Demon Slayer has quickly established itself as one of the most popular anime franchises, with the most recent feature, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, generating more than $503 million worldwide. The highly anticipated second season premiered on Oct. 10, bringing Tanjiro Kamado and his buddies back to the small screen for the first time in a long time. Tanjiro seeks for a means to turn Nezuko back into a human in Demon Slayer Season 2, which promises to escalate the stakes. Each week, when and where can fans watch Demon Slayer Season 2 new episodes?
What is ‘Demon Slayer’ Season 2 about?
The second season of Demon Slayer will be split into two parts, each covering an arc from Koyoharu Gotouge’s manga series. The first seven episodes will re-adapt the Mugen Train Arc, which was covered in the recent film, and will air throughout the Fall 2021 anime season.
While some of the content will undoubtedly overlap, the new edition of the arc will supposedly include one fresh episode for fans. The updated Mugen Train Arc will also feature new sequences, soundtrack, and opening and closing animation, according to Crunchyroll. Even if the events don’t alter, it sounds like it’s worth seeing, even if you’ve already seen the movie.
On December 5, the anime will embark on a brand-new adventure, delving into the Entertainment District Arc of the manga. Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu will be whisked away to Yoshiwara by the Sound Hashira. The group will be charged with figuring out what’s happening to the ladies who have been disappearing in the neighbourhood.
When do new episodes of ‘Demon Slayer’ arrive each week?
Season 2 of Demon Slayer promises even more action and excitement from the anime’s main cast. If the Mugen Train movie is any indication, the stakes will be raised as well. Although the series has always been grim, recent developments have shown that no one is safe. The next episodes may emphasise that point once more.
Fans, understandably, will not want to miss what happens next. So, how will they be able to watch Demon Slayer every week?
New episodes of Demon Slayer arrive every Sunday in the U.S., starting on Oct. 10. Their release time will depend on which region you’re in. Per Dual Shockers, here’s when to expect them in the following time zones:
- Pacific Time: 8:45 a.m.
- Central Time: 10:45 a.m.
- Eastern Time: 11:45 a.m.
