- Kamen Rider Zi-O (仮面ライダージオウ,Kamen Raidā Jiō) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series.
Kamen Rider Zi-O
in February 2019 and later Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger in March 2019. After the finale of Zi-O, Ryusoulger was joined by Kamen Rider Zero-One in the Superhero Time block.
The motif of the show is time. The show tagline is "Go beyond space-time!" (時空を超えろ！,Jikū wo koero!). Much like Kamen Rider Decade, it commemorates all of the Heisei-era Kamen Riders to date.
The average ratings of the series was 3.0%.
Producer Shirakura stated that like Decade, Zi-O was the culmination of the entire Heisei-era, which would end when Prince Naruhito ascended to the Japanese throne in 2019.
- Kamen Rider ZX was featured in a special entitled "Birth of the 10th! Kamen Riders All Together!!" Unfortunately, it did not lead into a TV series.
Viewership ratings from Build were at a new low, and Shirakura noticed that those ratings were 40% higher during Decade.
Shirakura was also extremely hesitant to bring back former actors as well as deal with the tricky concepts of time travel like Den-O, but his associate producers convinced him to tackle them as Shirakura was willing to give it a try.
Both Gaim and Ghost had began the idea of having multiple Riders use the same transformation belt, similar to how Super Sentai Rangers transform using the same device but in a more controlled setting.
Shirakura had liked the idea, and allowed both Geiz and Tsukuyomi to use a Ziku-Driver like Sougo to transform.
During the original designing stages for Zi-O's suit, Shirakura was interested in the motif of time itself he felt it symbolized the Heisei-era, so "Rider" in katakana was added to Zi-O's mask for his default form.
To differentiate Zi-O's means of transportation and time travel, the Time Mazine was introduced as opposed to a train and other supernatural means.
Sougo Tokiwa, a high school student born in the year 2000, has always dreamed of becoming a king when he encounters a mysterious girl named Tsukuyomi, who hails from the future in a desperate effort to alter her dire future.
She presents Sougo with an ominous warning "You will become the king of all time, Kamen Rider Zi-O, a demonic king destined to rule the world.”.
Sougo takes up the mantle as Kamen Rider Zi-O to stop the Time Jackers from destroying the very fabric of space-time while protecting the legacy of the Heisei Kamen Riders that came before him.
During his journey alongside Geiz Myokoin, a Kamen Rider from Tsukuyomi's future, and the mysterious prophet Woz who reminds Sougo of his demonic destiny, they will meet their esteemed predecessors who they must gain their trust and powers from in order to create a new future for the Kamen Riders and mankind itself.
This is the story of a Kamen Rider who would be king, who will fight to save the past, present, and future, encountering the various Heisei Kamen Riders throughout space-time.

Each episode title is written in either katakana or hiragana, and includes the year relevant to that particular episode, which is often the premiere year of the original Legend Rider in the case of tribute episodes.
Starting with episode 30, this format is reversed, starting with the year first, then the title.
Similar to the previous two Rider series, many episodes still use the English language in most of their parts of the episode’s title, though there are exceptions.
As the show pays tribute to the Heisei period Kamen Riders, each episode title consists of a short phrase related to a particular Heisei Rider series and a year relevant to it.
