DEMON SLAYER RECAP
The first season came out in April 2019 and ran till September of that year. The next season mostly won’t come out before 2021. This delay is caused due to the upcoming Demons Slayer film Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Infinity Train Arc, this year.
The development of the second is yet to start. That means we can either get it as early as next year or a couple of years may go by before the project sees the light of the day.
