KEY POINTS

  • "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 is scheduled to air next Sunday but those looking forward to seeing the Entertainment District Arc will have to wait a little longer since it is not quite the return many anticipated. The series will premiere on JapanTV in a few days and Netflix, Crunchyroll and Funimation viewers will also have the chance to check out this year's biggest anime release from Ufotable.

American entertainment company Funimation announced that the first episode of "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" TV adaptation will premiere on Oct. 10.  Funimation also confirmed it will stream all new episodes day-and-date in the West.

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

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.

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.
