Will there be a sixth anime season?
Unfortunately, there will likely not be a sixth anime season for The Seven Deadly Sins.
This is because the series has now completely adapted the original source material from the manga series, meaning the story has now come to an end.
However, some fans are hopeful that following Cursed by Light’s international release, a spin-off or sequel project will be announced.
This would most likely concern the sequel manga series ‘Four Knights of the Apocalypse’. The series tells the story of a young boy called Percival, who is prophesied to be one of the four knights who will bring destruction to the world.
Three volumes have been published in Japan, which may not be enough for a full anime season, but could provide a solid start point for The Seven Deadly Sins to continue. You can read more here.
