Overlord: What are the Possible Odds of Season 4? Fans might have been Up for a Surprise

The story is still ongoing in the light novels but no anime announcements have been made so far

Overlord is undoubtedly one of the best ‘stuck in a gaming world’ animes and had an overpowered protagonist to boot. The show has a large number of fans and currently, all of them are waiting for a fourth season to be announced.

Without a season 4, we will not know if Ainz managed to conquer Yggdrasil’s whole world of if someone more powerful than him came and stopped them.

Yeah, that’s where we are at right now. The story is still ongoing in the light novels, but many of the fans are anime-onlys and would rather wait till something comes out than read.

From the start of this year, we had been expecting an announcement and at this point, we have given up on any news arriving this year. Hopefully, the series might’ve just been delayed due to the pandemic.

The best way to see if the anime will get another season is to look at its popularity, sales, and source material. Around 90% of the time, that will provide enough information to know if the show goes on. For Overlord, the source material is the light novel and the manga version came from that. We have 14 light novel volumes currently and the author Kugane Maruyama said he plans to end it with book 17. 3 light novels were adapted for each season, so we are 9 novels down. But some parts have been skipped, which is common in many animes.

As for sales, the Blu-Ray sales of the anime had dropped since the first season, but the novels are selling really well. The merch is doing reasonably well.

In conclusion, a fourth season can very well happen. It can just take a little while.
