The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 is getting delayed but it will happen. Nanatsu no Taizai is based on the manga of the same name first aired in 2014. It is a great success among the audiences. This generally well-received show has high expectations from its fans. Read on to know everything you need to know for the upcoming seasons. Here’s everything we know.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Story
Since the show has already covered quite a few arcs, the story is quite vast. So, we will give you a general idea of the story. The story takes place in a world that is like the middle ages. In Britannia, there are extremely powerful Holy Knights.
These knights protect Britannia and its kingdoms. But, a small group of these knights turns against the others. This small group of knights is known as the “Seven Deadly Sins”.
There is supposedly a conspiracy that the Seven Deadly Sins wanted to overthrow the kingdom and were defeated by the Holy Knights but still live on. Ten years later, the Holy knights themselves implement themselves as the rulers after a coup d’état.
The third princess of the kingdom, Elizabeth Liones sets out to look for the seven knights. She finds herself in a bar owned by the former leader of those seven knights. His name is Meliodas. The Dragon’s Sin of Wrath. The stories follow their search for the other knights and the adventures they face.

The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Release Date
As the fourth season has been delayed to January 2021, we expect the release date to be announced later on. The delay happened because of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, it has the potential to be announced in late 2021 or early 2022.
However, it is confirmed that there will be a fifth season. It was confirmed in August 2020 that the title of the new season would be “The Seven Deadly Sins: The Judgment of Anger”. We also got the first glimpse of season 5 on Twitter from September 2020, which can be seen below.
