The Seven Deadly Sins is a fantasy action-adventure anime TV series based on the Japanese fantasy manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. The show is one of the most popular anime with a solid fanbase worldwide, rated 8/10 on IMDb.
Funimation currently has the home video rights of the Japanese show. Netflix received the license for the English release of the first season as its second exclusive anime series in 2015.
Once an active group of knights in the region of Britannia, the Seven Deadly Sins were disbanded and outlawed from the country as they allegedly plotted to overthrow the Liones Kingdom. Even though the Holy Knights supposedly defeated them, rumors persisted that they were still alive.
Ten years later, the Holy Knights overthrew the king, capturing him after staging a coup to become the new tyranny of the kingdom. Hence, Elizabeth, the third princess, embarks on a quest to locate the Seven Deadly Sins and seek their assistance to reclaim the realm.

New Season or Spinoff
The anime finished airing in Japan on June 23rd, 2021. Moreover, the fifth season has covered all the content of the manga. But, a good piece of information for fans is that there is a sequel to The Seven Deadly Sins manga. It is named Four Knights of the Apocalypse, written by the same person, Nakaba Suzuki.
The new film continues the story of the series, but if the new manga also gets adapted into an anime, we can expect a further continuation of the series. However, there is no official declaration of the adaptation yet.
