We already know that Demon Slayer Season 2 is happening later this year, thanks to the anime's new trailer. But when exactly is the release date? There's a possibility that Kimetsu no Yaiba – Yukaku-hen will premiere a little earlier than expected.

The new trailer for Demon Slayer Season 2 has been dropped and it confirms that the series will be back in 2021. Let's break down what happens in the trailer and discuss when the second season will be released.

What Happens in the Demon Slayer Season 2 Trailer?

The trailer for Demon Slayer Season 2 has been released by Anime Factory. It offers a glimpse at what happened after the events in the sequel film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train.

The second season will be titled Kimetsu no Yaiba – Yukaku-hen and is set to follow the Entertainment District Arc in the manga. This is confirmed in the trailer that brings viewers to the Yoshiwara Red-Light district where "the lust and charms of men and women swirl in a storm of love and hate." Sounds like a charming locale.

There's not much to see in the trailer for the anime except it does feature a mysterious woman who could play a major role in Demon Slayer Season 2. With that in mind, expect plenty of action and a riveting storyline this year.

Although the trailer confirms that Kimetsu no Yaiba – Yukaku-hen will premiere in 2021, there is no release window given. Nevertheless, there are speculations that the second season will be released within the next two months.

Fans believe that Demon Slayer Season 2 will premiere sometime in April or May. However, there is a huge chance that the new season will be released closer to October. After all, the first season premiered in October 2019 and it would make sense for the follow-up to be released in the same period.

Demon Slayer Season 2 is expected to air on Toonami in the US and on Netflix internationally.
