The Seven Deadly Sins is getting real close its comeback. The anime will return in January 2018 with its second season, and a new TV spot for the debut just dropped.
As you can see below, a 30-second teaser for The Seven Deadly Sins has been released in Japan. The clip shows Hawk as the piggy companion giving an overview of the series. Some of the anime’s main characters like Meliodas, Ban, Elizabeth Liones, and more are featured in the reel.
The teaser also gives an exact date for the second season’s debut. The Seven Deadly Sins will return on January 6 to be exact, and fans will be able to keep up with the show on Netflix. If you’re more into the manga, then you can read its SimulPub on Crunchyroll.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments deals with the Ten Commandments, ten powerful warriors each chosen by the Demon King and bear a powerful curse known as a "Commandment." It gives them enhanced strength, but will curse them should they break one of the Demon King's rules. The Ten Commandments lived 3000 years ago until a betrayal from one of their members led to them being sealed in the Coffin of the Eternal Darkness.
For those unfamiliar with The Seven Deadly Sins, the series was created by Nakaba Suzuki. It follows the story of Elizabeth, third princess of a kingdom that has been taking over by the Holy Knights after staging a coup. She leaves in search of The Seven Deadly Sins, a group of knights who had defended the kingdom ten years ago who had disbanded after they were blamed for plotting against the kingdom. Though the Holy Knights had said the Seven Sins had been slain, Elizabeth eventually meets their leader Meliodas.
The series has been published in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since October 2012, and has run for 246 chapters and had been collected into 28 volumes as of October 2017. The series has sold over 10 million copies, and has been licensed for an English language released in North America by Kodansha with Crunchyroll releasing chapters digitally as they release in Japan. The series has been adapted into an anime series by A-1 Pictures that ran for 24 episodes from October 2014 to March 2015. Netflix has acquired the English language streaming rights in North America (its second ever exclusive anime series), and there was a short four episode TV special, The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War in 2016.
