The Seven Deadly Sins season 5 is one of the most popular anime ever produced on Netflix. However, despite its recognition, the series will not be arriving anytime soon.
Based on the manga series of the same name, The Seven Deadly Sins has a quiet solid fan base. With the fourth season currently streaming on Netflix, and garnering high viewership status, it’s no surprise if the series receives a swift renewal status. Hence, The Seven Deadly Sins season 5 will once again place the manga adaptation into the global platform.
What is the narrative all about
The narrative follows the main character, Elizabeth, the princess of Britannia. She finds the truth behind the framing of the Seven Deadly Sins, a band of knights. The Sins are then exiled, while the King’s guards, the Holy Knights take over the kingdom, and kills Elizabeths’s father. As the story progresses, Elizabeth seeks the help of the Sins as she runs for her life from the true enemy of her kingdom.
Season 4 of Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins: Anger's Judgment) will be released in January 2021.

What to expect from The Seven Deadly Sins season 5
While season 4 is remarkably successful, the fifth season will continue to honor the series’ core theme. Back in August, it was confirmed that the new season will have the title, The Seven Deadly Sins: The Judgement of Anger.

The official synopsis shares a partial look into the content of the series. It says:
“Meliodas, Elizabeth, Hawk, Dianne, Van, King, Gowther, Merlin, and Escanor are standing against the flames, a mighty enemy, and a visual depicting the members of the Seven Deadly Sins confronting their destiny.”
Furthermore, fans will also witness the rise of the demon king, in the form of Meliodas. The next season will ultimately awaken a darker and stronger Meliodas. Because of this, fans have already speculated that Meliodas will be the next the Demon King of the Demon Clan.
To recall, Meliodas revealed his true demonic form and the leader of the Ten Commandments group. Surprisingly, this was an unexpected twist in the series’ plot.
Netflix release date
The fifth season is supposed to arrive in Japan in October 2020. However, the pandemic has pushed back the release date a year later. Like many other manga adaptations, the pandemic has temporarily shut down all operations.
The Seven Deadly Sins will arrive in January 2021 in Japan. Although there is no official release date yet, the series will hopefully debut next year. The fifth installment will presumably arrive on Netflix in April 2021.
