Demon Slayer Season 2 should have been released by now if it wasn’t for the COVID-19 pandemic that delayed the anime series. But at the same time, the success of the Mugen Train movie will make sure that the makers come out with a new season as soon as possible. Fans who have watched the movie want to see what happens next and Demon Slayer Season 2 holds the answer to that question.

There are some mixed rumors which say that Demon Slayer is releasing a sequel this year and it is obviously related to the anime season and not the movie. Here are more updates on Demon Slayer Season 2 release date, trailer, manga spoilers and Mugen Train movie connection.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date and Production Updates
Demon Slayer Season 2 release date is set as April 2021 as per some of the reports. There are some insider talks that the Demon Slayer sequel is under production and it will be out in the next 3-4 months. While it is not clear whether the Japanese leakers are talking about the movie sequel or anime sequel, we will still assume it is about Demon Slayer Season 2 as the Mugen Train sequel doesn’t even make any sense at this point.
It was earlier reported that the anime team will start production on the second season once they are done with the Infinity Train movie, which means it has started by now. Demon Slayer Season 2 trailer should come out around February 2021 and that will also confirm the anime premiere date.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Spoilers, Manga Connection and Mugen Train Movie
Demon Slayer Season 2 spoilers will be based on the manga series and hence we will not discuss and spoil it for the anime-only fans. The anime storyline will directly continue after the events of the Mugen Train movie and take the plot forward. Since the Mugen Train movie is based on manga chapters 54 to 69, it is obvious that Demon Slayer Season 2 will adapt from Chapter 70 and more.
