Demon Slayer has become a huge hit among fans. But was it good enough to secure a second season? Let's get into it!
Demon Slayer or Kimetsu no Yaiba has become one of the most popular new Animes to date. With just one season, the Anime has managed to captivate audiences worldwide with its Shounen storytelling and amazing fight scenes. We can easily see why boys between the age of 8-18 love it so much.
Demon Slayer was produced by Studio Ufotable and is based on a Japanese manga series by Koyoharu Gotooge. The first season of the adapted Anime premiered on April 6, 2019, until September 28, 2019. But, with the first season over, everyone is thirsty to know whether or not Studio Ufotable is working on a second season. Well, let's explore.
It's no secret that fans of the show are clamoring for a second season, pressuring Studio Ufotable into making a decision quickly. As of now, Ufotable has yet to announce anything regarding a second season. But, we at Trinikid are 100% certain that it will be returning. Why are we so confident, you might ask? Well, firstly, there is no lack of content. 3 volumes of the Manga were not included in season 1 of the Anime and Koyoharu Gotooge will be releasing a 17th volume of the Manga on October 4th. There is also no indication that Gotooge will be stopping anytime soon. And with an 8.48/10 from 11,000 votes on MyAnimeList, it is clear that it is a very loved show.
Another thing to consider is the overall popularity of not only the Anime but also the Manga. In May 2019 the sales of the manga got to over six million which is an ungodly amount of sales. We will be very surprised if the show gets canceled. The only major issue that can see the show canceled is the tight schedule of the studio. Ufotable is a small studio and they may not be able to release Demon Slayer Season 2 as well as work on their other successful projects. And since the company usually works on one big project per year we may either see the show canceling after the movie or a long wait. The show may also give the project to a bigger studio. Only time will tell.
Demon Slayer season 1 was such a hit that soon after the finale Studio Ufotable announced that a Demon Slayer movie is in the works. The movie is expected to premiere in Q4 2020. We even recently got a teaser trailer.
But in regards to season 2 of the series there has yet to be any official announcement. New seasons of Animes usually take quite a while to be released so we can end up waiting for years before we even get an announcement regarding its renewal status. As of now, our best guess is 2022. We will be keeping our ears out for any news about a new season. But, at least for now you can look forward to seeing the movie.
The Demon Slayer movie is coming and it has been confirmed that the director of the first season of the show, Haruo Sotozaki will be returning. The movie has been given the title Demon Slayer: Demon Train Arc or Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-Hen. As the title implies, the movie will revolve around the demon train and will be a movie adaptation of Demon Slayer: Infinite Train. The movie will continue after the final events of the first season where we saw the main characters boarding the Infinite Train.
Adult Swim has officially announced that the English dub of Demon Slayer season 1 will premiere on Toonami on October 12th. The announcement was made on the official Toonami Facebook page to the delight of many fans. The full first season is on Crunchyroll in Japanese audio and English subtitles but for English speakers it's going to be much easier to enjoy the show if it is English-dubbed
The show follows a young boy named Tanjiro Kamado. He sells Charcoal on the streets to help support his family, but one day when he makes his way back home after selling Charcoal he finds that his entire family has been attacked and killed by demons known as "oni". Only his little sister Nezuko survived the attack but she has unfortunately become a demon herself. Tanjiro then sets out to seek revenge on the demons by slaying all of them. He also tries to save his little sister from the predicament that she found herself in.

Demon slayer is such a great anime and I'm sad to see it go, but what a great sendoff for the finale. I hope there would be a season 2 later on. pic.twitter.com/UqgIGivycB— SpookySkully (@RelaxSkull) September 28, 2019
