The scriptwriter of the series discussed the possibility of the fourth season at AnimagiC 2019 in Germany, saying that it was “extremely likely” that it would be produced. The plot revolves around an online role-playing game, which takes on a reality of its own and traps its last player inside.
The protagonist is a man who plays a lich called Momonga (He is the guild master of Ainz Ooal Gown) in a MMORPG. He manages to preside over one of the strongest guilds in the game and to even create its own dungeon filled with evil NPCs called the Great Tomb of Nazarick during its hey-day. Unfortunately, that was a long time ago, which is why the man is the sole member of his guild logged into the game when its server shuts down.
However, when the server shuts down, the man wasn’t logged out but instead transported to a fantasy world. Moreover, Nazarick has been brought along with him, while its inhabitants have been turned into full-fledged people whose personalities are as wicked as one would expect based on the write-ups provided to them by their creators.
From this starting point, Momonga sets out to explore the fantasy world in which he has found himself, seeking to find out what happened, make sure that Nazarick remains safe, and see if his guild-mates have been brought to the fantasy world as well.
All the previous seasons mainly focused on Ainz Ooal Gown (formerly known as Momonga), so it’s already expected that the suspense will be filled in and continue from where it left off. The plot may revolve around Ainz and what path she decides to take while facing various new obstacles.
The ninth volume of the novel had already been demonstrated in the third Season, thus we anticipate that the fourth season is likely to focus on the tenth and eleventh volume. Moreover, following the cliffhanger ending of season 3, we are sure there will be many twists and difficulties for Aniz.
Season Four of Overlord has already been renewed. And as per the scriptwriter of the show, Yukie Sugawara, season 4 is expected to be out in Japan in July by next year, 2021.
