Overlord Season 4 Release Date, Cast, Plot and More


The release of a fourth season of the anime television series Overlord has been officially confirmed.

So, when can we expect the fourth season of Overlord to air? How many volumes of the light book will be adapted for the upcoming season?

Overlord Anime Season 4 premiere date and number of episodes will be answered in this post, but first, some important information:

It’s a terrific isekai anime with dark fantasy aspects like Overlord, which is one of my favourites. Ainz Ooal Gown, formerly known as Momonga, is the protagonist of this anime.


A popular online game called YGGDRASIL has its servers shut down, and Momonga, the protagonist, finds himself sucked into the virtual world. Momonga sets out to discover what has occurred.

A Brief Description of The Overlord Series

It’s based on a light novel series by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin called Overlord. It was revealed on May 8, 2021, that there will be a fourth season of the show.

It will broadcast in July 2022. OxT’s “HOLLOW HUNGER” opens the show, while Mayu Maeshima’s “No Man’s Dawn” closes it.

How Many Volumes Of Overlord Are There?

The Overlord light novel series has 14 volumes published in Japan as of March 2022. As if that weren’t enough, there’s an Overlord manga out there.

There are presently 16 volumes of the manga out there. All the Overlord books are highly recommended if you are a fan of the Overlord books.

Is The Overlord Light Novel Finished?

This series of light novels is still active in the year 2022, though it is nearing its conclusion. Volume 17 of the Overlord series will conclude the series, according to the author.

The author, Kugane Maruyama, released volume 14 on March 12th, 2020 in Japan.

No new instalments were produced in 2021 due to the year’s end. On June 30, 2022, the release date for the 15th volume of the Overlord light novel is set.

Which Volumes Will Season 4 Cover?

Season 4 of Overlord will cover volumes 10 and 11 of the light novel series before concluding with volume 12. Three light novel volumes will be covered in the fourth season. The new film should be based on the 13th volume.

A three-volume adaptation was done for each season of the Overlord anime. Second and third seasons covered volumes 4 to 6, respectively, in their respective seasons.

Since the third season ended, you can check out Overlord Light Novel Volume 10 in English to see what happens next.

How Many Episodes Will Overlord Season 4 Have?

Season 4 of Overlord will feature 13 episodes. Exactly the same amount of episodes will be produced as in the previous three seasons.

That’s more than enough episodes to adapt three volumes of a light book. In addition, Overlord will run for five seasons in all. As a result, a fifth season of Overlord is on the way.

This year will see the release of the fourth Overlord season, as well as the Isekai Quartet movie and the new Overlord volume.

Studio Madhouse has done an excellent job with the anime adaption thus far, and I am confident that they will improve on the previous three seasons of Overlord.

I’m looking forward to the next season based on the trailer. Below, you can see the trailer for the film.

Will There be Any Casting Changes in Overlord Season 4?

It was revealed in a live stream announcement of Overlord Season 4 that some of the characters’ voices will be returning.

Satoshi Hino will reprise his role as Ainz Ooal Gown, Nazarick’s most revered Supreme Being and the series’ central figure.

As in Season 3, Yumi Hara will reprise her role as Albedo, the high-ranking yet needy succubus who was unfortunately shown to be a virgin in the third season.

Shalltear Bloodfallen, the harsh, icy, and deadly, yet extremely beautiful, tiny creature, is once again voiced by Sumire Uesaka. In Season 4, Kenta Myake will reprise his role as the Guardian Cocytus.

Both Aura and Mare will be voiced by Emiri Kato and Yumi Uchiyama, who will reprise their roles.

Demiurge, the blade-tailed seventh-floor Guardian and leader of NPC defences, is believed to be voiced once more by Masayuki Katou.

What Will Overlord Season 4 Be About?

Rumors are circulating that the Holy Paladin storyline will eventually be handled in the future full-length feature film that was announced by director Ito in 2021, however this is not yet confirmed.

According to the official plan, the fourth season would be a direct continuation of Season 3.

With a total of twelve episodes, the third season showcased Ainz’s quest for power as he hunted for two legendary monsters: The Giant of the East and the Demon Snake of the West.

Lord Ainz’s Sorcerer Kingdom and the Baharuth Empire are shown in Season 3 pretending to support each other before their treachery.

Nazarick and Re-Estize engage in a bloody duel, which results in the death of Gazef. King Ramposa III relinquishes control of E-Rantel after witnessing the true might of Lord Ainz. He kills 70,000 Re-Estize soldiers in a single spell.

Which Studio Is Handling the Animation for Overlord Season 4?

Madhouse, the studio behind such beloved anime as Death Note, One Punch Man, and Parasyte, is returning to provide a new season of the dark action series.

The show’s CG animation was criticised in the third season, so viewers are looking for an improvement this season.

Where Can You Catch Up on Overlord?

No worries if you haven’t finished watching Overlord’s first three seasons yet. All of us have erroneous actions. Trying to avoid making the same mistake again is all you need to do, as Ainz Ooal Gown would put it.

Make sure you watch Seasons 1 through 3 before Season 4 is released so that you don’t make the same mistake again and betray our terrible and torturous boss.

With a Hulu or Crunchyroll membership, you can watch the first three seasons of Overlord for free (with advertising).


The fourth season of Overlord has already begun production, according to the show’s official Twitter account. In December 2021, the anime’s official Twitter account released the first photos of the show.

Season 4 of Overlord will cover volumes 10 and 11 of the light novel series before concluding with volume 12.

The release date for Overlord Season 4 has been set for July 20, 2022. The second trailer for the anime series has also been released with the release date.
