The latest on Demon Slayer Season 4's release indicates when the film, To the Hashira Training, will begin streaming.

Demon Slayer released another film in theaters this year, bridging the gap between Seasons 3 and (yet to be released) 4 of the anime.

It has earned $48.7 million at the worldwide box office, but its time in North American theaters is closing after raking in $17.2 million domestically.

Similar to Hollywood films in the 2020s, as soon as a film's theatrical run ends, audiences shift their attention to its imminent streaming release.

In news that will delight many fans, Demon Slayer Season 4 will start streaming on May 12, per Crunchyroll.

Over the past several years, the Demon Slayer movies that correlate to a new season have been released close to the series premiere.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train started streaming on Crunchyroll on October 4, 2021, one week before the premiere of Season 2 on the service.

Removing any wait, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – To the Swordsmith Village started streaming on Crunchyroll on April 9, 2023, the same day as the premiere of Season 3.

With Season 4 slated to commence streaming on May 12, it is plausible that To the Hashira Training will follow suit and begin streaming on or around that same day.

Regardless, history shows that by the time Season 4's first episode is available, the film, which premiered in theaters, will be streaming.
