Last week, we reported on false rumours circulating on the release date for season 4. This week, The Seven Deadly Sins has been removed from July shows in promotional posters.

Let’s be honest, most of us who watch anime are used to false rumours about release dates, delays and cancellations, but it still frustrates the heck out of me.

A few days ago, false rumours began circulating online about the exact release date for The Seven Deadly sins season 4 being set for July 4.

However, Netflix has now published the official poster for upcoming shows in July…but it doesn’t feature The Seven Deadly Sins – ugh!

Netflix removes anime from upcoming shows for July poster…

Netflix has caused some serious confusion within the anime community today.

They have just released the official promotional poster for upcoming shows in July, but it doesn’t show The Seven Deadly Sins season 4.

Many have assumed that this means the season 4 premiere has been delayed and will not be released this month.

However, it could be possibility that the English dubbing is slightly delayed, and so the platform is waiting for this to be ready before releasing seaosn 4 – considering this is one of their most popular original anime for western audiences.

The Seven Deadly Sins season 4: Unconfirmed rumours…

Rumours about an official release date being the 4th of July have been circulating on the internet for the past few days. However, none of the claiming articles had any actual links to credible sources.

We believe that this rumour was primarily driven by the sharing of old tweets concerning the upcoming American July 4th celebration being a representation of ‘Pride’ – part of the *religious* ‘seven deadly sins’.

The 4th of July then slowly became associated with The Seven Deadly Sins anime series and subsequently, people started to believe that this was the release date for season 4.

However, as The Seven Deadly Sins is one of Netflix’s most popular original anime, if the July 4 rumour was true, then surely the platform would have been marketing the premiere date none-stop on social media.

The Seven Deadly Sins season 4: Official Netflix announcement…

At the time of writing, the only official information that we have from Netflix is that season 4 of The Seven Deadly Sins will still premiere this July – albeit this is now under scrutiny with the recent poster.

However, an exact release date has not yet been confirmed by either the streaming platform or Studio Deen – the animation studio behind season 4.

We will update this page with more information as soon as it is announced from official sources, so keep checking back in.
