The third season of the anime series Overlord premiered on 10 July 2018. So it has been quite a while since we have seen this action-packed anime series. And fans are getting impatient. Owing to the massive popularity this series has generated and the wide following it has been able to generate for itself across the globe, a fourth season is a natural expectation. But is the studio willing to listen to the million fans of the series worldwide and bring out another season of Overlord? Read on to find out.
Is The Fourth Season Happening?
The anime television series adaptation has been done by Madhouse. Now Madhouse has not yet issued an official statement clarifying whether there will be the fourth season of Overlord. But the way the third season ended, fans are already speculating that a fourth season is not only a natural and likely option but also a necessary one, in order to give the series a neat conclusion.
As of now, we can be sure that even if a fourth season is happening, it is unlikely to be out by 2020, given the situation caused by the current global pandemic. Also, it is equally unlikely that the fourth season is about to hit the screens in even 2021 since the studio itself is yet to announce a renewal of this massively popular anime series.
