The anime premiered last October, and ended on March 25.
The anime featured a new main staff, with Studio DEEN producing the anime. (A-1 Pictures handled the previous series and film.) Susumu Nishizawa (The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments storyboards) directed the anime, with Rintarou Ikeda (Love and Lies, Hakyū Hōshin Engi, Love Tyrant scripts) in charge of series composition. Rie Nishino (Now and Then, Here and There, Wind: A Breath of Heart) was credited for "animation character setting."

Nanatsu no Taizai: Fundo no Shinpan (The Seven Deadly Sins: Anger's Judgment), the franchise's new television anime series, was slated to premiere in October, but it has been delayed due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The anime's official website and Twitter account will announce a new premiere date when it is decided. The new anime series will air on TV Tokyo's six affiliate channels and BS-TV Tokyo. The main cast members will return for the new anime.
The franchise'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.
