Season 4 just ended and now fans are wondering if there will be an Overlord season 5 anytime soon, but there’s also the issue of not having enough material to animate.
What is the future of Overlord anime?
When it comes to Isekai anime, Overlord is an outlier. It defies the typical tropes to create a vast and original world for the viewers and enchants us with the depth of the characters and of course the irresistible charm of the main character, Ainz!
Fans are obviously very excited about the prospect of Overlord Season 5.
Season 4 has been a huge success and we also have the movie coming soon. This will be the third film in the franchise, Sei Oukoku-hen. We are very excited to see how well it does in the current environment.
Hopefully the movie will be a hit which will definitely improve our chances of getting Overlord anime season 5.
In the year 2138, the MMORPG Yggdrasil was waiting to be shut down. Our protagonist was a true fan and stayed with the game until the end. However, when the servers shut down, he finds himself in a world that is the same as the one in the game.
What separates him from the others is the fact that instead of trying to discover or investigate this phenomenon, the protagonist Momonga accepts himself in this new world. He begins a great journey to take control of this new world. The fifth season of Overlord will continue and show us how much more there is to achieve.
Overlord season 5 release date
Currently, we have no information about Overlord Season 5 as it has not been announced yet. However, given the success of the series, a sequel seems quite likely. We are going to explore that in this section.
In terms of source material, Overlord is struggling a bit. Season 4 will likely build on the content of Light Novel Volume 15. Which leaves only Volume 16. A normal season takes up 4-5 volumes of the story. Therefore, at this time, more content must be released before the anime can come out.
Now, the release schedule is somewhat irregular. We have no idea when the next light novel volume will be released. To have enough content for a sequel, we need up to Overlord Volume 20. And that can take 5 years or more.
Therefore, it is highly unlikely that Overlord Season 5 will be greenlit. Despite the huge popularity and critical acclaim of the fourth season, a fifth is simply impossible at this point. However, if the volume release rate picks up, then maybe we can get the new season in 2025.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 and Second Life Ranker Anime will be announced soon and will go into pre-production.
the overlord movie
In the past, two other films were released. However, they turned out to be summaries of the first season with additional scenes and interesting content. We expect the third movie to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors.
Of course, it will include some original scenes, making the movie worth a watch for all the dedicated fans of the series.
Overlord S5 Announcement: Missing Source Material
As we said before, it’s impossible to make a sequel right now. That’s why we’re expecting the Overlord Season 5 announcement to be long overdue. In about 5 years, hoping that the hype for the series hasn’t died down, we hope it will be announced.
But look at seasons 3 and 4. They are 4 years apart and even then, season 4 has turned heads. It’s very possible that Season 5 will continue to do the same thing for the franchise. We sincerely hope to have an announcement for the next season in 2025.
