Overlord is quite possibly one of the best anime series ever to grace Netflix’s streaming platform. It’s released a total of three seasons so far and season 4 is on the way. It’s directed by Naoyuki Itō and based on a light novel from Japan written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin.
The last episode of the third season of Overlord aired on October 2 of 2018. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting to learn what will unfold in the next season. The show had a strong critical reception, exceeding everyone’s expectation. The plot revolves around a skeletal “Overlord” character named Momonga. He gets trapped in a DMMORPG game and must search for clues and information in order to find his way out.
Overlord Season 4: Release Date and Renewal Status
There hasn’t been an official announcement from the creators of the show regarding season four’s release date. It has been reported that scriptwriter, Yukie Sugawara, stated at the 2019 AnimagiC convention that a fourth season is a possibility. Due to how popular the series is, it is likely the show will continue. There’s also a lot to be continued in the storyline considering it ended on a cliffhanger in season 3. We’re expecting the next season to be out before the end of the year, with teasers and trailers to come by mid-year.
Overlord Season 4: Storyline
No official plot or subplots have been published by the creators, but the storyline for season 4 is expected to revolve around Ainz and Demiurge. Season three left off with Ainz being proclaimed as the Sorcerer King which will in turn make him even more powerful and villainous moving forward. In addition, fans have speculated that the Great Tomb (from the previous seasons) could play a big role in the future storyline as well.
