A movie is also in the pipeline
The wait has been long, but we finally received an update on Overlord season 4. The dark fantasy series was renewed in May 2021, and after almost a year, we have updates. The creators are not just planning the fourth part, they will also release a feature film.
Let’s read in detail.
The story so far
Overlord is a unique isekai series which takes place in an online role-playing game. The game’s servers are permanently shut down, but one player who is logged in gets trapped. He is transported to this gaming world, with all the NPCs still present. He thinks of his life back home, and realizes he has nothing to lose. With his enormous stats, he is capable of being a very powerful being. His name was Momonga, but changes it to Ainz Ooal Gown, the new overlord of the game.
Overlord is action-packed, and the pacing is swift and captivating. The overpowered lead character, and the supporting characters are all interesting. By the end of season 3, we see Ainz still on a quest for power. He plans to take full advantage of the wars between the humans, demi-humans, and the heteromorphic NPCs.
Season 4 of Overlord will be out on 2022, with no exact date announcements. However, we can expect it to roll around October, along with other massive titles. Others speculate a summer release, after looking into the anime’s previous release dates.
The staff at Madhouse is simultaneously working on the film as well. It will dive deeper into the Overlord universe and can adapt an entire volume. Until then, let’s wait for season 4 to arrive and see Ainz’s plans for world domination.
