Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 already kicked-off with a new version of the Mugen Train Arc from the movie, but as recently reported, the series is headed towards a break as its October 31st episode has been delayed. This means that the new episode that would have aired is now set to debut on November 7, so fans are wondering if this delay will affect the release of the Entertainment District Arc this December.

Thankfully, Ufotable, the studio behind the Demon Slayer anime series, was prepared for this shift. The delay has not affected the release of the new arc's premiere. The studio hasn't announced any changes to the premiere date of the Entertainment District arc despite the delay.

It turns out that the team behind the anime already set a one-week break in its original schedule, giving the show enough room just case a delay like this comes, and now it's happening. So this means that the Entertainment District Arc will still premiere as scheduled, so fans don't have to worry about the highly-anticipated arc.
