The first trailer for Demon Slayer season 2 is out. The new show will adapt the Entertainment District Arc and it will premiere later this year.
The trailer for Demon Slayer season 2 is out, and it hints toward a potential release date for the upcoming manga adaptation. Based on Koyoharu Gotouge's manga series of the same name, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba centers on Tanjiro Kamado's life, a teenager who seeks to become a demon executioner after a demon kills his family and his sister is transformed into one herself. The show debuted in the United States in July 2019, and it grew to become a global phenomenon after it was added to Netflix. After season 1 ended, the anime was followed by a sequel film, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train, which continues to break box-office records in Japan. On Sunday, the show's second season was officially confirmed, and now a trailer has been released for it as well.
In the clip shared by Anime Factory, viewers can obtain a glimpse of what happens after the events of the blockbuster sequel film. As per the trailer, which previews the 'Entertainment District Arc,' Demon Slayer season 2 is set in the Yoshiwara red-light district, where 'men, women, bluff, desire and love' swirl. Not many plot details have been teased, but it has been confirmed that the new show will debut sometime this year. The trailer mostly includes characters from the freshman run, although a new sinister-looking woman was also seen, who is probably an important figure in the district. See the trailer for Demon Slayer season 2 below.
Since the trailer confirms a 2021 release, viewers can expect Demon Slayer season 2 to drop on Netflix during the latter half of the year, even if the show launches in Japan earlier. Season 1 was available to stream on Netflix in fall 2019, so it makes sense for the service to set a two-year gap between the iterations. Visibly, season 2 will be quite different from the previous one. Season 1 was mostly set in the wild, but in season 2, the characters have moved closer to urban areas. Additionally, the mysterious woman shown in the teaser will likely serve as the new villain in Demon Slayer season 2. But to know whether she is a demon or not, fans will have to wait for more substantial previews and trailers.
