It was officially announced on February 13th, 2022 that Demon Slayer is getting season 3, but when will Demon Slayer season 3 be released, and which manga volumes will the new season cover?
Here’s everything we know so far regarding the new season of Demon Slayer and when it will be released.
The anime series Demon Slayer, also known as Kimetsu No Yaiba in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2016. The Demon Slayer manga is written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge.
Demon Slayer is a fantastic action anime series with demons and supernatural elements loved by people worldwide, which follows a Tanjiro whose family gets attacked by a demon.
Nezuko, his little sister, also gets turned into one of them. So Tanjiro sets out to become a demon slayer to turn her back into a human.
The anime television series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has taken the world by storm, with two seasons so far, along with a movie called Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, all directed by Haruo Sotozaki and animated by studio Ufotable.
We know that the studio Ufotable and the director Haruo Sotozaki will be returning for Demon Slayer s3.
The first 26-episode Demon Slayer television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2019.
Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting patiently for the new Demon Slayer season and the day when they will be able to watch the Demon Slayer Season 3 Episode 1.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date: When is Demon Slayer Season 3 Coming Out?
Unfortunately, Ufotable has yet to announce as of November 2022 when Demon Slayer season 3 will be released, so there is no countdown yet. We need to wait for more information about the third season.
However, the most likely release date is either July 2023 or October 2023. When the next season of Demon Slayer gets an official release date on the official Twitter account, we will let you know.
Most anime series are usually released 12 to 16 months after they are announced. So we should hear something about when the new season is coming out in the next few months.
Many anime fans want to know when season 3 of Demon Slayer will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates. So Let’s hope we will learn when Demon Slayer season 3 Episode 1 release date is soon.
Now let’s look at the plot of Demon Slayer Anime Season 3 and what manga volumes will the new season of Demon Slayer cover.
Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot: What Manga Volumes Will Demon Slayer Season 3 Cover?
So far, the anime adaptation of Demon Slayer has covered volumes 1 to 11. As a result, volume 12 continues where the anime ends.
So, if you can’t wait for Demon Slayer Season 3 to be out, consider picking up Demon Slayer Manga Volume 12 in English.
In Japan, there are currently 23 manga volumes of Demon Slayer released. In 2022, the Demon Slayer manga is finished. That means the story of KNY is completed.
Demon Slayer Season 3 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover manga volumes 12 to 14/15. Season three’s plot will be based on the ninth arc of the manga, the Swordsmith Village arc. Demon Slayer will most likely have four seasons in total.
We will see if the studio Ufotable is planning to include the Hashira training arc in this season.
I highly recommend checking out the Demon Slayer Manga. While the anime is almost perfect, it lacks the narration the manga provides. The source material is worthwhile to read because of that.
Demon Slayer Trailer: Is There Any Footage of The New Season Yet?
Season 3 of Demon Slayer has a trailer. It was released in early 2022 and is more of a teaser. A new Demon Slayer trailer is expected in December. I’ll put it here once it’s available.

Demon Slayer Season 3: Where Can You Watch it?
The first two seasons of Demon Slayer are available on Crunchyroll to watch, so Demon Slayer Season 3 will likely be as well. We’ll have to wait and see if the next season will be available on Netflix or Disney Plus.
Demon Slayer is presently one of the most successful anime series of all time, and the third season will be released in 2023. If you’re interested in the next season after this one, check out this Demon Slayer Season 4 article.
