The Overlord Season 4 release date has been confirmed for July 2022.
The exact airing time frame for the fourth season was announced during a special live YouTube program on March 12, 2022.
The event covered many topics, including the light novel Overlord Volume 15 and the release date of the Isekai Quartet: Another World movie, but the highlight of the event was the Overlord Season 4 trailer.
During the event, Overlord Season 4 voice actors Satoshi Hino (Ainz), Yumi Hara (Albedo), and Eimiri Kato (Aura Bella Fiora) were featured in a funny skit about the characters, even dubbing some scenes live.
The first Overlord Season 4 preview trailer was released on December 17, 2021.
The first announcement of the Overlord 4 anime TV series was made in the spring of 2021. In addition, an Overlord movie about the storyline of the Holy Kingdom was also officially confirmed!
Overlord season 4 story confirmed
It’s been too confirmed that the new Overlord anime projects will span the storylines from Kugane Maruyama’s light novel series through the Paladin of the Holy Kingdom arc.
“The total number of episodes and how far the story will go is still a secret, but honestly it seems like I hear the screams of footsteps coming from behind,” Maruyama said. “Yes of course. But if I ignore the pressure an author feels, I’ll be genuinely glad you all enjoy the show. But really, oops…”
Therefore, it seems likely that the Overlord Season 4 anime TV show will adapt the light novel Volumes 10, 11 and 12. Next, the Overlord movie will adapt Volume 13, completing the Paladin of the Holy Kingdom storyline.
