Demon Slayer is a Japanese anime based on the titular manga series by Koyoharu Gotōge. Ever since it premiered on Netflix, it has observed exponential fame and popularity ever since its release. The data suggests that within five years of the series’ debut in February 2016, it generated over $8.75 billion in sales revenue, becoming one of the highest-grossing media franchises in history.
According to What’s on Netflix:
“Demon Slayer’s popularity has exploded thanks to some truly fantastic animation by the talented artists at Ufotable. The movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, broke Studio Ghibli’s Japan box office record by becoming the highest-grossing movie in the nation’s history.”
The Swordsmith Village Arc has officially premiered on Netflix. That being said, the fans of the show couldn’t wait for the arrival of the fourth season on the streaming giant. If you’re one of them, continue to read the article for more updates on that.
When will Demon Slayer season 4 arrive on Netflix?
Demon Slayer season 2, as all the ardent fans of the anime must be aware, underscored the Mugen Train arc, constituting a total of seven episodes that arrived on Netflix on January 21st, 2023. As a matter of fact, the arrival was observed just under fourteen months after the season one finale episode was broadcast in Japan on November 28th, 2021.
As per the sources, the Entertainment District Arc, foregrounded in season 3, followed suit with the finale aired in Japan on February 13th, 2022. It was available for streaming on Netflix on May 1st, 2022.
The Swordsmith Village Arc and the Entertainment District Arc have covered the same number of chapters of the manga, that is, 27, which were spread across 11 episodes each. This leads one to assume whether the upcoming tangent will cover the same number of episodes.
