People are understandably hyped up for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 now that it has been confirmed that the anime will adapt the Swordsmith Village arc. But is it possible that the upcoming third season will follow more than just one major story arc from the manga? There is a huge possibility that the new season will be split into two cours and the second one will be about the next story arc!
Fans were delighted when Demon Slayer Season 3 was immediately announced as soon as the second season concluded. In addition to dropping the key visual featuring Muichiro Tokito and Mitsuri Kanroji, the announcement confirmed that the third season will be about the Swordsmith Village arc.
This is great news on its own but fans also wondered about the details of Demon Slayer Season 3. For instance, people wanted to know how many episodes will be in the third season. It is believed that the upcoming season could feature more episodes than the Entertainment District arc, which only had 11 episodes (the second season had 18 episodes in total including the Mugen Train arc). If this is so, there is hope that Season 3 will be as long as the 26-episode first season.
But what will happen in Demon Slayer Season 3 if it extends beyond the Swordsmith Village arc? There is a possibility that we could also see the Hashira Training arc which is the tenth story arc in the manga. If this happens, it could be followed in the second cour of the third season.
For now, details like the Demon Slayer Season 3 episode count have not yet been revealed. However, there is a huge chance we'll get an update in the next few months. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
