Here is everything you need to know about the current status of Demon Slayer Season 2 on Netflix. 

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a Japanese anime series based on author Koyoharu Gotge’s manga. The series’ popularity has skyrocketed after the anime series’ premiere. As stated in many reports it is stated that in just over five years after the manga’s release in February 2016, the franchise has grossed over $8.75 billion in sales, making it one of the most successful media franchises ever. The fandom of the series is just as big as the series which makes this manga even more exciting to watch and explore the universe with fascinating characters.

As the series premiered, we have some updates involving when Demon Slayer Season 2 will be available for Netflix. We’ve looked over the list of new Netflix movies and episodes planned to launch in May 2022, and discovered that one of the fan-favorite feel-good series was absent, indicating that Demon Slayer Season 2 will not be coming soon to the digital streaming platform. 

Is Demon Slayer Season 2 coming to Netflix in May 2022?

As of May 25, 2022, there is no word on when Demon Slayer Season 2 will debut on Netflix. The streaming platform has not released any information on the series’ prospective premiere date of the series. Hence, it is apparent that Demon Slayer Season 2 will not be returning to your screens at least till the end of this month.

However, since the second season of Demon Slayer ended earlier this month, we may see it on Netflix sooner rather than later. So, we believe the second season could premiere on Netflix sometime this year. If the speculation regarding the second season is true we’ll most certainly learn more details about it by the end of May 2022. Hence, we suggest the viewers wait for some time for these details to be confirmed by the official network.

Demon Slayer Season 2 Netflix Release Date

The 18th episode, No Matter How Many Lives, Demon Slayer Season 2 came to a close on February 13, 2022. Hideki Hosokawa directed the episode, which was written by Toshiyuki Shirai and Takashi Suhara. It’s only been a few months since the episode aired, and Netflix has yet to set a release date for the series due to the short time frame. As previously stated, the platform typically requires some time between series in order to get such developments approved and made available on the streaming platform, which can take some time.  

According to What’s On Netflix, fans may be able to expect Season 2 to appear sometime in 2023. The assumption is based on the fact that Netflix picked up Demon Slayer Season 1 about 16 months after the Japanese finale aired.

If history repeats itself, June 2023 will be the month to watch. Fortunately, waiting for this date isn’t all bad news because, according to Netflix’s predicted schedule, the anime’s record-breaking film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, will be released much sooner than June 2023.

On the other hand, fans of the show may still be able to binge-watch it on Netflix, as the network may choose to make the announcement in the following days if fan demand is recognized and the show is made accessible to stream on the platform much sooner. As a result, we recommend that viewers be patient while waiting for such updates.
