Demon Slayer season 3, episode 9 is likely going to bring Muichiro's big battle to a close. We might (finally) see the Love Hashira turn up too. So, with just a few episodes left, it's well worth getting ahead of the game and watching the new Swordsmith Village arc episode the minute it drops.

Don't worry, we can help with that. Below, we've got the Demon Slayer season 3, episode 9 release date and times in the US and UK. We've also got talk of English dubs.

Demon Slayer season 3 release schedule: how many episodes are there?

As of writing, we still don't know exactly how many episodes there will be of Demon Slayer season 3. However, we have a pretty good idea of the season length. 

The previous full season, Entertainment District, covered chapters 70-99 in the manga source material and lasted for 11 episodes. The Swordsmith Village arc will cover chapters 100-127. On that evidence, we can expect another 11 or 12-episode season and not a bumper 26-episode run like the first season was.

The first eight Demon Slayer season 3 episodes have been released. The rest of the schedule could look like this.
