Unfortunately, the Covid-19 crisis has delayed the initially scheduled plans. Therefore, this Japanese issue, scheduled for January next year, could last until the end of next spring.

A final season?

In fact, this season 4 could well be the last of an anime that saw the light of day in October 2014. It should be noted that the manga ended on March 25, 2020, after forty volumes published in the famous Weekly Shonen Jump. Considering that the anime closely follows the print version, it wouldn’t be surprising if this season is the last.

A logical ending for a series that has found an audience in Japan and internationally thanks to Netflix that has made it the leading figure in its Japanese anime category.

Nanatsu no Taizai, like One Piece, Bleach, Naruto Dragon Balls and others, respect the specifications of the fan service shonen, between the cute young girls with big breasts, the animal pet with the screaming voice, the most powerful enemies and battles galore. Regarding this season 4, it is convenient to stop at the continuation of the adventures of Meliodas, who definitely decided to become the King of the Demons in order to save Elizabeth.

Only the latter does not listen to him that way and goes in pursuit, accompanied by the rest of the Seven Deadly Sins. However, behind the scenes, the archangels are painstakingly preparing. For this reason, it is very possible that a new Holy War will break out, ending a truce that has lasted more than three thousand years.

Until season 4 sees the light of day, you can still follow the first three seasons that are currently available on Netflix. And then it would take a few months for the anime to air on Netflix. Probably not before the end of 2021.
