The key visual for Demon Slayer season 3 teases two more Hashira that Tanjiro will meet and get to know. The teaser trailer consists of the same two images set over music. While Mugen Train introduced Rengoku and Entertainment District featured Uzui, Swordsmith Village will shine the spotlight on Mitsuri and Muichiro. As a reminder, Mitsuri is the Love Pillar and Muichiro is the Mist Pillar. While the two made minor appearances in the first season, the audience did not get to see much beyond the surface facets of their personalities.

The final episode of Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc aired on February 13, 2022. With its 45-minute run-time, it served to conclude the drama of the Entertainment District, as well as introduce characters to other members of the Upper Moon. There is no information on the release window for season 3 just yet. But for reference, season 1 ended on September 28, 2019 in Japan and season 2 started on October 10, 2021. This made for about a gap of two years.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is available on streaming services such as Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Hulu.
