What Is Overlord?
Based on the Japanese novel by Kugane Maruyama, Overlord debuted on Tokyo MX on July 7, 2015. Overlord revolves around a young man trapped in a video game as a warrior king. The dark fantasy show follows his journey as he sets out to make this new world his empire. The anime T.V series adapted by Madhouse has gone on to air for 3 seasons, each consisting of 13 episodes.
Since its release, the dark anime has been one of the most prominent shows on Netflix. Produced by Madhouse, the first season contains the first three volumes of the novel. Due to its increasing popularity, the show was immediately renewed for two more seasons. With an IMDb rating of 8/10, the show has been a smash hit. And we have now learned that Netflix has renewed the show for a 4th consecutive season.
When Will Season 4 Release?
The fans of the series are hoping for the new season to be released in 2020. However, the production for the new season has been paused as of now. In the wake of the chaos caused by the pandemic, the show is likely to return in 2021 instead of 2020.
Overlord Season 4: Plot
The three seasons have concluded a total of 9 volumes of the light novel—each season composed of three volumes respectively. Overlord is an anime that is set in the world of an online role-playing game (RPG) called Yggdrasil in the year 2106.
The fourth season is likely to continue the novel further. It will consist of up to volume 11 or volume 12 of the book. Ainz will try to pick swashbucklers in this season. But several difficulties are on the way. Ainz, the protagonist of the show, will be shown in the manner of a supervillain with tremendous power.
Along with all this, the new season will introduce new characters and additional fandoms to further fuel up the excitement. The Great Tomb of Nazarick was seen at the end of season 3. Undoubtedly, the fourth season will behold nothing back when it comes to thrills, actions, and adventures.
