Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date: [Update: January, 2022]
Who has watched this series, it’s very tough for you to wait any longer for season 2. I know it because I am really in love with that epic one.
The official release date of season 2 has been announced, and the sequel of the series was aired on 10 October 2021.
Earlier, A report revealed that Demon Slayer season 2 is “in production”. There was no indication of a “resume” of the work. So it was said that this may have been in production for a time being.
But we can’t say if it’s real. What we can do is, have patience and wait for the next season.
How Could We Figure Out If There Would Be Demon Slayer Season 2?
There was only news which we didn’t know whether true or not. But we, the fans of the series ourselves could figure it out considering some criteria. Well, I do this when I love a series so much.
By looking at the popularity, sales, and source material, we can decide whether there is going to be any sequel to a series. Believe me, in 95% of cases it works.
Source Material For Demon Slayer Season 2
Existing sources of a series are usually manga, light novels, etc. The main source material of this series is the manga series.
The manga series has 23 volumes and the last volume was published on May 18, 2020. It was so popular that it is being published in English and Spanish also.
Also, we can talk about light novels. The most important thing is how many light novels are published and if it’s still going on.
If light novels are still going on, the chances of a sequel increases. Like the Overlord series is an ongoing series that improved the chance of Overlord season 4 getting announced.
There are only 3 light novels on Demon Slayer. But here the novels’ release was after the immense popularity of the manga series. The timing of the light novel and anime release is so close.
Also, there’s nothing from which we can say that more light novels will see the light. But here, I don’t really think this is going to affect the anime series. Because Demon Slayer as a manga has got so much popularity around the world that light novels and a film are released.
So, there’s a possibility that we will see Demon Slayer season 2.
Sales And Profit For Demon Slayer Season 2
The manga of Demon Slayer had more than 100 million copies in circulation and is one of the best-selling series of all time.
If the profit of a series is not good, then a sequel may not be released. This happened in the case of Noragami and we can understand why there is no announcement of Noragami season 3.
In that case, the Demon Slayer is in a very safe position. The manga sale was so amazing that it crossed Japan’s top-selling “One Piece”. It has ranked the number 1 comic and best TV series.
The manga is sold in over thirty countries including China, Taiwan, England, Vietnam, the U.S.
Even if sales are not good, there is a hit like One Punch Man. One Punch Man season 3 will still be because of streaming money.
There is an announcement of a mobile game with the title Demon Slayer: Blood-Stench Blade Royal to be released in 2020. And also a video game will be released in 2021 by Aniplex for PlayStation 4.
Already so many pieces of merchandise are present in the market and many new items have come. Over 10 million Demon Slayer products have been sold in only Japan.
As new things are coming and sales are very profitable, there won’t be a problem with the release of next season.
Popularity Information For Demon Slayer
The series was so popular globally that Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have started streaming Demon slayer. Over 100 countries around the world have streamed the series.
The popularity of the Demon Slayer is increasing so much that various streaming platforms are adding this. Also, fans are growing throughout the world of the series. So, we can hope for season 2.

Who hasn’t seen this series yet, there’s good news for you! It’s finally available on Netflix and you can enjoy all the 26 episodes on this platform.
Also Amazon Video Prime and Funimation (a U.S. anime distribution company) are streaming this series.
What a great opportunity it is to discover the world of the demon slayer!
What Was The Story Of The Demon Slayer Season 1?
If you are interested in the storyline, then I can give you a little hint. That may help to look for the series.
Well, the story is about a 13 years old boy named Tanjiro. He is the family’s source of income and sells charcoal to the nearby village. One day he came from work and figured out his family was slaughtered by a demon and his sister turned into a demon.
But surprisingly, his sister was showing signs of human emotion and thoughts. After that he met Giyu Tomioka who was a demon slayer. And the demon slayer recruited Tanjiro to become a demon slayer. And thus he started thinking of curing his sister and avenging the death of his family.
So eventually the boy joined a secret demon-killing organization which was the Demon Slayer Corps, to find a cure for his sister.
This organization was waging a war secretly against demons who were humans. They possessed power by selling their humanity. They fed on humans to have supernatural abilities like strength, magic, regeneration, etc.
Humans can kill demons with only an alloy named Sun Steel. Poison from a flower, wisteria, is injected into the Sun Steel. Humans can also expose demons to sunlight for killing them.
The demon slayers are humans with a particular breathing technique that grants superhuman strength with increased resistance. During this time, he found interesting allies and hoped to defeat the demon who slaughtered his family.
So, this is mainly the plot of this series.
Is Demon Slayer Worth Watching?
I will say that Demon Slayer is one of the best animes I have ever watched. If you go to the visuals of the anime, not so many series stand a chance against it.
The anime shows a beautiful bitter-sweet story between siblings. The side characters are also very amazing.
The series has won the best TV series, best male character, best female character, best theme song, best director and so many in 2019.
So, I would suggest you watch it and it is really worth it!
We have come to the end of the article talking about Demon Slayer season 2. From the last season and other sources, we can say that season 2 is going to be huge hit.
