demon Slayer are there? As of December 2021, there are 23 volumes of Demon Slayer. There are also a few light novels for this series.

Is the Demon Slayer manga finished? The Demon Slayer manga finished with volume 23, so the story is over. Likely, there will be some short stories and light novels released for this series in the future.

Koyoharu Gotouge, the Kimetsu no Yaiba author, published the last volume in Japan on December 4, 2020.

Demon Slayer Volume 24 Release Date? There will never be a release date for volume 24 of Demon Slayer because the series ended with volume 23.

Where to start reading Demon Slayer after the end of season 2? The Demon Slayer manga after the second season is Volume 12.

So, if you want to continue the story from where the second season ended, have a look at Demon Slayer Manga Volume 12 in English.

The first season of Demon Slayer adapted volumes 1 to 6, and the movie did volumes 7 and 8. The second season of the anime will use volumes 9 to 11.

That means there is enough content for Demon Slayer season 3 as well.

I highly recommend checking out the Demon Slayer Manga. Many fans prefer manga over anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2021.

Demon Slayer’s Profitability and Sales Figures

How well did the Demon Slayer Blu-ray sell? The Demon Slayer Blu-ray sold roughly 30,000 copies per disk for the first season. The Movie – Mugen Train sold even better, with more than 1,700,000 copies sold.

The Blu-ray sales are crazy, but the manga did even better.

How well did the Demon Slayer manga sell? Volume 23 of Demon Slayer sold 5,171,440 copies, a feat that even One Piece could not achieve.

I wonder if we will ever see any other series with this kind of sales.

How many copies does Demon Slayer have in print? As of 2021/02/15, the Demon Slayer series had 150,000,000 copies in print.

It is one of the top 8 most popular manga series of all time.

How much merchandise is there for Demon Slayer? There are more than 1150 figurines, which is insane. There are also more than 19,500 pieces of merchandise made for this series.

Less than 1% of all anime series get more than this.

Some figures are beautiful, like this Rengoku Flame Breathing and this Shinobu Kocho Insect Breathing figure. Also, check out this stunning Tanjiro Breath of Water.

I think it’s clear why this series got a second season and that Demon Slayer makes more than enough money to get a third season.

I highly recommend checking out Demon Slayer merchandise if you’re a fan of the Demon Slayer series. There is some fantastic stuff made for this franchise.

Demon Slayer Season 3 - Release Date

Demon Slayer season 3 Release Date

As of December 2021, Demon Slayer Season 3 doesn’t have a release date, even if it is confirmed. However, the release date for the third season of Demon Slayer will likely be in the second half of 2023.

A new season of Demon Slayer is just a matter of time since it made billions of dollars of profit for Shueisha and Aniplex.

And even better news for Kimetsu no Yaiba fans is that Ufotable is on the production committee.

That means they take part of the profit that Demon Slayer makes. So I believe it’s in their interest to make the best possible animation for this series.

But even if that’s the case, Demon Slayer Season 3 will still take at least a minimum of one year to produce after the second season.

That’s why I doubt we will get a release date for the third season anytime soon.

I would imagine that Shueisha and Aniplex want to milk this series as much as they are capable.

So you should expect some new stuff between seasons two and three. Maybe even another movie.

So don’t be surprised to see some spin-offs, OVAs, or other stuff like that announced.

This anime series is going to get a complete adaptation.
