The two characters that are adored by fans of Demon Slayer will not appear in the next installment of the sword-swinging anime.
The highly sought-after third season is not going to include two of the most loved characters from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu and Yaiba.
The upcoming episode of the cult anime series from Ufotable will not feature any appearances from the characters of Inosuke Hashibira and Zenitsu Agatsuma, as noted on the Facebook page Daily Dose of Anime.

Fans were introduced to both characters in the show’s first season, beginning with the “Final Selection Arc” premiering Zenitsu and the “Tsuzumi Mansion Arc” offering Inosuke his initial screen time. Zenitsu is a timid, orange-robed, blonde-haired, swordsman. Although he is a problem to the group, Zenitsu can still perform well when armed with a sword after the slayer has fallen asleep. Inosuke is an unpredictable wildcard who likes fighting and spends the majority of the time wearing the boar mask. The duo soon formed a trio along with the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado, and took part in numerous fights throughout the two seasons and the movie.
Genya Shinazugawa Returns to Season 1
While Zenitsu and Inosuke aren’t going to be in the show in Season 3, there will be a return of another Season 1 character that hasn’t been seen in a lot of screen time: Genya Shinazugawa, introduced in the “Final Selection Arc” where he was in an argument with Tanjiro. In the following episode, he was briefly featured in “Rehabilitation Training Ark” in which he defeated the protagonist. Along with Mist Hashira MuichiroTokito as well as Love Hashira Mitsurikanroji, the trio will have an important role in Season 3.
