No, this is just usual. But you can say "demain, c'est dimanche".

can it be 'demain il est dimanche'?

No, this is not the way the French say it.

If I just wanted to so "It is tomorrow" would I say "Nous sommes demain"? What about for other periods of time, like today, this week, next week, next month, etc?

"it is tomorrow" would mean that something is going to happen tomorrow.

In this case, you will say "c'est demain"

Can you say "Demain on est dimanche" ?

In conversation, yes, no problem.

I've noticed this a lot when french people speak english they say 'we are wednesday today?' and so on. So I guessed that this is what they say in french, here's the proof.

Quick question to clarify. Does this expression apply to all days of the week? Merci

Why not "Demain nous serons dimanche"?

This translation is accepted.

This is really confusing; the literal translate would be tomorrow we are sunday. At first I typed that it and it marked me wrong, obviously. But would it not be right if the sentence was demain c'est dimanche?

tomorrow is Sunday = demain, nous sommes/on est/c'est dimanche.
