The fourth season of Overlord is one of the most expected anime returns of this year. After its first release, the anime was immediately loved by the anime community for its futuristic plot. The previous season of the anime was premiered back in October 2018. Since then, fans are eager to know more about the release date of Overlord Season 4.
Madhouse is the studio behind the production of this famous anime. Unfortunately, Madhouse is mainly known for its bad fame when it comes to producing sequels of anime series. Overlord is surely one of the few anime that has kept Madhouse production studio busy for a while now. With the rising of the fan following base and the success, the odds of a renewal of Overlord Season 4 are pretty high.
Fan’s have several questions about the upcoming season of Overlord. Are we going to have a Season 4 of Overlord or not? Will our main character Ainz be back with new difficulties in the forthcoming season?
When Will Overlord Season 4 Come Out?
“And the story goes on.”
This message was left in the finale of the third season of Overlord. And it was enough to suggest the surely there will be a fourth season of the anime. With the confirmation about the new season, there are speculations that the production of the sequel can start by the end of 2020.
Probably you will know that the story from the light novel series doesn’t end after the establishment of the Sorcerer Kingdom. So fans are demanding new challenges and more action in the new season.
Like any other novel, Overlord began as a web novel. Ultimately, it became popular enough to be transformed into a light novel series. Afterward, it was also adapted in the manga version and later on adapted into an anime. At the moment, Madhouse has released three seasons of Overlord which has covered 9 out of the 13 available volumes that have been published so far.
So, the production studio has sufficient material to bring out the fourth season from the left volumes of the light novel series. Since the second and the third season of Overlord came out within a short period, fans are now wondering on the release date of Overlord Season 4.
It is possible that the forthcoming season will be a two-cour season. By using the 10th and 11th volume of the light novel, a 13 episode cour can be produced. And furthermore, another 13 episode cour can be created by using the remaining two volumes as they are a two-part story named “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom.”
Overlord Season 4 Episodes Spoiler
We expect that Season 4 of Overlord will begin with Ainz handling the affairs related to the decay of the resources in his kingdom. After that, he intends to grow and make stronger his Adventure Guilds.
After finding the Sorcerer Kingdom, Ainz walked to the mayor’s hall to take over the throne of the fortress city E-Rantel . Along with Yuri and Albedo, Ainz proceeds into his new room to discuss some important problems. Also In the forthcoming season, Albedo attempts to express her feelings to his loved master.
Season 4 of Overlord will most presumably highlight some previous scenes. Other characters of the anime will also meet Ainz to inform about their progress in the new challenges. It is plausible to say that in Season 4 of Overlord some scenes may highlight Pandora’s Actor. Pandora will surely ask Ainz about his future intentions for the Sorcerer Kingdom. Though, Ainz himself is uncertain in what to do with his vast kingdom.
Later in the light novel, Ainz finally gets the idea to turn his empire into a utopia, where all races need to bend to him and worship him.
Overlord Season 4 Release Date
The production studio is trying to keep the anime marginally behind the source content to guarantee the release of new seasons. If Madhouse production studio chooses to make Overlord Season 4 in the following few months, there won’t be enough material for any further seasons. This could lead to a pause, and this is one of the main reasons why several great anime series got canceled in the past.
It is expected that Madhouse will hang on for the moment while waiting for the light novel series to publish two more volumes before releasing the Overlord Season 4. Fans of the anime can expect the release of Overlord Season 4 between summer 2020 or early 2021.
