2nd play of Nakaba Suzuki's manga runs in Tokyo in June

An official website opened on Tuesday to reveal that Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga is getting a new stage play adaptation that will run at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo from June 18 to 28. The play is titled Nanatsu no Taizai The Stage -Uragiri no Seikishi-chō- (The Seven Deadly Sins Stage Play: The Treacherous Great Holy Knights). The website also revealed 17 cast members for the play.

Nobuhiro Mōri (Hakuōki, Black Butler stage plays) is returning from the previous play to direct and write the script.

The first stage play of Suzuki's manga ran in August 2018 at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo and at Umeda Arts Theater Dramacity in Osaka.

The manga ended in Weekly Shōnen Magazine on Wednesday. The manga's 40th compiled book volume confirmed on February 17 that the series will end in the 41st volume, which will ship on May 15.

Suzuki launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2012. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English digitally and in print. Crunchyroll is posting new chapters as they appear in Japan.

The manga's first 24-episode television anime series aired in 2014 and 2015. Netflix later streamed the series with both English and Japanese audio, and Funimation released the series in two parts on home video. A four-episode television anime special titled The Seven Deadly Sins -Signs of Holy War- then premiered in August 2016. Netflix began streaming the series in February 2017. The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments, the second television anime series, premiered in January 2018, and Netflix began streaming the series in October 2018.

The manga also inspired the anime film The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky that opened in Japan in August 2018.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath of the Gods (Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin), a new television anime series by Studio DEEN, premiered on October 9, and is ongoing.
