Everything we know about the fourth season of Overlord
After almost two years since the end of the third season of Overlord, fans of the popular anime are beginning to question whether the series will return for a fourth season.
Like the adaptive nature of manga, anime fans are used to taking long breaks between seasons. But after a while, they began to worry about the cancellation.
Thus, it has been almost two years since the end of the third season of the popular dark fantasy anime Overlord. With that, the Series Mix decided to gather all the official information about the fourth season and, finally, when it will premiere.
The fourth season would initially debut in 2020. However, due to the current global situation, the producers were unable to finalize the episodes.
But the good news is that the attraction has been renewed for a fourth season and it is fully confirmed for 2021. However, the forecast is only for the second half of this year.
The source material
Regarding the source material, the most important thing we need to check is how many light novels the series has released so far and whether the series will end soon.
If the story ends, the series is less likely to continue. Or maybe the Overlord story is in the middle. But the story in progress is more likely to remain active and thus produce more seasons.
Also, the second important thing is how many books the series used to create the first three seasons of the Overlord anime. That way, there will probably not be any source material available for a while for the sequel, so the fourth season may be the last in a certain time.
How many volumes of Overlord are there?
The novels light of Overlord currently released in Japan have 14 volumes. Overlord also has a series of manga based on light novels. The manga series had 13 publications.
Is Overlord still in progress?
Overlord Light Novel is still in progress. Author Kugane Maruyama released the last volume in Japan on March 12, 2020. However, the author wrote one volume in 2017, one in 2018, and none in 2019. He also said that he plans on some other volumes.
How many Light Novels does Overlord Anime cover?
Overlord adapted three light novels per season, so volumes one through nine are in the text for the Madhouse anime adaptation. This means that volume 10 is where a new installment will begin if they don’t plan to cover some of the things they skipped over the first three seasons.
What will be the plot of the 4th season of Overlord?
As the trailer has not yet been revealed, we don’t know much about what could happen in the fourth season of Overload.
Meanwhile, Frost Dragon, who appeared last season, may not appear this season. Albedo finally confesses his feelings for his beloved master. Also, we hope to see a more powerful version of Ainz. Great Tomb and Capital Einzer will also be part of next season.
