The Seven Deadly Sins anime may have ended, but there is more in store for fans as the series returns with a two-part spin-off movie titled Grudge of Edinburgh. A recent reveal by trusted leaker @shonenleaks (Shonen Leaks) stated that the anime movie will release on Netflix on December 20, 2022.

Like previous installments, fans can expect all the intense battles, dark magic, and crude jokes they know and love from the original anime series.
