By the way, The Seven Deadly Sins adaptation is an excellent example how the world of anime works. Few people believed in renewal. Most of fans lost their hope. Nanatsu no Taizai Season 1 came to an end back in 2015. Therefore, millions of fans were forced to wait for three years before the second season appeared on the small screens. That's why today most of you wonder whether there will be The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3? Let's try to figure it out.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3 Must Happen
Above all, it's worth mentioning that there are only two seasons of Nanatsu no Taizai. Some fans mistakenly took The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War for Season 2, while in fact, it was nothing but only a 4-episode special. As mentioned above, The Seven Deadly Sins Season 2 kicked off on January 13, 2018 and concluded on June 30, 2018.
Frankly, we are confident that Nanatsu no Taizai Season 3 will happen since there is enough source material for another television adaptation. Before The Seven Deadly Sins Season 2 aired, 236 chapters have been issued. Meanwhile, to date, Nanatsu no Taizai vol. 34 is released, which contains the chapters 276-280. As a result, we have at least 44 additional chapters for another television adaptation.
Of course, you may argue that we didn't count the OVA episodes and a special which premiered in 2016. In fact, about 256 chapters were adapted in total. But there is no cause for concern since Nakaba Suzuki claimed that he is about to produce at least 40 volumes of manga. So, in any case, there is (or will be) enough source material for The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3.
Another good indicator which plays in favor of renewal is the favorable statistics of both seasons. No one will doubt that Nanatsu no Taizai is incredibly popular among both regular viewers and fans. The second season of the anime was even more successful versus its predecessor, according to MAL (8.30/10 > 133,700 votes vs. 8.25/10 > 447,500 votes). Also worth noting that the Nanatsu no Taizai franchise was pretty successful in sales. We doubt thereby that the A-1 Pictures studio would opt to cancel the promising franchise.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3 Release Date
Nanatsu no Taizai Season 3 release date is a subject of discourse. In fact, it's quite complicated to predict the exact period for the possible premiere. Given the fact that the gap between two seasons was about three years, the Season 3 premiere could take place even in 2021. Nonetheless, we're more optimistic on the subject.
Since the franchise is revived, we tend to believe that The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3 might appear on the small screens someday at the end of 2019 or 2020. So we hope that Nanatsu no Taizai will return for its third installment next fall. In any case, we are forced to wait for the official announcement. Once the A-1 Pictures studio announces the renewal, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
