Season 3 of Demon Slayer has been announced, and even at this early stage, there is a surprising amount of information to be found online.
We already know who will feature in the new season, as well as which chapters of the manga will be adapted for the show. But it gets better: Demon Slayer season 3 is titled “Swordsmith Village” to go along with the first teaser trailer, which is now available online.
Even if that doesn’t sound particularly interesting, it’s the next step in broadening the scope of the Demon Slayer Corps and its world, as well as providing more opportunities for Tanjiro to develop and, yes, some truly spectacular fight scenes.

Demon Slayer Season 3: Release Date Speculation for the Swordsmith Village Arc
There is currently no official release date for Demon Slayer season 3, however, we may anticipate it to be released in 2023. We had thought that Fall 2022 would be a distinct possibility, but in the COVID age, completing that task that quickly would be very hard to accomplish. Assuming this is the case, a release in the Spring of 2023 (about April 2023) or the Fall of 2023 (September-October 2023) might all be on the table. According to season 2, We initially expected the announcement to arrive on February 20
Having said that, Ufotable, the animation company responsible for the series, is known for maintaining a high level of consistency in their work. Demon Slayer premiered in the fall of 2019, while the Mugen Train film will be released in Japan in the fall of 2020. The television adaptation of Demon Slayer’s Mugen Train recap arc premiered in the fall of 2021. Demon Slayer’s streak of consecutive Fall debuts may come to an end, but if anyone can accomplish the unthinkable, it’s Ufotable.
The Swordsmith Village arc is technically the third season of Demon Slayer. Don’t worry, we’re not going to give anything away about the source material here, but we believe it will span chapters 100-127 of the manga. The Entertainment District Arc spanned a similar period from 70 to 99, indicating that this season will most likely consist of 12 episodes, give or take a few.
What is the main arc for Demon Slayer season 3?
In most cases, unless there are significant changes, it should include Tanjiro traveling to Swordsmith Village to obtain a new weapon. As luck would have it, the community is home to an old weapon that can be used to defend itself. Nevertheless, the plot, which involves both Love and Mist Hashriras and perhaps one or two demonic entities, isn’t quite that clear.
More broadly, the show’s conclusion in the Entertainment District provided a hint as to the direction it will most likely take after Demon Slayer season 3. Tengen has been removed from the board, yet he is still alive and well. He informed Iguro that Tanjiro was the most likely candidate to take over as Hashira’s replacement. Finally, the Demon Slayers will be able to return fire on Muzan Kibutsuji, their ultimate prey, and ultimate adversary.
The Swordsmith Village Arc is now the third season of Demon Slayer. Although we won’t go into detail about the manga’s chapters 100-127, be assured that we won’t reveal anything about the show’s plot. With a comparable age range (70-99) as Entertainment District Arc, a 12-episode season is likely, give or take a few episodes.
Tanjiro should visit the Swordsmith Village to obtain a new sword unless anything unexpected happens. Fortunately, the community is home to a long-lost artifact. The story that involves the Love and Mist Hashiras, as well as perhaps a demon or two, is far from straightforward.
Additionally, the show’s conclusion in the Entertainment District gave us a hint as to where we might expect things to go from here after season 3. Tengen is no longer on the board, but he is very much alive and well. He revealed to Iguro that Tanjiro would be a potential replacement for Hahira. They’ll be able to finally wreak their revenge on Muzan Kibutsuji from there.
In the Third Season of Demon Slayer, Who Are the Characters and Demons That Have Been Introduced?
There will be a Swordsmith Village arc cast of Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae), Zenitsu (Hiro Shimono), Inosuke (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), and Nezuko.
The Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, and the Love Hashira, Matsuri Kanji, join them in this episode. Expect to see more of the Hashiras and members of the Twelve Upper Moons/Twelve Kibuki in future seasons.
It will be directed by Haruo Satozaki, with character design handled by Akira Matsushima.
The first Swordsmith Village teaser for the third season of Demon Slayer has been released.
Unfortunately, the first trailer for the third season of Demon Slayer is quite short and doesn’t give us any information at all.
The new Swordsmith Village Arc has been teased with merely some brief key art of the Love and Mist Hashira’s designs, as is anime’s way. We may anticipate a full trailer in the summer of 2022, along with additional teasers and TV advertisements in the weeks leading up to the film’s debut. The 40-second teaser clip is embedded above for your viewing pleasure.
