Overview of Season 1-2-3

To describe what you can expect in Overlord season 4, let’s have a quick recap on the first three parts.

Overlord Season 1: “End and Beginning”

(July 7, 2015, to September 29, 2015)

DMMORPG is a popular online game, also known as YGGDRASIL. But, after twelve years of being on the peak, it is about to close down. So, Momonga, a salaryman, shows one of its powerful characters. He is the lord of the dark society, Ainz Ooal Gown, and chooses to stay until its last minute.

Surprisingly, when the moment came, it appears everything was normal. His character was still living. And other characters seem to have evolved personalities of their own. It drives him to examine and explore the mystery.

Overlord Season 2: “The dawn of Despair”

(January 9, 2018, to April 3, 2018)

As a sequel, Ainz Oal Gown is still working on the puzzles in his new world. He then sent a regular command as the leader of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

Likewise, he manages his counterpart, Momon. This is his idea to collect funds and to get more data on the ground. Yet, Ainz has become careful about the risks of Slane Theocracy. And he got worried about the probability of other YGGDRASIL players to exist. 

It happened due to the destructive brainwashing of one of his servers. In the meantime, his loyal guards plan for the next step in their campaign. Albedo, Demiurge, and others prepared for Nazarick’s First War.

Overlord Season 3: “A Ruler’s Melancholy”

(July 10, 2018, to October 2, 2018)

After months of preparation, Ainz and the Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick are all set to fight. They want to control the world into action.

However, as Ainz Ooal Gown strengthens his war instruments, other empires usually live. Carne Village, which Ainz once saved from battle, continues to develop.

Although there were risks along the way, they were able to handle them. Moreover, the northeastern Baharuth Empire, a bloody ruler, converged on Nazarick’s rising dominance. The real action occurred in this season. A lot of warriors died, and empires rise.

These three seasons cover 9 out of 13 volumes of the novel. Hence, the animators indeed have sufficient material and sources to produce the fourth season.

Will There be Overlord Season 4?

The fourth season might get declared by the end of December 2020 or the beginning of 2021. Because of the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, the animated online series makers had to postpone the release for a few months. Hopefully, Overlord season 4 might get released before March 2021.

But the anime producers have not affirmed anything. The scriptwriter of the anime series has already pointed at the possibility of releasing the fourth season. That’s how we know for sure that the Overlord series is incomplete without the fourth season.

What to Expect From Overlord Season 4?

In Overlord season 3, we witnessed that Ainz discovered the Sorcerer Kingdom with Albedo and the other pledging community to him.

In Overlord season 4, we can assume that Ainz will reveal more of his skills. He will show his worth. Additionally, he will defeat all obstacles coming his way. He will succeed in ruling the Sorcerer Kingdom.

However, he is trapped in a video game; he will make sure that he is still the leader. Besides, Aniz will destroy his opponents so that he can develop a more solid empire.

This season will apparently have more action and power so that Ainz can lead the Sorcerer Kingdom successfully. It will give more enthusiasm and excitement to the followers of the series.

Closing Thoughts

The followers of Overlord are eagerly waiting for the fourth season to arrive soon. However, there is no official statement from the makers of the show regarding the release date. Let’s hope that 2021 brings good news for Overlord fans.
