Demon Slayer Season 3 Release Date Europe: The highly anticipated Demon Slayer Season 3 is set to release on Sunday, April 9, 2023. Crunchyroll has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to the Swordsmith Village Arc anime in Europe and America. The platform will simulcast new episodes each week in every region it’s available, with the first episode airing at 11:15 pm JST on April 9, 2023.

About the Anime
Demon Slayer Season 3 adapts the Swordsmith Village Arc and features a one-hour season premiere. The arc takes place shortly after the events of the Entertainment District Arc from Season 2. Tanjiro visits a village of swordsmiths to repair his damaged sword and encounters a formidable enemy who can split into four separate bodies and regenerate almost immediately.
Episode Count and Future Seasons
While an official episode count has not been revealed, the Swordsmith Village Arc comprises 30 chapters in the manga, and the similar-sized Entertainment District Arc took 11 episodes to adapt. It is expected that Season 3 will have a similar episode count, if not longer. A fourth season has not been officially confirmed, but with more source material available and the anime’s popularity, it seems highly likely.
