As soon as the 3rd season concluded, all eyes were set upon the next one. Now, fans are getting impatient over the release date of the 4th season. So without wasting any more time, let’s talk about the release date of Season 4.
There is no reason that Overlord Season 4 shouldn’t get green-lit. The sales, popularity, and even source material are there. So we all can expect the next season to get aired soon. But, don’t expect it to release in 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic had shut down all the production houses this year.
So, you can expect it to be released by early 2021 or, in the worst case, it will get pushed into 2022. Anyways, don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated. And, as soon as any news is out, you’ll be the first one to know.
Overlord Season 4 Plot
Overlord Season 4 will pick up where the third season ended. The story will continue showing the growth of Ainz and maybe he will adopt the role of the strongest leader ever. There is no doubt that he is becoming strong and with every passing day, he is also at the threat of others stealing his power away. He will survive his reign from the thorns planted by others. Maybe, we will see the real Momonga in the season.
We saw the Frost Dragons in the third season, so they are still on the loose and need to be defeated. In Overlord Season 4, we can see their defeat at Aniz’s hands. The sisters Negredo and Rubaredo may have a prominent role too as well. Overlord Season 4 will have volume 10 as its adaptation.
