How to watch ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ in order

Looking to know the best way to watch 'The Seven Deadly Sins?' Here's the best way to follow Meliodas on his adventures.

If you’re into anime and have a Netflix subscription, then you’ve likely seen or at least heard of The Seven Deadly Sins, and for good reason. Over the years, Netflix’s first major anime hit series has grown a huge following with multiple seasons and movies to match, and this only looks to get bigger.

With fast-paced action, great characters, and a unique story, there’s no reason not to add this anime to your watchlist. Here’s the best way to experience everything that The Seven Deadly Sins has to offer.

The show follows the captain of the former team of the Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, as he attempts to get the gang back together again to fend off the Holy Knights and assist Princess Elizabeth with reclaiming the Kingdom of Liones. The big problem for Meliodas is that he and his former crew will have to stop a variety of villains who plan to annihilate the earth.

There are five seasons of the original series, two OVAs, and two movies that make up The Seven Deadly Sins universe. Needless to say, this is a lineup that’s sure to keep you occupied for at least a few weeks.

This is without mentioning the completely new spin-off series headed to Netflix in 2024. Here’s the way you’re going to want to go about watching these releases.

  • The Seven Deadly Sins (Season 1)
  • Nanatsu no Taizai (OVA)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War (Season 2)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments (Season 3)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky (Movie)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Heroes’ Frolic (OVA)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of the Gods (Season 4)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Dragon’s Judgement (Season 5)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light (Movie)
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse (Season 1)

This order should flow perfectly outside of the movie, Cursed By Light, as this film takes place midway through the final episode of the series. If you want to be pedantic, you could theoretically pause the episode halfway through and check the film out before continuing.

However, watching the series in its entirety and then the film doesn’t detract from its greatness.

Four Knights of the Apocalypse is the next and final addition to this watch order arriving on Netflix on Jan. 31, 2024. The show is a spin-off of the original series set 16 years after the Holy War.

The series includes an entirely new generation of characters but is grounded in the same reality, so we suggest catching up on the main series before starting Four Knights of the Apocalypse.

The Seven Deadly Sins is now available to stream on Netflix.
