Find out when is Demon Slayer Season 2 dropping on Netflix.

A Japanese anime series based on the titular manga series by Koyoharu Gotōge, Demon Slayer 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. Not renewing it for a second season would come off as a surprise.

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.

With the second season of Demon Slayer concluding just recently, fans are highly anticipating the arrival of the season on Netflix. If you’re one of them, continue to read the article for more updates on that.

Season 2 has been streaming on the official network for a relatively longer duration than its predecessor. Premiering on Crunchyroll in 2021 and ending in February 2022, fans were expecting that the second season would drop on Netflix in that year itself. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Even the first season, whose finale was broadcast on September 28th, 2019, didn’t arrive until approximately 16 months later on January 22nd, 2021. 

Be that as it may, it seems that the time for waiting is almost up. The fans of the show do not have to wait in Netflix’s anteroom, hoping to watch the most anticipated and exciting season of the series. As per the notice, season 2 of Demon Slayer, consisting of all 18 episodes, confirms to arrive on Netflix on January 21st, 2023.

The second season of Demon Slayer relates events that occur after the Mugen Train depicted in the movie Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train. If it isn’t available to stream on Netflix, then you can watch an episodic version of the events related to the Mugen Train arc in the anime. 

The brand-new season underscores the Entertainment District arc which involves Tanjiro and his friends, who go to Yoshiwara, an infamous red-light district in Edo. Edo abounds demons and sinners who indulge in crime and other unsavoury acts. The rising action of this arc begins with the mysterious disappearance of several wives which leads to the speculation of a demoniac activity. The second season thus involves Tanjiro and his new friend who has surreptitious connections with the mystery, to unravel the story of disappearances.
