The Seven Deadly Sins is set to return this 2018 with a brand new season of 24 episodes, due to the success the first one had after it’s premiere on Netflix -where you can currently binge watch the first season and a couple of OVAs- and while we wait for the premiere of season two, there are some things that have been revealed for the last couple of weeks.
Before we start, in case you don’t know about The Seven Deadly Sins, a quick recap: the anime/manga series -created by Nakaba Suzuki- tells the story of Elizabeth, the princess of a kingdom that has been taken over by the Holy Knights after staging a coup, after she leaves her kingdom in search of The Seven Deadly Sins, a group of knights who had defended them years ago but disbanded after they were framed for plotting against the kingdom and are now believed to be dead. Soon after beginning her quest, Elizabeth meets Meliodas, the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins, confirming they are alive.
The first reveal we had was that this season will be named The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments, a storyline around the Ten Commandments, ten powerful warriors who were chosen by the Demon King to bear a “Commandment,” which gives them enhanced strength at the cost of a curse, if they break one of the Demon King’s rules. For 3000 years they were unbothered until one of them betray the others and led them to be sealed in the Coffin of the Eternal Darkness.
Following the announcement of the name of the series, we had our first look at this second season with a new poster, where we looked at Meliodas and someone who appeared to be Zeldris, a warrior from the Demon Clan, and one of Meliodas’ younger brothers, who became one of the Ten Commandment’s after the betrayal of his brother.
As the second series premiered today -January 13- in Japan, another announcement came with it and it was the brand new intro of the anime, with a new opening theme, running by the title Howling and created by FLOW and GRANRODEO, and introducing us to some new characters, including a new Deadly Sin -Escanor, the Lion Sin of Pride- while teasing the ultimate battle between the Sins and the Commandments.
This second season will be featuring the ending theme, Beautiful by Anly and will mark the return of the voice cast from the original season.
