The Seven Deadly Sins is an anime series based on manga of the same name. Contrary to common practice, it is based on Celtic myths and actively borrows plots from the saga of King Arthur, and the action unfolds on British territory, not in Japan, which is often observed in anime. Screening of the project began back in 2014. In four years, studio A-1 Picture released two seasons.

What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
A long lull culminated in the release of two new seasons in 2021. Rumors vary about the future. There are reports that a fourth season is a final season, but the show was bought out by Netflix. The show began airing on that streaming giant on June 28, and there are reports that Netflix executives want to make a final fifth season to finalize the story. If this is true, the release date for season 5 of the anime The Seven Deadly Sins is set for the end of 2022.
The Seven Deadly Sins is the story of the confrontation of the exiled seven knights. They guarded the British crown and being the strongest fighters they were nicknamed the seven deadly sins. Later, unknown men staged a coup, killed civilians, and imprisoned the royal family. The traitors spread rumors that it was the initiative of the Seven Knights. They immediately began to be sought, and the people vowed to hold a lynching against the heroes, for the royal family, declared dead, was loved and respected by all.
Meanwhile, the younger princess Elizabeth managed to escape. She knows the truth, but they do not believe her and consider her an impostor. The girl is looking for knights to help her save her relatives and regain the throne. The release date for season 5, if developed, could be in 2022.

Judging the chances of filming a sequel is difficult. Although the manga is complete, not all of the events have been shown in the seasons that have come out. This may serve to create a sequel, the release date of season 5 of the anime The Seven Deadly Sins, in this case, will take place in 2022. But the project actively comes out with the spin-offs and is based on his already filmed two feature films. This may indicate that the authors are not interested in doing a sequel, and will continue to tell the story with separate projects.
However, the fact that Netflix is interested in anime gives hope, because the service often buys out various shows to not just show them, but to give new life. If the project shows good ratings already when shown on the streaming platform, the chances of shooting the fifth season are great. Its release date could be in 2022.
