Demon Slayer Season 2 release date could get delayed as the anime series won’t come out this summer. The anime show is based on the manga series “Kimetsu no Yaiba” and follows the life of Tanjiro who wants to become a demon slayer and save her sister Nezuko who has turned into a half-demon.
The first season of the anime series was very popular and fans are looking forward to the second season. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 release date is postponed as there is a new Demon Slayer: Infinity Train movie coming out and here are more details on the same.
Demon Slayer Infinity Train Movie and Anime Season 2 Connection
Demon Slayer: Infinity Train is the upcoming movie produced by Ufotable studios which is the same animation studio involved in the anime series. It is one of the main reasons why the premiere date of the second anime installment has been pushed back. Most of the animators are busy working on the “Infinity Train” movie which was originally slated to come out this Summer in Japan.

But with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it is reported that Demon Slayer: Infinity Train movie will now release in the fall of 2020 in the theaters, which is now confirmed as October 16, 2020 as per the new trailer. For those who don’t know, the movie will act as a bridge between season 1 and season 2 of the Demon Slayer anime series and continue the story forward from where it last left.
Demon Slayer Season 2 Release Date
Demon Slayer Season 2 release date is not confirmed yet but one thing is sure that it won’t come out before October 16 as the Infinity Train movie releases on that. It also doesn’t mean that the second installment of the anime series will come out just next week after the movie premiere as theatrical releases almost stay up to two months. Hence, the earliest possible release date for “Demon Slayer” Season 2 is January 2021 which gives the creators enough time to work on the episodes.
