Overlord 4 will consist of 13 episodes.

This was confirmed on Overlord 4's official website after the fourth season's Blu-ray and DVD releases were announced.

Overlord 4 will follow the same 13-episode format as the first three seasons, with each episode lasting nearly 25 minutes. This brings the total number of episodes in the Overlord anime series to 52.

As a result, if you want to start watching the series, you must embrace Overlord for quite some time.

With Madhouse returning to Overlord 4, fans are speculating that the fourth season, like the first three, will be limited to 13 episodes. With no word on whether or not the episodes will be extended, Overlord 4 will most likely not be the anime series' final season.

After all, as of this writing, the Overlord light novel series has 16 volumes. There's a lot more to learn about Ainz Ooal Gown and his NPC floor guardians. The adventures of the Sorcerer King are far from over, with new characters and story arcs being introduced over time.

For the time being, Overlord fans can only rejoice that the show has been renewed after nearly four years of waiting. The good news is that Overlord is currently working on a film adaptation of the light novel's Holy Kingdom arc.

"Sorcerous Nation of Ainz Ooal Gown," the first episode of Overlord 4, was written by Kyosuke Takada and directed by Yukie Sugawara.

Because the series is still in its early stages, the pilot episode, which recounts the aftermath of the battle between E-Rantel and Ainz Ooal Gown, is still in refresher mode.

Overlord 4 is available for international viewers to watch on Crunchyroll and VRV with English subtitles.

Also, the fourth season is available with English subtitles on Ani-One Asia, BiliBili Global, and iQIYI in Asian regions.
