Demon Slayer continues to take the world by storm since premiering in 2019. Adapted from Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer manga and animated beautifully by ufotable, it’s become one of the best anime of recent years.

Season 4 is the shortest season of the anime with only eight episodes. Like most anime series, the fourth season will be released one episode per week.

The Demon Slayer Season 4 episode schedule is as follows:

  • Episode 1: May 12, 2024

The fourth season of the fan-favorite anime series will be an important one in spite of not having many exciting fights. The Hashira Training Arc focuses on the training and development of the characters and is one of the last Demon Slayer arcs.

The season will have Gyomei Himejima, the strongest demon slayer alive, as well as Giyu, Shinobu, Mitsuru, Sanemi, Obanai, Muichiro, and Uzui.

How many episodes are in Demon Slayer Season 4?

Demon Slayer Season 4 has 8 episodes. This was heavily rumored before the premiere, and was confiemd before the finale in June.

Unlike the previous seasons, Tanjiro will not get to fight any Upper Moons in Season 4. However, there will be plenty of important events going around. For starters, the season acts like a prologue to the following Final Battle Arc where the demon slayers will finally face Muzan and the rest of the Upper Moons.

The season will also reveal Giyu Tomioka’s past as well as give viewers a brief glimpse into what Gyomei Himejima, the current strongest demon slayer, is capable of. Tengen Uzui and Rengoku’s father Shinjuro will also join the current Hashira to train the demon slayers.

However, Tanjiro and Nezuko will have to spend this season apart. While Tanjiro will be busy training under the Hashira, Nezuko will spend her time with Urokodaki after gaining immunity to the sunlight and taking Tamayo’s medicine. So, throughout the rumored eight Demon Slayer episodes, viewers won’t get a Kamado siblings reunion just yet.

With the Demon Slayer Season 4 episode schedule now memorized, there’s no missing any episode of the season. For more, check out Tanjiro’s Hanafuda earrings or how old Nezuko is or maybe even how Muzan became a demon.
