Fans should also note that Demon Slayer: Infinity Train movie is coming out on October 16, 2020, and there is no way the anime would come out before that. There are reports that Demon Slayer Season 2 release date is pushed back to early 2021 or it could even take till Summer 2021 for the anime to premiere.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Spoilers and Infinity Train Connection
Demon Slayer Season 2 story will not start directly after the first season ended as the Infinity Train movie has been set up for that. Tanjiro and the other demon slayer corps have boarded the Infinity Train to help out the Fire Pillar Kyojuru to stop the demons from killing people on a train.
Demon Slayer: Infinity Train movie will act as a bridge between the first and the second season of the anime series. Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 spoilers suggest that it will cover the manga storyline from Chapter 108 onwards and introduce the other Pillars and Muzan as the main villain.
