Overlord Season 5 has yet to be announced by the creators as of this writing, even after the fourth season has ended. However, because there is so much more material to cover in the series, it is very likely to happen.

Overlord 4 covered light novel volumes 10, 11, and 14, whereas volumes 12 and 13 will be covered by the upcoming Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie, so there will be more source material available for Season 5.

Unfortunately, it will not happen anytime soon, so don't expect much for a new Overlord anime adaptation.

The anime made a special note at the end of Overlord 4 that says "And the End Begins."

While it does not explicitly confirm Overlord Season 5, it does give fans hope that they will be able to see more of Ainz Ooal Gown and the other NPC guardians in the future, even after years of waiting.

Do you recall how you had to wait four years for Overlord to release the fourth season?

In any case, we're crossing our fingers that the wait will be quick.

For the time being, it is clear that the creators are hard at work on the new Overlord film.

Overlord's fourth season followed the events that occurred shortly after the battle of Katze Plains against the forces of the Re-Estize Kingdom, in which Gazeff Stronoff died an honorary death.

Just after that, Ainz planned to conquer the Re-Estize Kingdom to demonstrate how foolish it is for an empire to oppose the plans of the guild of Ainz Ooal Gown.

Throughout Season 4, Ainz successfully held the Baharuth Empire as a vassal state, paving the way for him to put his plan into action in the Dwarven Kingdom and the Frost Dragons.

In addition to the Sacred Kingdom, the guild of Ainz Ooal Gown has become more powerful than ever. 

Overlord, as always, is shrouded in mystery. Despite the release of Season 4, the series has left many unanswered questions.

Is there any other player in the new world besides Ainz? Will Ainz ever return to the real world? What will happen to Nazarick?

The release date for Overlord Season 5 has yet to be confirmed or announced as of this writing.

After all, the show has just finished its fourth season, and fans are eagerly anticipating the new Overlord film, which will cover the Holy Kingdom arc.

The good news is that it will almost certainly happen in the future. The biggest concern right now is how long fans will have to wait before Overlord Season 5 is released.

Overlord still has a lot of light novel volumes to cover in terms of material.

The series has released 16 light novel volumes as of this writing. This means that Overlord Season 5 is still a possibility in the future. Not to mention that the series author, Kugane Maruyama, has stated that the Overlord series will end after Volume 18.

For the time being, Overlord fans should anticipate the release of the new Overlord film!
