The Overlord Season 4 release date is coming up in Summer 2022 and fans are hyped for it. It has been a few years since the anime adaptation of Kugane Maruyama and So-bin’s original light book series wrapped up its third season.
The anticipation is only growing and the franchise will be returning in a big manner. The TV anime will not only come back for a fourth season but also a new Overlord movie is coming.
Ahead of its return, the first details for the new Overlord Season 4 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music have been unveiled.
The official Twitter account for the franchise stated that OxT will return to create the Overlord Season 4 OP “HOLLOW HUNGER” after performing the openings for the previous two seasons (and the third season’s finale episode).
Mayu Maeshima (who formerly performed as part of the MYTH&ROID group in prior seasons) will provide the Overlord Season 4 ED theme, titled “No Man’s Dawn.”
In 2010, Kugane Maruyama launched the Overlord light novel series online. In 2012, Kadokawa’s Enterbrain label published the series in print with drawings by so-bin. On November 26, 2014, Satoshi Shio began serializing the manga adaptation, with art by Hugin Miyama, in Kadokawa Shoten’s manga magazine, Comp Ace.
Although we know that Overlord Season 4 comes out in July 2022, no specific release date or foreign licensing arrangements have been announced as of this writing. Also, Naoyuki Itou will remain as Studio Madhouse’s director. Yukie Sagawara will remain as the series writer, and Satoshi Tasaki will return to create character designs for the upcoming season.
Satoshi Hino as Ains Ooal Gown, Sumire Uesaka as Shalltear, Yumi Hara as Albedo, Emiri Kato as Aura, Masayuki Katou as Demiurge, Yumi Uchiyama as Mare, and Kenta Miyake as Cocytus have all been confirmed as returning cast members.
The new Overlord movie also does not have a release date. It has been announced that it will adapt Volume 12 of the original light novels. Presumably, this means Overlord Season 4 will cover Volumes 10 and 11, although there’s still a chance to catch up. Crunchyroll now has the first three seasons of Overlord available to stream.
We expect season four to follow in the footsteps of the preceding three seasons. Each were adapted from three volumes of the light novel series. When Overlord 4 premieres, it’s possible that both sections of the “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” storyline will be adapted.
This suggests that the fourth season might include more than thirteen episodes. But, because we don’t have any official confirmation, we can only speculate. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
