The second season of Kimetsu No Yaiba, or Demon Slayer, will follow the storyline of the Entertainment District arc of the manga series. It follows the journey of Tanjiro, Inosuke, and Zenitsu, who help the Sound Pillar Tengen Uzui search for his missing women. Apparently his wives disappeared as they investigated rumors of demons in the neighborhood.
The sequel will again be produced by animation studio Ufotable, which produced both the first season of Demon Slayer and its arcade film Mugen Train. It looks like an electrifying battle will ensue, as the Demon Slayers take on the high-ranking demon Six Daki, voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro.
On top of that, there will also be a seven-episode Mugen Train arc anime series, which premieres in Japan on October 10.

The all-new first episode will begin the series from the perspective of the pillar of flame Kyojuro Rengoku, as he walks towards Mugen’s train. The remaining episodes will include a new cut from the Mugen Train movie, with added scenes and new background music.
The Mugen Train arc series opening song, Akeboshi, and the ending song Shirogane will once again be sung by LiSA, known for the Demon Slayer season one opening song, Gurenge, and the film’s theme song. Mugen Train, Homura. As for the Arc Entertainment District series, Aimer will be singing both the opening song Zankyosanka and the ending song Asa Ga Kuru.
The Mugen Train and Entertainment District episodes will eventually be available on streaming sites, including Netflix, after they air on Japanese TV channels.
