Ufotable has finally announced the release date for "Demon Slayer" season 2, and fans may have mixed feelings about the show's direction.

Ufotable revealed season 2 would start on October 10, re-adapting the "Mugen Train" film. It would be followed by the subsequent arc, the Entertainment District Arc, on December 5, according to Crunchyroll.

Despite the detour, fans are in for a treat as the Entertainment District Arc will kick off with a special one-hour broadcast on December 5.

The episodes will air on Fuji TV every Sunday at 11:15 p.m. in Japan. Producers have yet to release international release dates.

Only Funimation has confirmed "Demon Slayer" season 2 will be simulcast on their platform as of writing.

Funimation also includes the 7-episode "Mugen Train" arc as part of season 2 for now. But the never-before-seen content will start in December once it is finished.

As with season 1, Crunchyroll and Hulu are expected to air the series, but this has yet to be verified.

The second season will not be available on other platforms like Amazon Prime or Toonami until after the first season has done airing.

In the Entertainment District arc, Tanjiro, Inosuke and Zenitsu travel to Yoshiwara with the Sound Hashira (Tengen Uzui) to investigate rumors of demons.

"Demon Slayer" Season 2 will include 70 new scenes, episode previews, open and ending animation, theme songs, and music tracks. The quantity seems to be quite overwhelming. Still, it makes sense, as Mugen Train is just under two hours long, which translates to six 20-minute episodes. But this run will be seven. That appears to be a large amount of new footage.

Another interesting note from Forbes is that CyberConnect2 will launch a new Demon Slayer fighting game on Oct. 15 with animation close to the original series. That will be available on all platforms, including the PS5 and Xbox Series X and the PC. According to reports, the full title is worth $60.

There's a lot more for fans to look forward to about "Demon Slayer" season 2. Some are even expecting more information, including new trailers, reports added.
