Overlord Season 3 ended earlier this year, and the impression that it left on the fans was lasting. Even now, people are frustrated over the future of Overlord anime being up in the air, and that just goes to show us how much the series is loved. The anime adaptation of Overlord Season 3 was great.
It wasn’t perfect, but it was still satisfying to watch and just like you all, I want another season soon. But when exactly will we be getting Overlord Season 4? Is a 2019 return possible for the show? Do we have to wait longer? We’ll be discussing that and everything else we know about Overlord Season 4 so far in this post, so let’s get started!
So the big question is, will Overlord Season 4 return in 2019? The answer to this question is, not likely. Overlord Season 4 will likely take longer to produce because the story of the light novels doesn’t connect properly with Season 3 just yet.
Once that is accomplished, we’ll see the production for Overlord Season 4 begin, and that will take quite some time because Madhouse wouldn’t want to rush anything. So, the question that remains now is, when will we see Overlord Season 4 return? Nothing can be for sure just yet. In my opinion, there is a very, very slim chance of Overlord returning in 2019, but I’m not going to rule out the possibility.
However, in my opinion, Overlord Season 4 will likely be back in the second half of 2020, or maybe early 2021. That’s just when I see the show returning. I doubt that it’ll happen before that, so we’ll just have to wait and see. As far as the story goes, I’m pretty sure that Season 4 will be even better than Season 3. The show has managed to surpass itself on countless occasions, and I hope it continues to do so in the future as well.

Overlord Season 4 hasn’t been confirmed yet. So, for those of you who are wondering if anything’s been said, the answer is no. We’ve not got much information on the release of Overlord Season 4, but we do have a general idea on what’s happening behind the scenes.
Aside from being understaffed, Overlord also has the problem of the novels being close to the anime. When season 3 finished, it ended at a point where the anime needs to wait to be able to continue even further.
We cannot move forward until another novel comes out and once that happens, we’ll see the beginning of the production of Season 4 of the show. Overlord certainly won’t be back in 2019. In my opinion, we’ll see the show return in either 2020, or 2021. Anything before that is going to be rushed work, and it won’t be half as good as it could’ve been.

According to some rumors, Overlord Season 4 is closer than a lot of people expect. The show may enter production soon, and we may be lucky enough to get a new season within a year from now.
While the chances of it coming out in early 2020 are really low, I do think that the chances of it coming out in Summer 2020, or Fall 2020 are very high. The production for the anime should begin in October or November 2019 in my opinion. We’re very excited for the return of Overlord 4, and I hope you’re too.
