Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) Season 2: Will It Happen?

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Despite the fact that Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) has just started airing, most of you were intrigued by the series, and thereby want to know whether there will be a Season 2. No doubt the anime worth watching. The series has already received the universal acclaim among the viewers. However, it's unclear so far, even how many episodes the 1st season consists of.

Yet already now it would be fair to note that Demon Slayer could have Season 2, and there are many reasons why. First, no matter how many episodes Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 1 consists of, the original manga series contains fifteen light novels. The last one was issued on April 4, 2019, on the eve of the series premiere. Koyoharu Gotooge thereby isn't going to stop working on the manga. Even if the 1st installment consists of 24 episodes (two cours), we still have a chance for Season 2, given so many source materials.

Secondly, looks like the viewers have been fully satisfied with the debut episode, given the statistics on MyAnimeList. Kimetsu no Yaiba currently holds a score of 8.28 based on about 11,000 votes. Finally, let's talk about Ufotable. The studio as a rule picks up its projects for another round. In addition, it's worth noting that there are a lot of top-rated anime series that were made under the wing of Ufotable. The final point in our forecast could be the BD/DVD sales statistics, yet we should wait for it a little bit, at least until the first season is concluded.

Summing up, even despite Demon Slayer is currently airing, already now we might make a bold assumption that Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) Season 2 is just a matter of time. However, also worth mentioning that in the case of anime, the term "time" could last years. Nonetheless, we hope that Ufotable is serious about their new anime project and the waiting won't last so long.

And of course, all the data above are just our forecast based on the statistics. No doubt, we should wait for the official announcement from Ufotable. As soon as the studio reveals any data about renewal, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates. But please, don't be so naive while reading unreliable sources and media outlets that promise you that they know Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) Season 2 release date. There even is no official announcement of a next season so far. Therefore, be careful!
