If we put all the popular shounen anime in one show, the result will certainly be Black Clover. This anime has different plot points from different popular anime but is also one of the most widespread anime in modern times.
However, this long-running series paused in 2021; there has been no news of its sequel since then. But Netflix has recently announced “Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King” Movie is coming this year very soon by releasing a trailer.
So, we will dive deep into what, when, and where to expect from Black Clover’s possible sequel, and we will also tell you everything we know so far.
What Is The Storyline Of Black Clover?
The anime is an adaptation of Yuki Tabata’s manga, Black Clover, featuring two orphans, Asta and Yuno, as the primary protagonists.
Netflix officially explains the shounen series to new audiences: “Two orphans raised as brothers become rivals as they vie for the title of Wizard King, the highest magical rank in the land.”
Yuno is blessed with a lot of mana and has the potential to be the greatest Wizard King of all time with his five-leaf-grimoire. On the hand, Asta manifests a dull sword with no magic. But his physical capabilities are enough to destroy any simple mage.
It is later discovered that Asta’s grimoire has a devil sealed within it. Asta, the unlikely hero, wields anti-magic from the devil to cancel out any form of magic.
Just like other typical shounen anime, the story of Black Clover primarily follows Asta’s journey of beating all the odds and making his dream come true by becoming the Wizard King of the Clover Kingdom. We know that the plot structure of Black Clover ridiculously sounds familiar in the shounen anime genre, but the series offers all the spices which a typical shounen anime fan desires.
What Happened At The End Of Black Clover Season 4?
The 4th season ended with a major cliffhanger after Yami and William got kidnapped by the evil Dark Triad. All the Clover Kingdom’s knights went into massive training to power themselves up for having a massive face-off against the Dark Triad and the Spade Kingdom.
Next, selected Magic Knights and the Squad Captains prepare to attack the Spade Kingdom to stop all the devils from coming out on the human realm.
Is Black Clover Season 5 Renewed?
The Black Clover 5th season is still in unknown status. The final arc of the manga is still ongoing. But the release date regarding the 5th season may come out later when the manga is near its end. However, another possibility is that the season 5 announcement may happen after the end credit scene on Netflix.
Talking about the film, a new movie on this series, “Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King,” is coming to Netflix on June 16, 2023, after the streaming giant postponed the March release date. The plot of this film will be more of a side story with Asta, Yuno, the Black Bulls, and all the magic knights of the Clover Kingdom will team up against the former Wizard King, Conrad Leto.
The film will feature new characters like Princia Funny Bunny, Milly Maxwell, and Edward Aberache. All these new characters have little chance to ever appear in the anime’s main plot. But many new updates regarding these characters will come out soon as the film’s release is near.

Season 5 will undoubtedly start with a huge bang. As of now, there will be a war between the Clover Kingdom and the Spade Kingdom, and many big revelations are about to happen. The manga is at its final arc after returning from a long break.
After disappointing many fans in the previous arcs, the final one has quite an intense and thrilling story. A lot of top-rank devils and other new races will feature in season 5. However, Asta’s Devil Union mode with Liebe will be the most badass thing for the fans and the viewers.
Even though Black Clover is the story of two protagonists, Asta and Yuno, the mangaka focuses more on Asta’s character development. After revealing Yuno’s origin connected to the royal family, there are a lot of stories to be told about Asta’s parentage. We can only hope that season 5 may deliver that to Black Clover fans.
No matter what, even if there is no official update. Black Clover season 5 will come out soon because of its massive popularity. All we can do is wait for the upcoming film because the movie may give away an update regarding season 5 of Black Clover.
