The standard run-time for most Demon Slayer episodes is 20 to 30 minutes long. Season 2’s premiere episode was 46 minutes, and the Season 3 premiere episode was 49 minutes.

While the final episode is set to be the longest in the anime, Season 3 will also be the shortest of the series.

Season 1 had 26 episodes running from October 13, 2019, to May 3, 2020. The first season included six arcs that were adapted from the manga.

Meanwhile, Season 2 had 18 episodes that were split into two arcs. The first, the Mugen Train Arc, was also the franchise’s first movie, which later comprised seven episodes released from October 10 to November 28 in 2021. Season 2’s second arc, the Entertainment District Arc, totaled 11 episodes from December 5, 2021, to February 13, 2022.

Demon Slayer’s current third season will only have 11 episodes and cover a single arc, with the entire season running from April 9 to June 18 this year.

The Swordsmith Village Arc centers around the Demon Slayer Corp and two members from the Twelve Demon Moons.
