Demon Slayer spoilers follow.
Demon Slayer season four has officially received a release window and will kick off with an extra-long first episode.
Anime distributor Aniplex confirmed the show will return in Spring 2024, earlier than fans predicted.
The series will also hold special screenings worldwide in February, allowing fans to see the final episode of Demon Slayer season three and the hour-long season four premiere in select cinemas, according to Anime News Network.
The screenings will be held in over 140 countries, in a similar way to the launch of the show's third season and the Swordsmith Village Arc, and current listings include:
Tokyo - February 2-3
New York - February 10
Seoul - February 11
Mexico City and Singapore - February 17
Jakarta - February 18
Paris and Taipei - February 24
London and Hong Kong - February 25
To celebrate the return of the hit series, a special livestream for the franchise will also begin on February 23, at 2 pm UK time.
Following the cliff-hanging ending of season three — which featured a memorable shot of the Demon Slayer Corps' Hashira lineup and the Stone Hashira — a fourth season was shortly announced.
Demon Slayer season four is set to adapt the manga's Hashira Training arc, which sees Tanjiro completing his training to become a Hashira.
"Tanjiro goes to see the Stone Hashira, Himejima, who intends to prepare him for the battles to come. The training to become a Hashira — a high-ranking member of the Demon Slayer Corps — is intense and demanding. Earning Himejima's approval seems impossible, but Tanjiro won't give up! Meanwhile, the demon lord Muzan continues to search for the location of Nezuko and Ubuyashiki," reads the synopsis of the original series.
The Hashira Training arc is only nine chapters long, meaning fans could see aspects of the Infinity Castle arc included before season five.
Demon Slayer is available to watch on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
