Madhouse is maddening. The production studio mixes up brilliant shows with poorly conceived timelines. We never know when the next season might drop.
How’s It Looking?
Season 3 ended way back in 2018. Season 4 might just release late 2020. But that seems quite unlikely. The show has not been renewed, officially, and lacks too much backing content. This in itself is no limiter as we have seen with other anime (Death Note). But we seriously hope there’s more to come from this one.
The best the fans can hope for right now is some concrete news about the next season as well as the light novels.
Yukie Sugawara has said that the series is “extremely likely” to have a fourth season.
Spoilers And The Future
While awaiting any 4-related news from the “Overlord” season, fans may want to catch up on the story by reading the light novel.
Season 4 of “Overlord” will document the circumstances that surround the establishment. The Sorcerer Kingdom and will depict Ainz facing challenges as a national leader as he lacks the expertise of lawmaking.
A comedy crossover anime, Isekai Quartet featured characters from Overlord in a Chibi style, much like the OVA. It also featured characters from the light novel series KonoSuba, Re: Zero − Starting Life in Another World, and The Saga of Tanya the Evil, all published by Kadokawa Corporation. The anime began airing on April 9, 2019.
Meanwhile, the 12th manga is not yet released in English which is another thing fans have to look forward to.
Overlord Season 4 will likely take longer to produce because the story of the light novels doesn’t connect properly with Season 3 just yet. Once that is accomplished, we’ll see the production for Overlord Season 4 begin, and that will take quite some time because Madhouse wouldn’t want to rush anything. So, the question that remains now is, when will we see Overlord Season 4 return? Nothing can be for sure just yet. Stay connected for upcoming updates.
