Is Overlord Season 5 confirmed? Overlord Season 5 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the fifth season of this anime series.

The question is, will there be a season 5 of Overlord? And when is Overlord Season 5 coming out?

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Overlord anime season 5 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.

The Overlord anime, known as Ōbārōdo in Japan, is based on a successful light novel.

Kugane Maruyama wrote the Overlord light novel series, and So-bin did the illustrations.

Overlord is a fantastic isekai fantasy series with dark and gaming elements, so it’s no wonder that fans are asking if Overlord will have a season 5.

The main character of this anime series is Ainz Ooal Gown, the Overlord of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

The story is about a man who played as the supreme ruler in an online game. He gets trapped by a mysterious phenomenon and transferred to the game he played. He decided to explore this new world and find out if there are other players like him.

How many seasons of Overlord are there? There are four seasons of the Overlord anime. That means there is no season 5 of Overlord anime yet.

The first season is not the only thing you can see since there are some movies and OVAs made for the Overlord anime series. Fans are still expecting the release of the third movie, Overlord Movie 3: Sei Oukoku-hen, which is a sequel to the anime.

The fourth season of the Overlord anime, with 12 episodes, premiered in Japan in July 2022. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still hoping Overlord will get a Season 5.

Over the last six years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

So continue reading if you want to learn if Overlord will return for a new season and the likely Overlord Season 5 release date.

Will There Be A Season 5 Of Overlord?

We must look at two factors to determine if there will be an Overlord season 5 in 2023 and the likely Overlord season 5 release date.

The first factor is the source material, and the second is how much profit the first four seasons made.

We will now examine both to see if Overlord anime will have a season 5 or not.

Overlord Season 5 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 2023, 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 2023, 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 5 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 5 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 5 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.
