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.
