OVERLORD TV Anime Announces Fourth Season And Theatrical Film

Studio Madhouses anime adaptation of the Overlord light novel series will surprisingly continue on with a new season and film after the third season concluded back in October 2018.

The Overlord TV anime adaptation from Studio Madhouse originally concluded in October 2018 after three seasons (totaling 39 episodes), a 2016 OVA and a two-part 2017 anime film-  leaving most fans to assume that there would be no further anime adaptations after the franchise lay dormant for so long. 

However, much to their delight, it was announced that  the isekai adventures of  Ainz Ooal Gown will be continuing on with a fourth anime season.  In addition, a new anime film is also in the works which will tackle the Holy Kingdom Arc of the light novel series.

To commemorate the announcement, so-bin, the artist for the light novel series released the stunning poster below. He also shared his excitement, stating, "At last, Volume 10, one of my particular favorites, is being animated. I sure would love to experience that impression of gobsmacked ickiness I felt when reading the manuscript, now in anime form. Looking forward to it!"

The ongoing light novel series from Kugane Maruyama and so-bin was first serialized onine in 2010 and has released 14 volumes to date.

When Momonga logs in one last time just to be there when the servers go dark, something happens--and suddenly, fantasy is reality. A rogues' gallery of fanatically devoted NPCs is ready to obey his every order, but the world Momonga now inhabits is not the one he remembers.
