Netflix's 'The Seven Deadly Sins Season 4' Preview: Will Meliodas lose himself to his demonic self?
While the demon threat was beaten back from the Kingdom of Liones, their specter looms darkly over the upcoming season and it looks like it's going to be particularly tough on Meliodas
Netflix is all set to drop the 'Wrath of the Gods' arc of 'The Seven Deadly Sins' as Season 4 and there's going to be some very interesting storylines for fans to follow. While the demon threat was beaten back from the Kingdom of Liones, their specter looms darkly over the upcoming season and it looks like it's going to be particularly tough on Meliodas (Yūki Kaji).
The immortal Sin is going to have a tough time dealing with the aftereffects of the last season, especially with regard to his demonic side. A major plotline in the upcoming season will be Meliodas' struggle with his inner darkness. Meliodas' powers are now more powerful than ever but it comes at a steep cost. Each time he accesses the demonic side of himself, he risks losing his identity.
Unfortunately, he's not exactly in a situation where he can retreat and figure things out. There are still demonic threats all around and the Ten Commandments are still a force to be reckoned with. Another major plotline will be how the Seven Deadly Sins reunite after going their separate ways at the end of the last season. With his friends finally coming back together, we can hope that Meliodas may be able to resist the urge to embrace his dark demonic side.
With the Ten Commandments still at large and in control of Camelot, the Sins have their jobs cut out for them, bringing down the commandments and restoring Camelot to its former state. And with all those things to worry about, it's entirely possible that Meliodas may end up reverting to his demonic seld, at least in order to keep Elizabeth Liones (Sora Amamiya) safe from harm.
One way or another, it's going to be a rollercoaster season for fans to enjoy. Season 4 also features a somewhat different art style with the episodes being produced by Studio Deen instead of A-1 Pictures.
Susumu Nishizawa and Rintarō Ikeda have replaced Takeshi Furuta and Takao Yoshioka as director and series composer respectively, while Hiroyuki Sawano, Kohta Yamamoto, and Takafumi Wada have returned to their roles as music composers. The cast remains the same and the music for the show includes 'ROB THE FRONTIER' by Uverworld as the first opening episode theme song and 'Regeneration' by Sora Amamiya as the first episode ending theme song. The second opening theme song is 'delete' by SID and the second episode ending theme is 'Good day' by Kana Adachi.
'The Seven Deadly Sins' Season 4 will arrive on Netflix on August 6.
