Is the Seven Deadly Sins Anime Over?

The Seven Deadly Sins has been a beloved anime for several years now. Fans loved watching the story of Princess Elizabeth and her band of knights as they adventured through a high fantasy world that resembled medieval Europe. The series spanned five seasons and a movie, and it has left audiences wanting more. But is it really over?

If you're a Seven Deadly Sins fan, you'll be pleased to know that the series is not over. The anime has wrapped up its fifth season, titled Dragon's Judgment. The final episode aired in Japan earlier this year, and the movie adaptation of the series is currently streaming on Netflix. Dragon's Judgement covers most of the story's manga conclusion and offers a satisfying ending for most of the main characters.

But even though the show is over for now, that doesn't mean there won't be another opportunity to follow the adventures of Meliodas and his friends. The manga sequel, Four Knights of the Apocalypse, was released in January 2021. It's possible that the new sequel could inspire a third season of the anime. However, since the new manga is a fairly new addition to the franchise, it may be a while before enough material is available to justify another anime adaptation.

As a result, it's likely that the Seven Deadly Sins will remain in hiatus until at least 2022. In the meantime, you can read the manga and watch the first three seasons of the show on Netflix. You can also check out the one-off spin-off film, Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1, which follows the son of Meliodas. This spin-off film was written by original manga creator Nakaba Suzuki, who is also writing the Four Knights of the Apocalypse sequel.

With the finale of the fourth season on the horizon, it's definitely time to start thinking about what you will do when the show ends. You can rewatch the entire series on Netflix or catch up on the anime on Hulu. If you're a true fan of the Seven Deadly Sins, you can also purchase the original Japanese tankobon volumes at various online and brick-and-mortar stores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, and Hudson Booksellers.

The Seven Deadly Sins anime has ended, but the story will continue in the form of a movie. The second film, titled The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light, is due to release in Japan on July 2, 2021. The film will cover a story that takes place after the conclusion of the Holy War, and it will feature the return of several of the main cast members, including Yuki Kaji who voices both Meliodas and Zeldris. The film will also introduce two new characters, the second-generation Fairy King Dahlia and Giant Master Craftsman Dubs. With the film coming out so close to the anime's end, it is unlikely that a fifth season will be produced, but there is always hope. Besides, the new film will tie up most loose ends and give fans a look at what the future holds for the beloved series.
