Demon Slayer Season 3

Japanese streaming service Abema will host a special program centered around the Demon Slayer anime series. Called the Demon Slayer Corps Report, the special will air the latest information about the anime when it airs on December 10, 2022 in Japan. This could include a release window for the previously announced Demon Slayer season 3. Voice actor Natsuki Hanae, who voices Tanjiro Kamado, will also make an appearance. [Thanks, Dengeki!]

The Demon Slayer Corps Report will air on the Abema Anime Channel at 9:30pm JST on December 10, 2022. Producer Yuma Takahashi will act as MC for the program. It’s not confirmed if a release window for Demon Slayer season 3 will actually be announced during the program. However, the season is in production and will cover the Swordsmith Village story arc from the manga. Barring release info, scenes from the new season, or other projects, might also be on the docket.

Studio Ufotable produced the anime of Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer manga in 2019. Like the manga, it follows Tanjiro, who loses most of his family to a demon attack. With his surviving sister Nezuko – herself on the verge of turning into a demon after being wounded in the attack – he joins the Demon Slayer Corps, a secret organization of swordsmen dedicated to exterminating demons throughout Japan.

The 26-episode first season was follow up by a film sequel, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train. The film met with great success, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time in Japan and winning Best Animation at the 44th Japan Academy Film Prize Ceremony in 2021. A second Ufotable-produced season aired from late 2021 through February 2022, covering the Entertainment District story arc.

Demon Slayer is available to watch on various streaming services. The manga is published in English by Viz Media.
