North American The Seven Deadly Sins fans are rejoicing, as it looks like new content is coming to Netflix soon.
The image below popped up on the internet today, showing that Netflix has season two listed to release on February 17. Netflix acquired the exclusive rights to the anime series and released the first season with English dubs and subs, and is one of six Netflix exclusively licensed anime series on the site.
The announcement has been catching some flack on the internet however, because the upcoming release seems to be mislabeled. The series releasing next month is not the true season two but rather a mini series titled Signs of Holy War which has been out for quite some time in Japan. It is a sequel to the first season's story, but is only a four episode story arc that takes place between the full seasons. Holy War is described as a mini series or bridging season so that the anime will be concurrent with the manga storyline. Season two has been confirmed to release in 2017 but there is still set date on when it will be available for streaming on Netflix.
If you are unfamiliar with The Seven Deadly Sins, it is a fun series that takes a creative take on a world set in European Middle Ages. Netflix description of the series is as follows,
"When a kingdom is taken over by tyrants, the deposed princess begins a quest to find a disbanded group of evil knights to help take back her realm."
The Seven Deadly Sins is available for streaming exclusively for Netflix, and The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War will be available on February 17, 2017.
