The series has had four successful seasons so far, and fans are curious about the fifth one. Is the Familiar of 0’ already in production? Is it going to air soon? Keep on reading to find out about The Familiar of Zero Season 5 release date, cast, and much more.
The Familiar of Zero Season 5 Release Date
The series has had four seasons, with season one premiering in 2006, season 2 in 2007, season 3 in 2008, and season 4 in 2012. It has been almost 9 years, and we still haven’t heard any announcement regarding a fifth season. This is because the author of the light novel died in 2013 without completing the storyline. However, another author used his notes to develop two new volumes. And all of this material has already been used up to make the last four seasons. Thus, with the novels complete, there is no more source data available, making it highly unlikely for fans to get a fifth season. On the bright side, we might get an OVA in the future to give the story of Louise and Saito more closure and do justice to their epic stories.
The Familiar of Zero Season 5 Cast
If there is a fifth season or an OVA, the following two members will be returning for sure.
Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière- She is voiced by several artists, including Rie Kugimiya ( in the Japanese version), Cristina Valenzuela (in the English version), Mun Seon-hui (in the Korean version), and Migca Kazius (in the Spanish version). She is the main character of the story which is horrible at magic which makes her lonely. She is also Tristain’s crown princess, who puts more pressure on her to become a perfect mage.
Saito Hiraga- Voiced by Satoshi Hino in the Japanese version, Jonathan Meza in the English version, Jang Kim in the Korean version, and Luisma Albarracin in the Spanish version, Saito is Louise’s familiar. He is an ordinary Japanese boy but ends up developing a magical power of his own!
Apart from these two characters, Kirche von Zerbst ( a fire magic expert mage), Queen Henrietta de Tristian (the Queen of Tristian), Siesta (one of the maids at Louise’s school), and Viscount Jean-Jacques Francis de Wardes (Captain of the Griffin Knights) are also important characters who may appear in the fifth season.
The plot of the Familiar of Zero
Revolving around Louise, the story deals with her failure to be a good magician. She basically ends up causing an explosion every time she casts a spell. And this causes everyone to call her Louise the Zero. When the time comes to summon a familiar, Louise tries really hard to decrease her loneliness in this world full of magic, spells, and life-threatening situations. Unfortunately, unlike everyone else who summons a magical creature, Louise summons a practically useless Japanese boy named Saito Hiraga.
She treats him quite badly initially, beating him with a whip, making him do her chores, and sleeping on hay. However, the two end up getting really close and even falling in love. The Familiar of Zero deals with Louise and Saito’s developing friendship and feelings. Their increasing powers and saving each other’s life along with everybody else’s. If there is a season 5, it will focus on their relationship and bring them even closer together as they embark on thrilling adventures.
Unfortunately, there is no trailer of the Familiar of Zero Season 5 as of yet. However, we will update you as soon as we get any official announcement regarding the season’s arrival and its trailer release.
