Seven Deadly Sins is a fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. The series then was adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 pictures. It ran for two seasons from 2014 to 2018. The third season was produced by Studio Deen and ran from 2019 to 2020, also a fourth season in 2021.
Netflix then acquired the exclusive English streaming rights for the anime series while Funimation licensed the home video rights for the first season. As the finale ended this year, the fans have been wondering whether or not they will ever see Seven Deadly Sins Season 6.
Seven Deadly Sins Plot
In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones.
They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.
Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.
Seven Deadly Sins Season 6: Will It Ever Happen?
Seven Deadly Sins Season 6 Release Date
There's still no official updates on Seven Deadly Sins Season 6, and there's still not enough source material to adapt to the new season. Therefore, it will be a long and uncertain wait. I will update this space once more information becomes available.
But based on my personal opinion and analysis, the probability of Seven Deadly Sins Season 6 is still 50:50.
Because at the end of the episode in season 5, the child of Meliodas and Elizabeth before closing the end of the episode had expressed his desire to be like his father, which is to become a member of Nanatsu no Taizai.
This is a sign of hope that the anime can be continued regardless of the manga that has ended. The next storyline could center on Tristan who is the son of Meliodas.
