Season 3 of Seven Deadly Sins is on its way to Netflix in 2019
The insanely popular manga turned anime series Seven Deadly Sins are coming in for a third season on Netflix but this time Studio DEEN is helming the series, not A-1 Pictures. Having two glorious seasons and an action pack movie with an original story from the manga creator Nakaba Suzuki its no wonder that Netflix is keeping the ball rolling and getting in the third season set to premiere October 2019.
Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath of the Gods, as the season will be titled, is heading toward the overall series climax. Studio DEEN announced Monday that it is producing this upcoming season with Rintarou Ikeda (Love and Lies, Hanebad!) handling story composition while Rie Nishino is in charge of animation character setting. But there is plenty of returning staff like Susumu Nishizawa (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E.73: Stargazer) who’s back on board as director after doing storyboards on Revival Of The Commandments, music composers Hiroyuki Sawano, Kohta Yamamoto, and Takafumi Wada are also back again. The amazing cast of Yuuki Kaji as Meliodas, Sora Amamiya as Elizabeth, Misaki Kuno as Hawk, Aoi Yuki as Diane, Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Ban, Jun Fukuyama as King, Yuuhei Takagi as Gowther, Maaya Sakamoto as Merlin, and Tomokazu Sugita as Escanor are also all returning for this third season.
