Anime is a Japanese form of animation or rather the word anime means any kind of animation in the Japanese language. Anime has emerged and is getting more and more noticed along with other TV shows and movies. Anime movies and studio ghibli movies are also being brought into the limelight and are loved and adored by many Japanese or even fans of other cultures. Overlord is one such show which is an anime tv show that is based on a fantasy novel. Overlord is the story of a man trapped inside a video game and all the adventures he succumbs to.
After over two years, people’s most favourite anime series ‘Overlord’ is finally set to return with season 4, along with a new original movie! As is the nature of adapting manga stories and depictions, anime fans are used to long breaks between seasons but after a certain amount of time, they tend to worry whether the show may stay on or be cancelled as there is no definite way of knowing through cast or crew.
It’s been over two years since season 3 of the hit dark fantasy anime ‘Overlord’ concluded and we are dying to know what’s going on. Read on to get to know what happens about the show.
Seasons One, Two and Three – Overlord
The online game sleeps down, the gamer refuses to shut down, and he gets trapped into the game and becomes Momonga, a powerful wizard. As Mmomonga starts controlling the new fiction world with an iron fist slaughtering everyone who goes against him. Fans have been wanting to know what occurs next.
The anime depicts a story-taking place over an era in the dystopian future where a character is caught in a contest being discontinued. The last season ended on a cliff-hanger and left us with so many unanswered questions, which leaves a lot of spots for the next season to explore on, and hence the fans are desperate and eagerly waiting for season four.
Season four Release Date – Overlord
The good news for all Overlord fans is that it has been officially confirmed for season four. When the third season of Overlord ended back in October 2018, not many of us would have notioned we would go two years without any news about the next season.
That being said, fans of Overlord are already used to long hiatus’ or a break between seasons, so this is not necessarily surprising. Thankfully, it was officially confirmed on May 8th that the anime series would return with season 4. Whilst Overlord was formerly renewed, there is no information that indicates when season 4 would release.
Assuming that season 4 will experience a similar production schedule to previous instalments, fans can expect the anime to return in Fall 2021.
