The fan favourite supernatural, magic and action anime, Overlord III has finally come to an end with Ainz dominating the world with his power. Now fans are wondering about when will Overlord Season 4 release.
The third season of Overlord was aired between July 10, 2018, to October 2, 2018, and the online game based series is becoming more and more popular. The plot of Overlord is based on the light novel with the same name.
Since the beginning of the Overlord anime, animators honestly follow the light novel which is written by Kugane Maruyama. It is expected that Overlord Season 4 will adapt the volumes 10, 11 and 12 of the light novel.
So the main question is, do the animators need more than expected time to make Overlord IV? To keep you updated the official announcement is yet to be made by the production studio Madhouse.
From the start, creators are pulling out content from three volumes per season. However, if animators decide to make Overlord Season 4 right now out of the volumes 10, 11 and 12, then they will not have enough material for producing next season. As volume 14 of the light novel series is expected to release in 2020 due to the workload and previous commitments of Kugane.
In an interview, in 2017 Kugane revealed that why volumes are taking forever to release.
Kugane said, “I thought the [story arc] was going to be long, which is why I split it into two volumes, he added, But the schedule isn’t set in stone, so you’ll have to wait a bit.”

If the 4th season follows the light novel series like the previous seasons, it is expected Ainz will plan to take over the throne of Sorcerer King.
