If this rumor does turn out to be true, then we’ll likely see the second season of the Demon Slayer anime sometime in 2021. While an early 2021 release is welcome, it’s more likely that the series will release in the second half of next year.
The first season of Demon Slayer aired in April 2019, and it became a massive hit, both in Japan and overseas. The anime is based on the Demon Slayer manga series which ran from February 2016 to May 2020 on Weekly Shonen Jump.
In related news, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train is getting a general release in Philippine cinemas in February 2021.
