Overlord is a one of the most popular and best isekai anime and it is based on the light novel of the same name by Kugane Maruyama (Story) and so-bin (Art). Speaking of so-bin, a new Alter figure of Lupusregina Beta that's based on an illustration by so-bin was announced at Megahobby Expo 2021.
We are hoping to hear more news about Overlord Season 4 soon, because a lot of anime, including The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 and Blue Lock have been confirmed for 2022 release so far. Madhouse, who animated Overlord, also have a new anime called Police in a Pod releasing that year.
With a new trailer video release though, the wait is finally over and we finally have a confirmed release of July 2022 for Overlord Season 4!
Before we get into everything we know about Overlord Season 4 so far, here's a quick background on the series.
What is Overlord about?
Overlord is set in a virtual world called Yggdrasil where Momonga, the skeletal lord, and Ainz Ooal Gown, his guild of fellow monsters, have reigned for 12 years. But with the game shutting down, the guild's glory days look to be coming to an end.
That is until Momonga logs in one last time and something odd happens... The once fantasy world is now real and his gallery of fanatically devoted NPCs obey his every command. This new world, however, isn't quite the same as he remembers. The game may be over, but the epic tale of Ainz Ooal Gown is just beginning.
How many seasons of Overlord are there?
Right now, only three seasons of Overlord's anime have released with a fourth season on the way. Overlord Season 1 released in 2015, Overlord Season 2 released in 2018, and Overlord Season 3 released in 2018. All were animated by Madhouse.
