Plot ( Spoilers)
There has been no official statement about the plot of Season 4. But Season 3 ended with Meliodas being killed by the Ten Commandments in Nanatzuno Taizai. His brother Estarossa stabbed him with seven knives. Ban tried his best to save him, with Elizabeth feverishly trying to heal him. But their efforts went in vain.
Instead of being sent to the Capital of the Dead, he was sent to the Purgatory, where he talked to his father, the Demon King. This scene reveals that the father cursed Meliodas with immortality, and thus he came back to life in the Purgatory. Season 4 will carry on the story from here on.
