Overlord Season 4: Release Date and Expected Plot

Overlord is a one-of-a-kind anime whose plot has gotten viewers hooked on it. The show is based on light novels that have the same name and are written by Kugane Maruyama. The light novels were brought to life in 2015 by MadHouse. After the launch, they stopped with season 3 in 2018, making fans wonder when Overlord season 4 will be released. Since season 3 ended with a cliffhanger, fans are waiting much more eagerly for the next season to find out what will happen.

Overlord Season 4: Release Date

Overlord season 4 will be released on July 5, 2022. New episodes will roll out in Japan at 10:00 p.m. JST.

The last episode of season 3 aired on October 2, 2018. Scriptwriter Yukie Sugawara said at the AnimagiC convention in 2019 that there would be another season and that season 3 was not the end of Overlord. Another thing that confirmed the release of season 4 is that a lot of content is available since only nine volumes have been used yet.

Overlord Plot

Overlord’s plot is a bit unusual, and this is why fans adore it. The hit anime show’s story revolves around a virtual game (Yggdrasil) in 2125 that is about to shut down permanently. But, just before it happens, Momonga enters and explores it. When he enters the game, he changes into the character Aniz Ooal Gown, a powerful sorcerer.

Suddenly, the server shuts down, and Momonga gets stuck in Aniz’s body in the virtual game. In addition, all the other characters in the game have evolved into distinct personalities. Aniz tries to figure out what’s happening. And how many other characters are stuck in the same position as him with so much happening? Furthermore, he has to figure out a way to go back home.

Season 4 Plot

Overlord’s anticipated season will begin with volume 10 and continue until volume 12 of the light novel series since each season is based on three volumes.

Season 3 ended with a battle between Gazeff Stronoff and Ainz Ooal. During the battle, Gazeff died, and Ainz became the ultimate sorcerer of the kingdom. However, the episode didn’t end with that, but with the words “And the story goes on,” which gave fans mixed feelings.

Overlord season 4 will begin with Aniz bringing new changes to his newly acclaimed kingdom. He will try to turn it into a paradise for all species and races residing in it. He will also form many enemies in different countries.

Season 4 will also show viewers Ainz exploring around, looking for lost rune magi while moving toward the Dwarf Kingdom, which will probably be under attack.


In Overlord season 4, many old characters grow and progress. Some of the characters you will see in the next season are Ainz Ooal Gown, Demiurge, Albedo, Aura Bella Fiora, Shaltear Blood, Cocytus, Mare Bello Fiore, and Gargantuan.

How Many Volumes of Overlord Are There?

There are a total of 16 volumes of Overlord Light novels.
