The Seven Deadly Sins anime is getting a second season and movie, according toA-1 Pictures, who revealed the news during a Seven Deadly Sins live-stream event. 

The film will release sometime during Japan's summer next year. It’s unclear whether the film will relate to the new season but more news is said to be revealed at a later date.

The new anime season Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments will begin airing in January next year. The series will explore Meliodas and friends’ battle with the Ten Commandments - a group of notorious demons with powerful curses. Fans of the manga can testify that this is easily one of the most action packed, well-paced arcs in the series thus far, so we’re looking forward to seeing some incredibly well animated scenes.

Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments will be directed by Takeshi Furuta (Case Closed, Yona of the Dawn, Nobunagan) who helped develop the storyboard for some episodes in the first season, and composed by Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill, Re:Creators) and Takafumi Wada (Highschool of the Dead, Seven Deadly Sins, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign).

A promotional video for the first volume of the spin-off series' release, Seven Deadly Sins: Seven Days, was also revealed. Seven Days tells the story of adventurer Ban, who after discovering the Fountain of Youth and a dying fairy queen called Elaine in a magical forest, is changed forever.

You can catch up on the first season and a four-part mini-series titled Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War on Netflix. The streaming service has yet to announce plans to simulcast the new season or movie - we’ve reached out to them and will update this story with their reply. Bandai Namco Entertainment are also developing a Playstation 4 game called Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia, which is set to release sometime next year..

Seven Deadly Sins is a fantasy shounen series based on Nakaba Suzuki’s original manga published in Weekly Shonen Magazine.
