Demon Slayer Season 4: Is it in the works?

Much to the reader’s delight, the reports circulating all over social media are true! The beloved Japanese anime television series based on the manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge, will be back for another mind-blowing season which will be true to the theme that follows the story of a teenage Tanjiro Kamado, who strives to become a Demon Slayer after his family was slaughtered and his younger sister, Nezuko, turned into a demon.

The announcement was made official after the end of the third season finale, which covered the “Swordsmith Village” arc. 

Though the official release date of the next season is still not confirmed, we speculate that it might be aiming for a 2024 release, with the ideal release window being somewhere between July and September, after a year-long break to complete post-production on time before its official release on the platform. Moreover, the fourth season has also been confirmed to cover the “Hashira Training” arc, which was announced following the end of the third season finale.

The official synopsis of the season, which will be the tenth story arc of Kimetsu no Yaiba, is as follows: “Tanjiro goes to see the Stone Hashira, Himejima, who intends to prepare him for the battles to come. The training to become a Hashira—a high-ranking member of the Demon Slayer Corps—is intense and demanding. Earning Himejima’s approval seems impossible, but Tanjiro won’t give up! Meanwhile, the demon lord Muzan continues to search for the location of Nezuko and Ubuyashiki.”

It’s not surprising that the series is returning for another season, as the manga has over 150 million copies in circulation, including digital versions, making it the ninth best-selling manga series of all time. Both the manga and its anime adaptation have received critical acclaim. The anime series has received numerous awards and is considered one of the best anime of the 2010s. In 2020, the Demon Slayer franchise generated an estimated annual sales revenue of $8.75 billion, becoming one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
