Demon Slayer Season 3 Plot
The third season features the Swordsmith Village Arc. It will probably cover chapters 100 to 127 of the original manga series. The Entertainment District Arc also features a similar range, from 77 to 99. Hence, it is likely that just like it, Season 3 will also have twelve episodes.
Based on the manga, the new season will feature Tanjiro traveling to the Swordsmith Village to find a new weapon. This village is the home of a powerful ancient weapon. But getting this powerful weapon isn’t as easy as it sounds! The plot will include the Love and Mist Hashiras. It may even feature a couple of Upper Rank demons.
The Entertainment District’s ending also gave us hints about what will happen next. We see Tengen alive and kicking. He wants his Hashira replacement to be Tanjiro. From there, these powerful demon slayers can return to fighting their ultimate enemy, Muzan Kibutsuji.

Season 3 Spoilers
We’ve mentioned some of the spoilers for Demon Slayer Season 3 below! Hence, proceed cautiously and skip this section if you don’t want to know what happens in the currently streaming Demon Slayer Season 3 episode 1.
Season 3 will feature the Infinity Castle as Muzan Kibutsuji summons Akaza, an upper rank demon, and other top Kizuki to discuss Gyutaro’s death. (Recap: Tanjiro defeats the sibling demons Gyutaro and Daki at the end of the previous season.)
Moreover, we also get to meet Akaza’s rivals and the top-ranking Kizuki Kokushibo. Then, we see Tanjiro having a vivid dream featuring a man that strongly resembles Kokushibo. The man is talking with Tanjiro’s father about the definition of a fulfilling life.
After this, we get to catch up with the whole gang. We find out that Tanjiro’s coma lasted two months while Zenitsu healed quickly and was given a mission.
Once he is awake, Tanjiro finds that his sword is still damaged. The person who forged it, Master Hagenezuka, has sent him several angry letters saying that he won’t fix it. However, this won’t cut it for Tanjiro, and he decides to personally go to the Swordsmith Village to repair his marvelous sword.
So, Tanjiro goes to the Swordsmith village but finds out that Hagenezuka is missing, along with Genyu Shinazugawa and Love Hashira Kanroji.
The final scenes of the premiere feature Kanroji informing Tanjiro about rumors of a powerful weapon hidden in the village. So, Tanjiro begins his hunt for it.
Additionally, just before the premiere ends, Tanjiro comes across Mist Hashira Tokito arguing with someone from the village. The situation seems weird as we can see the presence of a man who strongly resembles the demon Kokushibo.
