Will there be a Demon Slayer Season 5

Demon Slayer Season 3 ended with a lot of tears, blood, and smiles. But, will there be a Demon Slayer Season 5 and will it air anytime soon? To answer this question, we must first understand the course of Demon Slayer Season 4 and the announcements related to it. From there on, we shall proceed into the discourse which sets the tone for Demon Slayer Season 5.

Will there be a Demon Slayer Season 4?

Demon Slayer Season 3 ended with a domesticated tone, where the Demon Slayers won the battle against Upper Moon Five Gyokko and Upper Moon Four Hantengu, also portraying at the same time how Nezuko has the ability to withstand the sun. The cinematic creation was a masterpiece on its own and Ufotable has distinguished itself from the rest of Shounen’s creators.

  • That being said, there are two remaining arcs in the manga, which would possibly come out in two different seasons for the anime.
  • The first would be the Hashira Training Arc, for which announcements and teasers have already been released.
  • The final arc would be the Infinity Castle Arc, which is when the Demon Slayers would finally face Muzan Kibutsuji.

Demon Slayer Season 4 will cover the manga’s Hashira Training Arc and it will be a treat to watch all of the Hashiras coming together to train the younger Demon Slayers. Moreover, it will be a season that has limited chapters in the manga, and we can expect Demon Slayer Season 4 to be of the same length as the Swordsmith Village Arc.

Will there be a Demon Slayer Season 5 in the making?

The possible course for Demon Slayer Season 5 can only be set after the release of Demon Slayer Season 4. Season 4 would be the Hashira Training Arc. The Hashira Training Arc plays out in chapters 128-136 of the original manga series, and it is followed by the Infinity Castle Arc (most likely the Season 5 adaptation) from chapters 137-183.

  • The Infinity Castle Arc will focus on the battle with Muzan Kibutsuji.
  • We saw in the finale of Demon Slayer Season 3 that Muzan gains knowledge about Nezuko’s extraordinary ability to withstand the sun as a demon. He plans to exterminate her and consume her flesh, to attain his dream of becoming a ‘perfect being’.
  • But before that, the Hashira Training Arc, i.e. Demon Slayer Season 4, will focus on setting the course for the final battle and we will get a glimpse of all the Hashiras in action!

What will be the story of Demon Slayer Season 5?

The Demon Slayer Season 5 is primarily the Infinity Castle Arc, which will most likely be released in two cours. This is due to the extensive chapters and the story which has to be covered from the manga.

  • The story of Demon Slayer Season 5 begins with the Demon Slayers plunging into the Infinity Castle to defeat Muzan. The fights engage and the Demon Slayers are directed to keep fighting with Muzan until dawn breaks.
  • It is one of the longest battles and it has been written down in several chapters. During the course of this battle, several demon slayers are slain by Muzan and this battle becomes an interesting one to follow.


The Demon Slayer franchise is yet to release a lot of pending episodes and seasons, and these releases will critically go through the remaining arcs. Demon Slayer Season 5 will however most likely end the franchise with the closure presented through Muzan’s death. But the events which will lead to this battle will be interesting to watch and follow!
