Overlord Season 4 Release Date, News, and Everything You Need to Know
On May 8, 2021, it was announced as part of the livestream that Overlord will get a 4th season. That is not all as there will be a movie to be released soon. Unfortunately, the release date of this new season is not yet confirmed as it seems like the production has just started.
Fans have made theories that there is a chance that the anime will make its premiere in 2022. For now, fans would have to wait for other updates like the trailer or the season's total episodes.
In terms of the plot, fans are aware that the first three seasons covered volumes 1 to 9. With this, it is most likely that the new season will comprise volumes 10 to 12. Since there is a movie to be released as well, this means that the film will adapt volume 13. As of writing, there are 14 volumes, and the story hasn't ended yet.
If the popularity of Overlord continues and considering that the story is far from ending, there is a chance that a season 5 will follow soon. Those who have not watched Overlord can binge-watch the series on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu before season 4 is released. It has been more than 2 years since season 3 was released so a refresher might be needed by those who followed the story before.
