Overlord Season 5 has yet to get confirmed in 2022. There is no release date for the fifth season of this anime series.

Will there be Overlord Season 5? When is season 5 coming out? These are questions we will answer about the next season in this post.

You will learn if Overlord anime season 5 will happen or if this anime series is over and finished. We will look at the new season’s likely release date as well.

But first, quick essential information.

The anime series Overlord, known as Ōbārōdo in Japanese, is one of the best isekai anime series with dark fantasy elements.

The main protagonist of this series is Ainz, who finds himself transported into a game called YGGDRASIL. Ainz explores the world to understand what happened.

The Overlord anime series is based on a light novel. In 2022, the series is still ongoing. The first volume of the light novel came out 10 years ago.

Kugane Maruyama is the author of Overlord, and the artist So-Bin does the stunning art for this series.

So far, Overlord has four seasons and a movie. The movie is titled The Holy Kingdom. The film is not released yet. In addition, Overlord has two compilation films. So no Overlord s5 yet.

The first season of the anime television series Overlord premiered in 2015, with 13 episodes. Seven years later, fans are still asking for a new season.

So what happened to Season 5? Will it ever happen, and what is the Overlord Season 5 release date? Let’s answer that now.

Overlord Season 5

Overlord Season 4 Manga & Light Novel


The Overlord anime television series, known as Ōbārōdo in Japan, is based on a successful light novel that was first published in 2012.

The Overlord light novel series is written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin.

How many volumes of Overlord are there?

As of March 2022, there have been 14 volumes published of the Overlord light novel series in Japan.

There is also an Overlord manga. The manga currently has 16 volumes released.

I highly recommend checking out all the Overlord books if you are a fan of the Overlord series.

Is The Overlord Light Novel Finished?

The Overlord light novel series is still ongoing in 2022, but the end is not far away. According to the author, the Overlord series will end with volume 17.

Kugane Maruyama, the author, published the latest volume 14 in Japan on March 12, 2020.

There were no new volumes released in 2021. Also, the Overlord light novel volume 15 release date is June 30, 2022.

Which Volumes Will season 4 cover?

Overlord season 4 will cover light novel volumes 10, 11, and end on volume 12. The fourth season will cover three light novel volumes. The new movie should adapt volume 13.

Each season of the Overlord anime adapted three volumes. The first season did volumes 1 to 3, the second one did 4 to 6, and the third one did volumes 7 to 9.

So, if you want to continue the story from where the third season ended, have a look at Overlord Light Novel Volume 10 in English.

how many Episodes will Overlord Season 4 have?

Overlord Season 4 will have 13 episodes. The same number of episodes as the previous three seasons had.

That is more than enough episodes to adapt three light novel volumes.

Also, Overlord will have five seasons in total. So, after the fourth season, you can expect an Overlord season 5.

I highly recommend checking out the Overlord Light Novels. It will take the anime around three more years to adapt all of the Overlord light novel volumes.

Overlord Season 4 Release Date

Overlord Season 4 Release Date


Overlord Season 4 is confirmed, and the Overlord Season 4 official release date is July 2022. The new Overlord movie is likely to come out in 2023, but the release date for the film has not been announced yet.

There is also the Isekai Quartet movie. It has Overlord characters, so Overlord fans have a lot to look forward to this year. The new Overlord light novel volume, the Isekai Quartet movie, and Overlord Season 4 are coming out this year. 

So far, Studio Madhouse has done a great job with this anime adaptation, and I believe they will make Overlord Season 4 even better than the first three seasons. The trailer looks epic, so I have high hopes for the fourth season. You can watch the trailer below.

While we wait for the new season of Overlord, I highly recommend checking out Overlord merchandise if you’re a fan of the Overlord series. There is some fantastic stuff made for this franchise.

Some examples of the fantastic merch made for Overlord are this Albedo Yukata Ver Overlord Figure and this Ainz Ooal Gown figure. Also, check out this funny Ainz Ooal Gown Yukata Ver Overlord figure.

I will update this post as soon as there is any more information on the Overlord Season 4 release date and when Overlord Season 4 Episode 1 is coming out on Crunchyroll or Netflix on the official Overlord Twitter account.
