Despite the fact that the genre has been present for decades, with great series such as “Visions of Escaflowne” and “Inuyasha,” isekai anime has grown in popularity in recent years. Some of the most successful anime of the past ten years may be categorized under the isekai umbrella, from “That Time I Got Reincarnated Into a Slime” to “Re: Zero — Starting Life in Another World.”

In a nutshell, isekai is a fictional plot in which a character from one reality, which is often similar to our own, is transported to a completely different, mostly fanciful realm. The term is written in Japanese, with the first character suggesting weird or unusual, and the second and third characters, denoting globe.

“Overlord,” which debuted in 2015, is one of the many popular isekai anime series that have been out in the last ten years.

The most recent season, the third, ended in 2018. Despite the fact that years have gone since the last episode of “Overlord,” the chance of a fourth season still exists. Season 4 of “Overlord”: Here’s what we know thus far.

When is Season 4 of Overlord coming out?

Madhouse, the company behind “Overlord,” has yet to confirm the fourth season. However, there are other grounds to assume that a Season 4 is on the way, whether it comes out soon or in the future.

In 2019, an anime event in Germany provided the first encouraging indicator that “Overlord” would return for a fourth season. Yukie Sugawara, the show’s scriptwriter, acknowledged the possibility of a fourth season as “very likely” during the event (in so many words, her statement was in Japanese and translated into German for the attendant audience). For example, a previous Reddit post that linked directly to Sugawara’s statement was removed. Nonetheless, while this isn’t an official confirmation, Sugawara has stated that “Overlord” Season 4 will air at some time in the future.

In addition, in Japan, the light novel series on which “Overlord” is based is still quite popular. For example, in the first half of 2020, volume 14 of the series placed third in light novel sales, trailing only novelizations of the enormously successful Demon Slayer series. Given how well-received “Overlord” is as a light novel, a new season of the anime should do chevalier. Season 4 is unlikely to be published until at least 2022, considering the current radio-quiet.

What is the plot for Season 4 of Overlord?

Momonga, a human child, is transferred into the realm of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the first episode of “Overlord” (think “RuneScape”). Momonga takes on the role of Ainz Ooal Gown, rather than simply commanding him. In the game’s universe of YGGDRASIL, though, Momonga was a good player, and Ainz is a formidable figure. He then embarks on his first journey through YGGDRASIL’s realm as a fanciful necromancer rather than a human playing a video game.

Ainz has decided to rule his own country, the Sorcerer Kingdom, towards the end of Season 3 of “Overlord.” Ainz’s hardships and tribulations as the ruler of his own realm become more or less the emphasis of the tale moving forward in the following storylines in the “Overlord” light book series. Given Ainz’s plunge into fantasy politics, Volume 10 of the light novel series, which should serve as the primary material for the start of Season 4, also introduces the rulers of other nations with whom he must now battle or make peace.

What will the Overlord Season 4 cast be like?

It’s hard to confirm the voice acting talent that will be included in the series’ forthcoming season without official word from “Overlord” Season 4, assuming it ever happens. If the show does return, it will very certainly use the same voices as before.

Satoshi Hino is the sole actor who has appeared in every episode of the series thus far. The role of Sai from “Naruto” is arguably Hino’s most well-known. He also voices the fiery warrior Kyojuro in “Demon Slayer” and team leader Daichi in the volleyball anime “Haikyuu!!.”

Masayuki Kato, who plays the demon NPC Demiurge, Sumire Uesaka, who plays the vampire Shalltear Bloodfallen, Yumi Uchiyama, who plays Mare Bello Fiore, and Emiri Kato, who plays Aura Bella Fiora, round out the primary cast. Should “Overlord” Season 4 ever see the light of day, we may anticipate all of these voice actors to return.
