The show made waves after its debut both in Japan and the USA. The unmatched hype of Demon Slayer has almost convinced the showrunners to renew the anime for a second season. But have they confirmed Demon Slayer Season 2? Good news for the fandom because the second season was greenlit quite recently. This brings us to our next big mystery regarding the release date of Demon Slayer Season 2. And as we know, animes can take really long for their production. How much will the fans have to wait to get a new season?
The fantasy anime show revolved around Tanjiro Kamado, a young man whose entire family was murdered by a demon except for Nezuku (his sister). But the plot twist was that after surviving the attack, Nezuku transforms into a demon. However, she helps her brother in a tough challenge to defeat the demons. And Tanjiro is the “demon slayer”!
Overall the action-packed first season had everything to offer; love, family, and friendship. In case you haven’t watched Demon Slayer yet, it should definitely be on your watchlist! There were several rumors about Demon Slayer Season 2; that the show’s second season will return in 2021. But how credible are these reports? Well, these rumors are true! Moreover, the same cast members (their characters) and the studio will be returning for the sequel. Below you’ll read more about the sequel of Demon Slayer!
Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date
Funimation has confirmed that Demon Slayer Season 2 will return in 2021. However, they didn’t provide us with a specific release date, but we are in the year’s final quarter, so we won’t have to wait for long. The first season can be streamed on several platforms; Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix. So, expect the sequel will also be revealed on the following sites.
But as always, international fans get to stream the second installment after the Japanese fans. So, if you’re an international fan, then the show will most likely be made available to you in 2022!
All the characters of “Demon Slayer” and “Mugen Train” will feature in the upcoming season. The following list contains the list of confirmed voice cast members and their characters:
- Natsuki Hanae as Tanjiro
- Akari Kitô as Nezuko
- Hiro Shimono as Zenitsu Agatsuma
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Inosuke Hashibira
- Tengen Uzui as Katsuyuki Konishi
- Muzan Kibutsuji as Toshihiko Seki
We are only sure about the return of the Japanese voice cast. There is no word on the English dubbing. But we are expecting the same voice cast will play their respective counterparts.
After the release, we got a spin-off movie, “Mugen Train,” which featured the same characters from Demon Slayer. In this series, we got to see Tanjiro and his friends (also demon slayer) embarking on a perilous journey. The storyline of Mugen Train slightly deviates away from the main plot, but if you want to consume some Demon Slayer content, you should definitely give it a watch. However, it is not necessary to watch to understand the storyline of Demon Slayer Season 2.
The finale of the first season revealed that Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke got their next big project as the members of the Demon Slayer Corps. This group had to face a demonic group led by Muzan Kibutsuji, the demon responsible for the murder of Tanjiro’s family.
Judging from the trailer, Demon Slayer Season 2 will follow the group while they go to Yoshiwara. This place is renowned for “bright lights and dark desires,” so expect many dark scenes in the upcoming season. Tanjiro, as a demon slayer, will have to face even deadlier enemies. Most likely, he’ll fight against Upper Moon or two.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Trailer
Luckily Funimation has revealed the trailer for Demon Slayer Season 2. Stream it before you miss out! The trailer showed the group of demon slayers in the Red-Light District of Yoshiwara, and for the entirety of the trailer, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Hopefully, the upcoming season will be as per our skyrocketing expectations!
