Demon Slayer’s third season will return next year, with Ufotable working on making an anime adaptation of the “Swordsmith Village Arc.” After the great loss suffered by Tanjiro and his friends as part of the Mugen Train storyline, along with the deadly battle they took part in during the Entertainment District Arc, the Demon Slayer Corps will have to pick up the pieces, without even considering the fact that the strongest demons were under the command of Muzan. While the third season has yet to reveal its release date, Shonen fans are counting down the days until it hits the small screen anyway.
