Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc will soon be on its way, with the new opening theme being revealed!

It was recently confirmed that Mugen by My First Story x Hyde will be the soundtrack to the next season.

The wildly popular anime follows a young Japanese boy named Tanjiro, who's set on revenge against the demons that killed his family.

Since it first aired in 2019, Demon Slayer has had positive reviews from fans and critics alike, with season 3 leaving us on quite the cliffhanger.

Demon Slayer season 4 release date speculation

Demon Slayer season 4, titled Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc, will be released in spring 2024, according to a teaser from distributor Aniplex.

There's no official release date just yet, but previous seasons of Demon Slayer have premiered in April - which seems like a likely release month for season 4, too.

However, fans who want a sneak peek of the new season can buy tickets to a special screening event as part of a world tour, which will show the last scenes of season 3 (the Swordsmith Village arc) and a first look at season 4.

Demon Slayer season 4 cast: Who could return?

We're expecting the following cast members to reprise their roles for season 4:

Japanese cast:

  • Tanjiro Kamado – Natsuki Hanae
  • Nezuko Kamado – Akari Kitô
  • Inosuke Hashibira – Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
  • Zenitsu Agatsuma – Hiro Shimono
  • Muzan Kibutsuji – Toshihiko Seki
  • Kagaya Ubuyashiki – Toshiyuki Morikawa
  • Giyu Tomioka – Takahiro Sakurai
  • Mitsuri Kanroji – Kana Hanazawa
  • Muichiro Tokito – Kengo Kawanishi

English cast:

  • Tanjiro Kamado – Zach Aguilar
  • Nezuko Kamado – Abby Trott
  • Inosuke Hashibira – Bryce Papenbrook
  • Zenitsu Agatsuma – Aleks Le
  • Muzan Kibutsuji – Greg Chun
  • Kagaya Ubuyashiki – Matt Mercer
  • Giyu Tomioka – Johnny Yong Bosch
  • Mitsuri Kanroji – Kira Buckland
  • Muichiro Tokito – Griffin Burns

How many episodes could there be in Demon Slayer season 4?

We're expecting 11 episodes in Demon Slayer season 4, but this has not been confirmed.

Previous seasons have followed an 11-episode arc, so it would make sense if season 4 did the same.

What could the plot of Demon Slayer season 4 be?

Season 4 will adapt the Hashira Training Arc, which is exactly what it sounds like - Tanjiro goes to train with some of the strongest Hashira in the hopes of becoming one himself.

We can certainly expect to meet the Stone Hashira, Gyomei Himejima, who forms a crucial part of Tanjiro's training.

Meanwhile, the demon king Muzan Kibutsuji and the three remaining Kizuki members – Akaza, Doma and Kokushibo - begin their search for Nezuko and the Ubuyashiki family.

However, the Hashira Arc manga is a lot shorter than others that have been adapted, at only nine chapters long. This leaves a lot of room for changes to be made in the series and elements to be added.
