The spectacular Anime series, The Seven Deadly Sins, released a short trailer that teases its fourth season. Titled ‘Wrath Of The Gods,’ the new season seems to up the stakes and continues the adventures of its heroes.
The Seven Deadly Sins, based on a manga series of the same name, is one of the most popular anime in the US. Debuting in 2014, the show found a new worldwide audience after Netflix began streaming all seasons of the show.
How Deadly Are The Seven Sins Really?
The show features a deposed Princess whose kingdom was taken away from her by a coup from the Holy Knights. To reclaim her birthright, she embarks on a journey to find a group of knights known as the Seven Deadly Sins. Once protectors of the realm, the Sins were framed for conspiring against the kingdom and went their separate ways. The premise of the show follows Elizabeth as she tries to reunite the Sins and save her kingdom. Along her journey, she ends up meeting the former leader of the Knights, Meliodas.
The Seven Deadly Sins has been received well due to its complex and ensemble cast of characters. The show also features shorter story arcs that focus on mini adventures throughout the seasons. The premise of a journey to band together a bunch of ragtag, formerly awesome Knights with their own emotional baggage is not new. This series, however, puts an exciting new spin on the concept.
The anime is a great watch for new audiences due to its appealing style of animation. Its more grounded action appeals to audiences unfamiliar with anime. For fans of the genre, the show is lighthearted. These stories rely less on heavy fantasy or other sci-fi and fantasy concepts.
Breaking Down The Various Seasons
The Seven Deadly Sins has thus far had three seasons, (all available on Netflix) along with one feature-length movie. The first season of the show is classified as The Seven Deadly Sins, while the subsequent seasons get their own subtitle.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs Of Holy War followed by Revival Of The Commandments make up seasons two and three, respectively. There was also a feature-length movie titled Prisoners Of The Sky, also on Netflix.
Trailer For Wrath Of The Gods
The trailer for season four of The Seven Deadly Sins, titled Wrath Of The Gods, looks incredible without revealing too much. The teaser introduces us to the main characters, along with some shocking imagery of the more familiar faces. Elizabeth with wings anyone?
The new season debuts in Japan sometime in the Fall of 2019. This means that audiences outside of Japan may have to wait a little while longer before the show appears on Netflix in its subbed or dubbed versions.
The Seven Deadly Sins is now streaming on Netflix.
