This new outing follows the To the Hashira Training arc, with a movie version of the opening instalment having already been released earlier this year, and the first episode now available to stream.

Tanjiro voice actor Natsuki Hanae spoke with exclusively earlier this year and teased that fans will see "a lot more training and action" in the new season and that fans will be able to "get behind their favourite characters".

The official synopsis for season 4 says: "[Tanjiro joins] the members of the Demon Slayer Corps and their highest-ranking swordsmen, the Hashira.

"In preparation for the forthcoming final battle against Muzan Kibutsuji, the Hashira Training commences. While each carry faith and determination within their hearts, Tanjiro and the Hashira enter a new story."
