The Demon King arc is the eighteenth arc in the series, lasting from the 307th chapter to the 334th chapter.
With their curses broken, Meliodas and Elizabeth return to Liones along with the Sins but they soon find out that Elizabeth's curse has mysteriously reactivated and Meliodas realizes that the Demon King hasn't been destroyed, by taking Zeldris over as his new vessel to survive.
