The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 release date on Netflix U.S. is finally confirmed for streaming on June 28, 2021!
The final season of the anime series will be called Nanatsu no Taizai: Fundo no Shinpan (The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon’s Judgement).
There is also going to be a The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light movie released in 2021. (Please see the news story in the link for more details.)
In November 2020, it was officially confirmed that The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 release date in Japan was scheduled for January 6, 2021.
However, this first “episode” was a special program that looks back on the “charm” of the anime TV series. That meant The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Episode 1 release date was actually a week later on January 13, 2021.
Originally, the plan was to premiere the fifth season during late 2020, but it was delayed by the effects of the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus pandemic.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 anime will have 24 episodes in total. The two cours will be released as two Blu-Ray/DVD box set volumes.
The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 OP (opening) theme song music will be “Let There Be Light (Hikari Are)” as performed by Akihito Okano, the vocalist for the band Porno Graffitti.
The ED (ending) will simply be called “time”. The song is a collaboration between Hiroyuki Sawano and ReoNa. Sawano composed both the OP and the ED.
For the second cour, the OP changed to “Eternal Aria (Eien no Aria)” by voice actress/singer Sora Amamiya.
The last season was called The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of the Gods. In Japan, the Seven Deadly Sins Season 4 Part 2 (the second cour) began airing in January 2020. The Seven Deadly Sins Season 4 Episode 24 released in Japan on March 25, 2020.
The good news is that the Nanatsu no Taizai manga’s ending left room for The Seven Deadly Sins Season 6, although the next anime TV series should go under a different and restart the season count. The Seven Deadly Sins manga sequel launched in early 2021 and it’s called The Seven Deadly Sins: The Four Knights of the Apocalypse (Nanatsu no Taizai: Mokushiroku no Yon-Kishi). (For more details about the manga sequel, click the link.)
By calling the final season The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon’s Judgement, the anime is continuing with its title naming theme. Imperial Wrath of the Gods (Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin) was a specific reference to a major story arc in the manga series’ story that headed toward the series’ “climax”.
While The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 could have been called The Seven Deadly Sins: New Holy War (Nanatsu no Taizai: Atarashi seisen or Shin seisen) based on the way the last season ended, it seems that the title is going with a heavier meaning.
The final season of the story will once again be handled by a new main staff at Studio DEEN instead of A-1 Pictures, which has been focused on the Sword Art Online anime series (see our Sword Art Online Season 4 anime article).
In November 2020, it was confirmed that all of the main staff from Imperial Wrath of the Gods is returning.
DEEN is well-known for its great KonoSuba anime adaptation and the KonoSuba: Legend of Crimson movie, but the way they handled the Sins adaptation has been heavily criticized by anime fans for its sub-par art and animation.
Manga fans were looking forward to certain fight scenes to be animated only to be disappointed by the outcome. Surprisingly, even blood was censored by being turned from red to white splashes.
The reason for the quality drop was that DEEN outsourced much of the work to Korean studio Marvy Jack, which is also returning to help produce the fifth season. Don’t recognize the name? The lesser-known studio has worked on high-profile anime such as Fairy Tail and Spice and Wolf, but they mostly produce background art and animations on a per-episode basis, not entire anime seasons.
Hopefully, since DEEN has been given the opportunity to create the final season of The Season Deadly Sins they will step up to the plate and produce a banging finale.
The good news is that Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 will be a full-length season considering how the manga ended. The anime still needs to adapt around 80 chapters.
The pacing for adapting chapters to episodes will be a 3.5-to-1 ratio in order for the anime to finish the story with 24 episodes. Studio DEEN will end the series with a two-cour The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 that airs its finale in June 2021.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be a split-cour so the anime production schedule will be crazy. Let’s also hope most of the work isn’t dumped onto the Korean outsourcing studio Marvy Jack.
Whatever the case may be, The Seven Deadly Sins 5 ending is definitely coming out in June 2021. Let’s just hope the anime adaptation makes fans happy.

This article provides everything that is known about The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 (Nanatsu no Taizai Season 5) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.
Japanese Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 is Netflix’s The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5: Will the real final season please stand up
Note: This article was updated once the exact The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 release date on Netflix U.S. was announced.
Anime purists are probably wondering why this article is referring to The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 being the ending of the anime when the series has only been confirmed to have three seasons so far. The reason is that Nanatsu no Taizai Season 3 is being labeled as the fourth season by Netflix when the anime is released internationally.
Therefore, for the purposes of this article, the season counting will be based on the Netflix standard when the English title is used and the actual season number is used for the Japanese title (unless it’s listed in quotation marks as “Season 5”).
This difference in season counting started in 2016 when the four-episode OVA (Original Video Animation) series The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs Of Holy was mistakenly labeled as being the second season when it was first released on Netflix. Rather than correct this error, when The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments released on Netflix it was labeled as Season 3.
Netflix Japan released the episodes of Nanatsu no Taizai Season 4 as they aired on TV stations in Japan. However, Netflix U.S. delayed the release of The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 because of the French, Spanish, German, and English dub. If the previous delays serve as an example then the dubbed version of the fifth season will be delayed by at least several months.
As previously announced, The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 Netflix U.S. release date will be on June 28, 2021, shortly before the Summer 2021 anime season begins.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light movie in 2021
In January 2021, a new Nanatsu no Taizai movie was announced that’s called The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light (Nanatsu no Taizai: Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi).
It will be a direct sequel to Netflix’s The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 so the movie’s timeline takes place after the Dragon’s Judgement story arc. The original story will be written by manga creator Nakaba Suzuki.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light release date in Japan is scheduled for Summer 2021. A premiere time frame for the United States, Canada, UK, and other countries hasn’t been announced yet.
Nanatsu no Taizai manga compared to The Seven Deadly Sins anime
The story for The Seven Deadly Sins anime is based on the Nanatsu no Taizai manga series by creator Nakaba Suzuki. Serialized weekly since 2012, new chapters were published in tankobon hardcover format every two months and each book includes nine chapters.
The Seven Deadly Sins manga’s ending was contained in Volume 41, which ends with Chapter 346. The final volume was released on May 15, 2020.
Kodansha Comics has been publishing The Seven Deadly Sins manga’s English translation. Volume 41 was released on November 24, 2020.
For those wanting to read the manga online, the English translation on Crunchyroll releases on a weekly basis right behind the new chapter releases in Japan.
The biggest issue that Studio DEEN faced when adapting the Nanatsu no Taizai manga’s ending was the final chapter was an unknown. In August 2018, manga creator Suzuki said that he hoped to finish the manga in “about a year”.
For years now, Suzuki has been targeting Volume 40 as being the final manga book. But in February 2020, Suzuki’s editor announced on Twitter that Volume 41 would be the final ending for the manga series.
However, starting with manga Chapter 307, the manga entered the Epilogue of the entire manga’s story. It eventually became obvious that he was setting up the conditions for a The Seven Deadly Sins manga sequel with a long epilogue. In fact, Chapter 336 seemed to be setting up a King Arthur-based manga sequel.
After all, the mangaka has stated multiple times over the years that he desires to create a sequel loosely based on King Arthur myths and it definitely seems like the The Four Knights of the Apocalypse will tie into those myths. At the same time, he’s also been contemplating drawing a baseball manga series.

Getting back to the problems faced by Studio DEEN, the anime adaptation of the first season adapted the first 100 chapters while the third season (Japanese second season) ended with Chapter 197 of Volume 24.
The fourth season stopped near the beginning of the New Holy War arc. Season 4 Episode 24: Rampaging Love was named after Chapter 265 of Volume 32.
English-only manga readers can read ahead of the fourth season by jumping straight to Volume 33.
The good news is that the fourth season left plenty of room for The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5. In fact, it’s possible there could be The Seven Deadly Sins Season 6 anime TV series if the manga sequel is popular enough.
But it’ll probably be years before The Four Knights of the Apocalypse anime is produced since the manga creator began the series in late January 2021.

The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 spoilers (plot summary/synopsis)
The choices made during the first Holy War have resulted in the current conflict. Peace was only won because the Goddess Clan sacrificed their physical bodies to use the Coffin of Eternal Darkness to seal away the Demon Clan.
With the demons having returned and conquered Camelot, the Goddess Clan’s leaders return in Season 4 by possessing human bodies. A new Stigma Alliance composed of the Goddess Clan, Fairy Clan, Giant Clan, and humans is forged in order to start a second Holy War.
After Estarossa escapes with Elizabeth, The Seven Deadly Sins and Derieri chase after him. Meanwhile, Ban reunites with Meliodas in Purgatory, and during their search for an exit to the land of the living they run into the Demon Lord himself!
Locked in combat, everyone learns a startling truth that connects Estarossa with Mael the Archangel. Estarossa continues to grow in power and become such a danger that even his allies decide to work with the Sins to defeat him.
Worse, some of the demons fuse to create a new creature called the First Demon. If the Sins and the Archangels can’t defeat this creature within 10 minutes then a new Demon King will be born!
Will Medliodas be able to find a way out of Purgatory in time to save his friends? Will he finally be able to end the curse that has plagued him and Elizabeth century after century?
The crazy part is that these pitched battles are not even the real ending! There will be plot twists and surprises ahead for anime audiences.
Unfortunately, English-only anime fans will have to wait until The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 release date on Netflix U.S. to watch how the story ends. Stay tuned!
