The Black Clover, a fantasy anime based on Yuki Tabata’s manga collection, captured the hearts of the fans for four seasons straight. However, the fourth season closed on a promise of an “important announcement,” and it kept fans of the show on the hook for a long time.
The show stood out from the crowd with its absorbing plot, interesting magic theme, and compelling main characters. It is a story about the underdog Asta, who is born in a world of witchcraft and wizardry, devoid of magic. He and his childhood friend Yuno, who is a powerful wind magician, try to overcome the odds and become the Wizard King.
The story of this anime is captivating, and it gained a huge fan base over the course of years. In February 2021, it was announced that the Black Clover would end its broadcast at episode 170 on March 30, 2021, followed by an important announcement that left quite the impression.
Allegedly, the anime has reached the point where 10% of episodes are fillers, so the show creators decided to give the manga a chance to get ahead to get sufficient content to work with and avoid filler. That being said, the doors for season five are not shut just yet, and in this article, we are going to discuss about everything we know about it so far.
Since Black Clover debuted on TV screens in 2017, it has been moving at a very impressive pace and has given us 170 episodes so far. The first two seasons aired in quick succession from 2017 to 2018, and each consisted of a whopping 51 episodes. Season 3 aired in 2019, and in April 2020, the show stopped airing due to a COVID-19 pandemic, which was the case with numerous shows at that point in time.
The Studio Pierrot, also known for the seemingly never-ending Naruto franchise, ran the rest of Black Clover episodes until March 2021. At this point, the show creators announced that, for now, the series was over. However, they also said that we should expect another “important announcement” soon, which was very cryptic yet enticing.
Details of season 5 have not been imminent so far, but it looks like the important announcement referred to the upcoming Black Clover movie, which was revealed on March 28. There is no official release for that either, and speculations claim that it is likely that it will be set for release sometime in 2022.
This means that season 5 will likely have to wait until later in 2022 at the earliest. So even though there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding this project, the hope remains alive that we will see season 5 sooner rather than later. In the meantime, let us see the potential cast for it.
