The first season of Demon Slayer is now available to stream on Netflix. Then the movie, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will follow and take up the events that happened in the first season. After that we will watch the events after the movie in season 2. So this means that to understand the chronological order of the anime, the movie should come before the second season. Naturally, fans are asking whether we are going to see Demon Slayer: Mugen Train on Netflix.
Unfortunately, Demon Slayer: Kietsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train is not available to watch on the popular streaming platform. We also do not have any info regarding its release date on Netflix. But as mentioned earlier, it should arrive sometime in 2022 before the second season. So that the titles can be streamed in order.
When is Demon Slayer season 2 coming to Netflix?
The fans of the hit anime should not worry more as the second season will definitely land this year. Though unfortunately, Netflix will probably take some more time as the streaming platform usually waits a bit more before releasing anime on its library. This situation is called Netflix Jail because the service does not prefer simulcasting. This results in a huge time gap and also encourages the subscribers to use other services or illegally obtain the anime.
On the other hand, we know that the second season is scheduled to release in October 2021. The shounen anime will start its run in Japan this year. Even though a couple of streaming services will simulcast the series, Netflix will probably wait and release Demon Slayer season 2 sometime in 2022.
