What the Demon Slayer episode hiatus could mean for season 2's Entertainment District Arc release

Episode 4 will be delayed by a week.


On Tuesday, the official Demon Slayer Twitter account announced that episode 4 of the Mugen Train Arc will be delayed by a week because of a special election in Japan. Episode 4 has officially been pushed back from Oct. 31 to Nov. 7.

Based on the original show schedule, we were supposed to have a one-week hiatus between the Mugen Train Arc and the Entertainment District Arc -- the hiatus week was supposed to be the week starting Nov. 28. We haven't heard official word on this, but it could mean that the Entertainment District Arc would be pushed back a week -- beginning on Dec. 12 rather than Dec. 5 as originally planned -- if Ufotable wanted to still have a gap week between the two arcs. Stay tuned.
