Of course you have seen the third season premiere of The Seven Deadly Sins, and thereby are wondering is there going to be a Season 4 of the adventure anime? No official statement has been made on the subject as of yet. But still, we are inclined to think that Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 is due to happen. The media franchise is alive and commercially successful, and we thereby don't see any reason to doubt in renewal. And below we are going to explore all the factors that point out the decision of renewal.
As a devoted fan you know that Nanatsu no Taizai has its roots in the manga of the same name, written by Nakaba Suzuki. And the manga consists of 38 volumes to date. The last, 38th volume was issued on September 17, 2019, on the eve of the current season premiere, and thereby couldn't be included in the 3rd television adaptation.
So even if the three installments cover the entire manga, there is at least one more volume, which might serve a basis for another television adaptation. Nonetheless, since it takes at least a year to produce another television season, we assume that there are at least four volumes that have not been included into the third television season (Vol. 35-38). We thus have a bit source material for The Seven Deadly Sins Season 4.
As for reception from viewers, it was not so impressive compared to the previous seasons of the anime, but still above average, given a score of 6.86 based on about 15,000 votes in MyAnimeList. It's worth mentioning that the BD/DVD box will be available for sale on February 12, 2020, according to the official news published on the official website of the anime. If we had the BD/DVD sales statistics, it would be much easier to predict the future of the anime series.
Summing up, all indications are that The Seven Deadly Sins Season 4 is due to happen since we have source material for a new television season; critics and viewers were satisfied while watching the current installment of Nanatsu no Taizai; and of course we are looking forward to the statistics of the BD/DVD sales to prove our opinion with more data. Our verdict thus that Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 is just a matter of time.
We want you to know that we keep waiting for the official announcement. That's why we are tracking down all the official Japanese sources on the subject of Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4. Once the official data emerges, we will update this page.
Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 Release Date
As mentioned above, we have every reason to believe that Nanatsu no Taizai could return for another television season. But when should we expect the upcoming premiere in such a case? Well, it was a huge gap between the 1st and 2nd installment of The Seven Deadly Sins which lasted for four years. Meanwhile, the hiatus between the two last seasons was not so long, about a year.
In our opinion, we doubt that we would wait for another four years before the 4th season is released. But still, the release date is very depending on availability of the source material. Therefore, first, we need to know how many volumes the current season covers. We hope that no too many of them. In such a case, we might expect Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 already next fall, in October 2020, given the current schedule.
However, since the data above is nothing but our forecast, we will be updating the article regularly, once we have new information. We are looking forward to any official news from both A-1 Pictures and Studio Deen. As soon as one of them provides us reliable data on the subject of The Seven Deadly Sins Season 4 or even sets a specific release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
