The new season, like the previous ones, has been made at ufotable. Haruo Sotozaki is helming the project as the director.

The very first episode of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba came out in April 2019 and has continued to be a massive success. Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train was the biggest movie of the year globally in 2020.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc is additionally being dubbed in French, German, Hindi, Latin American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese.

Crunchyroll gave this description for the fan-favorite anime:

“It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.

Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a ‘demon slayer’ so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.”
