Demon Slayer Season 4 Trailer
As of now, no trailer for the fourth season of the anime has been released. Based on the historical pattern of Studio Ufotable’s anime, we can speculate that the first trailer of the fourth season might get announced soon after the third season finishes airing.
Demon Slayer Story
In Demon Slayer, Tanjiro, is a humble son and brother who sells coal to support his family. One day, after returning from one such coal run, Tanjiro finds out that his whole family was massacred by Kibutsuji Muzan, the king of all demons. Muzan had spared one of Tanjiro’s sisters Nezuko but turned her into a demon.

Tanjiro is then sent on a first mission where he meets his future best buddies, Zenitsu and Inouske with whom he will travel throughout the whole series. On the mission, Tanjiro faces a demon who can control all the dimensions of the room and rotate the whole room at will.

In Season Four, we can expect the “Hashira Training” arc to be animated as the first half and the start of the “Invasion of the Infinity Castle” arc to be animated. In the Hashira training arc, we will see the Hashiras training themselves and the Demon Slayer Corps till they can manifest “The Mark”. In the second part, we will see the Demon Slayer Corps invading the Infinity Castle to finally end this century-long battle between demons and humans.
Demon Slayer Season 4 Expectations
After season 3 (Demon Slayer: The Swordsmith Village Arc) finishes, season 4 might be announced and it might be divided into two parts, one which deals with the Hashira Training Arc and the second might act as the introduction of the Infinity Castle Arc.
Which Studio Is Making Demon Slayer Season 4?
With Studio Ufotable heading the production for the first three seasons of the anime, expect Ufotbale to return to produce the fourth season too. Demon Slayer has proved to be Ufotable’s best anime yet, so letting it go to another studio could prove to be quite a big mistake financially.
Where Will Demon Slayer Season 4 Be Aired?
The first two seasons of Demon Slayer are already available on Crunchyroll, with the third season also being simulcast on it currently. The fourth season of the anime will also be simulcasted on Crunchyroll.

With Netflix also acquiring the streaming right to the Demon Slayer franchise, Season 4 will also simulcast on it.
Considering the Swordsmith Village Arc wraps around 11 episodes or more, the release date of Demon Slayer Season 4 can be expected to be scheduled later this year around August 2024 and October 2024 on Netflix.
After a successful first season, a blockbuster Demon Slayer movie, and another highly booming second season, Studio Ufotable had no reason to not animate the story further. With the third season covering the Swordsmith Village Arc, the fourth season will animate the second last arc in the story and might animate a small part of the last arc.
Yes, as of now there has been no confirmed release date but we can expect an announcement after the third season finishes.
No, (Spoiler Alert!) Throughout the series, Tanjiro does not get a chance to become a Hashira but his strength is definitely considered to be close to one.
15 years after the third episode of the anime, Tanjiro’s age isn’t revealed, so we can only rely on official sources.
Kibutsuji Muzan would be the main villain for the fourth season of Demon slayer, where the Demon Slayer Corp might raid the “Infinity Castle”.
