It’s been a considerable stretch of time since the immensely popular anime Black Clover took a hiatus to gear up for its grand finale. Commencing its journey on October 3, 2017, this series cultivated a massive fanbase thanks to its unique blend of heartwarming moments and gripping, action-packed storylines characteristic of the shonen genre. While the anime hasn’t yet made its triumphant return since the conclusion of its fourth season in 2021, there’s still a chance to delve deeper into the Clover Kingdom with the new movie, Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, which made its Netflix debut in June 2023. However, fans are left hanging on the precipice of anticipation, eager to witness Asta and Yuno’s exploits in the face of their most formidable adversary yet, as well as the new powers they’ll unlock in the ultimate showdown. Yūki Tabata, the mastermind behind the manga, is actively crafting new chapters, and despite the brevity of the previous season, consisting of just 16 episodes, there’s a wealth of excitement in store for Season 5 when it eventually graces our screens.

But before we dust off our grimoires to embark on another magical adventure with Asta and his companions, let’s delve into everything you need to know about Black Clover Season 5.
When Is Black Clover Season 5 Coming Out?
Regrettably, as of now, there’s been no official announcement regarding the precise release date of Black Clover Season 5. This is largely due to the ongoing creation of the manga as I put these words down. With no updates from the studio, the earliest we can realistically anticipate Black Clover Season 5 is in the fall of 2024. The latest addition to the Black Clover universe came in the form of the film Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, which graced our screens on June 16, 2023. It’s worth noting that Studio Pierrot, the creative force behind the anime’s animation and distinctive art style, takes its time to meticulously craft those breathtaking battle sequences we’ve all come to love.
Where Can You Watch Black Clover?
At present, viewers in the US have the pleasure of streaming Black Clover on platforms like Hulu and Crunchyroll. For those who prefer to own their anime collection, all four seasons of the series are available for purchase on Apple TV and Amazon. It’s worth mentioning that Black Clover has just one film adaptation in its repertoire, and you can catch the latest cinematic addition, Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, exclusively on Netflix.
Is There a Trailer for Black Clover Season 5?
I’m afraid there’s no trailer or teaser available for Black Clover Season 5 just yet. However, fans can rest assured that Season 5 is indeed in the works, given the manga series’ ongoing success. Studio Pierrot, known for their remarkable work, recently treated fans to the return of Bleach with Part 2 of the Thousand-Year Blood War series, so they’re likely keen to maintain their winning streak. While you eagerly await the Season 5 trailer, you can pass the time by checking out the trailer for the Black Clover movie, which is available to watch.
What Happened In Black Clover So Far?
Asta and Yuno, two orphans and inseparable childhood friends, share a common dream – to become the next Wizard King, the most powerful magical warrior in the Clover Kingdom. Yuno possesses exceptional magical talents, a rarity in their world, while Asta, on the other hand, lacks any magical ability, a rarity in itself. However, fate has a surprising twist in store for Asta when he discovers a unique and mysterious power while attempting to rescue Yuno. This newfound Anti-magic ability holds the potential to reshape the destiny of the Clover Kingdom.
With his Anti-magic powers in tow, Asta embarks on a journey to join the prestigious Magic Knights alongside Yuno. Their goal: protect the Clover Kingdom from various threats and earn enough recognition to compete for the coveted title of Wizard King. Yuno finds himself welcomed into the ranks of the elite Golden Dawn squad, while Asta, due to his unusual abilities, ends up with the misfit Black Bulls – the lowest-ranked squad brimming with eccentric members.
But adversity only fuels Asta’s determination as he faces formidable magical adversaries, including fallen magic knights and immensely powerful elves. Alongside the formidable captains Yami Sukehiro and William Vangeance, Asta and Yuno set out on epic battles and unravel the mysteries of the hidden demon realm lurking beneath the Clover Kingdom. Little did they know that their captains, Yami and William, hold the keys to opening the door to this perilous dimension.
As the story unfolds, and Yami and William fall into the clutches of darkness, Asta, Yuno, and their fellow magic knights must regroup, train relentlessly, and prepare to confront the looming threat of demons that could unleash chaos upon their world.
Do You Need To Watch Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King Before Season 5?
Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King is a standalone movie, offering a concise glimpse into the history of the Wizard Kings predating Julius Novachrono’s era. It unfolds its storyline after the climactic battle against the Elves but before the commencement of the Spade Kingdom arc. Here’s the good news: you don’t necessarily need to watch the movie as a prerequisite to diving into Season 5. You can seamlessly transition from Season 4 to Season 5 without missing a beat.
However, it’s worth noting that the movie is considered part of the official lore, and while not mandatory viewing, there might be subtle references or nods to events from the movie woven into Season 5. So, whether you choose to enjoy the movie or not, the upcoming season promises an exciting continuation of the Black Clover saga.
