The Japanese light novel series of the same name by Kugane Maruyama serves as the inspiration for the action isekai anime “Overlord.” Will Overlord season 5 exist? Let’s find out!
The story revolves around Momonga, a master of the evil guild Ainz Ooal Gown, who is furious that Yggdrasil, his favorite virtual reality game, will be permanently shut down by its developers. He consequently decides to take advantage of his time in the virtual world while the Yggdrasil is still around. He is forced to accept the gaming world as his new reality after the planned shutdown time has passed because he is still there. Instead of complaining or losing his mind, Momonga decides to accept the situation as it is and embark on a mission to govern this new world.
The series, which began on July 7, 2015, is praised by critics for its superb character development and captivating plot and is considered one of the best isekai shows of all time. The show has four seasons under its belt and is still very popular all around the world today. Following the release of its season four finale, the fans have recently developed a strong interest in the future episode. If you’re interested in learning more about the topic, we have all the information you need.
Overlord Season 5 Release Date
The fourth season of “Overlord” began airing on Hulu July 5, 2022, and it concluded over three months later, on September 27, 2022. The fourth season of the program has thirteen episodes with an average runtime of about 23 minutes.
You will regretfully have a long wait if you love the show and are eagerly anticipating its return. Studio Madhouse, one of the show’s creators and distributors, has not made any recent public announcements regarding the future of the program. However, a new film set to be released in 2021 will tell Aainz’s story following the events of the season 4 finale. It is scheduled to debut somewhere in the middle of 2023 and will be an adaptation of the Holy Kingdom Arc.
Critics have given the fourth season of the isekai television series favorable reviews, and the majority of review websites give it very good ratings. The popularity of the show among fans of anime hasn’t changed over time and hasn’t really changed at all. Even while these factors seem to guarantee the show’s renewal at some point in the future, the lack of source material will likely lead the production to be delayed by a few years.
The fifth volume of the light novel series still needs at least two more books, and fresh volumes have only been produced once a year in recent years. The supporters will therefore have to wait for several years. Therefore, barring any unforeseen delays, the premiere of “Overlord” season 5 is most likely to take place sometime in late 2025 or early 2026.
Overlord Season 5 Plot Story: What It Can Be About?
After discovering Ramposa dead and returning to the castle in the season 4 finale, Aainz handily defeats Climb in a fight while Renner sobs by his side. It is later learned that Renner had plotted with Aainz and his associates to destroy the Re-Estize Kingdom because she wanted Climb and herself to become immortal so they could live together forever.
Later, as the Royal Capital begins to fall apart, Aura finds a demonic artefact in the city. Albedo finds Philip, who was initially in command of the invasion of the Re-Estize Kingdom due to his selfish goals, and tortures him. Once the Kingdom has finally fallen, the nobles swear allegiance to Aainz and permit it to become a vassal of the Sorcerer Kingdom.
In season 5, Aainz is expected to continue influencing other Kingdoms through cunning alliances and brute force. He will take a break and travel with Aura and Mare, nevertheless, after working so hard for the Sorcerer Kingdom. The Slain Theocracy will start a war with the Elven country in the meantime, in preparation for the forthcoming confrontation with the Sorcerer Kingdom.
