As far as ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ season 4 is concerned, we have a piece of good news for the fans. Just after the premiere of the season 3 finale, the fourth installment of the series was officially announced to be in production. A teaser for the same was also released on Twitter. It has now been officially confirmed that the next season will adopt the Hashira Training Arc.
Interestingly, the next arc in Koyoharu Gotouge’s Japanese manga series only has nine chapters which are obviously not enough for an entire season. Therefore, there is a good chance that the second half of the upcoming installment will potentially cover a few chapters of the Infinity Castle arc. Fans can expect to see some of the higher-ranked Hashiras in action against Muzan and his Upper-Rank demons.
Since the production for the upcoming installment has already begun, fans will not have to wait too long for the next season. Ufotable has been very consistent and rarely has any delays. Since Demon Slayer is their most popular show, it goes without saying that its production will be a top priority for them. Taking all the aforementioned factors into consideration, it’s safe to say that ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’ season 4 will most likely premiere sometime in the Spring 2024 anime season.
